A NEW McDonald's has opened today on the outskirts of Southampton.

The drive-thru has come to the Roadchef Rownhams services at junction 3 on the M27.

To celebrate, the first 50 McDonald's customers on Monday (June 27) will be in with a chance of winning a meal.

Visitors aged 18 and over can give the password "Roll With It" when they place their order, to win a meal worth up to £25.

Elaine Burt, Site Manager at Roadchef Rownhams, said: "We are delighted to now be able to offer a McDonald’s drive-thru in addition to the other great food and beverage options on site here at Rownhams.

"Not only will it provide a highly convenient option for those who want to quickly grab food on the move from the comfort of their own car, but it will also create some much-needed jobs in the local area.

"We have a wonderful team working here and we look forward to welcoming new employees and customers in the near future."
