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 lunch time bite

We go here reasonably often at lunch time. It has a casual and unpretentious charm about it. The food is uncomplicated and tasty, served reasonably quickly which is what you want during a lunch break.

We visited Bar 163 on Saturday night. It was 50% full at 8.30pm- not a great sign of good business. We sat in the front section – a couple of families left and we were left alone. We had a beer, glass of prosecco and some olives- all good. Our starter arrived quickly. The goat’s cheese tart was soft, tasteless... More

I don't think I would return either if it was that awful, not sure quite why it would be however, I can understand that there may be the occasional dish that fails to meet the standard but all four seems a bit unlikely, maybe just not your lucky night. From what I am told there were actually some compliments from... More

Booked this place to celebrate my daughters graduation at Royal Holloway University as it was one of her favourite eating places when she lived here and we had previously eaten here on a Sunday. Pleased to report that they didn't let us down. Very accommodating, rang earlier in the day to say we would be one person down and might... More

A nice place to eat, not child orientated at all, so if you want to get away from the rabble and relax then co e here. Food is good, menu is reassuringly limited with quality rather than quantity. A good place to eat for couples or small groups

Thanks for your feedback and observations on the menu which we do try to keep manageable but also varied enough to offer our regulars some interest. Our view on children is that they are welcome but should be treated in a similar manner to everyone else, although we do get the chefs to adjust meals accordingly. Anyway glad you like... More

Came here as 5 girlfriends for a birthday dinner. The restaurant has a lovely ambience, the food was great & the staff were really lovely, very accommodating & extremely attentive without being in your face. We were all very impressed & would definitely return.

Six of us had a very nice breakfast, although the poached eggs were a bit over cooked. Very attentive staff and service good. Would go again.

I know some people find it odd but I see no harm in allowing people walking their dogs to be allowed to call in for a meal, so we try to make them welcome as long as they behave. Pleased to hear that you enjoyed the food as well, thanks for your comments. More

My friends and I use this cafe/restaurant regularly and especially on a Sunday for brunch. The food is reliable and value for money with a good variety.

I have lived in Egham and have always seen Bar 163 but assumed it was a café.

It's always surprising how many people feel unsure about what we do, something I've always been aware of but struggled to address as we want to keep the style as relaxed as possible, this can in turn make it hard to figure out what actually goes on inside.
