Difficult trading conditions are forcing the permanent closure of a restaurant this weekend.

Dining by Chris Franklin opened on the quayside in Peel in August

However, it will shut for good tomorrow.

On social media, Chris Franklin announced: 'It is with the deepest regret that I have to inform all of my customers, colleagues and friends that unfortunately the restaurant will close its doors for the final time this coming Sunday, May 28.

'The trading has been extremely difficult, with both unsustainable costs of produce, rising utilities both combined with quayside renovations which have deterred attraction to the area of East Quay, Peel. It has now become impossible to continue.

'I would like to thank all of my amazing customers for their support and feedback since our opening last August!

'This is not the end of the chapter for me however, Chris Franklin Dining and Events outside Catering is to return very soon!

Many thanks.'
