Went there in Occasion of my journey to Oxford to Attend an International Law Competition at the university and we arrived on Campus very late since we were heading there from London. Byron was one of the few restaurant opened in Oxford on a sunday evening. It was a very fortunate discovery. I Had the most amazing mushroom salad with an homemade creamy dressing, tomatoes and mixed greens as well as a veggie burger. My friends also ordered some regular burgers with mature cheddar cheese and a lamb burger both the variants were amazing. The servers were also very welcoming and kind despite the fact it was almost the time the restaurant was about to close and prep for the next day. Nice selection of beers and beverages for a franchising company which has multiple location across the United Kingdom I Believe

I Highly recommend this place!

“No ordinary burger bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Great quality beef (also chicken and veggie) burgers.
Happy helpful staff, from arrival to departure.
Had the monthly special, Miami Spice. It is nicely spicy without being overly spicy.
Sides are extra so don't expect fries with your burger. Sometimes just a burger is all you need especially if it is a really good one.
Great atmosphere for a late lunch.
Great wines, good, better and best makes things easier.
Will go back again.

Thank Alan B

“Overrated but great customer service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

My and my boyfriend went to Byron on the evening of 22.05.2014, we were seated straight away, the waiter was lovely and drinks arrived quick.
I ordered the new Miami Slice burger, sounded amazing but when it came it was dry and the amazing combination of toppings didn't go well together. It had shredded potato chips in it which at the time looking at the menu sounded nice but really didn't work. The courgette fries were amazing as usual. My boyfriend didn't like his burger and the fries were ok. I had the caramel & honeycomb sundae which was really nice but was basically ice cream with a crumbled Crunchie bar (not all of the bar but like third of it!). All in all its over priced and your better off going to a Maccy D for a full and cheaper meal. The staff is fab but food not so much.

“Decent burger, pricey but basic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Popped in Byron given the good reputation it has. We were in and out within half an hour service was quick and decent. The burgers themselves are very simple, they are just presented on a plate with some baking paper and a bit of gherkin. The meat is of good quality but the burgers have minimal toppings unless you have the special. The vegetarian option was OK, but please have something different than mushroom, it's so many restaurant's default veggie option! Overall I would prefer GBK or Handmade burger company.

“Food ok - but service terrible”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

Our experience here was marred by the lack of attention from the waitress. We sat and waited for menu's for what seemed like ages. The chips didn't arrive until we asked for them. On top of that - mid mouthful the waitress leaned across from my left to grab an empty glass on my right - I hate that! The burger was good - but the look is extremely basic - just a bun and burger on a piece of paper on a board - no healthy stuff next to it...
