McDonald’s to reopen dine-in areas in England and Wales restaurants next Monday

Fast food giant McDonald's has announced that all customers in England and Wales will be able to eat-in again.

The company said that customers will be able to enjoy their favourite meals at the restaurant from May 17 (next Monday).

With table service and app ordering encouraged, customers can order and eat their familiar favourites without leaving their table.

Paul Pomroy, McDonald's UK and Ireland CEO, said: "We are delighted to be re-opening our dine-in areas.

"Monday is another big step forward for both England and Wales, and we'll be thrilled to see our customers dining-in and enjoying their meals with us – we know they have been eagerly waiting to get back.

"As the country starts to open back up more fully – so are we."

As with every stage of re-opening, safety has been at the forefront of decision making for McDonald's.

Customers are being welcomed back to dine in but with safety measures.

McDonald's is asking all customers to check the website before they travel for that long-awaited dine-in experience.

The CEO added: "We have not had people dining-in for several months, so while we know our restaurant teams are incredibly excited to welcome customers back to our dine-in areas, we also want to give them time to adjust to the enhanced safety measures and procedures in place that will help protect our customers and our people."

Restaurants will reopen with table service only, and in some cases limited seating, to accommodate social distancing.

The fast food giant is strongly encouraging customers to order via the My McDonald's App where possible, meaning customers can order from their table and have their food brought to them.

All customers will be asked to wear a face covering when entering the restaurant, unless they are exempt.

With the re-opening plans in place, the business will turn its attention to the next phase of a return to the full McDonald's experience.

A limited menu has meant customers across the country have been sorely missing some of their favourites, and expanding the menu as well as extending opening hours are both on the agenda for the coming months.

McDonald's in England and Wales will be following Scottish restaurants in allowing dine-in, and restaurants in Northern Ireland and Ireland will be following suit once regulations allow.
