We are open with reduced opening hours 🙂 Now taking bookings for Christmas! Feel the JOY

Like everywhere else, we’ve made some changes to help maintain social distancing, including a booking system for tables upstairs and table service. Tables downstairs and outside cannot be reserved and are still first come, first served. Check availability and book your table in advance (right up to 30mins before arrival) here!

RULE OF SIX…we cannot take bookings for more than 6 people

TIER 2…You should not meet anyone outside your own support bubble, inside, in any setting. If you would like your table positioned next to another group you can book separately and send us an email

LIVE MUSIC BOOKINGS…please note if you are booking for a gig/jazz you need to select ‘live music seating’ to get a table in the right room, if this option doesn’t come up it means the gig is SOLD OUT. You may be able to book less seats, contact us via email for more info

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.
