Mark Cribb
Owner, future gazer

10 years ago Fee and I first opened the doors to the Urban Beach Hotel. I now spend most of my time in the future looking for new exciting things to give some Urban Guild love to.

Chris Warwick
Head of Operations, connoisseur, dapper chap

I keep Mark’s FUTURE aspirations loosely in some sort of real world, I work in the NOW, zipping between venues, making sure every day we HUG 100s of people. Then I have a whisky.

Charlotte Taplin
Manager, tea drinker

I’ve been an Urban for a few years working as Assistant Manager at Urban Reef before making the journey up the hill to look after Urban Beach. Love a good cup of tea!

Kosta Petrov
Bar Manager

My job as bar manager means I get to meet all of you lovely people. We love making you cocktails that make you smile or recommending a spirit or two to try.

Tara Taylor
House Keeper

I have worked with Mark for 9 years, making sure that our twelve rooms are looking their best when you come and stay. I hope you like the little touches I have added over the years x

Francis Baumer
Head Chef

My passion for combining local ingredients with seasonal flavours means that I like to work with small niche suppliers to build my menus. As a result we can offer customers something different.

Matt Lawrence
Head of shouting

I came to Bournemouth to study marketing, met my wife Vicky at Uni and set up home here 20 years ago. I love my job, promoting the Urban venues and dressing up like a wally.

Jasper the dog
Hugable, wagging, friend

Meet Jasper, we think he’s the duck’s nuts. If you meet him at one of our establishments be sure to say hello. He’s also known for giving great hugs – well OK, great licks.

Josh Baumer
Bartender

Known to many as ‘Junior’. I live and breathe spirits.

Lee Hartley
Duty Manager

Hugger of pineapples, manager and mender of broken things.
