The chain initially opened 10 shops on April 16 after deciding it had found a way to operate without putting staff or customers at risk.

It is offering a limited menu of some of its most popular sandwiches, salads and baguettes, as well as hot and cold drinks, baked goods, fruit and snacks including crisps, cold drinks and bars.

As well as food to go, it is also selling a selection of essential items including milk, butter and coffee.

Pret has asked staff who usually work in the 20 shops to come back to work, and all staff have undergone an interview to check they are well enough to work.

To ensure the safety of others, those living with anyone vulnerable will not be permitted to return.

Pret has taken a number of safety measures to make sure that its staff and customers are kept safe.

It has arranged designated pick-up points for delivery drivers, who will use separate doors where possible.

It has also changed the way its kitchen is organised to minimise movement and to help with social distancing.

And it is also doing more cleaning, installing screens at tills and only accepting card payments.

Only six customers will be allowed in the shop at any time.

Costa has also stared reopening some of its sites.

And Greggs has also reopened some of its branches.

Here's a full list of all the shops and food businesses which have thrown open their doors again.
