Great atmosphere for a catch up with friends after leaving Leeds 15 years ago. Food lovely especially grilled chicken in gravy. All the party enjoyed their choices and staff helped with requests for tweaks to the menu! Cocktails and drinks range good too!

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 £6 for starters and main courses start at £12, 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 6 days: Tuesday to Thursday 4pm-10pm, Friday and Saturday 12pm-10pm and Sundays 12pm -8pm for a superb Sunday lunch!
