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.

Great food, service slipping.

I am a regular customer at bar 163, and am a big fan of the menu and - usually - the friendly service. On my last couple of visits however I have been disappointed by the standard of service. I have been served on 3 occasions by a waitress who is abrupt, and borders on being downright rude. When... read more

Waitress loud and acting like a child (shouting at chef/moaning she wanted cheesecake) which spoiled our experience. Didn't say what specials were or what kitchen had run out of which wasted time when ordering. Added extra cost to Bill for puddings which she didn't mention either!!! Go to Villa Rosa instead if you need to eat on the high street

Thanks for the insight into the staff's bad behaviour, I will be dealing with that tomorrow but I'm sorry that you weren't happy. Not sure why they were having such problems with the simple task of running the restaurant but clearly a few things not right on your visit, I'm sure you and all who heed your review will be...

We hired the balcony room for a birthday party, opting for the buffet menu. The whole planning of the event went well. The Evening itself was amazing. The buffet was exceptional, with quality of food and quantity. The room was just the perfect setting. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Bar163 were brilliant in helping us plan and evening...

Thanks for letting me know all is not well, unfortunately we have had a bit of a turnover in staff recently so there may be a little way to go before all the new recruits come up to standard, be patient, we'll get there. More

Two bad omelettes, how do they manage it?? Sorry to hear that the staff weren't dealing with this as well as they should, I have spoken to everyone and this should be a lesson to them to ensure that their standards remain high at all times. Thanks for letting me know. More

I came here with a large group of friends for a celebration. The restaurant had been highly recommended by one of them so I guess I was expecting a lot.

It's a pity to hear that your visit wasn't a success, an unlucky experience I am sure as the reputation has certainly not been built on poor overpriced food, I hope your friends had a better time and I'm sorry that it wasn't what you expected. Thanks for the feedback though, we are always aiming to keep things at a... More

The restaurant looks very inviting from outside. Once inside there is a nice ambience and the place is very clean. We chose to have a drink at the bar before dinner and they have a good wine list with some rather nice wines on offer. The menu has a very good variety of dishes and reasonably priced. I opted for...

A small, quaint establishment. The staff is professional and know their menu. Items on the menu are changed daily (daily specials) and their drinks are very yummy. The food is cooked perfectly and always served fresh from the kitchen. They allow dogs to join their owners and offer outside seating as well. The sweet potato fries are my favorite and... More
