Everything perfect from greeting to goodbye. Great food, friendly and personable service. Nothing to dislike at all.

Great food and lovely staff. The brummie tapas was super (notably the beef dish and tarte tatin) and the chef was accommodating to small changes - much appreciated! We will definitely be back

Really enjoyed a fantastic 8 courses taster meal, every course really enjoyable. Particularly enjoyed the egg yolk with Haddock, beautiful. Staff were very attentive and polite, will definitely visit again.

So from the beginning to the end of our experience at Purnell’s was one I will never forget. We were seated opposite the kitchen and could see through the windows to the kitchen, this gave theatre to the evening seeing everyone working from the pot wash up to Glynn himself. The service was second to none. Every course was described by the front of house team amazingly, so much description and love for the food. It was my partners birthday and she was given an extra course which just made the night. We will definitely be coming back again and again. The price was very reasonable for the standard of service you receive. I can definitely see why the restaurant has a Michelin Star. I can say with hand on heart this was the best restaurant and food experience I have ever had.

As always perfect service and wonderful food. Had the 4 course menu this time difficult to state a favourite all were superb, but the chowder was exceptional, the knife was not needed to eat the beef it was so well cooked it could be eaten with a spoon, the apple sorbet was so clean and fresh tasting these are a few of the highlights but everything was so good I could list every element of every dish. Covid has not affected the standards one little bit.

Wonderful dining experience. Food and wine absolute top quality. We were ever so slightly disappointed by the ambience however. Not particularly romantic as a setting.

Another amazing experience at Purnells yesterday! We felt very safe and comfortable considering the restricted times we find ourselves in - Purnells have 100% got everyone's safety as a priority. The best part for us was that the delicious food we tasted was as always 'top notch'. Haddock and Eggs and the brill were our favourites, followed very closely by the fabulous 10/10/10! Jarek and the rest of Team Purnell made us very welcome, thank you guys!
