Frankie & Benny’s and Chiquito have applied for premises licenses at the Rushden Lakes retail and leisure scheme in Northamptonshire, the Northants Telegraph reports.

They join Pizza Express, Wildwood and Gourmet Burger Kitchen which were recently named as being among the restaurants going to the site off the A45 at Rushden.

The first phase of the scheme is due to open in July and will be followed by phase two of the development, which includes more shops, more restaurants and a 14-screen cinema.
