What a nice venue. Sat outside for lunch. Great menu. Varied and different. Difficult to make decisions! Wasn't rushed and spent most of the afternoon whiling away time. Just lovely to be in such a relaxed environment. Well worth a visit.

A spur of the moment dinner in Egham. We have never had a duff meal here. Tonight was delight on warm summer evening we were able to enjoy the courtyard garden. Great good, great wine, great service. Go there while the weather holds for a memorable evening.

Please let the weather hold, it's so nice that everyone​ is getting to use the garden which looks so great at this time of year. Glad you managed to enjoy a few hours out there and with good food, wine and service too, sounds delightful. Thanks for your comments. More

Visited here in July 2016. Good vibe to the restaurant even though it was mid-week. Very good choice of food on the menu - the large number in our party seemed to distract them. Service no better than adequate.

Visited for the third time, I think. Arrived with my cousin who is blind, so three of us including his guide dog. We sat outside so that I could indulge my disgusting habit and no sooner was the menu presented than a bowl of water appeared for the dog. I ordered the mussels, of which there were plenty and my...

The food was undoubtedly good, specially the signature dishes (e.g. the beefburger). However, I am a big guy and the portions were too small for me, e.g only one skewer of meat for the chicken kebab. Given the portion sizes I thought the food was a bit pricey. Service was good and quick. Atmosphere was pleasant but once the place... More

Please you enjoyed the food and the place so much, sorry to hear you left a little hungry, will check the kebab size but it's usually a decent portion. Not sure what I can do about the noise, unsurprisingly it's a good sign from my perspective but I do understand it can become quite loud on particularly busy days. On... More

Just had an excellent meal at 163 in Egham. Every part of it was delicious and cooked perfectly. The staff couldn't have been friendlier and the service was faultless. The atmosphere was great and the decor is more interesting than standard restaurants. Really can't speak highly enough of this place.

We often go down for breakfast at the weekend with our dogs. They really have got it spot on. Great staff, great food and great atmosphere. You really must eat outside in the garden on a hot summers day in the dappled shade. Very dog friendly too

Well apart from the 'hot summers' have to say thanks for such a fine review, the garden is great though, just do need a little more sunshine to really bring it to life. Glad to know all the other elements are working so well, thanks again and see you soon. More

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.
