Description: The Crown Inn is located in the small village of Shorwell, just 5 miles from the centre of the Isle of Wight's principal town of Newport. Shorwell, a countryside village in the southwest, is a pretty, quiet little hideaway – the Post Office is its only shop! Throughout Shorwell you'll find thatched cottages, three impressive manor houses and a historic church. Customers at the village's Crown Inn enjoy an authentic country atmosphere, a log fire in winter and a rear garden complete with a trout stream. It's a welcoming destination for outdoor types who voted it Best Pub For Walkers in a recent Wightlink survey. PLEASE NOTE: As of December 2016 The Crown Inn is under new ownership and management, please ignore older images and reviews.

Excellent Sunday lunch in the Crown Inn.
We arrived mid afternoon so it was very quite but nonetheless the service was second to none.
The staff member on duty was welcoming and attentive and more than happy to check out our queries with the chef.
Our food was really good such that we'll be making every effort to get to one or all of the forthcoming themed evenings next month.

Been coming to the island for years and always found the Crown one of the best pubs to eat, sadly now only average and over priced. Understand the chef left last year which shows in the food. I had steak and ale pie which was served up warm and the veg was well over cooked, we are on the island for 2 weeks and won't be eating here again. Now using the Buddle Inn which is cheaper and serves much better food.
