Fitting rooms and cafes set to return to certain stores across the UK.


FROM May 17, 2021, hundreds of cafes across the UK will re-open for dine-in, meaning customers can enjoy a meal with friends or family whilst doing the weekly shop.

With its refreshed summer menu, children’s meal deal, and fantastic value on offer, the M&S Café is the perfect place for families and friends of all ages to socialise and enjoy a coffee, cake, or sit-down meal. 

The children’s meal deal includes a main, drink, fruit & snack for £3.95, while the refreshed summer menu includes several summer specials.

The new summer menu includes the Chorizo & Roasted Pepper Frittata, the Tuna & Roasted Sweetcorn Jacket Potato, and the Salted Caramel Iced Frappe.

Today’s reopenings in England & Wales add to the 32 cafes in Scotland that have been open since 26 April in line with devolved government guidance, meaning from today a total of 316 cafes across the three nations are now fully open to customers.

Jason Ansere, Barista at M&S Marble Arch said: “For many customers, visiting the M&S Café is more than just fulfilling a need; it’s a key part of the shopping experience, so we’re delighted to be able to finally open our doors to our café customers again.

“Whether they’re popping in for a firm favourite or one of our brand-new summer specials, we can’t wait to welcome them in and see our café looking like its usual self again.”

13 M&S Cafes in Northern Ireland will continue to offer takeaway drinks until they’re also able to reopen next week.

Fitting rooms are also returning – meaning customers can once again try before they buy and continue to shop with confidence at M&S.

Ali Grainger, Head of Clothing & Home Retail at M&S said: “Since reopening last month, it’s been fantastic seeing customers returning to our stores wanting to reignite the experience and fun of shopping once again.

“With events, holidays and hopefully a summer full of sunshine just around the corner, people are really starting to think about their wardrobe, and as such, they want to try before they buy – so we’re delighted that they’re now able to, with all the necessary measures in place to keep them safe and well.”
