Welcome to the King George V 'The Village Pub In The Heart Of Medway'
Brompton is a small village in the Medway Towns between Chatham and Gillingham and is only a few minutes walk from the front entrance to the famous Chatham Historic Dockyard.
The village pub was built in 1690 and overlooks the park. It specialises in real ales, Belgian beers and malt whiskies. Hot food is available while the pub is open but a big selection of dishes is served each lunchtime and evening. The Sunday roast is so popular you could be disappointed if you don't book.
The letting rooms include a four-poster bedroom which overlooks the village green and a family room with a double and a single bed. Nearby Chatham Historic Dockyard boasts scores of attractions including Dickens World, the roppery, the RNLI national museum and a variety of old warships. The bar area is decorated with naval and military memorabilia as it is walking distance from Brompton Barracks, the HQ of the Royal Engineers, whose officers often use the pub. There are also many links with the Navy from the times that ships from the Royal Navy used to dock at Chatham.
The King George V is perfect if you are on business or visiting the area for pleasure, so come to see us soon. We are listed in 'The Good Beer Guide' and we are ' Cask Marque' accredited.

Take a look at this video which was largely shot in the KGV and the surrounding area. It's the first single from Yoji and is called Hold On. It was produced by Eph - one of the KGV bar team - and the video was created by Ezra and his company Meathawk. He lives in Brompton and is a regular in the pub. Congratulations to all of them. Please enjoy it!



IT’S HOPPER TIMEHopper dominates July at the KGV. We have the Hopper pub walk on Saturday 19th and the three day beer, cider, music and food Hopper Festival at the end of the month. We also have two visits from Morris musicians and dancers. But there’s more, so please take a copy of this newsletter so you have the details at your fingertips.

CENTENARYIt almost passed us by, but this year is the centenary of the KGV. The pub was renamed in 1914 at the start of the Great War when the previous name – the King of Prussia – seemed unpatriotic so the locals stoned the windows. We have a photograph of the pub in the King of Prussia era in the back bar. We plan to mark the event before the end of the year, but so far we don’t have any great ideas of how to do it. This is where you come in. Can you come up with any sensible suggestions. Please pass them on to John or Diane. 

MEDWAY HOPPER FESTIVALThe real ale, cider, food and music festival begins on Friday 25th July and lasts for three days. As usual five pubs are taking part and each of them will have at least 10 real ales – all different from the other pubs – plus ciders, food and live music.  A coach service will link all five pubs and run each day but for restricted hours. You can find details of our ales on the opposite page but there are far more details – including the coach times – on the Medway Hopper Festival website. It’s: www.medwayhopperfestival.com. You will also find more details of the ales from the other pubs when they have them finalised.

MORRIS VISITSWe have visits from two Morris troupes this month. Bishop Gundulf will be here on Tuesday 22nd, while Headcorn Morris visit us on Thursday 31st. Both of them will play, dance, perform and entertain in the evening. Please join us.
