Starbucks stores will reopen from Thursday, something sure to thrill fans of the coffee company. It will open with a new menu – the organisation has said.

One hundred and fifty of the stores will open on Thursday.

The number is around 15 percent of the brand’s UK stores.

These will most be drive-thrus.

However, there will be a “handful” of takeaway-only Starbucks open.

Coffee will only be available to go, and only card, contactless and app payments will be accepted.

There will be a limited menu – however, fans are assured the most popular items will be available.

Starbucks said: “All stores will be serving a near-complete beverage menu, with everything from Lattes to Cappuccinos, Iced Coffees and Teas to Frappuccinos.

“Food will also be on offer but with a slightly more restricted menu, focused on our most popular items.”

The shop will also be offering free drinks to NHS workers.

Starbucks said it has been “learning, testing and refining our operational standards every day”.
