Food and service were good and as it was originally a wine bar only, it has retained some of it's charm

Bar 166 is now our favourite place to go. With or without kids!! Saturday afternoon, quiet. Food always to die for and the cocktails are too! Seem happy with kids toddling around. My daughter is 4, and has autism so struggles with different places, but she's so used to the place, feels comfortable so it rates very highly in our... More

Group of us visited for my nieces 18th birthday. They were fantastic, nothing was too much bother and the birthday girl received complementary Prosecco! Great selection of cocktails plus a great menu made this a great night.

Visited here on Tuesday for steak night, to celebrate a friend's birthday. The steak deal is excellent value- I had the 5oz rump for £10 (which included a small glass of wine) and upgraded for £3 to include onion rings, peppercorn sauce etc. I then had the sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Both dishes were delicious, the steak was cooked... More

Visited Horsforth for the first time and my daughter booked us in to Bar 166 for lunch. The only criteria for the rest of the party was a 'Roast'! I'm not a fan at all of this traditional dish. I ordered the chicken and bacon carbonara, which was excellent; but have to admit the 'Sunday dinners' looked really good, particularly... More

Just fab. Food and service both top rate. Horseradish sauce must be home made as I've never tasted any thing so fab. Well done.

Because we can't all be together as a family on Christmas day we decide to have a Christmas dinner a few days before the big day and chose Bar 166 as it's local and we've always had good food there. We booked some months ago to be sure as a family of 10 they could accommodate us in the restaurant.... More

The staff were very friendly and the meals were good. My only suggestion would be to have more pasta dishes with tomato sauce on the menu.

I've visited Bar 166 before for food but I had to review again for their Sunday carvery! I'm not a big carvery fan but I think this was the best carvery I've ever had! Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Description
Bar 166 opened in Horsforth in December 2004 as a first time project for Matthew Jones, answering the prayers of Horsforth residents in dire need of an upmarket, multi-purpose venue to eat and drink in.The food is fantastic in its simplicity, offering luscious British meals, all at very affordable prices. 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. Saturdays and Sundays, all day from 12pm.Bar open all day from 12pm, 7 days a week.
