Byron to open new restaurant after five years

The chain’s upcoming store will be in the London Designer Outlet in Wembley.

For the first time in five years, Byron will be opening its first new restaurant.

The chain’s upcoming store will be in the London Designer Outlet in Wembley and will open its doors on 27 May as part of the company’s re-growth plan.

The restaurant group also created a ‘Freedom Burger’, made with Monterey Jack cheese, Byron’s new special slaw, pickles, horseradish mayo and crispy onions, to welcome customer back to its restaurants.

“We’ve got a lot to celebrate at Byron this month. Not only are we marking the return of indoor dining with the limited-edition Freedom Burger, but we’re re-opening the doors of our central London restaurants in Covent Garden and Central St Giles, as well as opening the first brand-new Byron restaurant for five years in Wembley,” CEO Simon Wilkinson said.

Byron is also hosting a Free Burger Day at its Covent Garden restaurant on 21 May to commemorate its return to indoor dining.
