    Fourth time eating at Purnells - Glynn and team don't disappoint! With the Covid restrictions there wasn't the usual ambience (and had to rush coffee to meet the 10:00 pm close) but the service and the food were amazing.

    A superb lunch, and good value for money given the quality of the food. I especially enjoyed the tomato and frozen goats curd, and the pork belly. Excellent eclectic wines, and a relaxed atmosphere. Great staff, who were knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive.

    It was excellent. Waiting staff were attentive, knowledgeable and very welcoming. The tasting menu was incredible. Every dish was faultless and looked very appetising. I don’t have a favourite dish as they were all amazing. They catered for all allergies and no one missed out. Will definitely be back!

    I was treated to a meal for my birthday by my wife, the overall experience was fantastic, the staff were excellent and couldn't do enough for you and the food was second to none. A fabulous evening and we shall be returning very soon.

    The whole experience was fantastic. Every course we ate was wonderful. The service was great - attentive but not over the top. It was a relaxed dining experience.

    It's always a good sign when it's hard to pick your favourite course, but Purnells does pose that problem. The menu is well designed and balanced, and the cookery is first class, with the pinacle coming at the end - the dessert here is amazing!

    Booking online very easy, welcome was professional and friendly and restaurant had a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. We had the summer tasting menu which was delicious and served at just the right pace. Favourite dishes egg & cornflakes, mackerel, creme brûlée’s and mint chocolate mousse. The manager and waiting staff were excellent and very knowledgeable. Only thing i would change is to give the toilets a bit of an update and coat of paint.

    The most amazing night, food and wine ever. A truly amazing experience. Even got to meet the Chef, Glynn Purnell and have a photo and gift of his book for my birthday. Totally star struck and would highly recommend.
