THE Frankie & Benny's restaurant in Ellesmere Port will reopen, the chain has confirmed.

Parent company The Restaurant Group announced last month that 125 of its Frankie & Benny's sites across the UK would close permanently, putting 3,000 jobs at risk.

However, the eatery at the Coliseum Leisure Park in Ellesmere Port will be not one of the premises facing the axe and is set to reopen its doors soon.

A spokesperson at Frankie & Benny's said: "We are delighted to confirm this site will be reopening in due course for our guests.

"Please look out for further announcements on our social media channels and website as to when exactly we will be open."

The Broughton Retail Park branch is also set to reopen, while the site at Chester's Greyhound Retail Park has already closed for good.
