MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Glynn Purnell really is ‘Mr Birmingham’: a larger-than-life character who is a proud ambassador for a city that he has helped put on the culinary map. A friendly young team assist him at Purnell’s; after a drink in the comfy lounge, they will lead you past the wine display and through the oak door into the spacious, vibrantly decorated dining room.

Menus range from an à la carte to a 10 course tasting option and include some of Glynn’s signature dishes from the ‘Great British Menu’. The sophisticated cooking ranges from British to Scandic in style and uses a mix of classic and modern techniques. Flavours and textures marry perfectly and he shows his personality through some of his more playful dishes. Rather than a chef’s table, he has the ‘Living Room’, where he offers a selection of small plates entitled ‘Brummie Tapas’.
