Frankie and Benny's is the latest national chain to sign an agreement to join the Dover Town Investment Zone. 

The Restaurant Group Plc will lease its brand in a 4,300sq ft unit next to Cineworld, who signed an agreement to lease a six-screen, 21,000sqft cinema in September last year.

The St James’s development will total 120,000sqft of mixed-use retail and leisure with parking for 445 vehicles in the heart of Dover town centre.

Shelley Sandzer and Stephen Buckle & Co acted for Bond City and Wareing & Partners acted for The Restaurant Group.

Tim Ingleton, head of inward investment for Dover District Council, said: “We are delighted that Frankie & Benny’s have committed to Dover.

"They are an excellent addition to our anchor tenant signings, Cineworld and M&S.  This deal demonstrates that occupiers share our vision for the future of the town centre.”
