MCDONALD'S customers across Dorset and the New Forest will have another half-hour to enjoy the breakfast menu, the company has announced.

The chain has been trialling an extension to its breakfast service hours – meaning hungry visitors can get their hands on a McMuffin until 11am – for the past six weeks.

Now ten per cent of McDonald's restaurants in the UK will be offering the extended breakfast.

The local eateries offering breakfast until 11am are: Old Christchurch Road, Bournemouth; Boscombe; Christchurch; Ferndown; Poole's Wessex Gate Retail Park; St Leonards; Asda Bournemouth; Alder Road, Branksome; Rownhams Services southbound and northbound; A31 Picket Post; and Poole's Manning's Heath.

Breakfast has been served until 10.30am at McDonald's for 25 years. However, officials at the chain say the pilot to extend breakfast hours has been a 'success'. Those wishing to order a Big Mac will have to wait until 11am.
