  • Grey street is one street where the old isn’t spoiled by the new. The theatre Royal is at the top of this street along with Greys Monument. The architecture is so apparent, it is a hilly street but lo...  more »
  • What can I say - it's a pretty street but would I consider it an activity in it's own right - not really. On most trips to Newcastle you will pass through and that's great but make a special trip to s...  more »

  • Well it sells burgers basically the same as Burger King. It's trying to be a restaurant but inside it looks more cafe like, and the experience is of a chain cafe. However it's charging restaurant prices for basic food. I'm quite happy to try new things... now I've tried it. On the plus side it was clean and tidy and the staff were fine, but whoever decided to try and move McDonald's and burgers upmarket made a strange decision to me. A burger can never be more than a burger.
  • Good quality burgers as you would expect from Byron, I come here semi regularly although I have only gotten food to take away. Always happy with the quality and the sweet potato fries are really good too. In terms of price I think it's okay value, there are better burgers in London for the price, but it's certainly not a bad option and the quality is usually consistent
  • Burgers are cooked medium and I never for one minute thought that would make a difference. However the burgers here are great, definitely worth a try. Service is average but you do get staff who go out of their way to make you feel welcome and such people always deserve praise, drinks a bit overpriced however. Certainly a good dining out experience. You have the try the Byron. Best burger there. For two you can expect to pay £30 or more. This is a favourite place of mine however for burgers. In my opinion tops five guys.
  • servjce was good and portion sizes of the sides are large but the burger is totally overpriced. £10 for a burger- the meat wasn’t tender or juicy. I did choose to get mine well done but I won’t accept that as a reason it was dry as I’ve had so many burgers in restaurants where it’s standard to not have any pink in the meat and they have been way tastier. Way better burgers to be had in the city
  • Nice place bit quirky. Food lovely but overpriced. Frozen fries for gods sake! Place was pretty empty so im guessing people are cottoning on its hefty prices. I would go again however. Theyll never compete in taste to 5 guys!
