Following a successful pilot, McDonald’s has reopened dine-in areas in the Rooley and Ingelby Road restaurants, which are owned and operated by local franchisee Saj Shah.

Social distancing measures are in place and the restaurant is carefully managing the number of customers inside to prevent congestion.

On arrival, customers are asked to use the hand sanitiser provided and follow the safety measures laid out in restaurants to help keep them, other customers, and restaurant teams safe.

Food will be served by table-service only with customers able to order directly to their table via the My McDonald’s App, at the till or kiosk.

Saj commented: “I’m thrilled to be able to welcome back customers to dine-in at the Rooley and Ingelby Road restaurants.

“Local customers are at the heart of my business and I’m proud to be reopening our doors to the community. I’d like to thank all my crew members who are working tirelessly to help keep our customers safe and comfortable in line with the latest government guidance.”

McDonald’s will be asking customers that choose to eat-in to leave their contact details by using their smart phone to either scan a QR code taking them to a dedicated webpage or visiting that webpage directly with the URL details provided on each table.

Customers will 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 (identified on each table sticker).

Reopening the dine-in area will enable the Rooley and Ingelby Road restaurants to take part in the Chancellor’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme, offering 50% off dine-in bills, up to £10 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in August.
