  • Service was spot-on. Good range and quality of drinks. Menu was very quirky. A few 'unexplained definitions, but otherwise plenty of choice. If you love your Mac n cheese American style this is right up your street. If not, ask for cheddar, they're happy to oblige. Burger cooked to perfection. Moist and heavy. Maybe a glossary on the wall would help with the menu, otherwise brilliant...
  • High quality food. The burger cooked to perfection, extremely flavourful. Might be a little pricey, but it's worth every penny. I would highly recommend this place ✔️
  • I've been to a number of gourmet Burger places, and Byron really does rank as one of the best! With friendly greeting and table service from staff, we ordered a delicious thick milkshake each. For our Burgers, the staff were happy to make customisations as requested. The burgers and sides we had were FANTASTIC. Really tasty! By the end of our lunch we were comfortably full and very happy. Cost-wise, we paid £50+ for 3 people for burgers, shakes and side orders. Highly recommended. We'll be visiting again!
  • Following advice, I can confirm i was not dissapointed by Byron. The food was both tasty and the burger succulent, the menu did not disappoint. But most of all the staff went above and beyond to offer the best service and nothing was of trouble at all.
  • Korean inspired fries and a chilli burger with extra chipotle mayo was a fiery experience. Outstanding food.
