we went as a group of co-workers and had a lovely lunch. Everyone enjoyed their choice. The mussels in wine were very tasty even as a starter.

A great looking place to eat inside - very stylish in that bar sort of way. The food we needed was in a rush as we had to get our daughter to the show she was appearing in. The service was good and they managed to get food to us in great time and when it arrived we all agreed... More

Back to Bar 163 for a couple more of their wonderful meals! The first time we had the Lamb & the Pork belly which were delicious followed by a gorgeous Panacotta & Espresso Martinis of course!

Sounds like a lot of fun and really helped by the great staff who really work hard to make it all work so well. Good to know that the food was memorable as well, got a strong team in the kitchen and they're down a couple, so doing really well in keeping it up. Thanks for your enthusiastic feedback. More

It has always an interesting menu with specials . Great energy. Lovely fire. It's always got character and their afternoon cakes are delicious. Food ingredients wonderful...

Well that's a really good all round review, thanks, pleased that you have enjoyed it for so many years and that says a lot for out staffs' ability to maintain the consistency, which makes all the difference. Only thing missing for now is the fire as we can't find a chimney sweep who isn't booked, back soon though I hope.... More

Bar 163 is a favourite spot in Egham, first by the friendliness of the staff, second by the lovely decor both inside and in the garden and finally by the tasty and fresh ingredients on your plate. Highly recommended.

nice place to have breakfast, lovely fresh orange juice that is almost impossible to find now days but the service could have been better

Thank Andy F
rich163Egham, Owner at Bar 163, responded to this review

I'll have to take a look at the service, strange as it's usually really good, someone must have had a late night... Pleased you enjoyed the orange juice, I agree, it is hard to find freshly squeezed, often seems to be pre-pressed and then who knows what else... Thanks for the feedback. More

Thanks, pleased you found it so cozy and enjoyed the food and wine. Maybe sit in the front next time, much more spacious and even cozier with the fire burning. More

Great place family owned we shall be going for our Christmas Lunch and we should have enough people in our group to have the Turkey. Yes good venue and they always have very good festive decorations and a fine tree.

Thank Max P
rich163Egham, Owner at Bar 163, responded to this review

Pleased to hear you enjoy our Christmas efforts so much although may not be a real tree this year. The turkey is a good choice and served whole, which is why you need a few chums to share it with so let's hope you find enough although I'm sure we could be flexible on numbers. Thanks for the review. More

bar 163 can be very busy in the evenings, but on a Saturday morning it offers a combination of excellent breakfasts from the light to the substantial, good coffee, chilled music and a peaceful opportunity to read the morning newspapers. This could become habit forming. Excellent service, and very well cooked food whether pancakes and bacon, or the more indulgent... More

It���s hard to believe that Bar 163 has been in Egham since 1984. More than twenty years on, 163 looks and feels as fresh as ever and continues to attract a varied crowd of young and not so young, professionals and students alike. Originally a bar with food the menu has become so popular over the years that we can safely call Bar 163 a restaurant ��� the Mediterranean inspired dishes have a real taste of summer, exactly what you���ll be after if you find yourself lucky enough to nab a table in the relaxing secret garden. But despite the food the relaxed, lively bar vibe remains, making this Egham���s most well loved venue.
