BÓHA London offers a unique, new dining experience — fusing the best of Irish and British cuisine, alongside meticulously created cocktails, wines, whisky and champagnes, in an atmosphere of immersive refinement. This really is a love letter to Ireland with a focused menu of creative Irish-inspired dishes and ingredients in a fun atmosphere and the founders already have their sights on Miami, Dubai and New York.
The space at BÓHA London has it all – A main floor, a stunning covered terrace, and Shibeen by Boha open till 1:30 am, BÓHA London embodies sophistication and fun. The restaurant’s innovative, Irish-British fusion menus showcase a lighter, more playful side to the two cuisines, serving beautifully presented plates featuring the finest ingredients, with a focus on exceptional seasonal produce that is sustainably sourced.
BÓHA’s unique new approach will be reflected in each dish on the menu, with bar bites and snacks (Amh & Beag) including foraged mushroom toast served with whipped cauliflower & truffle and a cherry caramel burnt Cambridge cream with duck liver and hazelnuts.
The menu’s vegetables and more (Glasraí & Níos mó) include a Kerrs pink potato carpaccio, served with old Winchester custard and pickled shallots, and a clever hispi cabbage in house dry aged bacon and beef dripping.
Lager plates for the table (Don Tábla) include a signature Wagyu short rib Irish stew, with stout, malt onions and fermented celery; alongside a deliciously low-calorie herb-fed Yorkshire organic half-chicken, garnished with burnt lemon and chicken syrup. In addition, the menu boasts a whole Brixham Dover sole, with brown butter, capers, lemon, parsley and samphire.
The menu’s Síniú (signature) section includes the impressive selection of meats displayed in BÓHA’s dry-aged locker, including an Irish chocolate fed Wagyu tomahawk, a Wagyu sirloin, and an Irish whiskey marinated charcoal cooked Irish Hanger Steak — all on display next to its glass fronted kitchen — allowing diners the opportunity to watch their steaks sizzle. The steaks are really next level. Tender, full of flavour and all Irish.
Puddings (Maróg) include an Irish take on an Affogato; Báite, with vanilla ice cream, Caravan espresso, and Five Farms Irish Cream; alongside a chocolate & peanut dessert, with caramel ice cream, nougat and crispy sponge.
BÓHA’s stellar cheese (Cáis) selection includes only the best Irish and British cheeses, including Gubbean — a semi-soft, washed rind Irish cheese; a Baron Bigod traditional Brie-de-Meaux style cheese produced in the UK; Coolea cheese, made in Ireland, but with traditional Dutch techniques; and a Shorrock Lancashire Bomb, sourced from the Shorrock family, which has been producing incredible cheeses since 1923.
BÓHA’s expert mixologists are masters of their craft, concocting world-class cocktails that push the boundaries of creativity and flavour. A highlight of the cocktail menu is the Bóha classic spiced Old Fashioned, made tableside by an in-house mixologist with a rare single malt called The Taoscán — the tonka bean, clove, star anise, cinnamon and cardamom are then all torched tableside before serving.
The Mon Cheri is made with Le Portier Cognac, Azaline Saffron Vermouth, vanilla, cherry and Lustau Oloroso Sherry. My Little Dear is a moreish combination of Tanqueray No.10 infused with peach stones, peach, RinQuinQuin peach liqueur, lemon and English sparkling wine.
