The Northants Telegraph understands the unit and nearby former Indian restaurant Mazza may be under offer, with some suggestions that it could become a drive-thru or retail unit.

About 20 members of staff are currently employed at the Kettering restaurant.

The Restaurant Group, which owns Frankie & Benny’s, say employees have been offered the opportunity to relocate to other sites.

A spokesman for The Restaurant Group said: “Unfortunately, we have had to take the difficult decision to close our Frankie & Benny’s in Kettering having not renewed the lease under new terms offered by the landlord.

"All members of staff who wish to remain in the business have been offered the opportunity to relocate to neighbouring sites within our leisure and concessions estate.”
