I recently had my 30th birthday here and I could not be happier. Everyone raved about the food and it just kept coming! The cocktails were amazing and the bar staff were so friendly. We had the best time and were so well looked after. We'll definitely be back!! What a beautiful bar.

For anyone wanting to have functions here please reconsider! Service was exceptionally bad. Had only 1 waitress on for 130 ppl and guests left hungry. Although the food was tasty definetely not enough for what you pay for.

Had Sunday lunch. A pasta dish. Really tasted good but for $26 it was way too small a main dish. Guys the resources book ended 2 years ago, there's a lot more value out there in other restaurants. The service was great, your staff are nice and accommodating. We won't be back.

We decided to try out the 'Purl Bar' last night as we had tickets to a show at the Regal Theatre and we wanted somewhere close to eat. I made the booking online and the process was very quick & easy. A reminder email came the day before confirming our booking. From the moment we arrived at the Purl Bar,... More

My partner and I were looking for somewhere for lunch. The first place we tried was closed and we found Purl by accident. It was sensational. The small bites menu offer a great variety and tasted great, especially the calamari which was complimented by a great salad. The Assiette of Sweets was a beautiful combination of the desserts and an... More

I booked a table prior to attending "Burn The Floor" at The Regal Theatre, which is a very short walk away. There only appeared to be two members of staff on duty but they were efficient, helpful & friendly. Unfortunately, my first meal preference was not available & the cheese on my pizza was also not available, but substituted with... More
