An exceptional dining experience, made even more memorable by being able to chat to Glynn himself who made everybody feel more than welcome and totally secure. The whole team at Purnell's are amazing, warm friendly and exceptionally knowledgeable. The food is 10 out of 10 couldn't have asked for a better evening out

As always our visit to purnells was superb. The staff are friendly and attentive and were happy to adapt the menu according to our preferences and dietary choices. The new maitre d- Yanic was great and made us so welcome. Once again the food was excellent and we would be hard pressed to choose a favourite dish. Thanks to all at purnells.

Lovely small restaurant with interesting menu options. Experience slightly spoilt by uncomfortable chairs and table bases that were in the way of feet. Staff very attentive and friendly and kindly got me a different chair on request. Overall nice experience for a treat.

Service and quality was great. From the moment we entered the restaurant we were welcomed and made to feel very much as though we were the most important people to them. We had the 9 course tasting menus which was amazing. The quality of the food were as good as we have had in establishments similar. We would recommend to others and the stand out dish was the haddock and eggs!!!

Outstanding food! Really really great experience and loved all the food. Very difficult to pick favourite but the monkfish and the haddock and egg are right up there. What made it for us were the staff. Made to feel so welcome and service was fantastic.
