About Purnell's Bistro
We are a relaxed Bistro in the heart of Birmingham's financial district owned by Michelin starred chef Glynn Purnell.
Absolutely fantastic, it always is, I have never had a poor experience coming here and I intend to continue!
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Bistro and will not hesitate to dine there again at some time in the future. The staff that looked after us were very professional and friendly. There is a small "however", I understand that there was a fixed price menu. My wife did mention it as we were travelling to Birmingham but did not think to ask for it. I did notice that diners at the next table to us did ask for it. I do think that it would be more open if the fixed price menu was more freely available, e.g. put a copy on each table, as making people ask for it seems as though the staff would prefer customers not to know about it. Is it the case that they get better commissions when people order from the main menu. Gives the impression that there may be a lack of transparency and honesty. I would have been able to give 5/5 for service and value had the fixed price menu been readily available.
Lovely evening food and drink
We had the 3 course from the lunch time menu. Good portion sizes and food presentation and taste excellent. Will return.
An excellent meal. The staff were friendly and very professional and were knowledgeable about the menu especially as two members of our party had food intolerances. Exceptional service. Thank you so much for a lovely evening.
excellent all round, will be back
My wife is very nervous about going to restraunts and your staff were excellent making my wife feel at ease and finding the whole experience fantastic. Thank you for making this such a memorable meal.
Excellent place for lunch, broke up the shopping for my husband!
Food and service was superb. Would highly recommend Purnell’s to friends and family
The pudding was very special! Your staff are great. Thankyou
Fabulous food in a great establishment. Very relaxed. Would definitely recommend.
Our favourite eating place. I recommend Purnells Bistro and Gingers to all my friends and to anyone who is looking for good food, atmosphere and friendly staff in Birmingham. It’s a must to visit.
A fantastic dining experience, as ever. Service was second to none.
Food is superb. Staff really let the place down. We had to ask twice for our drinks. We then had to ask to order dessert and twice for the bill. Seems to be a lot of staff walking around doing nothing.
We really couldn’t fault our food or service. Everything was spot on and all courses were delicious.
We enjoyed our meals but didn’t think it was anything special. Not sure that we would return.
Food was decent but not amazing. Veggie main was lovely but very small. Fillet steak wasn't as good as it should be. We had 7 different serving staff over the evening! Would have been nice to have just one or two. We still had a fun evening though.
Wonderful meal will definitely go again
Staff were very attentive and friendly. Atmosphere was calm and relaxed. Food was incredible, the wild mushroom tart was truly incredibly- highly recommend! I really cannot fault it.
Food & service were perfect could not fault Cocktails were also amazing
Service was fab, lovely young polite staff. Loved the mushroom tart to start- main courses a little limited. Sweets with dessert a lovely touch.
great food very good service, all in all great night
Fabulous as always. Cant wait until our next visit at the end of July.
Quality of food was excellent! We had a couple of cocktails before eating and found them to be poor, compared to some other bars in Brum they really werent special. Overall we had a pleasant evening.
Fabulous food and great service
