Pizza Hut has announced it will open a takeaway in Douglas.
There had been speculation that the restaurant chain would open a full restaurant in the Isle of Man.
But a statement published on its Facebook page indicated otherwise - to the disappointment of Manx fast food fans.
It read: ‘We would have dearly loved a full restaurant, however this was not an option after over 10 years of trying to agree the deal with the Head Office Company.
