We have been 4 times here now for Sunday lunch but unfortunately last time today. When we arrived the table next to us were complaining about the stringy beef. We tried the pork meals and it was dreadful this time. Veg tasted microwave or cooked yesterday / last week. When my other half complained they were told they will tell... More

I have been to this restaurant a number of times now, mostly on their Steak night on Tuesdays. Such good value for money! I upgrade to a bigger steak, chips, onion rings, tomato and peppercorn sauce with a glass of wine all for £20 and each time the steak has been cooked perfectly! It also has a nice atmosphere inside... More

Ate here today with a friend. We used to come quite regularly about five years ago so we wondered if things had changed after such a long absence. There was only one other table occupied which meant there was not much atmosphere, however the waiter was very efficient, attentive and polite. We just had a main course each, both of... More

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

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.
