A Norwich Mcdonald's chain has been named as the best drive-thru in the UK. 

The golden arches in Thickthorn has been crowned as the best drive-thru experience.  

This comes after a study by Nationwide Vehicle Contracts analysed over 580 individual restaurants across 50 towns and cities to reveal the UK’s best and worst drive-thrus to visit. 

They focused on six popular fast-food and coffee chains across the country.  

To rank them, the study analysed and scored each of the 580 plus sites on factors including ️Google reviews, the number of drive-thrus per capita and Google searches.  

These factors were then ranked to give a total drive-thru score out of 100 - with a 4.1-star Google rating. 

Thickthorn McDonald’s scored the maximum on the index with 100 points.
