The Urban Reef is an informal bar, café, deli and restaurant located at the newly transformed Overstrand on Boscombe promenade. This unique location offers panoramic views over the stunning Bournemouth Bay and to the Purbecks and beyond.

The team behind the Urban Beach Hotel are hugely excited to have had the opportunity to design, build and operate the Urban Reef and have injected the same level of detail, passion and commitment that has already turned the Urban Beach into a respected award winning local business.

Committed to fresh, local & seasonal produce, committed to ethics and sustainability, committed to smiling, having fun and working really really hard to achieve something amazing. Please come and pay us a visit. We opened in May 2009, and have been working frantically every day to create a venue we really want you to fall in love with. There are many many local restaurants so we never rest on our laurels and strive to continually impress you. We're open seven days per week and you can check our opening times here. You can even book your table right now online here with just a couple of clicks or by calling our automated table reservations gizmo on 01202 060 652. Clever!

The Urban Reef offers a 90 seater sun deck (ok we are optimistic on the 'sun' front) right on the promenade, a ground floor café, bar and local produce deli and a 100 seater restaurant with balcony on the first floor and a mezzanine level.

We can even keep you cosy in the winter with our open log burning fire, an oak clad wall holding 60 candles, a beautiful 50's inspired interior and designer furniture with a triple height glass frontage flooding the building with light. We really have got the ideal space for both summer and winter dining.

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 triple certified coffees, an orange juice, or a really special cocktail. You choose...

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