We visited Byron Burgers a couple of years ago when it first opened in Princesshay. It was quite delightful; the burgers were meaty and the beer was crafty & beery.
Byron Burgers is a name that many burger fans will recognise instantly as being a name synonymous with gourmet burgers and that subtle Americana.
It was started in 2007 by Tom Bing and has grown exponentially ever since. In 2007, Princesshay itself was built too… fancy that!
It was an enjoyable evening but we hadn’t been back since. We were recently invited to give Bryon Burgers another go as part of the Princesshay’s Summer Eats promotion which is worth checking out.
One of the things that I admire about Byron Burgers particularly is the interior. Big windows give diners a vista across a busy precinct, perfect for people watching and ensuring lots of natural light in to the restaurant.
The first thing I did when we sat down at our window seat was to order a Brooklyn Beer. With the subtle Americana theme, comes the urge to fully embrace the USA-ness of Byron. I’d had this hankering for some sort of American lagery beer thing, so this was a perfect choice.
Tori went for a Coke (we’ll let her off as she wasn’t feeling up to scratch that evening). A quick perusal of the menu shows an attractive offering for burger lovers.
We both went for The Cheese which is Byron’s ‘better-than-standard’ cheesy offering.
Byron Cheese, shredded iceberg, pickles, onion, American Mustard and Byron sauce combined with sides of Bacon and Cheese Fries and Sweet Potato Fries were a perfect set of foods.
We really enjoyed the meal and would recommend The Cheese as a burger worth going for with its Bryon Cheese and in-house sauce making up a big part of the flavour.
Byron Burgers is still a firm favourite of Exeter’s diners, and despite the competition from other burger chains is still as popular as ever. For a subtle dose of Americana and a chance to win a prize by spotting all of the cows in the restaurant, pop down next time you have that burger urge!
