March 7 (Reuters) - Restaurant Group Plc, the owner of the Frankie & Benny’s chain, reported a 26.4 percent fall in 2017 pre-tax profit on Wednesday as Britons spent less on eating and drinking out.

Sales at outlets open over a year fell 3 percent, while revenue for the year declined 4.4 percent to 679.3 million pounds.
