We always love your food, Urbans. We will be down for another nite out next week- cant wait! (Anne-Marie – October 2012)

We didn’t stay but had a meal and drink here. Thursdays live music night, it’s a vibrant, casual surfy place to enjoy an evening or a coffee and breakfast. It has a modern, surfy feel to the decor. I am a frequent visitor. Would definitely recommend this. (Barbie – August 2012)

A BIG THANK-YOU to all the team at Urban Beach, the jubilee tea cakes sandwiches, were amazing, loved the mini scones, home-made strawberry jam and clotted cream, delicious all of it. Thank-you for picking me out of the hat, the competition was so worth winning, once again thank-you all. As usual the service was excellent as it always is in your fine establishment, happy jubilee to you all. (Peter – June 2012)

Top live music on the Thursday. Book him again! The girls were all very attentive and helpful, and coming from a chilled surfing area I appreciated the relaxed atmosphere and the Aspalls Cyder! (Duncan – February 2012)

The meal was brilliant, so stuffed we could not do desert. Mark came in with Fee so we chatted with him a bit and told him how good the food was. Staff were very attentive and other than a bit of a grumpy table behind us who swapped tables three times (made us chuckle) the evening was fab. We ended up outside chilling out and watching Colin in his new home in the straw bales. (Angus and Sheri – November 2011)

I popped past Urban Beach last night and it was a perfect end to a great weekend.  I had the Cajun Chicken Caeser Salad which was AMAZING!!!!  This is my all time new favourite dish ever I think! I just wanted to say thanks for everything.  It was a really lovely evening.  We’re going to come across one Saturday for the paella which sounds really good too.

The best place in Boscombe! Seriously cooler than cool, good food, good drink – just a shame about the company – Rachel no Will! You even get weather updates in the toilet! Love it! All our love, Will and Rachel (Will and Rachel – 2011)

Yummy food, friendly, helpful staff and a lovely relaxed atmosphere makes Urban Beach my favourite local place. And the cocktails, especially the long island ice tea, with homemade cola; potent and delicious a very good combination. (Lisa – 2011)

I have to say my experiences at urban beach have always been good ones. From the friendly, polite staff to the fresh homemade food which I have to say has always been a delight. The interior is lovely, calm and a very relaxed feel to the place which compliments there live chilled out music they have on an evening. This quirky place is one of my favourites :) (Nancy – 2011)

We had a wonderful time at the Urban Beach Hotel in July. The food was delicious and atmosphere in the restaurant was great. We have even booked again in September and will be bringing friends with us to share the experience.

Just wanted to say how nice it is to have somewhere like this near us! My boyfriend and I saw in the new year here and even though it was new years eve, there wasn’t the usual long wait for cocktails that you’d expect from such a popular bar and the atmosphere was great, very welcoming! We recently went back to have a spot of lunch and again were not disappointed, food was lovely (the duck spring rolls were to die for) and the staff were very nice, which really made up for the horrible weather outside!! Keep up the good work guys, definitely a place to recommend, can’t wait for a chance to try out one of the rooms!

I’ve stayed for 4 nights and eaten in for three and would really struggle to find a single fault. Both service and food exceeded expectations (consistently too)

Really nice place to relax with friends and family, food’s great, brilliant place!

Came here on a recommendation and Very Impressed. Definitely pass on recommendations to friends. Nice to come somewhere that the food is locally sourced and fresh. Love the fresh orange juice machine.
