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!
 

KGV NEWS

 
CENTENARY PARTYThe date for our centenary party has been fixed, the raffle is now underway, our charity walk is looming and we have a comedy night planned. Read on to find out more and take home a copy of this KGV News so that you have all the details at your fingertips.

100 YEARS ONThe King George V is 100 years old this year and we’re having a party to celebrate. For those of you who don’t know, the pub was formerly called the King of Prussia. At the outbreak of the Great War, the locals stoned the windows, so the name was changed to the KGV. Our party will be on Saturday 11thOctober. We are encouraging people to turn up in costume from that period. If your gear is deemed suitable enough, your first drink will be at 100 year old prices. We will have a free buffet and you will get your chance to see what you have won in our raffle.

THE HUGE RAFFLEYou can now buy a £1 ticket for our centenary raffle. They are 100 tickets and each prize is worth more than £1. Just like the World Cup sweepstake, you will buy an envelope and put your name on it. We will keep it until 11thOctober when you can claim it back to see what you have won. Inside the envelope will be explained what your prize is. The prizes will vary in value, but everyone will be a winner! Some of them include a free MOT for a car, a day out at Diggerland for a family of four, a pamper day for two people at the Roffen Club, a watch and lots of meal and drink vouchers at the KGV. Buy yours now!

COMEDY NIGHTWe are organising a trip to the Roffen Club in Rochester on Tuesday 21st October for a comedy night. There will be a compere and three other comedians along with a chicken and chips meal for just £15 each. Tickets should be available soon. Just ask.

KGV RUM CLUBThe September meeting is on Monday 22nd . These are normally closed meetings, but anyone interested in attending future meetings should talk to John or Diane about the KGV Rum Club. We have fixed our coach trip to Rumfest in London on 12th October. We still have a couple of spaces left on the coach if you would like to join us. It’s a fantastic day out if you are a fan of rums. You probably won’t get a better chance to try a bigger range of rums from around the world. There’s also plenty of entertainment, seminars, food and other goodies However, spaces are limited so you will need to be quick!

KGV STAFF OUTINGThe team here at the KGV had our annual staff outing at the end of August and it was a good one! We visited the Foundry Brewery in Canterbury for a few pints and a massive bacon sandwich. We often have their beers at the KGV and they are worth trying. Then we moved to the Barnsole Vineyard in nearby Staple where we had a picnic and tried their wonderful award-winning wines. Finally it was off to the Hop Festival in Faversham where we had a pint at the Elephant pub before taking the tour of the town to enjoy the food, music and ales. We met several KGV regulars on the way around. Finally it was back to the KGV to finish off the evening. Sadly we didn’t have our normal food menu available back at the KGV throughout the day, so we hope it didn’t inconvenience you too much.

CURRY AND STEAK EVENINGSWe now often run out of curries and steaks on our special evenings, so it’s worth considering booking to make sure you are not disappointed. We offer three different curries on a Wednesday night. They are specially made so sometimes we don’t have enough. The same applies on the Thursday steak nights. We have run out in the past. Several of our regular customers now phone the pub beforehand to make sure food is saved for them. It’s worth considering this as an option. That way we can make sure we have enough supplies.

MONDAY CLUB The KGV Monday Club prize pot is getting bigger each week. At the time of writing it was £250, so if you are a member make sure you are in the pub between 1700 and 1900 on a Monday night for your chance to win. So far we have had 222 people who have failed to be in the pub when their number was drawn out. Each one of them would have won a cash prize. Make sure you don’t add to that number.
