Had a lovely bowl of soup with a huge chunk of granary bread. Very tasty! My mum had the chicken and bacon pasta with a creamy sauce which looked wonderful and apparently tasted great. Reliable food at Urchins - all homemade and delicious - mum eats here frequently. The coffee is excellent too. Thank you!

Have been visiting urchins for quite sometime now but the food is awful when the usual man is the chef. There's a lady chef who cooks on his day off and we notice the food is awful. Today was no exception. My husband ordered a steak and it was rancid, he asked for it to be medium rare and it... More

It is with disappointment I am writing this review as for many years we have visited Urchins each time we are in Bude. The last time we visited we came out smelling of cooking but put this down to a one off, however, after visiting this week it appears it isn't and that the norm is to walk out with... More

stopped by for breakfast and was not disappointed. Everything was cooked just right, coffee was excellent, service sharp and friendly-couldn't fault anything. Will be back again!

Had not seen this restaurant before and very pleased to have found it. We had lunch there and the food was very good. It was well present with good portions. Will definitely return.

I absolutely love Urchins especially their breakfasts . Everything is outstanding and I highly recommend . I take my little sister in here sometimes as well and she usually has cream tea with a special Hot chocolate! She loves it .

Stopped here for lunch purely by chance. We shared a delicious home made soup and a savoury cream tea. The cheese scones, soft cheese and chutney were brilliant. The rest of the menu looked pretty good as well, would definitely go back.

We had both lunch & breakfast here (not on the same day!). Both times the food was really good. I would certainly agree with a previous review that the café could do with some extractor fans... That is my only criticism. Staff are welcoming and attentive, the food is fresh and plentiful. Certainly worth a visit whilst in Bude.
