Urban Grounds has recently had a name change and is still situated in the same place across from the beautiful Laurel Bank park. We arrived early on Saturday and were treated by a very friendly staff member. We chose to sit inside with a view to the park. Service was very quick and the first coffee was delicious. We ordered...

The tasteful renovation has revamped this classic venue. We visited with family and two small children under the age of five for Saturday lunch. There was a large function in the private room. We ordered a bowl of chips for our children in arrival and didn't receive them until over an hour later once all of the adults meals had... More

We first ate at Urban Grounds with our immediate family. All five of us LOVED our meals (unheard of) and we struggled to pick a favourite among them. We have been several times since and have never had a bad meal. We regularly take our guests here for lunch when they are visiting, and everyone has been suitably impressed.

Friendly staff, service was great. Good variety available. All day breakfast, specials and a fairly extensive menu to suit most.

Poor service, we had table of 7, the best thing that came out was the kids bowl of chips!! All other meals were sub par. Sent one meal back because of raw potatoes, by the time it was remade everyone else at the table had finished eating and the potatoes were still raw on the second plate. Disappointing birthday lunch!!

We stopped here for an early lunch and were not disappointed. Food was delicious although menu limited. Staff very helpful. As restaurant started to fill it became a little noisy but would go again as our meal was lovely.

We went here to celebrate our anniversary. It was a few days before Christmas so the restaurant was very busy and rather noisy. Couldn't eat outside as it poured with rain. The meal was very good although the choice was limited and service friendly. I do wish hospitality staff would be trained in correct service though and bring all meals... More

We have eaten here many times, until recently always out on the decking. This past weekend we went for both Friday dinner and Sunday Breakfast. On both occasions the restaurant reeked! The smell of old-fashioned toilet cleaner blocks permeated throughout the entire restaurant. It was noticeable as soon as you step into the dining area and even sitting as far... More
