The Real Greek is set to open its 18th site in The Lexicon in Bracknell next month.

Located on 12 Eagle Lane, the 145-cover site will include inside and outside seating and will open with delivery and collection after the month-long lockdown comes to an end in December.

According to the Fulham Shore-backed brand, it has “continued to thrive” despite the current crisis, and the new opening follows a period of “sustained demand” throughout 2020.

Commenting on the new opening, managing director Nabil Mankarious said: “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 provide new jobs for the Berkshire area.”

Last month, Fulham shore reported a 7% increase in sales for the financial year ending 29 March 2020.

The company – which also includes pizza brand Franco Manca – saw £68.6m in turnover for the period and EBITDA increased to £15.2m
