As a result, hospitality businesses including restaurants, pubs and cafes will have to shut until December 2.

But our favourite chains will still be able to operate for takeaways.

That includes McDonald’s, which has confirmed that it’s Drive Thrus and deliveries will stay open for business.

That means you can still get your hands on favourites including Quarterpounders with cheese, Big Macs and chicken nuggets.

You can check which restaurants have Drive Thru available, by using the restaurant locator tool.

You can order delivery through the Uber Eats or Just Eat apps.

Boris Johnson is putting England back into lockdown from November 5

A spokesperson for McDonald’s said: “Following last night’s announcement of a new four week lockdown in England, we have confirmed that our Drive-Thru, takeaway and delivery services can remain open. 

“Our dine-in areas will be closed during this period starting on November 5. 

“We will continue to follow the guidance and regulations as set out by public health and government authorities and will confirm any changes to our services to our employees first and then our customers.”

During the last lockdown, fans went wild for McDonald’s Drive Thru with mile-long queues at some locations.

Some super fans even ended up camping overnight to make sure they beat the queues.

Now, the chain is urging customers to pre-order on the McDonald’s app, to help bring the wait at Drive-Thrus down.

In the last lockdown, McDonald’s reduced its menu for customers using takeaway or delivery.

HOAR has asked whether menu restrictions will be in place and will update this article when we know more.
