McDonald's is set to restart indoor dining with TABLE SERVICE in England and Wales next week 

McDonald's restaurants across England and Wales are set to reopen next week, but the chain will only be accepting table service.    

From 17th May, people will be able to eat inside restaurants after months of closures due to lockdown.

While the fast food giant has been open for takeaway and delivery over the past year, the chain is now letting customers back into stores, after some branches opened for outdoor dining last month.

McDonald's is also encouraging customers to order through the app to stay as Covid-safe as possible, with those wanting to dine inside restaurants selecting the 'eat in' option when ordering from their phones.  

The chain has added numbers to all of its tables, which customers will need to add  with staff then bringing food to the table.

To make sure they comply with social distancing, the chain will have less seats than usual.

McDonald's is currently open for outdoor dining for up to six customers at restaurants that have available outdoor seating – exclusively for those ordering via the My McDonald's App. 

From 17th May, people will be able to eat inside restaurants after months of closures due to lockdown.

It comes after  McDonald's delighted fans by announcing the return of their Bacon Clubhouse Double and the Chicken Deluxe for their summer menu.

The £4.79 Bacon Clubhouse Double Burger is 667 calories and is made from two 100 per cent beef patties, two rashers of Beechwood smoked bacon, a slice of cheddar cheese, onions, tomato, lettuce and Special Sauce in a golden brioche bun. 

For those who prefer chicken, the fast food giant has also brought back the Chicken Deluxe  burger for £4.39.

Made of two crunchy Chicken Selects layered with smooth Emmental cheese, lettuce, and red onions, it's topped with a zesty tomato relish and cool mayo.

Other classic faves recently returned are those little balls of joy - Cheese and Herb Melts (£1.89) served with a rich tomato dip and the Galaxy Chocolate McFlurry and the Galaxy Caramel McFlurry (£1.39) – back by popular demand. 

The ultimate chocolatey dessert made from soft dairy ice cream, swirled with Galaxy chocolate pieces and either a chocolate or smooth caramel sauce. Both available as a Mini McFlurry (£0.99).
