Visited Bohemia on the off chance as I was doing some work close by. Was intrigued by its small exterior and a real foodies menu. I ordered of there set menu having rack of lamb and the sticky toffee pudding both were to die for. When working in the selly oak area I will definitely be eating here again. Hats... More

Me and a colleague called into Bohemia to last Tuesday lunch time to discuss the community and fundraising events we're organising during 2017. We both ordered from the special board, myself the chicken curry & my colleague the cottage pie. Both meals were delicious and reasonably priced and we had the pleasure of meeting the new proprietors. We had previously... More

Bohemia was always well run with really good food, but after a change of chef and front of house, I will not be going again. The food was inedible so we sent it back and had a different dish. Not much better 2nd time round. One waiter understood no English and the other was like a rabbit in the headlights.... More

We have been going here for years and always had good food for good value. A change of management and chef resulted tonight in inedible food we had to send back. No apology, no bill reduction and we won't be going there again.

After reading the reviews I expected to see new faces but decided to give it a shot anyway. We arrived at 7:30pm and to my surprise we were warmly welcomed and the confit duck was amazing. It seems for now the initial hiccups have been addressed. I will try them again, also because the manager explained they are new to... More

This was one of our favourite local restaurants, but it's changed hands and it's not really not a good initial impression. Poor, slow service, didn't know the drinks menu nor the main menu and at 8.00 had already run out of the fish option, "Red snapper" an alternate sea bass was offered which we ordered and then were told 10...

We read the previous review about the restaurant being sold on the train on our way to eat there last night. Having read the reviews and looked at the menu on line we had booked and were looking forward to a great meal. Sadly the previous review appeared to be correct as we arrived to a fairly full restaurant where... More

My starter of goats cheese, with roasted hazelnuts and sourdough bread did not include any of these ingredients - they were eventually presented to me on separate saucers - well done to the chef for representing them when asked. Alas, my dressed watercress salad,as the side to my lemon chicken,was a bunch of unadulterated flat leaf parsley. I sincerely hope... More

We wanted somewhere local we could go to where we had not been before. We were not disappointed we have been a couple of lunch times and once in the evening and not been disappointed. The food selection was excellent and at night seems to vary each month. The food was well cooked and presented. The service is excellent and... More

Visited Bohemia for lunch in December and again last week for dinner. In December we chose to have the fixed price lunch; main course with a glass of Prosecco which also included a coffee and mini desert at £16.50, this was great value.

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.
