Byron is already open! And we’ve got a review up too! Read it here
This June, Byron bring proper hamburgers to Exeter with the opening of a restaurant in Princesshay.
Byron’s short and simple menu focuses on hamburgers the way they should be: patties made with Scottish beef, cooked medium and served in a soft, squishy bun with minimum fuss. There are just four variations on offer, plus a regularly-changing special: Classic, Cheese, Chilli, and the signature Byron, with cheese, bacon and Byron sauce.
The menu also features sides such as French fries, onion rings, macaroni cheese and Caesar salad. Desserts include cheesecake, sundaes and chocolate brownies, and milkshakes come in strawberry, chocolate, vanilla and Oreo cookie flavours. The drinks menu features classic sodas, root beer, Kentucky bourbons, and beers from Byron’s regularly updated list, which includes their own Byron Pale Ale and Byron Lager, brewed in partnership with Camden Town Brewery.
The restaurant will be bright, airy and modern, with yellow and white accents throughout. The yellow tiled open kitchen and bar will provide a focal point, complemented by neon signage, timber and concrete flooring, and a mixture of vintage and contemporary furniture and fittings.
Byron Hamburgers was started in 2007 by Tom Byng after a a four year stint in the States. Realising that there was simply nowhere that served burgers like they did over there in London, he filled the niche and Byron Hamburgers was the result. First opening in Kensington High St, numerous Byron Burger joints have appeared and now Exeter is the latest addition.
Tom’s favourite diner was The Silver Top in downtown Providence, Rhode Island. The hamburgers were simple, tasty things – a bit messy, but made with good quality meat and only classic adornments: some lettuce, tomato, red onion, and maybe a slice of cheese or bacon.
Byron have a few restaurants now but their vision remains the same: to keep serving proper hamburgers the way they should be.
