The words that have been on the lips of Herefordians and people far and wide for years have finally come true. 

‘The Beefy Boys should move into Frankie & Benny’s’ – Well we can confirm today that they WILL BE doing just that!

We are pleased to announce that The Beefy Boys will be knocking a hole in the wall and temporarily taking over the former Frankie and Benny’s unit next door to The Beefy Boys.

Anthony Murphy from The Beefy Boys said:

“From the start of this pandemic our landlords have gone above and beyond to help us continue trading through what has been an extremely turbulent time for the hospitality industry and especially for a small local independent like us.

“Due to social distancing measures on our tables and increasing the size of our kitchen to allow our staff to work 2 meters apart, we have seen the indoor capacity of our restaurant reduced from 80 to 20.

“We were lucky enough to be granted an extended outdoor seating area to help us through this difficult time. which has been great, but with the weather getting colder and the evenings drawing in we knew it would only be a viable alternative for a short period of time.

“We approached our landlord with the idea for us to temporarily take over the empty Frankie and Benny’s unit next door for the next 12 months, allowing us to safely sit our customers indoors and hopefully giving us the space we need to still trade at our usual level, until (hopefully) the world returns to some form of normality next year.

“We will be doing a small amount of renovation work on the building and taking the opportunity to relaunch our menu with lots of exciting options on there that we can’t wait for people to try.

“We hope to get our new space open very soon and we would like to thank all of our customers for the huge amount of support they have shown us since the world was turned upside down back in March. We would not be here today if it wasn’t for your constant support.

“Here’s to the next twelve months and let’s hope we can all move on to bigger and better things.”
