Frankie and Benny's have revealed which of their restaurants will reopen across the country in the coming weeks.

The New York-Italian restaurant and bar chain closed their branches at the start of lockdown, and while some will remain closed permanently, a number of locations are set to spring back into action.

What changes will be in place when branches reopen?

In a statement, a spokesperson from Frankie and Benny's said: "We have followed strict Government and Public Health England guidelines and have worked incredibly hard to put measures in place that guarantee guests feel safe and enjoy great experience.

"Guests will notice a number of measures in place to ensure theirs and our team’s safety.

"These include clear social distancing guidelines and signage, enhanced cleaning practices, mandatory health screening for team members and increased hand washing.

"The menus are single use and contactless order and payment will be encouraged as well.

"Guests will also be asked to book in advance and will be encouraged to pay at the table.

"Guests’ contacts will be collected through the digital platforms (bookings, order at table and pay my bill) and stored for 21 days, in accordance to Government’s guidance.

"During the first days and weeks of re-opening we will be asking our guests for feedback through surveys, so we are constantly improving the experience."
