A lovely place for a leisurely Saturday morning breakfast with a great choice of dishes... the mushroom side can't be missed!! Sadly as a non meat eater the non breakfast choices are extremely limited. For example... If you want a quick lunchtime bite rather than...More

The roast chicken for two is terrific with roast potatoes, carrots, and fantastic risotto and ratatouille. A nice modern twist on this classic. Great for the family too - our boys particularly liked the New York Club sandwich with fries. The lemon presse drink is...More

I loathe the Bar 163. What should otherwise be the best spot for coffee, food, and drink in Egham is completely ruined by the customer service and unfriendly, rude staff.More

What an outrageous claim, what on earth is this based upon? I think you'll generally find little but praise for the staff in most other review's, so it's highly unlikely that your comment reflects the day to day reality, what could possibly have gone so...More

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.
