Bank holiday Monday saw Byron bring ‘proper hamburgers’ to Derby as they opened at the intu Derby centre on 25th May.
Byron serve hamburgers the way they should be: Scottish beef, ground fresh, cooked pink and served in a squishy bun with a craft beer.
To celebrate the restaurant’s opening day, members of the Byron Burger Club in Derby were invited along for a hamburger on the house. They were also be treated to craft beer sampling from Byron’s drinks list, thanks to Byron’s brewing partners Camden Town Brewery.
The team at Camden have worked with Byron’s founder Tom Byng and the restaurant teams to create Byron’s very own Pale Ale and Lager, and were on hand to help diners pair a carefully selected craft beer with their hamburger.

Specialising in ‘proper hamburgers’, Byron was founded by Tom Byng in 2007, with the first Byron opening on Kensington High Street in 2007.
During a four-year stint in America, Tom ate enough hamburgers to sink the Titanic. His favourite diner was the Silver Top in downtown Providence, Rhode Island. The hamburgers were simple, tasty things – a bit messy, but made with good quality meat and only classic adornments: some lettuce, tomato, red onion, and maybe a slice of cheese or bacon. Back in London, Tom realised there weren’t any restaurants offering hamburgers like those at the Silver Top. And so the idea for Byron was born. Now with 50 restaurants, from London to Bristol, Exeter to Liverpool, the vision remains the same: to keep serving proper hamburgers the way they should be.
Byron’s short and simple menu includes the Classic, Cheese, and signature Byron burgers, plus a regularly changing special. A selection of ‘Classic Specials’ sees some of the best-loved of these return to the menu for good. The drinks list features craft beers from some of the world’s best breweries, canned for freshness and flavour and served in a frosted glass straight from the freezer.
As well as proper hamburgers, Byron’s menu also features classic sides such as French fries, onion rings, and macaroni cheese. Desserts include caramel and honeycomb sundae, banoffee mess and chocolate brownie, while hard shakes and milkshakes come in strawberry, chocolate, vanilla and Oreo cookie flavours. Classic sodas, floats and a selection of Kentucky bourbons are also available.
