New Summer Menu at Urban Reef

We have been fans of Urban Reef restaurant since it opened although we seem to pop in for a cheeky lunch date when the kids are at school, rather than visit for an evening meal these days. Urban Reef describes itself as an ‘informal bar, deli, cafe and restaurant’ located next to the beach on Boscombe Promenade and we love it because it gives us the chance to go for a bracing walk along the beach with a special hot chocolate, coupled with Kay’s amazing cakes, treat in the winter, or a cooling tipple in the summer. Downstairs offers seating …

We loved it so much that if it were local to us we would certainly be buying season tickets. Folly Farm’s …

We got there in time for opening and Sebastian couldn’t wait to go inside. I decided to let him lead in and he was straight into the barn to see the animals and started the queue to cuddle a guinea pig. He loved stroking it until it wriggled and then he decided enough was …
