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.

We hired out the 1st floor function room for my wife's 40th birthday. Bar 163 smoothly served drinks and light buffet for our 40 guests.

We have been here a number of times, for both breakfast and dinner. The breakfasts are really yummy and the set up is really nice at the front of the restaurant with vintage style furniture and big windows to watch the world go by - perfect place to relax with a cup of tea.

First visit for me (but not for my daughter who is a regular - she is fussy, so it must have something about it!). Average rating only because this is based on one visit - but average doesn't mean bad - it means what was expected. Lunch menu had a good range of options, from light choices to more filling...

You have made the right decision as all this feedback just helps us to work on improvements so by July we should be flying... Thanks for the thorough review and we'll try not to do anything to make you regret having your post graduation party with us. See you then. 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...

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 I... More

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
