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. 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.

Good friendly service. Nicely set out restaurant with a good atmosphere. The food was fine, no specific issues (except the use of margarine instead of butter with the bread rolls?!) but it certainly wasn't anything other than average. I would eat there again if I was passing and was hungry but I wouldn't make the effort to book in specially-... More

As usual Bohemia had a limited but enticing menu and well cooked and presented food. Service is knowledgeable, friendly and timely - never rushed but attentive all the same. Definitely recommended

We ate here last night, once again we were really impressed with the delicious food and the great customer service, which is friendly, efficient and calm. It is also refreshing to eat somewhere on a Saturday night where you're not rushed so others can use your table, or given a table about 9 o'clock! Superb.

Excellent food - top quality cooking and a lovely atmosphere at very reasonable prices - a local community restaurant which is an antidote to the blandness of corporate restaurant chains and some of the stuffy overpriced city centre restaurants . We really feel valued customers at Bohemia and have always had superb food and the feeling that you have had... More

I attended on a Wednesday night and had the 2 courses and a glass of wine for £22. The food was great and the wine was good quality. Pleasant front of house with excellent service. Would recommend and would return, thanks for a great night!

Had dinner here yesterday.Booked on line and even though we arrived early they were expecting us,offered roomy table in compact restaurant. Very friendly welcome and food extremely good and imaginative. The meatballs and pasta starter were the best meat balls I have tasted. Not the best of locations but the welcome, ambience and food are top class. We will return.

Went for a fantastic first meal at Bohemia. The 3 course meal me and my girlfriend were served was fantastically prepared, a great combination of looks and taste. Our waiter was extremely friendly, and added to the vibe and feel of the restaurant. Overall, lovely small place that had an intimate feel, coupled with beautiful exquisite food. Pricing is quite...

Another excellent meal at Bohemia last week: I had the Risotto rice cake to start followed by the chef's special of veal and my partner had the mackerel starter and lamb shank for the main course. All the food was cooked to perfection with lots of flavour and both meats were succulent and tender-the mains were served with a generous... More

We originally found Bohemia through the Gourmet card - but it's become one of our regular restaurants - we've been every couple of months or so for several years now. Food is good, so are the wines, and the atmosphere as well. Live music once a month is a bonus. A good place to take friends and relations for a... More
