A large breakfast and main meal menu is also available as well as their selection of famous donuts, muffins and Timbits, of course.

There is a very large indoor seating area which will open on May 17, following government guidelines.

However, for now there is also an outdoor dining area if you want to enjoy your food and drink onsite.

The new restaurant also has a large drive-thru, perfect for those who want a Tim Hortons on the go.

For the grand opening, there are a number of great giveaways ready to be won.

The first customer in the drive-thru and the first walk in will win two free medium drinks every day for a year, a prize worth more than £3000.

The first 100 customers will also win a free breakfast.

Ahead of the grand opening, Life Writer Hope Woolston was invited down for an exclusive first look.

Chief Commercial Officer Kevin Hydes said that he cannot wait for opening day.

He said: “We’re just so excited, this is a great place to be.

“Harlow is fantastic, we can’t wait to meet as many people as possible and welcome them here to Tim Hortons.”

Kevin also hinted that there may be more restaurants opening in Essex very soon.

He said: “What we have committed to doing is to say we are going to be opening in every major town and city by 2022.

“There’s a lot of towns and cities in Essex that we are looking at right now to try and bring a Tim Hortons close to.”
