JUST four McDonald's branches in Gwent are open today.

The fast-food giant has been closed for two months, but it has opened up hundreds of its restaurants this week.

And as it announced the reopening of more branches today, only three in Gwent made the cut.

Which Drive Thrus are open?

Crossways Park, Caerphilly is now open - from 11am today.

Blackwood, High Road is now open - from 11am today.

New Inn, Pontypool is now open - from 11am today.

The outlet in Newbridge is also open - from 11am today.

When will the rest open?

The good news is, you won't have to wait long.

All remaining branches will open tomorrow, June 4.


What you can expect to find at McDonald's

Fewer employees will be working in the kitchens to ensure adequate social distancing and worker safety.

Branches will also have reduced hours - 11am to 10pm.

And there will be a limited menu, which means no breakfast or shakes.

They are also encouraging you to use contactless payment methods and will cap your spend at £25.

A McDonald's spokesman said: "We are glad to be back but it will look a little different and may take a little longer, so please bear with us.

"We have fewer employees in our kitchens to enable our teams to social distance and work safely.
