The Real Greek is to open a huge 145 cover restaurant at The Lexicon in Bracknell next month.

It will be the Aegean restaurant chain's 18th UK site, and has been designed with the health and safety of staff and customers in mind. 

The restaurant will open from day one with delivery and collection available, and feature a 40-cover terrace area with heaters for socially distanced al fresco dining with a further 105 covers available inside.

According to the business, the new opening follows a 'sustained demand' for the business throughout 2020. 

Despite the insurmountable challenges currently facing the sector as a result of the pandemic, The Real Greek says it has 'continued to thrive' in the current market.

“The Real Greek is delighted to be opening a brand new restaurant in The Lexicon in Bracknell – our 18th site," says Nabil Mankarious, managing director at The Real Greek

"We have been fortunate enough to have enjoyed sustained demand for our authentic Greek food and drink at our restaurants across the country and The Lexicon is a brilliant location for our next restaurant.

"The new opening will also provide new jobs for the Berkshire area."

Last month Fulham Shore, the operator behind The Real Greek, said it was optimistic about its future​ after revealing a 7% increase in sales for its financial year ending 29 March 2020 and a solid performance post lockdown.

Turnover was clocked at £68.6m, and headline EBITDA increased to £15.2m.
