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.

I have been going here ever once it opened do about 30 years always been a fan - not been for sometime and last week decided it was time for a visit - food still ok with a varied menu and daily specials and a good wine list but service felt rushed and definitely got the impression they wanted us...

Very disappointed to hear that you weren't treated as well you should have been; the kitchen should certainly not be closed to you once you'd had a meal unless you made it clear you've finished which I'm guessing isn't the case. I don't think this reflects the way we work as we have a clear policy regarding such things, but... More

If you want to feel like you're on holiday in the med, come here in summer! If you want a unique menu with chic decor and a cosy decor, come here in winter. If you want good food, good service and good value, come to Bar 163. It is far and away the best place in Egham, be it for... More

There is a certain magical coziness to this place tha I really like, probably because it is quite small and filled with fairylights.

Hopefully the coziness won't disappear with the fairy lights when they come down, might have to extend the deadline beyond twelve days..thanks for the comments More

Had our team Christmas meal here - the food and service is first class and if you are lucky enough to have 8 wanting turkey you get your own WHOLE turkey to carve and serve. And it was moist perfectly cooked and served with all the traditional trimmings. Starters and deserts were also first rate, generous portions and beautifully served.... More
