4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We met here for a catch up. Food was good, the Moroccan cheese to start was delicious. One of our party is gluten free and although the menu was a little confusing (we were shown 3 different ones!), the staff were very accommodating and the kitchen did alter the dishes slightly. Very friendly staff and good food reasonably priced. Would... More

Decent place to eat, i went for breakfast with my husband and the staff were friendly and helpful and they chatted to us but nothing stood out in particular. The breakfast i thought was a little dear at roughly £10 each for an English breakfast and a drink in comparison to a small cafe, but i suppose you pay that... More

Went there last week for lunch with my children. Sat in the garden at the back. Beautiful out there. Can't really see it from the front of the restaurant. The staff were lovely. Portion sizes were big for my appetite, but my boys enjoyed everything. Very reasonable too. Would definitely recommend it especially on a nice sunny day. Loved the... More

The food is alright, but it should focus more on one kitchen so that the quality will come out more. My risotto could have been cooked a bit longer. I also came here with my colleage for breakfast the day before and the food was really good. I had poached eggs with salmon. So it feels a bit like hit... More

Thanks for your thoughts on the kitchen and the good review. I understand your point, although we have developed our somewhat diverse menu over the years to cater to our various customers' requirements; it makes for a very easy place to just drop into whatever the occasion, obviously this requires some extra skills in the kitchen which fortunately we have,...

Serving up good barista-made coffees and classic brunch dishes (scrambled eggs on toast with salmon, eggs Benedict etc) this was a good weekday venue. Servers got a bit confused with orders (esp. accommodating gluten-free) and some dishes were incomplete, but the quality was there and we all left satisfied. Would return.

Thanks, great review, even if the staff struggled a little with your requirements, isn't usually a problem as the chefs are good at adapting, maybe a little more training on the floor is required. See what happens next time... More

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.

Description
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.
