Wendy's return to the UK - Stratford and Croydon are the first London restaurants

Wendy's are returning to the UK - London restaurants are incoming 

18/11/21 - Updated with news of the Croydon opening

It's been a long time, but, US burger chain Wendy's is back on these shores - and opening in London too. They originally opened in Reading but their first London restaurant was Stratford Shopping Centre (note, not Westfield, the other one) - the opening salvo of their re-entry to London. It's been almost 20 years since they were last here (their flagship store was where the McDonald's is on Oxford Street now). 

That;s quickly been followed by a second restaurant in Croydon (taking over from Barclays bank)

If you're unfamiliar with Wendy's, they're best known for their burger patties being square as opposed to round, and they're essentially a large fast-food chain - more McDonald's than Patty & Bun.

Sadly we won't be getting their Pretzel Bacon Pub Triple burger, but there will be some UK specials, like the Veggie Stack along with burgers like their Baconator and Dave’s Single (plus double, plus triple) and their classic Baked Potatoes with toppings like sour cream and chive or bacon and chili and cheese.

The queues at the opening have been round the block but if you've been eagerly awaiting the return, now's there are two places to head to.
