The chain confirmed the opening of more than 30 restaurants for drive thru last week and confirmed that customers would notice several changes when visiting such as a spending limit of £25 per car.

As there will be smaller teams working in the restaurants to adhere to social distancing measures, service is expected to be slower and queues are likely.

"The wellbeing of our employees, suppliers and delivery partners’ couriers is my top priority and we will only extend our plans at a pace that enables us to create a safe working environment for our teams.

"In line with government guidance, next week we will begin the next phase of reopening a further 30 pilot restaurants in the UK and Ireland, offering service through the Drive-Thru lane from Wednesday 20th May.

"Moving in step with government guidelines, we plan to reopen all our Drive-Thrus by early June."
