The branch of Gourmet Burger Kitchen at the intu Potteries Centre in Hanley has closed its doors.
Diners arriving at the restaurant in the Hive development today (28 November) were met with a closed sign on the door today.
The chain's owners announced earlier this month they were shutting 17 branches, as part of a company voluntary arrangement.
A spokesperson for the intu Potteries Centre said: "We are disappointed that Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK) has closed down. This is a commercial decision taken by GBK. We wish their staff well.
"We are currently talking to a number of restaurants who are keen to be in our leisure complex, The Hive."
