About Purnell's Bistro
We are a relaxed Bistro in the heart of Birmingham's financial district owned by Michelin starred chef Glynn Purnell.
Staff were friendly and attentive nothing was too much trouble . Food is amazing . When main arrived I didn’t know whether to frame it or eat it .... I ate it .but it looked and tasted amazing . Definitely will be making a return visit
Really enjoyed our visit this week. Great menu choice, we were given time to enjoy each course.
Lovely food, nice atmosphere, this is our second visit and we will definitely return.
Food was delicious although service was a little slow. It was a Sunday afternoon so it was quiet as would be expected. Overall very good and would highly recommend and will definitely be coming back
We were a bit disappointed actually. Myself and my husband had only been to the restaurant a month before the visit yesterday and there was quite a difference. We have always been given lovely bread before and a great choice of vegetables. However this time there was no bread and no green vegetables. We could see that other tables had green veg so we asked why we hadn’t been offered either bread or the missing veg and were told that bread was available but chargeable and that we had to request the green vegetables. There was no instruction on the menu to indicate this??? We had also reserved our table for 2:15 but were advised that the previous guests hadn’t finished yet and would we mind a delay-this wasn’t a problem but the right hand side of the restaurant was completely empty so we were puzzled at being told of the delay when half the restaurant was empty? We have been regular visitors to the bistro for Sunday lunch and never had a problem but it was sad yesterday as we had invited friends to dine with us as it was my husbands birthday, the food we had was delicious but a bit of a thumbs down 👎 ref the points raised.
Excellent service good food well prepared and presented. Would definitely come back again
Great food and drink! Service was spot on also!
We entertained some clients at Purnell's Bistro thoroughly enjoyed the evening, great food, great atmosphere and excellent service - highly recommend
Menu limited, had not changed for some considerable time, food average for cost
I marked atmosphere down as some of the other diners were quite raucous. Value for money was very good as we used a Groupon voucher. Service was very good and staff were very polite and helpful. Food quality was excellent as always.
First visit ! Given voucher as a gift . Fabulous scotch egg starter 😉🥰 fish and chips nice size meal for evening out Marlborough wine excellent 😊
Great food and reasonably priced
Good food, attentive staff in a relaxed atmosphere
Excellent food and drinks but service particularly front of house poor
Varied menu and food was delivered in a timely manner. All courses were delicious
We ordered some drinks that didn’t come and had to remind staff but other than that, very good service.
We added a review while we were dining as we were so impressed and some of our friends have now booked based on our recommendations. We will definitely be back.
We had a great first visit to the restaurant. Will definitely go again
Food was excellent, one of the best meals we've had. Service was first class too. We will definitely be back.
My first time visiting this Bistrot to celebrate a friends birthday. The food was absolutely delicious! Will definitely visit again and would recommend to others.
Attended for lunch with groupon voucher. Excellent meal and value.
Good food in a charming bistro.
Think the Groupon deal has taken away the restaurants exclusivity and attention to detail ..... the service was terrible ..... and therefore the 10% service charge was not deserved in my opinion .... not a great experience this time .....
Lovely venue, great food and friendly relaxed staff
