We had a fabulous afternoon celebrating my sons 40th birthday. The food was, as always, superb. The staff were very polite, available yet respectful. They treated my two grandchildren with kindness and showed interest in their enjoyment as well as the adults. I have been to Purnelll's Bistro on many occasions nd have never been disappointed. Great food, lovely setting and polite and professional staff. I will certainly book again as soon as we are able to. Thank you

Another wonderful Sunday lunch at Purnell’s Bistro, lovely atmosphere and great food, such a shame that again we are going into a lockdown and restaurant will need to close 😢 will definitely be returning when we can .

Service excellent as ever. Ambiance was not great but possibly due to Covid. Food was ok but I was disappointed with the quality and did not feel it was good value.

Absolutely amazing from the first minute to the last. Service was second to none. Being a big guy I genuinely first thought was the portions wasn’t big enough for me how wrong could I have been. Mr Purnell you have one amazing team working with you. My very first visit here definitely won’t be my last. You have found a new customer here. I wish you all the success you all deserve

The food, drink and service was outstanding the young man who waited our table was perfect in manners and knowledge, I chose this restaurant for a special meal for myself and my wife to celebrate her 40th birthday and it did not disappoint. If I had any constructive criticism to give it would be the fact that I struggled to read the menu in the low level lighting although admittedly my wife slipped it in her purse and we bought it home as a reminder of the evening. All in I think we would both happily return to celebrate her 41st birthday.

Tge food was great..full of flavour. Menu a little limited perhaps even for a bistro. Service was great. Not very busy...no doubt the result of covid....so a bit lacking in atmosphere. Had a good evening though.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you. You made a special effort for my little boy who has a dairy allergy and never once made it feel like we were a pain. You also made it really special for my mums birthday. Fantastic lunch. Couldn’t fault anything. Thank you so much
