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.

“Moroccan Lamb Shank & Prosecco anyone??”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

I really liked this restaurant. This was a lunchtime visit, so wasn't lucky enough to experience the evening vibe. Really absorbing environment with just the right mood tempo of background music. The service was excellent and the staff couldn't have been more attentive (that's attentive NOT intrusive). The food was melt in the mouth tasty: Crusty bread with olive oil and garlic olives to start and Moroccan Lamb Shank with couscous for the main all washed down with a few cheeky glasses of Prosecco. All value for money also. I'm from way out west and would have expected the price to be over the odds, pleasantly surprised that I could have been paying for a meal back home....or is it that Cheltenham is over priced!? Loved the restaurant and the openness of the dining area upstairs with a quaint little balcony. Please discover this place for yourself :)

“Favourite Burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

I have been coming here since the opened and they still the best burgers I have ever enjoyed.
It has changed over the years but the food is always of a good standard and the wine selection is good too.

“Fabulous and such a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Went with my girlfriend after trying to search out new places in Egham, so happy to find bar 163, we arrived to find the place packed! Busy and lively full of people with wine and good food. Super smells wafting past us as we sat at the bar with our bottle of white - shall we eat here? - the decision took just seconds.
So glad we did, the staff were busy as bees but seemed thoroughly organised and still had time to chat and tell us a bit about the place. Good to know they are open with such long hours, might bring the laptop down there in the afternoon for a coffee - what a good place to get some work done.
Food was epic, I really value the chef who decides to put rabbit on the menu when it's not to everyone's taste, but this was really good, and balanced well with the veg.
We shall be returning for sure and looking forward to bringing some friends with us.
