    I had heard a lot of positive opinions in regards to this specific restaurant, from both friends and family. I decided it was finally time to give it go. I however was left feeling rather disappointed and underwhelmed by the food in which we were served. There was nothing wrong with the food, it wasn't burnt nor undercooked, it was purely the fact, given the prices, it wasn't worth it. I have had better service and food, for half the price at an unknown restaurant chain. The desert however was delicious and pushed this review up to 3 stars.

    We had the purnells journey menu bought through travel zoo for my boyfriends birthday. We've eaten at a few Michelin starred restaurants previously so were excited to try purnells. The food was such a disappointment though, none of the courses had the wow factor and the smoked haddock course was so over powering my boyfriend couldn't eat his and mine made me feel so sick as it was paired with cream, it was disgusting. The dessert was the best course. All in all not worth the money. The ambience wasn't great either, we couldn't wait to leave.

    Super atmosphere, lovely wines - a great choice and superb food. Limited choice for lunch - but that didn't matter. Not cheap of course - but i really felt it was value for money.

    What a fabulous way to spend a Saturday lunchtime. Booked by my son as a special treat for my 60th birthday and the two of us went today. We both chose the 6 course winter tasting menu and we couldn’t have been better served. Exquisite deliciousness came with each course, served with expert service and an explanation of each course. Highlights for me were every course however, the Cornish Crab, and the fillet of beef with the famous dessert of burnt egg, were outstanding. Even the bread and butter I would have happily eaten every day for the rest of my life. Glynn you are a culinary genius and I for one applaud your imagination and expertise- thank you and your staff for a wonderful birthday lunch, one I will never forget.

    We took the tasty menu on Friday night, the sommelier Adrien was very helpful and very kind, his advice were very helpful and the bottle of red wine he advised us was very good. I recommend this place and will come back as soon as possible :)

    Third visit and yet again did not disappoint. The last day before they got the whole Christmas off! Wow, just wow! No lack of enthusiasm here knowing it was their last day and we just love Sonal, sad he’s going. Food was as expected, superb. My favourite restaurant ever. Fact!

    I d wanted to eat at Purnells for a while. I was not disappointed! From the second we walked in, the staff we’re exemplary, friendly, informative and very welcoming! We had a seat where we could see into the kitchen and see the man himself at work! We opted for the 9 course winter menu and it blew my mind......the cheese and pineapple was soooo amazingly tasty, as well as playing with my head , I wanted to lick the dish, or at least run my finger around the bowl🤩. Genius!!!! Every course was a sensory triumph and I loved it ..... my partners favourite dish was the beef..... although it’s fair to say everything was fan bloomin tastic. The meal ended with mr Purnells serving our last course, it made my evening!! All I can say is go and try Mr Purnells food. It’s clever, technically amazing and totally delicious........ The restaurant was full, the atmosphere friendly and fun and Mr Purnell a genius in the kitchen..... What an experience!

    We booked Purnells whilst visiting Birmingham for the first time. As a last minute booking the only option available to us was the Brummy Tapas menu on a big table next to the bar. It was a very relaxed environment, which we enjoyed. The welcome was warm and the service from all the staff throughout the evening was fantastic. The tapas was a 5 course tasting menu (with some extras) served in a tapas style. We had the wine flight to accompany and some of the wines were outstanding, all were very enjoyable. There was an interesting range of wines and some bold choices, the sommelier is obviously very confident in his abilities and rightly so. They were delicious and fit the menu beautifully. Now the food. All i can say is WOW. To be honest we were blown away. We have eaten in many award winning restaurants but Glyn and the team have this spot on. The food is prepared and presented with love and care and respect for the ingredients and the result is stunning. Without being dramatic, the dessert brought tears to my eyes; it was like a warm hug at the end of a difficult week, comforting and evoking memories of childhood security. Just so clever and utterly delicious. There wasn't anything we didn't enjoy. All the accolades that Purnells has won are justified and i would 100% recommend.

    Birthday Treat from colleagues and to be honest I’ve been looking for an excuse to visit. The food and service is literally lunar as it is so far out of this world Had the five course lunch and we were treated like kings Each dish was well crafted and displayed, flavour matching was first rate The dish I was least looking forward to was belly pork, have had it at other restaurants and hated it, however, this was a pearler, three days in the making we were told, the fat was rendered perfectly and the taste was amazing We have been planning who to take on our next booking Amazing and thank you Purnell”s

    We had the 7 course taster menu, which was brave of my wife, as she doesn't like fish, it was delicious. I was disappointed not to be served the monkfish ( I love monkfish), but the cod that replaced it was really, really beautifully cooked - to perfection! I'm not convinced by the cornflakes, haddock and eggs, a tad pretentious and faffy - but it was tasty too. The setting is beautiful, right down to the bird song in the passage way. The staff were delightful, friendly, polite and attentive.

