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.

Disappointing as I was expecting great things.

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. I thought the food was expensive for what I had. I didnt think the food was particularly exciting and I was expecting a more interesting menu. The... read more

I love this place and visit as often as I can whenever I am in that part of Town. The food is perfect and the service is excellent. This time I had the swordfish which was delicious, another time I noticed that they had a salmon& white crab risotto on the the specials menu as a main course after I... 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

I lived in Egham many years ago and used to frequent Bar 163 often, loving the atmosphere and the homemade pasta dishes with rustic garlic bread. So when I happened to be there to meet a friend recently, I was keen to revisit. We were a party of four - my husband had the Spanish chicken and one other of... More

Went for business lunch with client and colleagues. Went for simple option - sausages and mash. Sausages badly burnt and charred and very little gravy. Very disappointing
