We visited with family over the weekend. The 163 has a lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff. The food was beautiful and we will return soon with friends. Highly recommend a visit.

We chose Bar 163 for a very special celebration. 50 years of being a couple! We were not disappointed. Bar 163 delivered on every level. Excellent food in taste, texture, flavour and portion size. Excellent service with warmth and a smile from the Ladies in...front of house. A good selection of wines. Although the restaurant wasn't busy there was still a buzz about the place.More

The food here is absolutely incredible. The staff are always so welcoming and can’t do enough for you. During my last visit I ordered the roasted cod with mussels & curry sauce, beer battered potatoes and samphire…..so many flavours that worked so well together….this one...particular meal was honestly one of the meals I have ever had in my life! Have visited here multiple times in the last couple of months and will continue to do so. Bar 163 is a hidden gem. Love it here.More

After finding out Dave Wells was the chef I decided to book Bar163 for our anniversary dinner as we both love Masterchef. All I can say is we were not disappointed. From start to finish the evening was wonderful. The front of house team were...charming, charismatic and always on hand to answer any questions. The food was superb, the wine delicious and meeting Dave was the icing on the cake. I honestly couldn’t fault a thing! We can’t wait to come back to try more! Thank you for making everything so perfect!More

Smaller menu, higher prices. I’ve been eating here for more years than I can remember. I have never been disappointed with the choices and the prices. But I was this visit… £28 for a very small loin of beef, unexciting and small. The garnish was...lovely, the sweet potato fries were good. But felt hard done but for the portion/ price.More

We have held back a little on the menu size just while we get things moving again, but with trade being quite erratic at the moment, a larger menu can result in a great deal of waste, which then leads to a less viable business,...More

Had to post a big thank you to Dave Wells and the team at 163 for making a night out with a close friend whose been going through some tough stuff, a night she says she won’t forget in a long time. It was great...to see the place really buzzing. We had the eight course tasting menu and were literally lost for words at the tastes and sensations in every course. The outstanding quality of each dish was matched by the friendly attentiveness of the very professional service on a very busy Saturday night. 163 is building something very special and it was lovely to experience it. Thanks again.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
