It adds that it will, however, "do its best" to keep stores open in hospitals where NHS staff can continue to get free takeaway coffee for the next two weeks.

Self-serve Costa Express machines will also still be available "where possible".

Cafes, pubs, bars and restaurants were told to close by the end of the day on Friday (March 20) by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

But they are still allowed to serve takeaways.

It comes as McDonald's and Nando's have also closed their doors to the public.

As has Pret a Manger and Starbucks.
