We enjoyed our dinner here on the first evening of our stay so much, we ate here on our second night too. We sat outside in the covered area for or dinner drinks, pleasantly surprised by the heated seats. We chose from the special board and the main menu each evening, and both meals were delicious, cooked to perfection and served by attentive friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble and we enjoyed our evenings immensely. This hotel is truly a gem. Ali B

We dined before going to an event two of us had the ribeye steak when it came it looked like a round steak you might get from a frozen food supermarket,we asked for it medium it was dry and tasteless not a steak you would get away with serving at jenkins the others had the burger which was better than the steak. We sat at the round table in the corner outside sea road side and kept getting the smell of the sewer the last time we sat there we had the same problem and told the waitress this was the first time we have been back since and thought the problem would have sorted it hasnt wouldnt risk it again me and my two brothers live down the road but will head back to reef encounter

A return visit and I was as equally impressed as my first visit. This is quickly becoming my favourite restaurant and so I look forward to my next visit and many more.

I'm solo traveller & thought it might be a bit much in a bar restaurant but the menu looked great.... Your team are all the right side of welcoming & very kind. Food was great - the main Hake was next level. I had breakfast this morning - same great care & attentiveness. Really a great find if I come back to the area I'd recommend. Anna

We went to the urban beach hotel last sunday for one of their superb roast dinners. I tend to phone and book because Robert now needs a wheelchair to get out and about. We found this bistro/hotel about a year ago and I sent a review to tripadvisor. The food is excellent and so is the service.- nothing is too much trouble. I generally book so the staff know we are coming and arrange a table suitable for Robert and make sure the ramp is in place to aid entry. We do go to other restaurants in the Poole/Bournemouth to Christchurch area but return here to soak up the effortless way they serve their customers which I know from experience can take a lot of effort.

Have been here a few times and came back for a birthday meal with my fiancée. Atmosphere as always was great and the food and drink was perfect. The service, though, was outstanding. The girls could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Unfortunately after paying the meal we found we had absolutely no money for a tip. We snuck out feeling really guilty but I went back next day and left a tip - the service was that good. We'll be back!

We all had the Sunday Roasts, one had chicken, two had beef and one had pork, we all agreed they were the best Sunday roasts by far. It's just a shame we live so far away otherwise we would be back much more frequently. We had a desert of sticky toffee pudding and ice cream, our favourite desert here, I would highly recommend it, it is phenomenal, all the flavours compliment each other beautifully:) 10/10

We were a large party today of 15 with diverse menu choices, some where challenging for the staff, the second young girl that served us coped marvellously, offered suggestions and contributed to us all having a lovely evening. Thank you:)

Your roasts are the best we've ever tasted! Every time we come down we make sure we get to enjoy one. Excellent value for money, we had two courses for £18, the sticky toffee pudding is just amazing, my favourite pudding. Service is 10/10 everyone really is so friendly. Thank you.

we found this bistro/hotel about 18 months ago. it has a friendly atmosphere and service is good. the food excellent. Rob is wheelchair bound but no effort is spared to ensure his access and seating are good. we have taken both local and London friends to eat here and were impressed. Our friends stayed here for part of their honeymoon.
