My husband and I came here on the recommendation of a friend. The service was very attentive, and we were made to feel welcomed by all of the staff. I had a cocktail which was delicious and nicely presented. The food came very quickly, and tasted delicious. It's nice to go somewhere where the food is clearly prepared and cooked... More

The service was quick and staff were friendly and helpful. I ordered a classic 6oz beef burger and chips. The food was tasty, however what I would say is the burger was very difficult to eat, probably because they didn't put a skewer in it, so it was all falling apart. I actually had to eat it with a knife... More

I've always walked past Bar 166 thinking it was more of a pub but I will eat there again. The atmosphere was great, the waitress was friendly and the food was good value for money. My only suggestion would be a couple more vegetarian mains, although what they have is nicely original.

We visited for dinner on the evening of Good Friday. Truly excellent food. The deep fried Brie for starters was the size of a cheesecake slice and utterly delicious (the halloumi starter was fine, but disappointingly small in comparison). Really enjoyed big portions of fish and chips and the unusual but very nice ginger and pear Eton Mess. One star... More

We were here for Mother's Day, Sunday Lunch. The restaurant wasn't that busy to start with so we were surprised that the service was a little slow to start with. However, the food was excellent. The Sunday roast option was huge - we tried the pork and turkey and both were excellent. I had the boeuf bourguignon which was so... More

What is really nice is that 2 ordered medium rare and 2 ordered medium cooked steak and that is exactly what... More

The evening bistro menu is priced at £5.50 for starters and main courses start at £11, a bargain considering the quality and freshness.The bar is lively and welcoming with an exceptional drinks array. On a weekend the bar plays a wide range of funky, soulful music, culminating in an electric atmosphere.Food served 7 days:Monday to Friday, 12-3pm and 5.30pm-close.
