We, 3 ladies, visited Bar 163 last night, Saturday. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our reserved table which was next to a lovely burning log stove. We were served our drinks very quickly and starters arrived soon afterwards. All very tasty. We had steak and Spanish chicken for mains. Divine !! We could not manage a desert but... More

Great place family owned we shall be going for our Christmas Lunch and we should have enough people in our group to have the Turkey. Yes good venue and they always have very good festive decorations and a fine tree.

Pleased to hear you enjoy our Christmas efforts so much although may not be a real tree this year. The turkey is a good choice and served whole, which is why you need a few chums to share it with so let's hope you find enough although I'm sure we could be flexible on numbers. Thanks for the review. More

bar 163 can be very busy in the evenings, but on a Saturday morning it offers a combination of excellent breakfasts from the light to the substantial, good coffee, chilled music and a peaceful opportunity to read the morning newspapers. This could become habit forming. Excellent service, and very well cooked food whether pancakes and bacon, or the more indulgent... More

That's fantastic, pleased to see such positive comments being made. It's really good that the Saturday Brunch has become so popular but still retains an easy and relaxed feel, nice to see it being enjoyed so much. Thanks for letting us know. More

We eat regularly at Bar 163 - the food is always excellent and innovative. The chefs offer standard fare but some dishes which offer new/different seasoning and flavours. Service is very efficient and welcoming. Patrons are never rushed, they often linger browsing newspapers or the internet. Bar 163 is a splendid addition to the eateries in Egham some of which...

Firstly I love the look of this restaurant and it has its place in Egham. I really want it to be good and feel they have so much more potential here. The issue I have is I find the food ok and anyone who knows Mediterranean food would not be that impressed. The service is also very mediocre and so... More

I'm glad you like the place so much, a shame you don't seem to have enjoyed your meal though, and that you weren't impressed by the staff. I'm really surprised as all the staff at the moment are working well, so we very rarely get any complaints. Obviously there can be oversights but they are pretty unusual, so not sure... More

My work colleagues and I eat lunch here fairly regularly and have had great service and lovely food even if over priced. Left today feeling let down and ripped off. Ordered the steak sandwich - medium/well done due to pregnancy. Waited 40 minutes for food due to two largeish tables coming in. When food arrived - they provided a rib... More

Very sorry to hear that things didn't go well, it seemed that you really enjoyed yourself last time, such a shame it all went so wrong on this visit,.

When it has no bun. Visited with a large party. 3 of us ordered burgers. WE got that, but no bun. None of us. This was really, really odd. Then we had a side salad full of raw onion. Who does that? Our drinks took about 30 minutes to arrive as well, and the whole day was too slow. A... More

Many years ago when we opened, all of the food on the menu was recreated from what we ate at home, and that included one of my all-time favourites, a grilled hamburger with sautéed potatoes and salad and adorned with nothing more than a scoop of garlic butter on the hamburger. What was particularly delicious was the flavour of the... More

Bar 163 is a great all round place to eat and socialise, with its "Depot Vente" style furnishings to the high quality of the food and service, it's a great choice if ever you're in Egham or the surrounding area. I particularly love the breakfasts they serve - opening at 08:00 each day, I often have my first meeting of... 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.
