Michelin starred chef, Glynn Purnell


Purnell’s offers chic, contemporary dining located in one of Birmingham city centre’s finest conservation areas, close to Colmore Row and St Phillips Cathedral. Established by Michelin starred chef, Glynn Purnell in July 2007, the 45 cover restaurant occupies a Victorian redbrick and terracotta corner building, with large windows on both sides providing plenty of natural light during the day. The restaurant has its own bar and lounge area, for diners only, where a pre-dinner cocktail or after dinner coffee or digestif can be enjoyed on comfortable sofas.

Commissioned by Michelin Starred Chef Purnell to recreate a unique dining experience for his guests, interior finishes were uplifted capturing Chef’s personality and ethos.

Diners will walk through an intimate wine storage passage with bespoke wine racks. Clusters of Birmingham-made ‘jam-jar’ lights are a reminder that Glynn takes childhood recollections of food and tasting experiences very seriously indeed! Emerging into the dining room, warm and vibrant colours on walls, the floor and on new bespoke banquette setting set the tone for a dramatic dining experience.
