© Ben Rowe Byron burger & fries

An upmarket burger chain with more than 20 branches in London, Byron has found success by paying attention to all areas of its operation. The spaces are clean, light and attractive; staff are welcoming and good with kids.

The menu has burgers centre stage (including chicken and vegetarian choices) and all come with lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickle and mayo. Further toppings include bacon, avocado, roasted red pepper, portobello mushroom, jalapeño and various cheeses (such as monterey jack). For sauces, choose from chilli, spicy barbecue, aïoli, tomato mayonnaise, blue cheese or Byron’s own. The only other main-course options are salads (cobb and caesar among them). Quality is good, and service generally speedy.

A similarly well-considered drinks list runs from apple juice and Oreo cookie milkshake to wine; beers (from small breweries) include a Byron pale ale, from Camden Town Brewery.

Well. I'm in two minds about Byron in Kensington. I've been twice now, both on the way to Chelsea matches. Both times, they have spilt an entire bottle of beer on my lap, leaving me cold, smelly and angry. On the second time, the girl even had the audacity to tell me to not shout, when all I said was 'oh for god sake - again???'. So I would say the service this is absolutely terrible - very poor. They should've offered to dry clean my smelly beer jeans, and £10 voucher for this happening twice is a pretty poor gesture.

The burgers are nice. It's expensive for what it is.

Just a burger joint, nothing more nothing less. Confused by high rating, no offense but nothing special except higher caliber fast food....
