Situated on Sepulchre Gate, the restaurant, which first opened in October 1988, has been given a high-tech £450,000 makeover to feature new self-service kiosks and digital menu boards.

The redesign also includes McDonald’s signature style with a bright, modern interior and exterior design, comfortable seating and free Wi-Fi.

This investment demonstrates McDonald’s ongoing commitment to high streets across the UK and is part of an extensive ongoing refurbishment programme. Many of the new features from the restaurant will begin to appear in other McDonald’s restaurants across the country in the coming months.
