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.

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!

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.
