We are open with reduced opening hours.

Like everywhere else, we’ve made some changes to help maintain social distancing, including a booking system for tables upstairs. Tables downstairs and outside cannot be reserved and are still first come, first served.

Please note that from 14th September the new ‘rule of six’ means we will not be able to take bookings for more than 6 people. If you would like your table positioned next to another group you will need to book separately and send us an email.

Check availability and book your table in advance (right up to 30mins before arrival) here! Alternatively, if there are no free tables downstairs, you can ask for upstairs availability at the bar when you arrive.

Cherry Reds cafe is an independent bar on the gorgeous John Bright Street in Birmingham City Centre, a stone’s throw from New Street Station.

We keep our cafe food simple, cooked to order, and with options for all diets.  Our focus is to provide you the best value for money without being stingy on portion size or dropping quality you should expect, such as local free range eggs or cakes that are homemade.


We’ve been serving tasty craft beers since our humble beginnings in 2010, supporting local brewers and providing you a drinks range for any mood.  Being a cafe, we also make sure our soft drinks selection is varied, including freshly blended milkshakes with real ice cream as well as freshly ground coffee.
