McDonald's Menu Items and Prices in the UK

McDonald's Menu Items and Prices in the UK 2014

I get a lot of views on this blog from people searching for McDonald's or Burger King menu prices so I thought it would be helpful to post here. And I am now on both companies payroll...

Please remember that this data was collected from a McDonald's in Cheltenham in January 2013 and is subject to change and regional variation. 


UPDATE: McDonald's menu prices has been updated as at March 2014. Prices have pretty much stayed the same with the premium items having 10p added to them. We've also now added desserts, drinks and the McCafe range. As ever this is subject to variation throughout the UK.

I hope it comes in useful so please forward the link to a friend. After writing all this out I feel like I have already got one of four employee stars.


Special mention to the McNuggets being listed as a 'sandwich' and the 'share box' i.e. "we do not encourage one person to eat this entire box". I'd also never noticed a Big Mac only costs £2.59 so I doubt I'd ever get the meal again.

I did try to get the first shot when I went through the drive-thru but was hurried along by a man in a white van.

  2. Thanks very much Burger Lad. I wanted to check prices on my receipt because I felt I was incorrectly charged for something. Your list really helped, and I have now emailed a complaint.

    Your list and effort is especially useful considering that McDonald's themselves do not have such a list on their bloody website. Charming. For a worldwide corporation which sells the same products and same prices throughout uk to not have such a list. McDonald's USA website have this pricelist on their website.

    3. Prices do vary from each restaurant. If you look on the advertisements, all of the prices are "From £X.XX". Most restaurants are operated by independent Franchises and not McOpCo, and these independent Franchisees control the cost of the food of which you purchase. 20 Nuggets at one location cost £4.19, but at another location they cost £4.69.

      In higher wealth areas, and shopping centres the prices will be higher. A medium EVM at the Tafford Centre costs £4.29 as of 13/10/13 but at another location they cost £3.99.

      You also need to take into consideration for the drink that you purchased with the meals; milkshakes, cappuccinos and latte's all add an extra 40p onto the cost of the meal. Iced smoothies add £1.00, Iced Frappé's add £1.20 - and of course, there is a charge to increase the size of your meal.

      If you think that you have been overcharged, then ask somebody.

  17. Thanks for listing this... Thought I may have been overcharged for a large Quarter Pounder with Cheese meal, but turns out I was undercharged as I only paid 4.19 for it.

    Unless the prices vary in different parts of the UK? I'm in Manchester.

  19. I noticed our cousins across the pond have a Dollar Menu (65p) and include the:

    Double Cheeseburger (only £1.49 here!)
    Sausage McMuffin (£1.99 with an egg here.
    McChicken sandwich (£2.59)
    Coffee (£1.79)

    How come they can manage it for just 65p lol?

    Thanks for your hard work.

    1. Because their products are, arguably, inferior - I have an American friend who can't stand to eat McDonald's because it gives her a myriad of health issues. When she came to Britain, I persuaded her to try it because of the 100% beef claims, etc. She said it tastes better, fills her up better, and didn't give her any of the usual headaches/stomach aches, etc, and that it was well worth the extra money.

  20. Thanks everyone for the comments.

    Not sure about the Halal one as that is .com.pk so Pakistan.

    If Manchester prices are different let me know, I am going to update the prices again soon.

    65p in US = rip-off Britain in UK.

  24. How can McDonald’s justify charging £2.39 for a Filet-O-Fish? It's not even Cod.

    From the web site...
    Alaskan Pollock or Hoki served with ½ a cheese slice and tartare sauce in a crisp breadcrumb coating.

    Half a cheese slice? WTF. Come on McDonalds, if that's not taking the p*ss I don't know what is.

    ReplyDelete
  25. As helpful as I think your post is, I think it should be noted that some stores have different prices. I am a McDonald's employee and where I work (North West UK) most things are fairly similar to the store you used for this post; Medium Extra Value Meal for £3.99 (add 40p for Large upgrade), Happy Meal for £2.29, Big Mac (or similar) on it's own £2.49, cup of tea £0.89 etc. Whereas a couple of stores within a couple of miles of mine have higher prices and are around 20p extra for most of the products. Also some stores sell things like Hash Browns and Apple Pies two for £1 whilst others don't do this and just sell them for £0.89-£0.99 each. I'm presuming this is why there is no menu online showing the set prices, I think it has something to do with the store being company owned or franchised (however I am not 100% certain on this). I'm guessing you could just take the prices you have listed above and give or take £0.20-£0.40 and you'll have a rough idea of what most stores sell their food for. I understand how frustrating the prices are, I honestly don't agree with them myself and think the food is majorly over priced. I hope this helps.

