This is a sample menu and dishes may change throughout the month.

Our menu uses fresh ingredients, cooked onsite, often using sous vide techniques. Therefore, if it takes us a little while to prepare your meal it’s because we’re treating it with the love and attention it deserves.

PLEASE NOTE: Some dishes can be altered to omit allergens, please inform us when booking so that we can make more options available to you. While we take the utmost care at Purslane to prevent cross contamination of allergens in our dishes, we cannot guarantee ingredients have not come into contact with traces before they reach our premises.

Please note we cannot accept cheques or American Express.
