When is the breakfast menu coming back?

Paul Pomroy, chief executive of McDonald’s UK and Ireland, said: “We are working hard behind the scenes to open for longer and offer more services.

“I hope that within a few weeks we will be able to start trialling a breakfast service.”

However, Pomroy warned that the new items will only be introduced when it is safe to do so, so there has not been any specific date revealed for when you can enjoy a McDonald’s breakfast again.

Similarly, no specific locations have been revealed to be part of the breakfast trial either.

He said: “Please continue to bear with us. Employee safety remains my top priority and we will only move forward with new services and menu items when we’re confident we can do so whilst still enabling a safe working environment.”

What’s on the reduced menu?

McDonald’s has reopened nearly all of its drive-thru services and plans on launching its McDelivery service at 500 restaurants across the UK.

To adjust to working around smaller teams of staff and safety measures, the fast food chain is operating with a reduced menu.

The reduced menu items currently include:

  • Big Mac
  • Quarter pounder with cheese
  • McChicken sandwich
  • Vegetable deluxe
  • Hamburger
  • Cheeseburger
  • Double cheeseburger
  • Chicken McNuggets
  • Chicken selects
  • 20 chicken McNuggets sharebox
  • Filet-o-fish
  • Fries
  • Mozzarella dippers
  • Veggie dippers (four pieces)
  • Happy Meal veggie dippers (two pieces)

Also included on the menu are various McFlurry flavours, soft drinks and coffees.
