Isle of Wight pub offers delicious pigeon

The food served at a pub on the Isle of Wight has been labelled as being delicious by a pair of reviewers.

Following a visit to the Crown Inn at Shorwell, Matt and Cat of the Isle of Wight Eating Out Guide were full of praise for the pigeon in redcurrant jus in particular.

"The little meal was delicious; the pigeon was rich and gamey and was perfectly complimented by the red jus," commented the pair.

They added that the spinach on the side "gave the dish a good colour contrast".

Matt and Cat concluded that they would go to eat at the Crown Inn again, after being impressed with the improvements made to the menu since their previous visit.

Those on Isle of Wight holidays who want to try the pub for themselves will find Shorwell to be a small village with three manor houses, while the Crown Inn itself is notable for having a stream running through its garden.
