Location

The Volunteer Inn is set amongst a relatively high density of chimney pots in Victoria Street, close to Ventnor’s town centre. There are several nearby Council operated car parks and roadside car parking directly outside the pub. Considerable investment in the town includes a Tesco Express in the High Street, and it has seen much development following the creation of a small harbour on the picturesque Esplanade. The immediate population of around 6,000 residents is substantially boosted by visitors, especially during the extending summer season, wishing to take part in the many Music and Arts events for which the town is now famous, and to enjoy the wide variety of high-class eateries Ventnor can now offer.

Description

The Volunteer is a cosy hostelry with seating to the front and rear of the bar for some 30 covers, plus 6-8 people at the bar itself. The pub features a stripped wooden floor and feature fireplaces, as well as being eclectically decorated by the current landlord making the general atmosphere of the pub very welcoming and interesting. The pub has darts and rings teams. To the rear of the pub are ladies’ and gents’ WC facilities and beneath is a substantial cellar and recently created small kitchen area as well as further storage in the basement. There is an outdoor yard to the rear, used for the storage of bins, deliveries etc. Please see floor plan for further details.
