My fella and I booked a table online for Valentine’s Day 2020 and we had no idea what was install. On arrival the staff were so welcoming and very helpful, atmosphere was lovely and chilled. We had a glass of sparkling with a lovely flower presented in the drink. Then we had the most awesome menu of food with an explosion of flavours in every mouthful and presentation was beautiful too, for such a good price! We were absolutely over the moon with our spontaneous visit to Urban Beach and would most definitely recommend anyone to go and check it out!

We love your venue however we felt that the food did not live up to its description on the menu in terms of taste. Presentation wise the food was very appealing. I had the root vegetable dish and the broth was bland and the root vegetable lovely but no discernible flavours. Great effort but sadly not lived up to in the final result.

Nice relaxed atmosphere and live music/DJ which is a bonus. Looked after well by friendly staff. Will definitely come back as I live around the corner and having this near is great.

Excellent Xmas do at Urban Beach for 3rd year running! We love the food and ambience and sitting around the fire in the snug afterwards works really well for us. The only slight negative was the lack of choice of 2 for 1 cocktails this year and that they were no longer available on a Friday. However we all drank lots of wine instead and held a very lively quiz in the snug! Thank you again all at Urban Beach.

Thank you for our great Christmas Day lunch. Our family of 8 really enjoyed ourselves. The staff were all very attentive and were only to pleased to supply whatever we wanted. All the family expressed how good it was. Thank you. Special thanks for not only finding the lost Lego man, but phoning me to let me know too.

There were six of us and there was a large table of about 12 other people and you would not have known it, we were treated exactly the same as if it was a quiet night.Great job by one and All.

We were underwhelmed by the food last night, namely the vegan squash and beet pie. A little disappointed too that there were no vegan wine options available. A small oversight if you are providing vegan foods. The food also didnt all arrive promptly , the carnivores sat for some time waiting for the vegan mains to arrive. That said the staff were very warm an friendly. We really want to support our small local businesses as we are one ourselves. All of our feedback is done with the best intention, to help improve your service. Kind regards Hannah

First time many of us (large group) had been there! It’s a really beautiful place lots of cosy seating areas. Although I didn’t eat people that did enjoyed the food. The children thoroughly enjoyed the massive marshmallows they roasted on the fire, they will have fond memories of that for a long time! We did have to move to the covered outside space to hear each other, it was warm and cosy with the heating, blankets, heated seats and fire! Some of the seats were a bit wet, think from the constant rain we’ve been having!! The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Thanks very much and we will be back!

We are long standing clients, and in our experience, the level of service does not necessarily improve and sometimes it actually decreases. However the whole Urban Hug's clan proves consistency. We have a warm welcome everywhere we go. We go to Urban Garden and we can enjoy a cocktail and a hug from Gee, we go to the Reef to enjoy the beach view and the wonderful staff, and we go to the Urban Beach for a rather knowledgable chap who personally spent time to explain the history behind the new french wine we were tasting. We are honestly amazed and when we take a sit in one of your venues, there is nowhere else we rather be. Please can you give my compliments and also 2 hugs each to all of you who make our experience with you the most enjoyable in the area. lots of love Tiara

This is always our first choice place to dine when visiting Bournemouth. It was our daughters graduation from Bournemouth university yesterday and so it was definitely the place to book for a gorgeous meal x Although we don’t live in the area we visit a lot and have a hug club card. We are saving the points for a nights stay next July to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary x Great place, great food, lovely welcome.

I chose the Urban Beach as the venue for a Faculty dinner at the end of an intense day of training for Doctors. I wanted a relaxed, fun atmosphere with good food and refreshments. The service had to be good. I am pleased to say that the team at Urban Beach delivered on every count and everyone who attended the dinner took particular effort to tell me how much they enjoyed the evening.
