Marks and Spencer cafés offered takeaway options only until Monday, May 17, when more lockdown rules eased. Now, customers can enjoy eating and drinking indoors in all M&S cafés in England, Scotland, and Wales.

M&S cafés in England and Wales joined their Scottish branches in reopening to the public for the first time in months on Monday.

Thirty-two cafés had already reopened in Scotland on April 26 in line with government guidance, while cafés in England and Wales reopened on May 17.

This means that all 316 cafés in the three UK nations are now open to customers.

The 13 M&S cafés in Northern Ireland will continue to offer takeaway drinks until they are expected to open later this month.

To celebrate the reopenings, M&S has introduced 12 new lines to its food menu, as well as updated 14 of its products.

Over the past few months, M&S said that its food and beverage team has had the time to look at its menu ingredients closely and perfected each dish.

One of the products to be upgraded is the Oak Smoked British Bacon Ciabatta, which now includes six oak and beechwood smoked streaky bacon rashers sandwiched in a new ciabatta roll.

This item costs £3.95 and was already a customer favourite pre-lockdown, according to M&S.

Other new food items include Frittatas that come in two different flavours – the Portobello Mushroom & Feta and the Chorizo, Red Pepper & Spinach.

New salads have also been introduced to the menu, including the Roast British Chicken & Santini Tomato Salad and the Butternut Humous & Supergrain Salad.

As for dessert, M&S is offering a new Passion Fruit Cake, as well as a Salted Caramel Tiffin Bar and a Vegan Chocolate Cookie.

The retailer also has a children’s meal deal, costing only £3.95 for a main meal, drink, a piece of fruit, and a snack.

From the drinks menu, M&S customers can opt for juices, smoothies and hot drinks.

Cold drinks include fresh orange juice and raspberry lemonade, while the vast selection of coffees feature Iced Single Origin Colombian Coffee and Salted Caramel Frappé.

The smoothies introduced to the menu are the Gorgeously Green Super Smoothie and the Up Beet & Berry Super Smoothie.

For those who do not drink dairy, M&S can offer a supplement free of charge, such as soya or oat milk.

Although lockdown rules have eased, one of M&S’s priorities is to keep its customers safe.

Coronavirus safety measures still apply, such as following social distance guidelines and wearing a mandatory face mask when not at a table.

Tables are cleaned and sanitised after each use and spaced at least one metre apart.

Additionally, only a maximum of six people are allowed on each table and customers must sanitise their hands before entering a café.
