Welcome

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…

#day300 300 like the film 🎥 gosh only knows it feels like it as the Persian army 🦠 come hurling towards us. Well well well C-19 home juggling 🤹‍♀️ in 2021 #pandemic #homeschooling #business #stonebakedpizza #pub #taxi #building #ovi #yeoldevillageinn #bembridge #iow it’s all in a days work. Note to schools can you please note well that some of us are actually working abs need out 🖥 & day time. Please give us a chance to assist you to assist us with the children by giving an extra 48 hours to get work in, we can’t do it all in one day & work, it’s impossible. And we’re good at 🤹‍♀️ too 😂. 300 days of me ranting on. I’ve written to Bob Seely in thr hooe that he can shed some light on thrattrer as I really am confused 🤷‍♂️ as to when we can open. So here my dilemma ..... Mike came, 🆘 Eazi Bar Mobile Bar & Dispense Solutions 🌟 as we had sprung a leek, as our system for dispense is still on ready for operation. Ok it could have happened at any time, but it didn’t, anyway we were discussing how long I should be on standby for when the pubs can reopen again as BoJo and his 🌍 of thr 🦍 has said end of Jan (we all know that’s not going to happen 🙅‍♂️) so I’m not naive Karen. But we thought 💭 February half term, then it was hopeful for Easter 🐣. That is 11 weeks from now so operationally dead ☠️ that’s £14,000 for HMRC, utilities and general living including 3 month if mortgage 💸 etc. That’s almost doable on the £4000 grant from the government, savings & a 3rd job. But here the crunch Mike says Coors & Diageo so two major brewers have stated they are not 👀ing at being operational until May 😱. So that’s another 4/5 weeks if no revenue!!!! It’s almost 😅 impossible .... notice how I said almost 😅 as I’m thr horse that will neve give up. We just need an answer so we can work out our lives please. Nit too much to ask for 300 days later is it? I appreciate we’re all in the same 🚣‍♀️ but a problem shared and all that jazz 👐🤙🖖. So quiz was bloody good last night had a right old laugh 😂 it was good to see some new people, thank you for the sanity. Same time next week - 🃏 Monday Night Free Fun Quiz 1930 live broadcast from OVi💜OftheVillage 🧚‍♀️ nice indeed 💋. Well must go got to get ready for more kitchen antics 😆 👋 ... See MoreSee Less

#day296 Stone Bake Pizza 🍕 Oven on major service. It’s been 5 years since it’s installation burning 24/7 #yeoldevillageinn #ovi #pub #bembridge #stonebaked #pizza ready for takeaways soon #yummy #yummyfood #lockdown. So as thr 🌧 falls doen we have been tucked up in thr inside outside area finishing off the kitchen upgrade from the Shmmer and then part 2 in thr 2nd 🔐down. 3rd 🔐down has been used to out the finishing touches, wipe down splash backs and fixing our beloved stone bake pizza 🍕 oven. She 🔥 24/7 even dieting the last 2 lock downs. She was in need of some fixing with holes the same size as Ben Evans head 🥜 shaped 😂 only joking Ben. Cured and seeded with wood fire 🔥 for the next week to get the flavour into the stone ready for the launch of our nee 🔐down OVi from our hone to yours menu. Stonebaked Pizza 🍕 & Stig Curries. We’ll keep you posted. Always a laugh 😂 when we’re building and getting the OVI💜OftheVillage ready for when we are allowed to open. I actually got an email from our MP, thank you for keeping an eye 👁 on our little part of the world 🌍. We have replied as like all are concerned how Kong all this is going to go on for. I think like other business, although disappointing I’d rather know a date as it starte off with thr end of January, then end of Feb maybe March and now the newspapers stating that our industry could be affected to the 1st May Bank Holiday. Again. We’d just like to know as the cost to our little business opening and closing 3 times in one year has again whipped out any profit & savings made last summer. We just can afford to open abs close at the will of a 3rd party government who just doesn’t understand our industry. You still want us to pay our HMRC & employers PAYE on the furlough, where does this extra £2800 a month come from as we’re still shut? Thr £4000 grant isn’t even going to cover utilities or the rent charged by Punch, although discounted this time, thank you. These are all really issues times by the might of the number of business in hospitality on the Island alone. I can see a lot of business not opening again. It’s like a culling. Well that’s enough of that I think. We need to move on positively. We are getting ready for outside & inside outside operations as the pub inside we have now finished 😂, but it’s all looking amazing 🤩 especially as the man who cannot be named is on the case. We start of Bohemian woods next week abs thr new roof for the OVI🤫🪴 it’s going to be so cool 😎 really looking forward to you all coming to visit and see all of our hard work and dedication. Don’t forget in your diary 📔 Monday Night 🧐 FREE FUN 🤩 Quiz Night Live stream 1930 direct to your living room or where ever you want me ..... oooh 😮 ahhh misses 😂 🧚‍♀️ nice indeed 💋 see you Monday if nit from my Lego building window 🪟. We’ll be making some noise on Saturday as it’s my favourite 😍 No. 3 son’s birthday 🎂. He’s so excited 😆. We usually go out abs choose a restaurant but think this time I’m going to be the personal chef 👨‍🍳 for him 😘 be safe people abs enjoy 😊 the quite as the summer is round the courner. We’ve skipped Spring 😂 ... See MoreSee Less
