We popped in to this Byron for a burger and shake before a show. We ordered the Byron burger each with fries, onion rings and 2 shakes. Requested the relish to be put as a side serving rather than in the burger and was surprised my request was met. Great meal and enjoyed by both of us. The service was... More

Told on arrival there would be a 15 to 20 minute wait but we were seated in 5 minutes so that was a bonus . Order was taken quickly and the food / drinks were good and served by friendly and efficient staff. Nice and close to the Dominion Theatre too.
