The changes come as part of new lockdown curfew rules which mean that people are not allowed to dine-in after 10pm.

McDonald's is limiting its opening hours for dine-in customers, but it will continue to offer delivery and drive-thru services around the clock at many of its restaurants.

Because of the enhanced safety measures, McDonald's will operate as follows:


- Between 5am and 10pm, customers can still visit the restaurant for takeaway, dine-in, Drive-thru and order McDelivery through Uber Eats and Just Eat at participating locations

- Dine-in customers will continue to be served by table service, with numbers inside the restaurant carefully managed to ensure social distancing is maintained

- Posters displayed at every restaurant will enable you to register your visit and check-in via the NHS Test and Trace App

- Face coverings will continue to be required for employees and customers, except while seated in the dining area

- After 10pm, the drive-thru lanes will remain open and McDelivery will continue to be available via Uber Eats and Just Eat at participating locations.

In an email to customers Paul Pomroy, McDonald's UK and Ireland chief executive officer, said: "We know the new measures introduced by us or the health authorities take some adjusting to, I am very grateful for the support and patience you have shown as we’ve implemented these changes.

"From screens in service areas, dining rooms, and the kitchen, to face coverings, visors and hand sanitising, you have helped us adapt to new ways of working, with smaller teams serving a reduced menu and I thank you for your ongoing support and adherence to these processes.

"We are all getting more familiar with technology helping us to navigate this new normal. The My McDonald’s app is no exception, providing contact-free ordering for dine-in, Drive-thru and takeaway, keeping you up to date with the latest opening hours, menu additions and offers.

"We will continue to offer all new users a free McCafé® coffee as you adjust to ordering your McDonald’s favourites from your phone. For those customers choosing to dine-in, you can still order from the self-order kiosks or tills, and contact-free from your table using the app.

"This is not how I expected us to be entering the autumn and winter in our restaurants but your support has meant we’ve been able to protect jobs and to continue serving the communities in which we operate."
