Welcome to Purnell’s Bistro & Ginger’s Bar

Exquisite Bistro restaurant, Bar Food and Cocktails in Birmingham City Centre

Purnell’s Bistro is an exquisite bistro and cocktail bar in the heart of Birmingham city centre offering a menu loosely inspired by rustic British fare. Pork bellies, ham hocks, bread and butter puddings are presented in dainty ways and brush shoulders with more exotic ingredients hailing from further afield.

The Bistro décor and soft mood lighting create a relaxed but vibrant atmosphere that appeals to diners of all ages. Our cocktail bar is open all day to the public.

We welcome you to browse our website at your leisure, and please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information.
