All burgers can be veganized

Great selection of burgers! You can build your own or veganize any of the burgers on the menu. They had 2 options for patties: beyond burger meat and TiNDLE chicken. I went for the latter and it was just amazing 😍 Beers were okay, nothing special.

Pros: Vegan patty, Option to veganize any burger

Cons: Beers, Service was a little rushed

Good food, but no vegan beer?

Would have loved to have had a beer, but no expressly vegan options. Vegan burger and onion rings good.

Really good burgers

Had 2 fantastic burgers and chips from Byron burger. They can do every burger on the menu as a vegan version. The double cheeseburger was great, the patties were fantastic and even the bacon was nice. A bit on the pricey side at £45 (including tip added to the bill for my convenience) for 2 burgers 1 fries and 2 drinks but would go again for sure.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Fantastic burgers

Great vegan burgers

For 0,50£ more you can get the vegan version of each burger on the menu. Great burgers even though a bit overpriced.

Great shake, nice vegan burgers

The vegan burgers are Beyond Meat, and very tasty - but they are the kind of stunt burgers where too much (for my liking), is piled on.

The vegan salted caramel shakes are really really good.

Pros: The salted caramel shakes - OMG!, Beyond Meat burgers tasty

Cons: Serves meat, Overly stuffed burgers, Pricey

Not as good as expected

My husband loves vegan burgers, so when we came along Byron Burgers, it was a must. Unfortunately, we were a bit disappointed. The burgers were ok, but nowhere as good as expected from a dedicated burger restaurant. The atmosphere was a bit sterile, too.
If there were no other vegan options in the area this would be a good place, but in a city like Edinburgh we won‘t go there again.

Pros: Good location if you‘re staying in this part

Cons: Not many vegan burgers, Atmosphere not too cosy

Highstreet chain with vegan options

We had the Cali burger and fries. Nice burger but on the small side. Bottomless fries made up for it!

Good to have vegan options so can't complain! Staff were nice and friendly

Pros: 3 options , Friendly staff , Bottomless fries

Expensive for what you get; not too bad

Three may be harsh, but probably right. There’s three vegan burgers, the Cali and the Truffle are a plant based patty, and the Beetnik is a beetroot based falafel. The Truffle and Cali easily trump the cheaper Beetnik. All come with skin of fries, which were nice. Service was very friendly.

That’s the good stuff. The bad stuff is that the burgers are very small for the price. There’s limited choices, and there’s no vegan desserts. The alcohol is expensive for what it is.

Pros: Good tasting patty based burgers, Nice fries

Cons: Expensive for what you get, Limited options
