Great food and coffees, the service although great was stretched, I don’t like feeling sorry for the waiters, Probably was one off but definitely would not be back in the afternoon

This is a great place for lunch or evening, groups or as a couple. Food is freshly prepared and choices are different from the usual and therefore exciting. The wine selection is impressive. Always busy. Staff excellent. Highly recommend.

Sorry about the crush, not sure where you sat but generally there's plenty of space, some days get a bit hectic though. There is always the option to sit upstairs, which is certainly more spacious, will make sure this choice is always offered should anyone...More

This is a really nice find in the Egham High Street. It's a really cool little pub and restaurant. An awesome menu and very friendly staff. Had a great afternoon and will be back for more.

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

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.
