We booked a table for friday evening on arrival we were greeted by very friendly staff and shown to a lovely table for two in the window.We had drinks while we studied the mouthwatering menu although not vast it had many dishes to tempt us and our final choices did not disappoint.In fact they were so good we did'nt want them to finish! It was all fresh, tasty and cooked to perfection.Its a fish lovers paradise although there were several other options for non fish lovers on the menu.There is a very good choice of wines and spirits.
Because of the quality of the food and the ambience we thought that it was very reasonably priced and can't wait until our next visit.

Although only recently opened, we have already visited Purslane twice and thoroughly enjoyed the experience on both occasions. Great food (we are both fish lovers) and service to match. We will be returning again soon.

We were taken to Puslane for a special treat and it certainly lived up to the occasion. Greeted with a warm welcome and friendly service in an ambience that is soft, comfortable and relaxing. A small restaurant but busy enough on a Saturday lunchtime to create a warm atmosphere. The choice of dishes is discreet but it is varied and the presentation is very inventive.The quality of the food was superb and the interesting combination of the ingredients of each dish made it a very enjoyable experience and we certainly hope to visit again soon.

We had an excellent meal here to celebrate our Ruby wedding anniversary. The food was very good and presentation was immaculate. The staff were very friendly and there is a nice cosy atmosphere.

We ate here for lunch and were not disappointed. We'd heard great things about the head chef in advance, but wow did he produce some outstanding cuisine. The fish (I had salmon) was cooked to perfection, and the soup starter was just the right quantity and flavours divine. Dessert was mouthwatering too. And presentation second to none - a true work of art. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly - the waiting staff knew what they were talking about (a rarity these days!). Cant wait to return - a real gem of a restaurant.
