Really tasty. Everything about our meal at Byron was good - the atmosphere, service, staff and food all great. When I next go to Oxford I will definitely be going again.

We arrived when there was very few people in the restaurant yet our food did take a fair while to arrive. We all ordered Byron burgers with the 'special' Byron sauce. I can't say that the sauce was anything spectacular and we only were given a small amount on our burgers so we could barely taste it. In the end... More

Cup final day, leaving a nearby pub after watching the game we arrived to sample the infamous Byron Burger and were not disappointed at all. Service was good of this busy estabilshment and the menu had some varieties from the norm. We opted for a Byron burger and a Miami slice, one of the specials. Both were very tasty and... More

We ate here for lunch. I had the special - The Miami Slice which was inventive and tasted fantastic. The burgers were cooked perfectly and the milkshakes were incredible. The service was good and the staff members were friendly. Great for a quick bite.

The burgers are delicious, cooked medium rare, of really good quality. The milkshakes are heaven, definitely worth ordering - which makes up for the lack of good desserts. Miniature cows hidden all over the restaurant adds a little interest and helps keep children entertained.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
