Description: 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.

Excellent place for good food, coffee and breakfast. The atmosphere was great with a lovely log burner. They offer a very comprehensive breakfast menu with classy options. The freshly squeezed orange juice is to die for. Staff and service is efficient and well organised. Open all day until midnight. Well worth a visit.

I visited here with my family for my mum's birthday. Booking was simple and I was able to choose my preferred table. On the night the food was excellent. I have been dining here on and off for ten years and on this occasion the food was the best I have experienced. Everybody in the group commented on the quality,... More

I've eaten here a couple of times. The food has always been average stuff that I could have easily cooked at home for a much lower price. The wines were never great and they never offered to open them at my table and also did not allow us to taste the wine beforehand. The staff have never been very friendly... More

Well you're back again. Having had your previous slanderous review removed which claimed we constantly popped out to buy our wine from Tesco and then overcharge, now it seems they're simply just not good enough for such a connoisseur, strange as all come from high end London wholesalers who scour the world for quality, perhaps your sophisticated taste just doesn't...

One of the better choices in Egham. Always one of our standbys when we are looking for a pleasant meal at a reasonable price. There is always something creative with the entree selection. Their menu is refreshed frequently. The staff is always friendly and great to offer suggestions.

This is a nice restaurant/pub in the High Street of Egham. We've been several times for lunch as well as for dinner and we have always had good food in a nice atmosphere. Staff is always friendly and there is a good choice of salads, meat/fish and veggie dishes. I would book a table beforehand if you're with a group... More

Met a friend for a girlie lunch & catch up and this was just perfect. Whilst a limited menu, we were both happy with our selection, one of mussles and the other sausage & mash. Service very good, not rushed. Prices very resonable and nice vibe in the restaurant, albeit a little tired in decor. Would revisit for lunch, but... More

Me and my wife had popped into Bar 163 for a quick drink, but ended up staying for a bottle rather than a glass! We were greeted warmly by a young blonde waitress, and sat on a lovely corner table. When we told her we only wanted a drink, fearing it was solely a restaurant and we would be turned... More

Stopped in Egham for a light snack Early lunchtime on a Saturday. My husband had been once before & liked it. My choice went to scallops on pea purée. We didn't have to wait very long. The dish was nicely presented and...delicious!!! Tasty, fleshy, well seasoned and tender scallops. Small but soo good. The place itself is a new old... More

We came here for a family brunch. The venue is attractive - if you can, choose to be in the main room or outside on the terrace. We were in the back room, which is fine, but a little cramped. The menu is quite limited for the weekend brunch: standard fare, eggs Benedict, the traditional British fry up. but if... More
