Some TripAdvisor users said the restaurant was still taking bookings and one had even had a Father's Day email confirmation despite the closure.

She said: " Taking bookings and sending confirmation emails.

"Got an email this evening for Father’s Day tomorrow saying looking forward to seeing you.

"And the place is closed. Disgusting."

Another also warned other diners of the closure.

They said: "Decided on a meal at George's so booked online 1 hour before visit.

"Just to warn others."

The website for the Leeds branch of the chain has now been taken offline, with a URL error cited on the page.
