Byron Burger, Newcastle

Byron Burger, Newcastle

One thing that has always bothered me until very recently was the North East dining scene. Yes we do independent and awesome and we do it VERY well, but for the longest of time, hip and trendy ‘London’ based brands and chains wouldn’t set foot up North. This has changed and it has changed for the better now that Byron Burger has landed.

Byron has landed on Grey Street in a prime location right next to the MonumentĀ and most importantly – the giant screen showing the Rugby World Cup!

Byron Burger comes to Newcastle

It has been rumour and here say for a little while now about the upcoming arrival of the burger giant Byron Burger but as a planning permission has been submitted and confirmed by the big-wigs, it is safe to say it is on it’s way!!

Byron will be calling Grey Street home, taking over the old H&M store (also previously Waterstones) which will see them with a prime spot at the head of the street ready to compete with The Botanist and Jamie’s

Since 2007, Tom Byng has been cultivating and expanding his empire which now sees 37 London restaurants as well as a further 12 across the country with new ones due to open. My personal favourite is the Canary Wharf restaurant as the whole area feels pleasantly deserted on a weekend – a rarity for London!

What this means for other local burger ventures, I don’t know, but it is nice to see Newcastle and the Northeast being considered viable locations for the southern-centric chains we are attracting.

I will bring you more details as soon as I have them!
