This is our fourth visit to Purnells and it just keeps getting better each time! We were celebrating our 5th anniversary and it could not have gone any better. Service is excellent throughout and every member of staff we came into contact with was efficient and professional yet relaxed enough to have a proper chat with as well. Special mention... More

Came here on a Tuesday evening for my girlfriends birthday and was absolutely blown away. We went for the Reminisce Tasting Menu which wine pairings and the whole thing was spectacular. Every dish (and wine) was amazing however a special mention is needed for the monkfish masala and the Burnt English custard egg surprise which were both incredible. The service,... More

This was our second time dining at Purnell's. It is quite possibly the best restaurant we have been to so far (we have dined at quite a few Michelin restaurants over the years). The staff are always friending and welcoming, the atmosphere is not pretentious, service excellent, food is simply amazing. We were seated for 7pm and opted for the... More

I booked Purnells as a surprise for my husband's birthday. It was recommended to me as something of an experience. It certainly was!! From the outside, Purnells doesn't look particularly inviting, however once you are through the door, this is where the magic happens. We were seated at our table and a menu was brought over to us shortly afterwards.... More
