We were heading to the theatre and decided to get to Oxford early to find somewhere to eat, only problem, Saturday night without a booking. A big ask!! The only place that would happily squeeze us in immediately without a wait was Byron. A table for 7, they told us we could have the table for 1hr 15min. This was... More

I am not a burger person but I make an exception for a place like this. The burgers were not the standard mass produced variety and were sourced from Scottish beef. A far cry from McDonalds and well worth a visit. Could actually savour the meat. Very tasty.

I always enjoy a good American style diner....so was delighted when we came across Byron in the centre of Oxford. I had the 'Merry Cheesemas' and wow! It was delicious! The portions are generous, and I would suggest one portion of chips would serve 2. It cost around £30 for 2 of us, so a bit of a treat, but... More

We visited here for a quick bite to eat on a Friday night out. The place was packed and we got a nice booth in the front of the restaurant and as I am expecting it helped to have a nice comfy seat! Our waitress was a lovely, smiley, friendly Irish girl who recommended the Byron burger and we were... More

We had lunch here and were looking for a place that did good burgers and we certainly picked well. The menu is extensive and affordable. The service is fairly prompt although occasionally you do have to grab someone's attention as the place get very busy. The waiters are really friendly; one even suggested a few sights for us to visit... More

We had booked Sunday Lunch at the Randolph but my daughter spotted Byron Oxford on the way into the City and this choice won after our visits to many of the chain restaurants in London. We were not disappointed, efficient service, tasty good quality Burgers and a lively buzz. We all enjoyed the experience and had plenty of time to... More

I had heard so many good things, and so we went there for my birthday lunch. Burger was average and expensive. We were there at opening, so I was surprised the burger wasn't piping hot and the bun, though it had at one time been toasted on the grill, was cold. The A&W root beer, however, was super, as we're... More

Went here for dinner last night with my housemate, managed to get seats despite no reservations. As soon as we sat down, a waitress offered to bring us a jug of water while we went through the menu. 2 minutes later she was back with the water and we were ready to order (the menu is fairly limited so doesn't...
