Isle of Wight holiday could feature Michelin-star meal

Tourists taking Isle of Wight holidays can treat themselves to a very special meal during their stay on the island.

Michelin-starred chef Robert Thompson and his team will be using Isle of Wight produce to create menus at Northwood House throughout July and August.

He explained that the pop-up restaurant could be a good place for visitors to the island to enjoy a good meal during Cowes Week, which gets underway on July 31st, as Northwood House is located only five minutes' walk from the waterfront.

"My menus will be taking inspiration from the incredible island larder and the intriguing history of Northwood. It's going to be all about the flavours of a perfect Isle of Wight summer," he said.

Northwood House was built in and played host to a group of Benedictine nuns in the early 20th century.

It is rumoured that the ghost of one of the nuns haunts the Victorian property, which is a popular destination for those on Isle of Wight holidays.
