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 booked for my partners 50th birthday. As soon as we arrived staff were extremely attentive and we were made to feel very welcome. The sommelier in particular was very knowledgeable and pleasant. And the food - wow what a wonderful experience! My favourite was the lemon and blueberry dessert and my partner loved the scallop course.
    A truly fantastic evening, thank you!

    Your restaurant was recommended to myself and my friend.My friend lives in London and I live in Cheshire, we were meeting half way in Birmingham for lunch.
    We were looking for a restaurant with exceptional food where we could sit and chat for a few hours and walking distance from the station, your restaurant fitted
    our requirements perfectly and didn't disappoint.

    Another outstanding meal at this amazing restaurant. Service is great with a knowledgeable, thoughtful and friendly front of house staff. The food is excellent. We had the 5 course summer lunch menu and were amazed at the beauty of each dish, the fantastic aromas and the wonderful tastes. An extremely well balanced and cleverly put together set of dishes and a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

    Each of our 5 courses at lunch time were very special and unique.
    Finding it hard to choose a favourite.
    The veal tartare with the tomato was absolutely stunning.
    Not a massive fan of chocolate we were blown away with the chocolate and cherry dessert.
    What we also found pleasing was that the chef owner was actually there in the kitchen.

    Purnell's came to us via a friends recommendation. From start to finish the staff made us feel comfortable and at ease. The whole experience was enjoyable, but the food was just incredible! The taster menu offered such a wide varitey of tastes and experiences that will leave us remembering the day wih a smile and looking forward to the next time.
