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.

With the living room restaurant space dedicated to sociable and relaxed fine dining, the Purnell’s menu offers a variety of inventive ‘Brummie tapas’ dishes, ideal for sharing. 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.

Offering informal fine dining and Michelin-starred cuisine, Purnell’s in Birmingham sits 6 minutes’ walk from Snow Hill train station. Diners are required to be of smart casual attire.

  • ((((( 12 December 2018 by Tony from Birmingham

    Yet again another great evening at Purnells, not only was the food divine but from the moment you step through the door the service and the atmosphere is first class. Encountered a couple of new dishes this time which added to the experience, some of the courses are pure theatre !! Tantalising our taste buds with every bite. The advice on the food and drink given by the staff along with the service is outstanding and during the time in the restaurant your made to feel very special . The only negative we could find is when you have to go home ....

    I have been to Purnell’s a few times and it has never let me down. The staff are wonderful, knowledgable and so helpful, nothing is too much for them and they make you feel at ease.
    The food is to die for, always something different but then the old favourites too. I can not recommend the place high enough.

    Innovative and different, only our second time at this great restaurant and we were not disappointed. Some friends of ours fly into Birmingham from Jersey around this time every year, and we try and find a new dining experience for them to sample. We had the "Brummie Tapas" and we knew from the very first course of "Gifts from the kitchen" that we were in for a dining experience. My wife and i remembered how good the bread and butter was on our last visit, who would have thought that something so simple could be so absolutely delicious! The other 5 courses were equally good, difficult to pick a highlight but the Slow cooked (32 hours!) pork belly and Mint choccy chip were my particular standouts. This restaurant is a must if you enjoy being entertained and fed at the same time. The Michelin Star is well deserved!
