About Purnell's Bistro
We are a relaxed Bistro in the heart of Birmingham's financial district owned by Michelin starred chef Glynn Purnell.
Excellent service and delicious food. Will certainly be back and have already recommended you to friends.
Lovely food great atmosphere
Exceeded our expectations.
My daughter and I had a wonderful lunch starting with cocktails and finishing with coffee We could not fault anything We had eaten at Purnells quite a few times we travel from Shropshire and it's well worth the journey Thanks to all the staff Val Davies
My family and I like the ambience, food, friendly staff and great value for money. I recommend Purnells Bistro to all my friends.
great quality and value for money restaurant.
Very pleasant venue with an good choice of dishes on the à la carte menu. It was a relief to see more than one veggie main course option for my guest. Sensible portions for the average appetite. Reasonable pricing but the price of wine could push the average cost up. Pity they don't offer a less expensive House wine. (though this applies to most city centre restaurants)
Not much choice for vegetarians and portion size smaller compared to meat dishes. My husband did enjoy his meat dishes and thought they were good value for money.
The service was great, food fantastic restaurant was a little chilly though. There were a couple of small heaters but they didn’t really do much.
Service was surprisingly slow and we had to ask for a lot of things such as the dessert menus, ice/lemon with sparking water. On reflection I'm not sure 10% service charge paid was not reflective of what we received (which was pretty poor level of service). A shame as we enjoyed the food.
well cooked and presented food.
Great food in lovely surroundings,thoroughly enjoyed by all our party
Quite simply the best Fish and Chips I have ever eaten also the best tartar sauce ever
Delicious food with some unique flavour profiles and great service.
Excellent meal and the service was superb... we will definitely be back
Yet again another fabulous evening at Purnells. The staff are always very friendly and their service efficient without being rushed. The food is exquisite. If there is a slow cooked beef option on the menu, we always opt for this as it’s out of this world! We recommend to everyone and look forward to returning at the end of March!
Very nice sunday lunch. Our 1st time. Not the most welcoming in way of cheeriness from the bar but very nice service from waiters once we had sat down.Cocktails very good and sunday lunch was perfect along with first course. Would recommend. 👍
The food was great. The interior décor needs improvement
An excellent meal with great service.
Excellent meal and service. Used a groupon on this occasion and food was as good as other time’s we’ve been. Will be returning again and again 😃
Loved the atmosphere, it was friendly and welcoming yet sophisticated too. Enjoyed some delicious cocktails at the bar first. The food was great, couldn’t fault any of it! Service was timely and professional. Would definitely return!
Would highly recommend to anyone. Had a lovely meal in very nice surroundings and served by great staff.
Lovely food & atmosphere. Service excellent.
Having had a wonderful experience at Purnells it was only right we checked out its little brother, Purnells Bistro. And what an inspired decision, a great atmosphere, excellent food and very friendly, efficient service. Well worth a visit , relaxed, casual fine dining at its best.
Great food and atmosphere. Nice informal evening. Food Value for money, cocktails a bit pricey. Would recommend and will go back
