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

IT’S OUR CENTENARY – This year marks the centenary of the pub as the King George V. We’re marking the occasion with a special party and a big raffle. We’re planning the annual pub charity walk, our staff outing, a new pub crawl and more exclusive Facebook offers. Read on to find out more and please take home a copy of KGV News. 

100 YEARS ON – The King George V is 100 years old this year. For those of you who don’t know, the pub was formerly called the King of Prussia. There’s a photograph of it in the back bar. At the outbreak of the Great War, the locals stoned the windows, so the landlord decided to change the name to the current king on the throne. We don’t know the exact date of the change-over, so we’re going to mark it sometime in October with a big party.and huge raffle. 

THE HUGE RAFFLE – As we are 100 years old, we asked customers to come up with ideas for a celebration. The best ones came from Graham and Kelly. They planted the seed of the raffle. We will have 100 prizes. The tickets will cost £1 each and customers will only be permitted one each. Every one will have a prize worth more than £1. As soon as the administration is completed they will go on sale. Just like the World Cup sweepstake, you will buy an envelope and put your name on it. We will keep it until the big celebration party when you can claim it back to see what you have won. Inside the envelope will be explained what you have won. The prizes will vary in value, but everyone will be a winner! 

THE BIG PARTY– On a Saturday night in October – the date is still to be fixed – we will have a big fancy dress party at the KGV. This is to give you plenty of time to find something to wear from a typical wardrobe of the time. If your fancy dress is deemed to be appropriate, you will get your first drink at the price of 100 years ago! There will be a free buffet. Other surprises are planned, so keep an eye out for new posters in the pub. 

MEDWAY HOPPER FESTIVAL – This year it was the best ever. Almost every pub sold out of ale, and there were more people travelling between the five pubs than ever before. We were congratulated on our choice of beers – ones we had not sold at the KGV before – and the fact that they were being kept cool in the wonderful hot weather. It all bodes well for next year. 

KGV RUM CLUB – The August meeting is on Monday 18th August. This is a closed meeting for members, but anyone interested in attending future meetings should talk to John or Diane about the KGV Rum Club. We are planning a coach trip to Rumfest in London on 12th October. If you are interested in joining us for that coach trip, let us know.
 
MORRIS VISITS – The visits from Bishop Gundulf and Headcorn Morris last month were both great nights. They entertained our regulars with dance, music and song. Lots of people joined in and several photographs were posted on our Facebook page. If you haven’t seen them, then please take a look at them. 

KGV STAFF OUTING – Here at the KGV we don’t have a staff party at Christmas because it’s too busy. We tend to do it at this time of the year. It’s on Saturday 30th August this year when our stocktaker Guy will be manning the pub on his own throughout the day and most of the evening. Therefore, this is an early warning that we won’t have our normal menus available on that date. However, we will make our 12” pizzas available at £5 each throughout the day. The team will be visiting a brewery and a vineyard, so we should enjoy ourselves. 

THE KGV ANNUAL CHARITY WALK – We will have our annual charity pub walk this year on Saturday 6th September and anyone is welcome to join us. The idea is that you choose your charity, get sponsors and hand over the cash you raise. We don’t want anything to do with handling the cash. However, we do have sponsorship forms to make it easy for you. You can ask at the bar or go to our website and download as many as you want. We leave the pub at 1030 and take a walk of just over five miles around Fort Ameherst, The Historic Dockyard, St Mary’s Island and then the Great Lines before returning to the pub. It’s mostly off-road and includes some wonderful views and sights. All you have to do is turn up at the pub on the Saturday morning and join in. We have a free snack on our return. 

FACEBOOK – We are getting close to having 400 friends on Facebook – a remarkable achievement for a small pub like ours. We post a message about what’s happening at the KGV on most days of the week. There are also special offers just for our Facebook followers. It’s the best way to keep up with the latest information. If you are not a friend of ours yet, please go to your Facebook page and help to support us.
