The Highwayman pub in Peel has temporarily closed due to staffing pressures.

In a post on social media, the pub said it hoped to be open again by Christmas.

The pub said: ‘We hope to be back open again before Christmas and will let you know as soon as we have a further update.

‘Please note for all food reservations: We will be contacting all bookings in the coming days in the hopes to accommodate your booking elsewhere.

‘Pool teams: We have been in touch with the league organisers and you will be informed of the upcoming match fixture changes shortly.

‘Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused, we hope to welcome you back very soon!’
