A thoroughly wonderful dining experience. Service impeccable and food glorious- so tasty and well presented..
It was also a treat to see Mr Purnell in the kitchen as, so often, chefs simply “design “ the menu and then leave it to their juniors to cook. Thanks for a lovely evening.

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.

    We lived the atmosphere in the restaurant, it wasn’t too stuffy but has an air of class to it. We had the summer tasting menu which was fantastic. The staff were very knowledgeable about the foot and explained exactly what we were having. The dishes complemented each other perfectly with my favourite being the duck and smoked eel. I can not recommend the restaurant highly enough and having previously paying a visit to another well known Michelin star restaurant in London (which shall remain nameless), this was head and shoulders above. A true lot wonderful experience.

    We went to Purnell's in Birmingham and had the Brummie Tapas Menu in the Living Room. From the menu description it was hard to tell what to expect, but the whole experience was mind-blowing! Each course was an amazing culinary delight of outstanding quality and artistry! We have had tasting menus elsewhere but nothing could compare to this experience. It was slightly awkward at first, sitting at a table with complete strangers, but the ice was broken when a marriage proposal took place during the dessert of one of the other couples! The drinks were very expensive but I guess that is to be expected in a city centre venue. Following this experience we will definitely be returning to try the regular taster menu.

    Excellent service with friendly and approachable staff.
    We booked a table for a birthday celebration. Everything was absolutely perfect, from the dishes, the careful modifications made with regards to allergy data, to the little attentions throughout the meal.
    Do make sure to get a recipe book signed by the chef himself before you leave.

    From first to last bite, our meal at Purnell’s was perfection. We were finding for our wedding anniversary and had the Summer tasting menu and wine flight. Our sommelier was excellent and even re-filled our glasses and gave us a glass of the Grand Krug champagne as a treat. The food was divine and every course was a accompanied by a pause after the first mouthful as we marvelled at the flavours.

    It was a very special dinner for our anniversary. The food was delicious. My favourite dish was beef carpaccio and octopus, extraordinary. My partner liked the chocolate and cherry desert best. We were given table with view of the kitchen which I liked. The service was impeccable.
