In addition, some restaurants will take part in Rishi Sunak’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme – meaning customers will get 50 per cent off their bill, up to £10 per person.

In line with government guidance, McDonald’s will ask customers that choose to eat-in to leave their contact details via a website.

Diners will by able to use their smart phone visit the webpage directly, or they’ll be able to scan a QR code to take them to the website.

They’ll then be asked to leave the name of the lead member and the number of people within their group, a phone number, the date and time of visit and the restaurant number.

It comes as McDonald’s prepares to reopen around 700 restaurants for dine-in customers tomorrow, July 22, following a successful trial.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson gave the go-ahead for businesses including restaurants and pubs to reopen from July 4.

But McDonald’s decided not to reopen for dine-in on this date, saying it  “wasn’t ready”.

Instead, Maccies reopened just four branches for eat-in on July 15 across the UK and Ireland.

McDonald’s shut all of its 1,350 restaurants across the UK in March amid the coronavirus lockdown.
