Taste of Purslane

Thursday, March 7th, 2024

We will be serving a small plates menu, showcasing the best of British seafood (plus a few cameos) paired with seasonal produce.

Select multiple dishes from the menu to share or perhaps just keep them all to yourself. Each dish is served to you as and when it is ready making for a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

Avoid the rush hour and stop by on your way home from work for a drink and a couple of small plates. Or stay all evening and add to your table as you go.

There will also be more wines available by the glass and carafe to complete your evening.
