The drive-thru sites were also operating limited hours, from 11am to 10pm.

McDonald’s has since announced that it will be trialing bringing back its breakfast menu at some sites on Wednesday, June 24, but has not yet confirmed which ones the trial will take place at.

Customers expecting a full breakfast menu offering are set to be disappointed – as it will also be reduced.

Manchester Evening News reports that Paul Pomroy, chief executive officer for McDonald's UK and Ireland, in an email to customers said: ‘As with our main menu, we will have a limited menu at breakfast but we’ve kept the classics – hash browns, McMuffins and pancakes all return.

‘Unfortunately, whilst adhering to social distancing guidelines, we are unable to serve porridge, bagels and our Breakfast Wrap.

‘This is because we have fewer people in the kitchen.’

Customers can also order food via McDelivery through the Uber Eats.
