Glynn Purnell has opened a tapas restaurant in his home city of Birmingham.

Plates by Purnell’s is located one street away from his flagship restaurant in Birmingham’s Colmore Business District on the site of the former Spanish café bar Pinchos on Edmund Street

Launched earlier this month, the 28-cover restaurant serves sharing plates inspired by classic Spanish tapas with influences from Purnell’s time training and working in northern Spain. The menu includes small plates such as anchovies on toast; chorizo in red wine; cheese croquettes; grilled octopus, and crème Catalan.

“Having worked in northern Spain, I have had a soft spot for pintxos or tapas for many years. In Spain, I used to spend my days off eating and drinking in small tapas bars, which is the same philosophy we want to breed here at Plates by Purnell’s,” says Purnell.

“There are some recognisable tapas dishes on the menu- all with an added sprinkle of Purnell’s magic. The food is tasty, satisfying and will put a smile on people’s faces

“In the current climate, people are very conscious of what they’re spending, and I wanted to be able to provide an offering for anything from a full gastronomic evening, a pitstop while shopping or a pre-theatre bite.”

The tapas restaurant follows the opening of The Mount Pub by Glynn Purnell ​in Henley-In-Arden in spring 2022.