    Visited Purnell's on a Saturday night for dinner to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Booking process was easy and didn't require a ludicrous lead time as many do. Had a drink in the bar area on arrival, kir royale and a classic champagne cocktail both good, tasty olives too. Both of us opted for the seasonal tasting menu, and both had the wine flight. All dishes were well cooked, and tasted great, a couple of standouts, and a couple of misses though (which is of course entirely subjective): The beef carpaccio was phenomenal - the absolute star on the menu. The "pineapple and cheese" was brilliantly playful and full of nostalgia, very enjoyable. The ruby glazed beetroot was a little disappointing not entirely sure why, just felt a little flat. Wine's were all great, hard to be bad when it includes a glass of Krug though, the Amarone was also brilliant. A red desert wine was also unusual but worked brilliantly. Kudos to Jarek who did a wonderful job all night, and was polite and personable despite being extremely busy; the rest of the staff were not as on their A game, nothing complaint worthy but a couple of details such as water running out. Have not eaten at a 1* restaurant, but have eaten at a number of 3* venues in the UK and abroad - I would happily take Purnell's over Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, every time. Doesn't quite stand up to the Waterside Inn or Dorchester, not quite indulgent/luxurious enough in my view, but it's still a great place to eat. All told, the bill came to approx. £510 for the two of us. 2 x seasonal tasting menu 2 x wine flight 2 x champagne/cocktail 2 x bottle of still water + I presume 12.5% service charge. A pricey night, but I doubt you'll find much better anywhere in the Midlands.

    It's no surprise Purnell's still holds its Michelin star. We visited Friday night in January and it was one of the best culinary experiences I have ever had. We had the 'Purnells journey' menu and from start to finish it was a brilliant experience. I can't recommend here highly enough. The service, food, drinks, everything is fantastic. Give it a try!

    Loved the whole experience. We were in restaurant for nearly 3 1/2hrs. Time however flew by as we had the 9 x course taster menu. My son doesn't est red meat so staff had no issue in offering a veggie alternative, which was fab We had from beetroot, crab, turbot, venison, which were all absolutely gorgeous I am not into chocolate so my children helped me out with the puddings, that all looked divine. Even as a birthday treat they gave me a treat st the end of apple sorbet that was right up my street. Staff were fantastic especially our waitress and a wine expert/sommelier that was lovely. Would definitely come back for a special occasion as it is an expensive treat. Thankyou to the staff who were all lovely. Very relaxed restaurant in deed.

    We went for the brummie tapas meal as a family today and were really well looked after. The staff were all excellent and the service very efficient. Each course was beautifully presented, the whole theatre of the meal was lovely, all very visual. Each course was lovely, all very creative. We were in in a private room which suited us well.

    We visited as a couple , the first time for us in a Michelin star restaurant; I had requested seating in a quiet area of the restaurant , which was great because it overlooked the kitchen. Professional and friendly service throughout. We were seated to the lounge area and had our first drinks, with olives . We opted for the purnells journey . We didnt opt for the wine tasting but the couple next to us did and it did extend the whole experience. The food for the purnells journey was simply delightful and delicious . The skill and taste that had gone into these dishes was beyond our expectations. The waitresses were very knowledgeable about each dish and were happy to explain the basic process that the chefs used. We were not rushed at all - we arrived at 12pm and didnt leave until around 2pm , we really enjoyed the experience. My only critique was that the duck breast was slightly overcooked for me - I should've told the waitress, but it tasted so delicious I was equally happy with it . All in all a lovely experience. We had 2x purnells journeys, 1 glass of beer and 3 glasses of wine , costing £210. The wine tasting would have been an extra £80 per person (I think ). Worth every penny! We will definitely return but only for another special occasion!

    Pretty good. Visited this place with my Girlfriend and wasn't disappointed. Our main reason to visit this restaurant was the Burnt English Custard Egg Surprise, and oh god it was lovely better than expected. Overall a great night out!

    Friendly welcome. Dining area is L shaped with comfortable seating and a nice layout. The food was fun and was supported by some interesting props in its presentation. Normally I prefer savoury dishes but the egg custard dish was really nice. Service was efficient and friendly. For me the wine list was good but lacking in wines of good value and vintages. Overall a very nice evening.

    Visited 18th December 2019 had A La Carte Menu, Haddock and Eggs, Lamb,Burnt English Egg Surprise also the famous Mr P's bread and butter Sonal was excellent with his choice of wines for each course, staff and service as always the best and the fact that Mr P was in the kitchen as well is icing on what was a wonderful meal. I have been quite a few times to Purnell's with friends and also with my husband I have never been let down it is truly a wonderful experience and the food was beyond delicious. Looking forward to visiting again.
