The Urban Reef is a relaxed beachside bar, café and restaurant just a stone’s throw from the golden sands of Bournemouth. Popular with sun-lovers, this contemporary venue overlooks the historic pier at Boscombe. Its unique location offers panoramic views stretching from the Isle of Wight to the Purbeck Hills and beyond.
The food is as fresh as the decor and the varied menu proves popular with diners of all ages. Breakfast is a laid-back affair where you can gaze out across the seafront and tuck into dishes such as smoked kippers, pancakes, chocolate granola and traditional fry ups. Pair your meal with one of the fresh smoothies – perhaps choose the Green Reviver, a delicious blend of kale, banana, mango, apple juice and lemongrass. The main menu uses local produce in dishes inspired by worldwide cuisine. Notable ﬁsh dishes include dressed whole Lymington crab, lightly curried sustainable hake and yoghurt fritters, and soused mackerel accompanied by mussels, roasted beets, orange and rhubarb. Meat and vegetarian dishes are equally inventive. No matter what you choose, the energetic team will make sure your every need is met.
The Urban Reef is a proud part of the Urban Guild, a group of local venues that includes the award-winning Urban Beach Hotel and Jenkins & Sons restaurant.
