Harden's survey result
TV-chef Glynn Purnell’s swish HQ in the business quarter was Birmingham’s most-mentioned restaurant in the survey this year and is often recommended as “Brum’s best” (with ratings on almost exactly level pegging with rivals Adam’s and Opheem). Criticism is most notable by its absence, with nothing but rapturous reviews for his “technically accomplished cuisine, with well-executed creative dishes” and “interested, attentive and well-paced service”.
“Stunning…”, “fantastic…”, “exceptional every time…” – folks continue to be “blown away by the innovative cuisine” produced by TV-chef Glynn Purnell’s luxurious 45-cover HQ, “in the smart city-centre business quarter”. There are an array of menus on offer, with just tasting options available Friday lunch and Friday & Saturday evenings.
“Stunning flavours, contrasting combinations and presentation… by the time you reach the dry ice, dried mint leaves and theatre of the final course, you’re a convert!” – TV-chef Glynn Purnell creates an experience that’s “special but not stuffy” at his “understatedly luxurious” (and “romantic”) city-centre HQ, providing “great menu options that deliver on their promise and friendly but unobtrusive staff” who show “attention to detail at its best”. The competition in this “much under-rated culinary city” is fierce nowadays, but for its fan club it’s “the top choice in town”.
“Psychedelic wallpaper” is part of the more flamboyant look, since a summer 2015 revamp of Glynn Purnell’s city-centre venture. Even those who say it’s “brilliant” can find it “expensive” (or gripe that it’s “recently been complacent”), but the overall picture is still of “tasting menus, with a succession of delicious and exciting dishes”, served “by a phalanx of polished and very friendly young Brummies”.
