Mr Jarrett, who owns and operates the Wisbech branch, said: “We’re anticipating the changes we’re making will affect how our customers use it, with those who used to pop in for a quick bite staying longer to use the tech we have on offer.

A McDonald’s spokesman said there is table service to take the stress out of finding somewhere to sit when carrying food, potentially with children, bags and buggies.

“These allow visitors to browse the menu, look at nutritional information and personalise their meals, giving people more time to consider their food and drink choices.
