McDonald's will slash prices on Big Macs, Chicken McNuggets and Happy Meals from TOMORROW

Fast-food lovers could snap up a discount Big Mac from tomorrow after McDonald’s announced plans to slash prices on some of its best-loved items.

Chicken McNuggets, Happy Meals and the Quarter Pounder with Cheese are set to come down in price after Rishi Sunak slashed VAT from 20 per cent to 5 per cent. 

McDonald’s has announced that it has recommended that franchisees reduce prices on classic menu items – including 50p on its much-loved breakfast meals, the Sun reports.

Other prices to come down include a 40p reduction on Extra Value Meals, 30p for Happy Meals, and cuts to the McCafe coffee range.

Items such as desserts and cold drinks will remain the same price, and prices will not be dropped on McDelivery services.

Customers have also been told to check prices, because many McDonald’s restaurants are franchised, meaning the franchisee has the ultimate say over prices. 

The move comes after Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced plans to cut VAT to 5 per cent for businesses in the tourism and hospitality trade.

Pub giant Wetherspoon revealed this week that it will reduce prices on meals and drinks following the Government’s decision to cut VAT on food, coffee and soft drinks.

The chain, which has 867 pubs, has also produced posters praising Chancellor Rishi Sunak as a ‘legend’ after the decision to reduce VAT from 20 per cent to 5 per cent.

Messages including Sunak’s Specials and Dishi Rishi will be displayed alongside details of lower prices on some drinks and food in place from this Wednesday.

The company, which was founded in 1979, said it will fully pass on the tax cut to its customers, including real ale, coffee, soft drinks, breakfasts and other food.

At 764 of its pubs a pint of Ruddles Bitter will now be £1.29, down 50p on average; while a Doom Bar will be £1.79, down 31p; and Abbot Ale will be £1.99, down 40p.

Lavazza coffee and tea will be reduced to £1.29, down 16p on average; and it will be £1.69 for a 14oz glass of Diet Pepsi and £1.79 for standard Pepsi, down 11p.

Fast food giant KFC will cut its boneless bucket from £10 to £5.
