Urban Reef

Urban Ree's logo on the front of the restaurant in Bournemouth


Committed to fresh, local and seasonal produce, to ethics and sustainability, to smiling, having fun and working really hard to achieve something amazing. Please come and pay us a visit.

We opened in May 2009, and have been working every day to create a venue we really want you to fall in love with. There are many local restaurants so we never rest on our laurels and strive to continually impress you. We’re open all year but times and days change with the seasons, so do take a look at our website for the latest.

What can you expect to see?

The Urban Reef offers a 90 seater sun deck right on the promenade, a ground floor café, bar and local produce deli and a 100 seater restaurant on the first floor with a balcony that has amazing views over Boscombe bay and the Purbecks and a mezzanine. On the ground floor you can watch our team of chefs prepare your dishes in our open plan kitchen. Our bar team will prepare you some amazing locally roasted coffee, a simple freshly squeezed orange juice, or your favourite special cocktail. You choose…

Funky tunes, surrounded by fresh produce and a view to die for. We know you’re going to love it.

The Urban Guild family

The Wood Oven next door delivers authentic, Napoli-style pizzas cooked to perfection and available to take away on the Beach and also available in the evenings in ‘the Cube’ at Urban Reef. 

Our older brother, The Urban Beach hotel, is located just up the hill (about a five minute walk away), so if you’re looking for a place to stay just ask.
