How much is a McDonald’s Cheeseburger now?

The saver menu is very underrated, with the majority of customers rarely giving it the time of day, but is always a reliable menu if you’re feeling a tad peckish.

One of the best items on there is the simple yet effective classic cheeseburger.

It was at a very respectable 99p, but now McDonald’s has hiked the price up to £1.19, a rise of 20%.

Will McDonald’s raise the prices of more items?

McDonald’s has always been known for its cheaper meals, and meals to suit everyone such as their happy meals and more.

It’s a good business that has propelled them to be at the top of their industry, and it may now be time for a change.

It has been reported that other items on the menu will also be subject to an increase of between 10p and 20p.

Alistair Macrow, McDonald’s UK and Ireland chief executive said: "We understand that any price increases are not good news, but we have delayed and minimised these changes for as long as we could."
