I like to think that I know most of the good NHS/NUS deals out there, particularly when it comes to restaurants, but when my colleague told me about this deal I must admit I was shocked.
I'm not sure how long this has been the case, but some McDonald's restaurants offer up to 50% discount on certain meals for emergency services personnel. This has been verified in Yeovil (Lysander Rd) and in Bristol.
This includes certain breakfast meals as well.
All that's required is to show staff your ID badge and ask which meals (if any) are included.
I think if the restaurant is a franchise then it is at the manager's discretion but it's worth asking when you next go in.

Do you offer a discount for the Emergency Services?
In the U.K., we don't have a nationwide emergency services discount scheme. However, some of our restaurants do offer a discount for emergency services personnel, but this is currently at the discretion of individual franchisees (around 70% of our restaurants are owned and operated by franchisees).
Good luck and please report back if your local restaurant offers any discount.
