Morrisons announces plans for outdoor dining in Milton Keynes
The supermarket chain has reopened its cafes at selected stores including Milton Keynes.
In total, Morrisons has opened 107 cafes in England for open air dining.
The retail giants had offered a takeaway service option for customers wanting their fix of hot food from Morrisons cafes, but it's now reopening outdoors where possible.
The supermarket chain is promising newly furnished outdoor dining areas at its sites.
Customers at the Milton Keynes stores in Buckinghamshire can enjoy meals like the Big Breakfast for £5.50; Fish & Chips that are freshly battered in store for £5.50 and a new £10 Afternoon Tea for Two that comes complete with a selection of sandwiches, pork pies, cakes and scones.
Ali Lyons, Head of Cafés at Morrisons said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming our customers back and have invested in our cafes to ensure everyone feels safe and has the best experience possible."
A new ‘Order & Pay’ app has also been introduced, offering customers the choice of ordering and paying from their tables via their own device. It aims to reduce any queueing in the cafés to help make customers feel safer by maintaining social distancing. Tills will still be open and available for customers that would prefer to order and pay that way.
All of Morrisons 407 cafes remain open for takeaway orders and customers can either walk in and order there and then or use the new app to choose a convenient time slot to collect their food. To order a takeaway from a local Morrisons café please visit the Morrisons website.
