A Restaurant Group spokesperson said: “We announced a review of our leisure estate in March and made the difficult decision to exit some of our Frankie & Benny’s and Chiquito sites.

“We are working closely with our impacted teams and will look to redeploy colleagues to neighbouring sites across our wider estate wherever possible.”

Earlier this year it was revealed a total of 35 were set to close but plans have been brought forward to close 18 branches this week.  TRG said it had negotiated to exit a number of contacts ahead of schedule, the Mirror reports.
