The Urchin Pub


The Urchin is one restaurant I’ve been curious about for a while because they seem to offer something different than your typical local pub fare.
Having heard from friends who live nearby, saying that it’s a great place to enjoy some time away from work or school.

I had the pleasure of visiting the pub, which was gorgeous. This seaside venue is beautiful in every way, with muted greys, a nautical interior design and interior lighting, and a lovely garden area in which to enjoy a quiet beer by the sea.

Their huge selection of craft beers are placed strategically where you can grab them off the bar for inspection before deciding which one will be your next favourite – but beware: these delicious brews won’t last long!

This charming pub in Hove is located on Belfast Street, 10 minutes away from the train station.

 It’s a great choice for family gatherings or socializing with friends!


The Urchin is a restaurant that caters to seafood lovers. They serve up prawns, lobsters and more with everything coming straight from their locally-named supplier partner – it’s guaranteed freshness every time!

The Urchin has something for everyone on their menu, including plant-only varieties. Though it’s not marketed as a vegetarian or vegan resto, they do have many options that make them an excellent place to visit if one of your party members’ is looking for the meatless fare!

On my first visit to this restaurant, I appreciated the simple yet delicious scallops. The butter and citrus complemented their delicate flavour while adding a satisfying touch of richness.

I also loved how the bread came alongside large wedges with either balsamic and oil or butter.

The paella I ate was beautiful, and the way they presented it made me feel like an honoured guest. It looked great under its foil sheet-the seafood lay on top of rice with a crispy edge that tasted delicious.
I love that they bring it to your table for some theatre and then reveal this colourful display of prawns, mussels and squid tips!

Beers and More!

The Urchin is a likeable pub with substance. Its beers are unique and the food menu reflects this same creativity, which makes it more than just another place to go for some drinks and appetizers.

To please the wine lover, Urchin has made sure to provide a long list of wines that pair well with their shellfish dishes.

I was drawn to this restaurant for its paella, but I can’t help being tempted by the other specials. There are langoustine ramen and prawns among others that are making my stomach growl just reading about them! This restaurant deserves a second visit from me…
