McDonald's is to open a new branch in Tooley Street as part of the redevelopment of London Bridge Station, two years after the fast food chain shut its restaurant at Guy's Hospital.

McDonald’s to return to London Bridge after two-year gap

McDonald's will open at the corner of Tooley Street and Stainer Street, in the railway arch previously occupied by The Cooperage bar.

News of the new fast food takeaway came in a building control submission to Southwark Council.

The fast food company had a restaurant at Guy's Hospital between 1992 and 2016 when that branch closed to make way for the Science Gallery London attraction which opens this autumn.

McDonald's will face competition from upmarket rivals including Honest Burgers – which is also opening in the station – and Patty & Bun which is coming soon to Borough High Street.
