McDonald's has added the triple cheeseburger to its permanent menu in the UK, a burger made from three 100 per cent pure beef patties.

The new menu item is available nationwide for customers to purchase from Wednesday 2 September.

The announcement of the triple cheeseburger on McDonald's menus in the UK comes after the fast food chain successfully trialled adding the triple-decker sandwich to its menu at 60 Yorkshire restaurants in February 2020.

The burger will cost from £2.19, though will vary slightly in price according to which branch it is being bought from.

The single version costs 99p, while the double costs around £1.59.

Like the double burger, the new meatier addition is made from 100 per cent British and Irish beef with onions, pickles, mustard and cheese, and served in a soft toasted bun.

The triple burger is on the menu in the US and Australia already, but hasn't been a permanent addition to the UK menu until now.

The burger was previously on the menu in McDonald's in the UK in 1994. To coincide with the World Cup it was named the Hat Trick according to BurgerLad.

McDonald's began a phased reopening for delivery, drive-thru and takeaway in May, before opening more stores and increasing the items on its menu on 8 July.

The majority of the 1,260 branches now operating again have reopened for breakfast.

It means that many of the restaurants are now open 24 hours a day, once again.

McDonald’s recently confirmed that its popular Monopoly promotion, which has run since 2005 in the UK, has been postponed until next year.
