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.

Having moved to the area recently I was eager to find an excellent independent restaurant off the student stomping ground. This place did not disappoint. I'd recommend booking a table in advance. The ambience was great, it has a nice personal and intimate feel. The staff are pleasant and it felt cosy and warm on a winter's evening. We had... More

I really like this restaurant, it's a fantastic little place, great food, lovely people and the value for money is superb. The food is always of a very high standard, they stock some really nice beers and the wines are great. The guys who run it are also really nice people, you couldn't feel more welcome.

We were alerted to Bohemia by Trip Advisor and had read the reviews, however we are also locals and had always thought of Bohemia as a cafe, we were mistaken it is much more than a cafe and It certainly deserves the ratings. It is clean an tidy inside, well lit and generally pleasant. We were offered the November menu... More

Very welcoming on arrival and throughout our visit - you didn't feel pressurised to place your order or rush your meal. We checked the menu on line before our visit but on the night we visited the menu was completely different and the price had slightly increased. Perhaps the owner should keep an eye on updating his website. Although not... More

Found it easily with the help of our lady sat nav. Looked nice from outside and it's nice and cosy inside, although it does have a bit of a daytime cafe feel. I ordered soup for my starter. Leek n Potato. Very creamy n nice. Wifey had scallops which she enjoyed. Thumbs up for the starters. Yay! The wine.....ordered a... More

Took my sister here for her birthday and we had a wonderful meal. She and my wife had the slow cooked belly pork and I had venison. Excellent food, friendly service and a really nice atmosphere.

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
