Description: Bohemia is a Modern British restaurant situated in Birmingham’s buzzing...
Bohemia is a Modern British restaurant situated in Birmingham’s buzzing Selly Oak area. This exciting addition to Birmingham's restaurant scene adds a continental feel to the area. Open almost all day, you can pop in for an afternoon lite bite with fair trade coffee or enjoy the more formal evening air at this smart and contemporary establishment. True to its name, Bohemia offers wonderfully relaxed and chilled vibe, and diners are made to feel instantly at ease. Head Chef Ross has created an exciting Modern British menu that changes monthly so you have a new array of choices upon every return visit. Diners love dishes like herb sausage, black pudding and duck egg terrine with plum tomato chutney; poached cod fillet with garlic, chilli and coriander butter; slow-cooked rib of beef with chorizo, dauphinoise potatoes; and Pimms and lemonade jelly with homemade strawberry clotted cream ice cream. Bohemia runs regular jazz nights, acoustic nights and comedy evenings.

My favorite restaurant in Birmingham, a small team who it's impossible not to like. I think they've been open about 10 years and have won some awards. I had beetroot gravalax in savoury choux pastry and belly pork with rhubarb, both were stunning. My wife had scallops and trout with pea and mint risotto, again both were very good. I... More

Having visited on many occasions I recently managed to book the whole restaurant for a special birthday. As always, good value well cooked food with friendly service in a relaxed environment. Cannot be over recommended. All 30 or so others who were there were of the same mind.

Bohemia is a joy to visit, with really good food and service all at a good price. The monthly changing menu means that is always interesting, the food is expertly cooked and front of house the atmosphere is always lovely and Andrew is a charming host. Thoroughly recommended.

Bohemia is good value for money. The portion sizes for the main courses are huge compared to many city centre establishments. I had two course and I'm too full the morning after to even contemplate breakfast! Everyone in my party of 7 who had fish or shellfish dishes rated them very highly. My scallops were perfectly cooked. My main of... More

Normally fine dining equals a stuffy restaurant either totally 'out of date' or 'over trendy with a pretentious twist', I am pleased to say that Bohemia is fine dining French style. In France you can go to any many independent restaurants that are often shabby chic whereby the food is to die for food. And that is how I would... More

Hired out the whole restaurant for a friends birthday. Good menu put together for us which was both tasty and well worth the price. It's nice to find a restaurant that is good quality and it part of a chain. Would highly recommend.
