Welcome to the Old Village Inn, where every visitor is a local and every local is our guest.

Nestled in the heart of Bembridge’s old high street, this quirky traditional styled building is reputed to have been serving pints since 1787. These days, Landlord Jay Chapman (a Fellow Associate of the BII) is continuing this fine tradition and sources real ales form across the country to ensure there are always four on the pump and an ever-changing selection.

It’s not just excellent ales and wines that the Village offers. Home cooked food is served all day, every day. Our main pub menus are complemented with an extensive specials board using locally sourced produce.

The Old Village Inn remains faithful to the community and sources produce locally wherever possible. The Farm Shop typically provides fruit and vegetables along with other ‘secret’ ingredients. Over the road is Woodfords the Butchers who are an institution in Bembridge. Our chefs work closely with them to source the best cuts of meat available throughout the year.

The Old Village Inn really is a pub with the community at the forefront of everything it does, we look forward to welcoming you…

#Day180. Never have I ever completed a daily blog that is the highest score in 🎯. Win day ❤️. Loved it. Got to go out and see the 🌍. Deepest darkest Ventnor and beyond. We live in a stunning location. And it’s not until you haven’t seen it for a while you really appreciate it. Came 🏡 and spent some time with Max. The watching of Sherlock 🕵️‍♂️ Holmes, Robert Downy Jnr version. Loved it. Finally a picture with Colin Fletcher who has been a busy 🐝 putting the veins of the pub back together like a surgeon 👨‍⚕️, assisted by 9Sheds, massive thanks 🙏. We even managed to get it so Palace won against United to keep him happy too 😆 . Richard Marsh has been working super hard to get the water works in a good place ready so we can start boarding Wednesday. It’s such an A-Team effort, where the plan all comes together. It was Claire Brown birthday 🎂 🥳 🎈 what do you get the girl that live with hundreds of men? (Gnomes I mean 😆) 🧚‍♀️ nice idea 💡 a 🧚‍♂️ 🏡 with some fairies. Love it it’s so Claire 🧸. 😃🎂☀️🍷. The celebration 🍾 just didn’t stop a social gathering of a family or two, a ladies night out by the DJ decks and of course the 80’s night hen. What a fab night. Next week we have Sat night Richard Buckley’s crew in early doors with the Pink Flamingo 🦩 DJ crew smashing up the 80’s rock-pop end of September 🥳 all open air. All starts early doors so we don’t upset anyone, too much. Booking essential. 🍽 to 9pm then drinking tables from 9pm. ☎️:872616. We have also started a crowd fund on FB as the share idea had too many tax implications. So those that know who you are, if your still able to assist how ever much we love and thank you for it Jx ...

#Day179 So change & thr IOW - ‘How you doing?’ Things have moved so fast in our 🌎 it’s mental to think 🤔 that only a year ago Max was playing Crib Outside and the 🌍 was they way it was. Changes are interested and inevitable, how you judge this is your mind set. I’m still a bit old skool and believe some silly 😜 traditions and my ideas are quite far out there. I see into my mind in 3D colour shapes. I mind map 🗺 forward in months and years. The palaces I build are not for the faint hearted and very few people can see the months ahead in my mind. One massive journey partner has been the man who cannot be named. Playing to my mental state and traditions. 😮 We found money in the bar, about £50. It’s called dead 💀 mans money and needed to be buried in the building as it’s not yours to use. Silly 😝 I know but he allowed my quirky tradition to be completed. Thankyou. The winds of 🍀 will pay forward. The building the pub is looking amazing 😉 thr central bar, the circle corridor that leads to 🚽, captains table, sports bar, buffet lounge, snug, vitrified drinking bar, to the tap room, then onto the separate entrance for the restaurant inside outside area, just finishes it off. A day of meetings crossing the T’s and dotting the 👀 (wring eyes but jay hi wouldn’t be me would it) 😂. Massive thanks to Annie Horne for the introduction to Kevin Cruise. Invaluable 😊. Punch insurance guys are now sending their own surveyor. Only taken 5 months not bad. He said he’ll be here in the next 14/21 days. We’ll have it all finished by then 😂. Stroll on. A second wave is scary but again inevitable so it’s about us all doing our party and going out, enjoying yourself, socialising sensibly, do your part to help us to help you & others. Great night last night DJ👙wasn’t too bad either 😂 ... See MoreSee Less

