McDonald’s reopens another 497 drive-thrus from today

Amazing news!!

McDonald’s has been reopening hundreds of drive-thrus for delivery this week and a load more have opened in Greater Manchester.

Great news for Big Mac fans, as a further 497 McDonald’s are reopening from today as the chain continues its efforts to get back to business.

The plans state that all 924 drive-thrus will be open by Thursday.

Today, along with the hundreds of restaurants open for takeaway, 43 more restaurants reopened for McDelivery.

Announcing the changes, a McDonald’s spokesperson said: “This is only possible following the hard work of the teams in our 44 pilot restaurants.

“Over the last fortnight, our employees, franchisees and suppliers have worked tirelessly to implement new procedures to enable safe working so that we can now help all parts of the UK and Ireland to enjoy the return of the Big Mac.”

Things are a little different to normal under the golden arches with face coverings, gloves, perspex screens. 

The new safety and hygiene processes mean not only will it look different but things will take a little longer. Coupled with high demand, getting your Maccies fix is likely going to require some serious queuing. 

As part of social distancing measures in the restaurants, each will be operating with a reduced team and therefore a reduced menu. You can see the new reduced menu here.

A full list of the McDonald’s opening from today is below. You can download the app to locate your nearest restaurant

Everyone is fuming at Gordon Ramsey’s £18 take away fish and chips

He’s done it again…

Published

on

Fox Broadcasting Company & GordonRamsey/Twitter

Gordon Ramsey has been tweeted a lot through the lockdown but not everyone has been impressed with his pretty expensive grub.

We already know about his £19 Full English (where you only get ONE sausage) and a £56 Sunday Roast (I hope it’s got gold on it) but now we’re talking about his fish and chips.

The classic Friday night dinner staple comes in at a whopping £18.50 and you’ll get a grand total of seven chips.

Ramsey posted the video on his Twitter with the caption: “You can’t beat a London House classic…. and this one’s to go!!”

He attached a video which sees him battering a fillet of fish before whacking it in the fryer along with some chips.

It’s all seasoned with salt and put in a takeaway carton. You also get mushy peas, tartare sauce and a muslin cloth wrapped half lemon to squeeze on the top tucked in the side of the box.

Sounds okay so far, right?

Well, not everyone is impressed by the fancy take away fish and chips where you only get even chips.

A follower wrote: “£18.50?? I mean if it came with 8 or 9 chips I’d think about [it] but 7 is taking the p***.”

Another added: “Need a few more chips in there. How much you charging for that? That would get sent straight back.”

A third said: “Fish batter doesn’t even look good, stingy af with the chips and mushy peas and all – bet it costs 10x that of the local chippy and isn’t even half as nice.”

A fourth followed added: “Where’s the rest of the chips? I’ve seen more chips in a seagull’s mouth!!!”

Seven Brothers make beer inspired by Andy Burnham called ‘The King of the North’

Burnham Beer!

Seven Brothers Brewery have created a new beer inspired by Greater Manchester Mayor, Andy Burnham.

Andy Burnham has been nicknamed the ‘King of the North’ across social media for his efforts towards government support for a tier 3 lockdown in Greater Manchester.

But one Manchester-based company has gone a step further, dedicating a new batch of beer to him.

‘King of the North’ is a North England IPA that has been created by Seven Brothers.

The beer is a collaboration with Tip-Jar and their ‘hospitality mates’ across the city of Manchester to help raise funds for individuals who are most vulnerable at the minute. 

They shared the news on social media writing: “Tiers are flooding, the tips have dried up… enter KING OF THE NORTH!”

“Inspired by the Mayor of Greater Manchester and his fight for funding across the North, we’ve teamed up with Tip-Jar and our hospitality mates from across the City of Manchester to raise funds for hospitality workers in need during this difficult time.”

“There are two ways you can help. You can visit the link in our bio and leave a tip at the Tip-Jar link for a struggling hospitality worker. At this not-for-profit venture, all your kind tips are supporting carefully selected individuals.”

“You can also grab a can of our KING OF THE NORTH beer, a portion of all profits will also benefit this venture. This New England IPA is getting a North England twist and it really packs a punch.”

You can pre-order the beer now and they will be dispatched from November 18th. 

Seven Brothers are also creating free packed lunches with their sister company Four Sisters as part of the End Child Poverty campaign.
