In Scotland, beer gardens can reopen from July 6 and indoor restaurants can go back to business from July 15.

While pubs and restaurants in Wales are due to reopen from July 13.

Food and drinks outlets have only been allowed to operate a takeaway or home delivery service throughout lockdown but devolved governments have begun easing lockdown rules.

But while the likes of KFC and Pizza Hut have now reopened some of their seating areas – see the full list of food chains reopening for dine-in customers – others say they’re not ready yet.

Here’s a round-up of the chains where you can’t dine-in just yet.

Burger King

The Sun has asked Burger King if it plans to reopen for dine-in soon and we’ll update this story when we know more.

But the chain’s website and social media pages indicate it has no plans to allow customers to dine-in yet.

If you’re in need of a Whopper fix you can, however, order home delivery via Deliveroo or Just Eat at some branches. Just remember to factor in delivery fees before you buy.

Greggs

The majority of Greggs’ 2,050 bakeries across the UK reopened in early July following a widespread rollout beginning in June.

But it’s confirmed it’s only offering takeaways for now and it won’t reopen its seating areas yet.

The bakery chain couldn’t tell us when it hopes to reopen for customers to dine-in again.

McDonald’s

McDonald’s says it “isn’t ready” to reopen for dine-in customers, so you won’t be able to eat your Bic Mac in branches just yet.

But it continues to offer home delivery, takeout and drive-thru orders in 1,260 restaurants.

Not all locations will offer each delivery method, so be sure to check the McDonald’s restaurant finder to check what your local is doing.
