It might be the season for turkey and the trimmings, but let’s be honest, there’s always a time for a McDonald’s – whether you’re a traditional Big Mac meal sort of person or all about the Chicken Selects.
McDonald’s, which has 1,300 branches in the UK, announced plans to close early or open later on certain days this year, including Christmas Eve and Boxing Day – something other retailers like Asda have pledged to do this year.
Will McDonald’s be open across New Year?
Is McDonald’s open on New Year’s Eve?
Branches will be open on New Year’s Eve, but will operate a reduced schedule.
This year, McDonald’s will be closing early on New Year’s Eve, as a show of support and gratitude for their workers who have been working for most of the tumultuous year.
McDonald’s UK CEO Paul Pomroy emailed customers earlier in the month, saying: ‘I know many of you will be looking forward to visiting one of our restaurants over the festive season to enjoy your McDonald’s favourites.
‘Given the extraordinary year we’ve all had, we will balance being there for you when you need us with giving our people some additional time off with their loved ones.
‘This means that some of our restaurants may close a little earlier on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, and open a little later on Boxing Day.
‘We will keep our website and the My McDonald’s app updated with our latest opening hours and services.’

Is McDonald’s open on New Year’s Day?
McDonald’s restaurants will be open on New Year’s Day for dining in, in tier one and tier two areas.
All restaurants must only be open for takeaway in tier three and tier four.
Even in the highest tiers though, stores will be open for takeaway, drive-thru and delivery until 11pm.
