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.

    Had a lovely time at Purnells, 2nd time to have the Brummie tapas, and this was just as good an experience as the 1st. The staff there are fab, each one of them make you feel really comfortable and welcome, we had the wine pairing this time.. which was perfect!!. My favourite dishes were the pork and the mango desert, but really they were all totally beautiful.

    Superb meal - alongside the best that I have had at a Michelin restaurant. There was not a discordant note among the courses we had. We particularly enjoyed the Carpaccio but all the dishes wee of outstanding quality. The only slightly negative comment we would have is that we felt the lounge area was a bit stark and soulless

    An excellent evening. The staff made us welcome from the moment the door opened and they were attentive and polite throughout the evening. The food was superb and with helpful advice on the choice of wine we all had a wonderful night. We will be back!

    The restaurant has had a makeover since we last visited. From parts of the restaurant, you get a partial view of the kitchen, which I loved. The staff were very attentive, and well informed, able to answer any questions we asked about the food or wines. We opted for the '10 Years in the Making' menu which was a delightful experience, with a fantastic selection of wines to accompany the food. The staff even changed one of the wines for me when I commented that I wasn't fan of chardonnay. This isn't a cheap night out, but we were there to celebrate my husband's birthday, and as a rare treat, I think it was worth every penny.

    Excellent experience especially for two of our party who had food allergies which was wonderful for them to be able to eat all dishes placed before them without worry.The food was varied and exciting to try and beautifully presented. The sommelier presented some 'different wines' to those we normally drink which were all very well received particularly the final Japanese Sake
