The coffee chain said customers would still receive a 25p discount for bringing reusable cups with them, but drinks would be served in paper cups.
The coffee chain's Europe spokesman, Robert Lynch, said: "Out of an abundance of caution, we are pausing the use of personal cups or tumblers in our stores across the UK.
"However, we will continue to honour our 25p discount for anyone who brings in a personal cup."
He said Starbucks was suspending its 5p charge for customers asking to use a paper cup. ■