    1. I forgot to add that it also costs an extra £0.40 to have Milkshakes with your meal, so this adds to the cost and it isn't something that most employees tell their customers (however I make sure I do each time). It's the same with the new Iced drinks, but I think that is more like £1.00 extra to your meal (don't quote me on that). I'm not sure if it's the same with any other drinks (bottled, coffee etc) as I haven't really paid that much attention, I just know for sure with these two - a customer pointed it out to me!

    2. Thanks very much for your detailed reply. We did add the above statement as I appreciate prices can differ across the UK and at Motorway restaurants etc:

      Please remember that this data was collected from a McDonald's in Cheltenham in January 2013 and is subject to change and regional variation.

      We will be looking to check and update this listing soon. Perhaps you would like to contribute to an additional note covering the milkshakes etc? If so please get in touch!

      We very much appreciate all the information you have given us so thank you.

  26. Thanks very much for these prices! As a Business student I had to do a piece of coursework on McDonalds and couldnt find the costs of their products anywere (which just seems stupid that they arent on the McDonalds website).

  27. Hi any chance you could double check the price of a sausage egg & cheese bagel? Reason I ask is this morning I went in with a special voucher for a sausage and egg Mcmuffin and coffee for £1.99, which I used, and I also ordered a sausage/egg/cheese bagel on top as it's my favourite item from the breakfast menu, but they charged me £4.48 in total?!! I didn't get a receipt to double check it, but I think that means the sausage bagels are £2.49 in that Mcdonalds, rather than the £2.09 you list it as. Thanks

  28. Great site and great work Burger Lad!
    Any chance of an update to include their current 'specials' (Chicago Supreme, California Melt, Louisiana Bbq, Arizona Nacho Grande & New York Classic) as even the promotion leaflet describing them, which I picked up from a local branch (I'm NOT calling it 'restaurant'!) doesn't have this info.

  36. Wow, the price for cheeseburger is cheaper there than in my country. The difference isn't much, just about £0.5 (so, it's about £1.49 in my country). But, with the living standard (and of course the salary here), it's very much more expensive. I mean, the standard salary here is much lower than UK. LoL!

  40. Bit confused why people don't just go into their local McD. and take a photo of the menu themselves? As for people who aren't sure whether their final bill was correct, the menu (with prices) is right where they were standing as they bought their meal!? This is hardly useful, if you frequent McD. anyway. As for people who don't... well just go into one, they're everywhere on the high street/motorways etc.

    ReplyDelete
  41. It astounds me how stupid some people are. "I think you should have noted that the prices vary" um, he quite clearly did. "Im not going to mcdonalds because the sell hallal meat" - roughly translated, "Im a fuckin racist." "The food is cheaper in America, we get ripped off" - Try looking up "economies of scale" and the come back. Seriously burgerlad, respect for what you have done but it appears you only visitors are idiots (everyone) and cunts (me)

    2. Nice generalisation about people who object to halal there - many object as it's seen as a cruel method of killing the animal. You're making generalisations about people by claiming they are racists - people known for making generalisations...ironic.

      Second, even included state tax economies of scale is a poor argument. Economies of scale are vast in the UK network - a small geographical area compared to the vastness of the states. £1.99 for a burger (1.60 before tax) in the UK is poor compared to 65p before tax in the states.

      Thirdly, Mcdonalds could easily put the prices of your local branch in a search engine - many places do this that don't have uniform pricing. They are either lazy or aware prices high for what you get. The massive profit levels show it's high prices.

  53. McDonalds in the US is only slightly cheaper than the UK.

    * The dollar menu is cheap stuff stuff such as filter coffee for $1 + sales tax.
    * Lot's of locations simply didn't offer the dollar menu.
    * The extra value meals don't include a drink.
    * I found that the products (chicken, meat etc) seemed to be lower quality than the UK equivalents.

    That's just my observations...

    ReplyDelete
  54. The reason the UK don't publish their prices is because they have two main price structures. The southern parts of England/UK pay a higher price for their food than those that live in the northern parts of the UK.
    Source: A friend who's a McDonald's franchisee.

    Sadly, despite the effort and the "scant reward", the prices Burger Lad are now out of date.

  58. You should be able to find the pricelist on the wall. I have found that if you ask for Small Fries, it automatically appears on the till as Medium Fries, and I was told that Small Fries only comes with Happy Meals. I pointed out that if that was true, it would not be shown individually at 89p on the pricelist. It immediately appeared on the till after all, as if by magic. Are they making an extra 20p a time on this ?

    ReplyDelete
  59. In Edinburgh (Not sure about other cities), McDonalds there are vouchers on the bus tickets(something like £1.99 for Bigmac, McChicken, or Fillet o' Fish with medium fries)· If you get that, and then ask for a medium drink, you essentially get a medium *Extra Exta Extra* Value meal. It is about £2 cheaper than the extra value meal.
