Description: Bar 166 opened in Horsforth in December 2004 as a first time project for Matthew Jones, answering the prayers of Horsforth residents in dire need of an upmarket, multi-purpose venue to eat and drink in. The food is fantastic in its simplicity, offering luscious British meals, all at very affordable prices. The evening bistro menu is priced at £6 for starters and main courses start at £12, a bargain considering the quality and freshness. The bar is lively and welcoming with an exceptional drinks array. On a weekend the bar plays a wide range of funky, soulful music, culminating in an electric atmosphere. Food served 6 days: Tuesday to Thursday 4pm-10pm, Friday and Saturday 12pm-10pm and Sundays 12pm -8pm for a superb Sunday lunch!

I took my parents, wife and friends for an evening meal last night.
The ambiance, service and food were fantastic and very reasonably priced. They also had a very good wine & champagne selection of which again was very well priced.
Overall a superb eating out experience and we won't hesitate to visit again soon.

Booked at short notice Sat 10.11.12 for early dinner before 8pm Bradford Cinema.

Staff attentive not intrusive, the early bird menu just right.

We told the waitress we had to be out by ?o'clock and she looked after us.

My home made scotch egg starter hit the spot, how did they manage to keep the yolk runny?
Cheese + bacon burger great for a big hungry bloke. Wife & daughter's food all good too.

Additional drinks when you needed them.

Third visit over a 2 year period, all good.

Have just been for Sunday lunch. The food was ample and of a reasonable standard. Plenty of choice from two menus. The mushroom risotto was delicious as a starter wish I had had it as a main. Chose duck salad for main;was tasty,but overdone with red onion. Rest of family had roast dinners. Good portions of meat and veg. Would definitely return.

Recently visited Bar 166 & had another excellent meal. The menu is constantly being updated and the specials choice never fails to impress. The staff both in the bar and restaurant always treat you as long lost friends and could not be any more attentive. My wife and I have been visiting Bar166 for many years indeed back into the days when it was only a small restaurant under the name of Stewarts Wine Bar but have to admit that in its present guise as Bar166 it is by far the best it has been. Long may it continue. Looking forward to this coming Saturday when we have a table booked for another, we expect, enjoyable meal.
