Live Music Sunday!

Thursday, November 24th, 2011

Come in from the cold this coming Sunday evening (November 27th), snuggle up next to our log burning fire or in one of our squishy booths and tuck into our ‘three courses’ (and a cocktail!) menu all for £20. You’ll also be able to listen to some soulful songs from our resident musician, Jon Cotton. The perfect way to end the month!

To book give us a call on: 01202 443960 and if you want to get your taste buds watering, take a look at our sample menu under the ‘menus’ tab.

And if you fancy having a go at making this month’s ‘Sunday night live’ cocktail at home, then have a little look at this recipe…

How to make an ‘Urban Rose’ – traditionally known as a ‘Rose Gimlet’ -

Urban Rose


50ml gin

15ml rose syrup

2-3 dashes angostura bitters

A dash of lime juice

Pour all of your ingredients into a Boston Shaker (the silver thing that us bar folk use to shake cocktails). Stir in some cubes of ice and strain (using a drink strainer which looks like a little sieve) into a martini glass. To finish it off, we think it looks nice to add a coil of lemon, as pictured ;)


Celebrate autumn and winter at Urban Beach

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

Scarecrows welcome

Join the team at Urban Beach this coming Sunday November 5th from 12.30pm to celebrate all that is autumn and winter in their Harvest Festival!

The team will be out on the deck serving mulled wine, spiced cider and tasty pork rolls (£7 for a roasted pork roll with stuffing and home made apple chutney, dressed mixed salad leaves and chunky chips – yummy). For those of you with a sweet tooth, they’ll have cakes courtesy of the very lovely baker Kay. She’ll be making apple and carrot cake, and she’ll even be making some toffee apples for the kids – and for the big kids of you out there ;)

Solo artist, ‘One Man Destruction Show’, will be performing throughout the afternoon too. (He’s not quite as scary as he sounds!)

So be sure to wrap up warm and head on down. They’ll be finishing around 6pm so you can go on to enjoy some firework displays too.

Scarecrows welcome. X
