Byron, Westfield, an at times unconvincing chain

It was Friday and we had tickets for the Wonderstuff at the Shepherds Bush Empire so we decided grab a pre-gig bite at the Westfield. I'd heard good things about Byron including Giles Coren's best burger ever boast so I steered Big matt and wee Gordon upstairs to the balcony area.

The restaurant wasn't massively busy but was nicely spread out, we opted for a booth. We had a quick scan of the menu and went for cheeseburgers, side of fries and onion rings to share and washed down with a spellbinding 660ml Peroni! The burgers came pretty quickly and though tasty I thought they were a bit small. This wasn't the definitive burger I had been promised. The ones at "ground" were better value and the "Sophies Steakhouse" black Angus version was a lot better. Sides were good, cooked in clean fresh oil. One aspect that did annoy me though was being charge £1.40 for a squirt of barbecue sauce. Totally over the top especially when at McDonalds you would get that free. Service was pretty good and the open kitchen is a nice touch. I wouldn't rush back but nice to know "Byron" is there if I fancy a small tasty burger.

As you will see later Byron branches vary in quality, this one is middling
