I have driven past this place for many years without even realising it was a restaurant. Perhaps the name coupled with the fact that it is next door but one to a brothel made me think it was an entirely different kind of establishment. I may not be alone.

I booked my sisters baby shower at Bohemia for 18 guest in July. I was extremely happy with the venue and service I recieved. Andrew and his staff made us all feel very welcome and were very accommodating for all guests needs. We all had a fantastic main course and stunning puddings! I couldn't recommend this restaurant enough! Brilliant service... More

Lovely atmosphere, loads of food choices and excellent value for money. Lovely surprise, as I didn't expect it to be so good.

We decided to head out on the canal towards Selly Oak and looked this place up on the way. It does look a little like a cafe inside but had a lovely laid back atmosphere and our waitress was friendly and attentive. They were out of Brooklyn lager so we opted for the draft Long horn ipa. My wife has... More

Thank you for taking the time to write about Bohemia. I agree the longhorn IPA was substandard that day, the heat seems to have affected the cooling system creating too much froth, If I had realised I would have taken it off sale. We've fixed the problem now. With that in mind if you return to Bohemia please mention this... More

This was our first visit but we will definitely be back! The warm welcome, first, and then the delicious food... The menu changes regularly so we can't wait to try the next one, but for now we recommend the ham hock terrine, the tandoori monkfish tail, the steak and the lamb, all gorgeous. The only negative was the 'twice-cooked' chips... More

It's been a long time since we had been to Bohemia, but we were in the area and managed to get a table. We recently visited Rome and Barcelona and had eaten out a lot in all sorts of restaurants and we both agreed at the end of our meal that Bohemia is always a favourite, a relaxed atmosphere with...

The previous reviewer took the words out of my mouth, as this is also my favourite restaurant. I frequently meet up with friends from Birmingham and Bohemia is the only venue for us. Both the £15 lunchtime offer and the frequently changing evening menu together with the cosy friendly atmosphere never fails to please us. This month I tried the... More

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

Description

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.
