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.

    It was all amazing could not fault anything

    We had the fixed price 3 course dinner....well it’s not three courses it was much much more than that,in a very good way.
    So price wise it was a very good meal for the price... a bit of theatre and plenty of surprises.
    Most importantly though the food was absolutely delicious...
    We eat for pleasure and this was up there... the curry monkfish was top 3 main courses ever for my wife and the mango dessert was the crunchiest pudding I have ever eaten ...up there in the top 5 ever for me,so scoring two top five dishes in one meal is a win.
    The rhubarb dessert had elements of flavour so delicious it was moving...
    We will return ...
    Well done Glynn and co ...a great culinary experience and good value too.

    We had a 4 course meal, all I can say wow! Amazing, to top it off it’s my wife’s 50th birthday year, had a couple of drinks, sat down, in between two courses in pops Glynn after the waiter gives the princess two books signed by the man himself!
    He only crouches down to have a chat, my wifes life is complete!
    Seriously, hats off Glynn, I’d recommend your restaurant to anyone, your staff were on it.
    Life’s for living,
