Wow. Went went here for a birthday dinner after not being able to get a reservation elsewhere. We'd heard & read good reviews, so we were hoping for a good meal, but were a little nervous in case it didn't live up to it's good reputation. Well, what can we say?! Our experience was absolutely superb from beginning to end.... More

Courtesy of a 5-course tasting voucher, my nephew and I dined here last evening and were most impressed. Hidden away in a cosy basement in Stockbridge, it has some of the ambience and intimacy of somebody's front diningroom having, as it does, tables enough for a company of about 20 covers. Gregor, our host, warmly greeted us and showed us... More

Had a tasting menu here last year. Brilliant small intimate venue. Food was excellently presented , even in tasting format. Everything was tasty, well prepared and I'd recommend a visit to anyone, especially on the tasting menu deals available. A little gem.

My partner and I had dinner here and by and large we both enjoyed it. However, we both had lamb and while my lamb was cooked perfectly, my partners was completely overcooked. Not a cheap restaurant so really expecting better. Our deserts were delicious though. The restaurant is very intimate and a nice spot for a quiet dinner. Would I... More

Not my first time to Purslane and definitely not my last. Food was fantastic and the price is great. 7 courses everyone as nice as the last. Think the rabbit was my favourite.

We booked Purslane a few weeks ago for a celebratory meal and had a lovely time. We have been meaning to go for some time now and wish we had been sooner. The food was fantastic with one of the dishes (scallops with celeriac) making it on to my Most Memorable Meal List :-) Highly recommended, we will definitely be... More