#Day176 Airtek on site with our very own Nick9sheds on the case. The Boss Dave at his side for that personal attention. Very detailed, very professional, highly recommended service. It’s amazing 😉 what’s going on the walls are going up the boards it’s looking amazing and it’s so cool to se what I saw in my 👀 and my head 🤯 is now coming along due to the man that cannot be named. He’s strength, unity and dedication to this project is second to none. Massive thank you William Mark Skeldon. It’s time for my little Tutt Tutt to find a winter home. It’s in need of someone that is interested and can fix please as it’s had some summer abuse and will not survive the work tee outside. She needs some 💓 I’m happy to sell it for £2500 for a quick sale, I paid £3200 a few years ago Engine works and all is in good and working order. I love to look at it but it needs a professional who lives it. Anyone? Or even if anyone wants the project and not buy it I’ll have it’s back whe.mn it’s done ✅ and I’ll lay the Bill’s Edward Day maybe? The evening paddle boarding was a hoot and love to hear the middle boy laugh so loud when I fell in. But it’s so warm. Get on the water before the winter people 🥶. See you all soon be good or as good as you can and happy Wednesday, still don’t get it 😆 ... See MoreSee Less

#Day175 Morning 😘 so from delivery 🚚 of goods to delivery of the rule of 6. So very confusing 🤷‍♂️. So unlike our BoJo 🤡 to make it so. So as a restaurant which is basically how we operate rule of 6 is exempt we are good for 12, however if we a pub it’s back to 6. The rule is if you are drinking socially it’s 6 if you are eating with alcohol it’s 12 or if your Grouse or Game 🦆 shooting or Fox 🦊 hunting. Sounds obvious 😲. You can’t make it up there we go. I added the line that if you were signing in ana were on an official visit you had to declare yourselves to the manager upon entry. So let’s see how that goes. 1st day of table jenga worked well with the new set up. As I said happy to do my bit and so are my amazing 😉 team. If it makes us all safe then let’s do it. When is Duck 🦆 Season, no no Rabbit 🐇 season, no 🦆 season, no 🐇 season 😆. Got to love a bit of Buggs. Morning was a day of delays with unexpected visits taking up my time didn’t help but no Mo day blues here it’s Jay all the Way Emma Summers. Honestly love that lady and her 😃. The Stig’s spices have arrived Kieren Chapman and mighty fine they 👀 too, I hear he’s been teaching our James Danny Allen 🤭. 👀’inf 4ward to it, while the magic is happening on the outside the man that cannot be named William Mark Skeldon has done amazing 😉 inside. It’s like he’s Harry Potter himself with the little wand thing. Then after paying all the bills and listening to the jungle 🥁 that a few small minded people are moaning that we have not built right, despite them not even seeing for themselves or that David McCallum has been at the ❤️ of this operation as oversite, along with. Punch’s builders. Shame on you just ‘shut up, your boring me, get back in your small minded 📦 and get over it.’ You were Allen Sugar’d. Love to congratulate my friend Wayne Till on his new promotion at his job at this time too as he’s expecting a little wizard girl and we just can wait. 🎯 this Thursday son? Maybe an early start as the boys get tired after the building site. 🚕 looking good so let’s see how it pans out. Quiz tonight was fun keeps the old git alive Charles Millington love that man keeps us all fresh and real, we had some birthday 🎂 cheers 🍻 jolly good fun. New 🍕 was tried on us 🧚‍♀️nice indeed it’s like a 💋 from an 😇. Nice to see that EuroVines pulling the big wines out of the bag 💼 stoke of genius ✅. Thank you Iolandin Staicu is very very happy 😃. See you all on the flip side love to all. 😘 ... See MoreSee Less
