McDonald’s has reopened its restaurants for dine-in customers from today.

In a move which will also allow some restaurants to take part in the Chancellor’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme next month, the fast-food giant is back for all customers.

The chain reopened dining areas after a successful trial at four restaurant sites.

Around 700 restaurants across the UK, excluding Wales which has restricted eating in restaurants, are now open to customers and include table service.

McDonald’s has already reopened its sites across the UK for drive-thru and takeaway sales after they were temporarily shut in March.

Customers will be served their food at their table, with orders being taken through the McDonald’s app or at tills and kiosks.

In a statement, the company said: ‘Social distancing measures will be in place and, to prevent congestion, the restaurant will carefully manage the number of customers inside.

‘When arriving, customers will be asked to use the hand sanitiser provided and follow the safety measures laid out in restaurants to help keep them, other customers and restaurant teams safe.’

Customers who eat in will also be asked to leave their contact details by using their smartphone.

It added that the move will enable ‘some restaurants’ to take part in the Chancellor’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme, halving dine-in bills by up to £10 per person on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in August.

Last week, McDonald’s said it has also recommended that franchises cut the price of popular items and meal deals after the government slashed VAT on hot meals from 20% to 5% for the next six months.

There is 30p off the price of Happy Meals by 30p and 50p off breakfast meals, with cuts also recommended for Big Macs, Quarter Pounders, and McNuggets.

Anyone who’s been craving the stuff (us poor folks without a car), get in on it.
