Situated in a Victorian redbrick building, Michelin-starred Purnell’s restaurant in Birmingham is a chic and contemporary dining space. Seamlessly fusing the heritage of its residence with modern accents in the dining room, the stylish restaurant space is flooded with natural light from the classically-Victorian arched windows.

Sample dishes include spiced potato and lime croquettes with duck egg mayonnaise, and neck of lamb with capers and basil emulsion.

A selection of tasting menus are also available at the West Midlands restaurant, offering dishes such as tail fillet of beef rolled in liquorice charcoal, and waffles with foie gras butter with crispy chicken skin. A classic 3 or 5-course lunch menu offers contemporary British cuisine, such as duck breast with apple and celeriac puree, and roasted plaice with confit tomato and pickled shallots.

    Excellent service and food.

    We really enjoyed the whole experience in the restaurant. The staff were attentive and very friendly and helpful. We chose the 5 course lunch menu and were not disappointed with any of it. The bread and butter was delicious and we enjoyed every course. Our favourites were the beetroot mousse , cod particularly the leek fondant and the spring berry desert . I loved the violet ice cream. The petit fours were great too. We really liked tree pictures . Thank you for a fabulous experience. We will definitely come again and try a tasting menu.
