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.

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

3 of us visited on a busy Saturday night- buzzing -and lovely atmosphere when we arrived. Staff were friendly but although very nice, I think our waitress may have been inexperienced. She asked if we'd like a starter and I asked for bread with oil and balsamic- she immediately turned around and walked off before I could ask if we... More

A party of 4 of us had evening meal of 3 courses. Location and restaurant is casually styled and informal, well done out. Menu was fine. I had mussels and the others shared an Italian platter with not enough bread but had to ask 2 waitresses for more. Steaks for main course but I asked for medium and my colleague... More

Very sorry to hear the floor staff weren't up to standard on your visit, I've had a word with everyone and hopefully they'll learn from your feedback, they are generally pretty good but I have on occasion noticed a tailing off of attention towards the end of service so will work on that. Thanks for the comments. More

I randomly stopped in for a quick Sunday breakfast and was pleasantly surprised. It had a fairly straightforward breakfast menu, but it was well executed. In particular, the bread was good and the bacon crispy. There was a nice casual atmosphere, good for lingering over coffee. From the outside it doesn't look like much, but the inside has a shabby...

The wine problem shouldn't happen as we use a Verre du Vin system but I'm guessing that the bottle you were served from somehow got overlooked and may have been tainted, more training!!!. I tried the Malbec again and it really is quite good as a house wine. Sorry about the lack of Rioja by the glass but there is... More

Dropped in for brunch with my girlfriend and her 3 year old son on my birthday. It's a lovely venue, with charming staff and plenty of ambience. The eggs benedict were top notch, as was the Croque Madame. The waitress wished me a happy 30th birthday (despite my 40th badge) and delivered my food with a birthday candle, you cant... More

I moved to Egham just over a year ago and have forgotten how many times I've been to Bar 163. It's beautifully decorated with good music, the staff are very friendly and attentive and the food is gorgeous! I would definitely recommend bar 163.
