Restaurant of the Month is brought to you by Dine Birmingham, the city's online restaurant guide.
There’s a new pub/bar/restaurant/kitchen in Moseley. Call it what you will, Bohemian is the latest venue to stake its claim to the prime corner spot where Wake Green Road and Moseley’s high street cross paths.
Unlike The Junction before it, you couldn’t call Bohemian an ‘old man’s pub’, nor is it somewhere to go and watch the football. Instead, the place has been hit by the vintage-industrial (vindustrial?) fever, combining antiquey dinner chairs with warehouse-style brickwork.
What’s the vibe?
It fits well with the feel of nearby venues like The Bull’s Head and the Fighting Cocks; quirky and stylish, with a warm and welcoming feel as you go in. The retro fireplace in the corner is a nice touch, and the well-stocked, shiny bar adds to the decor.
What’s on the menu?
The menu features quite a few eyebrow-lifters. You’ll find interesting options like Stop Yo’ Wafflin’ (chicken club sandwich with a waffle and barbecue sauce), and Kamano (Hawaiian BBQ salmon burger - they love their barbecue sauce here).
The bar bites menu lists a few more traditional choices like BBQ pork ribs and chicken wings, while the brunch selection is replete with American-inspired, maple-syrupy delights like pancakes and waffles.
The cocktails are definitely worth a mention - the list is both extensive and intriguing. A La Mode, to give you one example, blends Parfait Amour (a flowery purple liqueur) and Ciroc vodka with lemon sugar and prosecco.
What’s the damage?
Dinner and drinks at Bohemian shouldn’t set you back too much. Think pub prices.
Burgers = £6-7
Cocktails = £6.50+, Reduced to £5 during Cocktail Club hours
(Cocktail Club = Daily 5pm - 10pm, all day Wednesdays and Sundays)
