The new Bideford McDonald’s restaurant opens on Wednesday - take a look through our gallery of pictures.

Bideford’s brand new McDonald’s is opening its doors for the first time on Wednesday.

The drive-thru restaurant in Clovelly Road is the first establishment in the Atlantic Park site to open.

It features state-of-the-art designs, digital menu boards and tablet computers on some tables.

This restaurant is the sixth in Devon and Somerset for franchisee David Hunt.

David, who opened his first McDonald’s 18 years ago, said: “We’re very excited that the new restaurant is now open after all the hard work and it’s been fantastic to receive the support of the local community.

“I’m also delighted to be given the opportunity to come back to our original marketplace in North Devon and reward our loyal customers with this brand new, state-of-the-art restaurant.”

Now McDonald’s is up and running, the next phase of the site will see a Premier Inn and Brewers Fayre restaurant.

Planning permission is also being sought for a new Aldi superstore and Starbucks drive through coffee shop.

And further down Clovelly Road, a planning application has also gone in for a new Lidl.

The McDonald’s in Eastern Avenue, Barnstaple will be closed from November 2-17 to install similar technology.
