A McDonald's restaurant in the south-east is reopening to walk-in customers from today.
It will be one of 11 across the country to welcome back fast food lovers for the first time in weeks.
It will be the only McDonald's operating walk-in services in the whole of the south-east.
The McDonald's at the M20 Maidstone services is expected to reopen next week, before town centre restaurants also follow suit.
The fast food giant has already brought all of its drive-thrus back into use in recent weeks and has resumed delivery from hundreds of sites.
But today marks the first time customers can walk in to order and collect their meals.
Customers will not be able to sit in to eat - they will instead have to return to their cars.
Strict safety measures will be enforced at the Clacket Lane branch, with hand sanitiser stations, a one-way system and floor markings to keep social distanced.
One person per household is allowed to go inside but children will be allowed if necessary.
Touchscreen ordering screens will be in use and will be sanitised every 30 minutes. Customer toilets will be closed.
Food on offer will from the limited menu which drive-thru customers would have already become accustomed to.
Orders will be capped at £25 and protective screens are installed at the checkouts.
