I'm really pleased that it all went so well, I know the restaurant was also full downstairs on that nigh, so all credit to the team for keeping it together, also a big thanks to you for coming, and for the fantastic review. Happy Birthday.

I just cannot deny the appeal of this coffee shop come restaurant. It is my default location for before/during/after shopping and also just as a break from other activities. The ambience ( too pompous ? ) keeps drawing me back.More

They have Peroni, candles and a wonderful ambience but the service is never that amazing and the prices are on par with London! They are not very family friendly (babies and buggies). Could be amazing. Aquolina has got it right.More

Pleased that you like some of what we do, not sure about your comparison to London prices though, the average price of a main course is £13.65 with several under £11.00, so not sure there are many independent London restaurants offering that level of value....More

Very good service, excellent quality food. And above all fantastic ambiance. We had a variety of dishes and everyone enjoyed the meals. The bill for 4 adults and 2 children was good value in consideration of the quality and service.More

Hi Heather, I can recall exactly what was on the menu but what I will say is they use fresh produce and make everything themselves. I'm sure if you asked for things to be cooked a certain way or not to include/trade some... 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.
