• Tomorrow Byron on George Street is giving away 30 free B-Rex burgers to mark the launch of its nationwide ‘Roar Hide& Seek’ campaign.

Byron is giving lucky customers the opportunity to win a free B-Rex burger by hiding 30 T-Rex dinosaur figurines in close proximity to the Oxford restaurant for customers to find. Each dinosaur will have a tag attached to its neck entitling the recipient to redeem a free burger (includes B-Rex, C-Rex and V-Rex).

The Roar Hide & Seek campaign is taking place across February half-term in celebration of Byron bringing back its much-loved B-Rex burger collection featuring the iconic B-Rex (beef) and C-Rex (chicken) burgers and this year, a new vegetarian addition: the V-Rex.

Other menu additions include B-Rex loaded onion rings, the sumptuous brisket or veggie dip ‘n’ tip nachos. byronhamburgers.com
