Notable changes also include a dedicated entrance for delivery drivers and upgraded production and staff facilities.

The refurbishment was initially planned for October 2023, but faced delays before commencing in March 2024, leaving Consett residents without the American fast food chain for three months.

A McDonald's spokesperson said the store was "super busy" on its reopening day.

It follows the reopening of Wetherspoons in Consett earlier this month after the pub was also closed for refurbishment for a period of months.
