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

We went for lunch and there seems to be a specials menu for lunch (6-7 dishes to choose from ranging from £4-£10). Great service with nice wine and a range of beers. Staff attentive and helpful as they created additional vegetarian options for us. Food of great quality; definitely a nice change from all the fast food places in the... More

I have been to Bohemia with friends many times. We always have a great night, the food is amazing and the staff are just so friendly. The wine tasting evenings are excellent value for money with great wine and food complimenting each other. A credit to selly oak,a real gem

After seeing the reviews for Bohemia I really wanted to see whether the positives where true seeing as there are so many glowing reviews online. We arrived at around 7pm on a Friday, early June having only booked the table 10 to 15 minutes beforehand. When we arrived there was I think only a table of three in the restaurant,... More

I don't often write reviews but having read the most recent review of Bohemia, I felt I had to write about my own experience to prove what utter nonsense they have written. My two best friends and I dined here June 11th and had a marvellous evening. The place is small and intimate and the staff warm and attentive. Their... More

Friendly staff and really high quality food. A new menu every month gives you enough opportunity to try the full works and every dish delivers. This is quality food like you can't find outside of high-priced boutique areas. Enjoy this gem.

We have been going regularly to Bohemia for a number of years and always had a great meal and service, they do events now and then including wine tasting, but we had never been to one. So on Thursday we finally went and had a really good evening which was a set 3 courses with champagne to start and then... More

We went to Bohemia tonight to celebrate a wedding anniversary and had a great meal. The two courses and a glass of wine for £22 on a Wednesday night is amazing value. We had main courses and desserts which were hearty and delicious. The staff were friendly and welcoming. We will definitely return.
