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…

#day387 happy Monday people it’s quiz night tonight from 1900 bring your blankets & extra layers. Yesterday’s ☀️’y Sunday ☀️ was a great shift. They only put me on thr bar 😱. So it’s been almost a year since I’ve done this solo and I think 🤔 I smashed it. Working up to Piña colada’s 🍹 and smashing those mojitos baby. We had a few first over the weekend as Ben Evans was working in with Emma Goss who christened his first official legal pint pouring, then he had to drink it 😂. Just the one as obviously 🙄 he’s a responsible teenager, he’s never had one before so gently did it. Vinyl DJ’s back where they belong spinning away on thr decks Al Henchman & Kathy Lockwood here all summer smashing out some classics. We have had a great 1st week complete with visits from the C-19 team measuring up our 50% marquee at a ratio 7:6 panels open to shut so ✅ we’re in a much 😃’er place. So great to see so many locals, new and old to the village, with some fantastic birthday 🥳 celebrations 🎊 too. So with half term over we’ll be settling down this week, analysis the week and look at what was popular Stig@OVI Currys were fantastic, home made 🍔 & hand cut chips too. I don’t think we had anything not fly out this week on the menu. So we’ll be looking to expand it up with our kitchen team 👨‍🍳 Danny, Troy & Alison were like kids at Christmas 🎄 to know that Kenny has now joined our team of merry girls & boys meaning that we are ready to rumble. Later on watching the football ⚽️ with nail biting shoots with Mark Champken & KC we were joined by Max & Fred for Maths 🧮 homework 📄. It’s when you realise your skills as a group abs use your local Microsoft Genius to complete. But I was honestly lost with Andrew Summers 🚂 🚂 when Max Chapman presented us with a fraction pyramid 😱 it was like saduko on crack. With 🍺 👓 on I think we were beat, green limos to get people 🏡 and a few more for the road and 🛌 was calling. Great afternoon. We’re all like 👍 so happy to be open again and thanks to everyone for their amazing support. So until May we’ll be open Monday 3-10pm Tuesday closed due to licence restrictions Wednesday 3-10pm Thursday 3-10pm Friday & Saturday 12-11pm Sunday 12-9pm. In good 📰 one of our Monkey 🐒 was returned. We are’s till missing 🙉 Kikazaru, who hears no evil, covering hiswars. Mizaru 🙈& Iwazaru 🙊 as sad until you return. Thank you to the people who returned Kikazaru he’s happy to be back. Let’s hope that our last one can be found & returned. 🤞. See you later on for quiz people. Have a good one the ☀️ is shining 🧚‍♀️ nice indeed 💋 ... See MoreSee Less

#day383 So nice to be operational again. Feel like a really useful engine, said Thomas 😂 got Ringo 🌟 in my head now. Eldest Leon Chapman was massively into a Thomas the tank engine 🚂 when he was a kids Andrew Summers would have massively approved. We were ploughing though some old videos last night after service of Troy Hebden stag do where I hired a pirate 🏴‍☠️ ship 🛳 to take us to Portsmouth on the ‘crawl’ these tasks stillSeem so very far away. Like it’s weird that yoy say to someone that we are full abs would they like another day, no we’re going home on Sunday. The Island 🏝 is busy abs I think will only get busier so a good safe season ahead we think 🤔 😷. We have guests for 5 weeks taking down the whole South wall incase you are wondering. Good thing is that at least by doing this they have to admit the problem that caused the inside to go, and therefore actually pay me, maybe. Let’s be ever hopeful. So we’ll see you all over the the weekend and have a blast. OVi💜OftheVillage ... See MoreSee Less
