Motorway service area operator Roadchef has introduced what it describes as the first McDonald’s drive-thru to be located on the UK motorway network. The new Drive Thru opened at Roadchef Durham, located on the A1 at junction 61.

A dine-in option is also available at the service area, which includes WHSmith and Costa outlets and a Days Inn Hotel.
