I love Byron. But my nearest Byron is 50 mins away so whenever we see a Byron it is always a treat! We’ve managed to visit tow different Byrons in the last few weeks. One in Camberley and one in Shoreditch.
Camberley has changed a hell of a lot since my last visit. A lot more modern then before and plenty of places to eat. I’d done my research so knew that there was a Byron (The Atrium, Park Street, Camberley)! What we hadn’t thought of was booking a table and on a very busy Friday night we ended up having to wait half an hour for a table . As always it was worth it!
The Gin Whisperer hates gherkins so I always get two! I went for the Run Rarebit Run, one of the specials with Cheddar rarebit, bacon, English mustard Mayo, pickled cucumber and lettuce. It was delicious, if a little messy! I had some of their delicious Mac & Cheese to go with it! I can’t get enough of the stuff.
The following week we were invited to the UK opening of Kit & Ace, a Canadian brand producing technical cashmere. Whilst their canapés and copious amounts of espresso martinis were delicious we were both craving a burger and luckily there was another Byron around the corner inShoreditch (34 Bethnal Green Road, Shoreditch).
This time I went for the Double Bacon Cheese, two 6oz burgers, bacon, Freddar™cheese, pickles, ketchup and American mustard. Again accompanied with Mac & Cheese! Again delicious! But I was beaten by the giant burger, either that or all the espresso martinis I’d had!
I’ve on,y ever been a little disappointed with Bryon twice and I’ve been numerous times. I find the courgette fries far too soggy so I just don’t order them anymore, and I ordered a medium rare Holy Cheesemas in York last Christmas which came pretty much well done. But apart from that there is nothing I don’t love about this chain. Well apart from the fact that there isn’t one a lot closer to my house! Now a Byron in Banbury would be amazing , hint hint!
