A new restaurant has been announced for former Gourmet Burger Kitchen unit at The Hive at the intu Potteries in Hanley.
It has stood empty since GBK closed suddenly in November 2018.
The Burger Priest is set to replace it later this month, at the 2,000 sq.ft space located between PizzaExpress and Chiquito, opposite Coast to Coast.
The restaurant will also generate up to 20 new jobs.

"Their food will be a great addition, bringing a new dimension to the overall dining experience at The Hive.
A spokesperson for The Burger Priest said, “it’s a unique offer for the people of Stoke-on-Trent. The provenance of our meat is fully traceable and everything on the menu is great quality.
"We think intu Potteries is the perfect venue and we’re looking forward to opening as soon as possible!”
