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!

THE HUGE RAFFLE You can also now your centenary raffle envelope on our party night. If you were one of the lucky 100 people who were able to buy a ticket, you can open your envelope and claim your prize. Tickets were £1 each but every prize is worth more than that amount. It might get a little busy so please be patient. Some of the prizes are really superb.

HALLOWEEN PARTYAs Halloween falls on a Friday night this year, we’re having a fancy dress party at the pub. Just a reminder – it’s on Friday 31st October. We will have the pub decked out in appropriate material, so now it’s down to you to match our efforts. There will be prizes for the best dressed.

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 are now available at the bar. Just ask.

MONDAY CLUBAt the start of the month, the prize pot for the Monday Club is getting near £300. The biggest total it has reached so far is £330 so it will be interesting to see if that figure is matched or made even bigger. So far there have been 21 winners who have taken home a total of £3,250. On 227 occasions the number drawn out on a Monday night has been matched to a member not in the pub at the time. So there is only one certain way to pick up the cash if your number is drawn. Be here between 1700 and 1900 on a Monday night. If you are not a member, it’s free to join. Just ask the bar staff to give you a membership form. When you have filled in all the categories, hand it back to the staff and you will be added into the pot the following week. And don’t forget there is a winner every week. When you come into the pub on a Monday you are given a raffle ticket. If the big cash prize is not won, one of those tickets is drawn and the winner will walk away with a small prize. So there is always a winner each week.

MEDWAY BEER FESTIVALIt’s now getting closer to the annual Medway Beer Festival. It’s at the Stanley Ballroom in Chatham and runs from Thursday 13th November for three days.We will have 50 real ales, a big collection of Magic Bus cider and lots of bottled Belgian beers – including a range of Christmas specials. Leon will once again be there with his massive range of bottled Kent beers. The food choice should be even bigger this year and we have live music lined-up for each evening. On Saturday afternoon we will have a quiz with a cash prize. Please put the dates in your diary.

REMEMBRANCE SERVICENovember 11th falls on a Tuesday this year so we will have our annual remembrance service at the Great Lines Naval Memorial on that day. It’s become a regular event in the local calendar. From 1000 we will offer free coffee and tea in the pub before we move off to the service. When it’s over you can return to the KGV for a free buffet. We will have an order of service so that you can follow proceedings and join in. If you want to lay a wreath, please do. Turnout in the past has been impressive. Let’s see if we can swell those numbers this year.

PUB WALKS  – The annual KGV charity walk was in September and raised cash for a variety of charities this year. They included Cancer Research, The RNLI, Kent Air Ambulance, Sight Savers and Parkinson’s UK. Thanks to everyone who took part. Our walks at the pub are every first Saturday of the month. We meet here at 1000 and set off for a walk of around five miles which takes about two hours.  Then we return to the pub for a free snack. This month we have a new route – so please join us. You can also see our photos on Facebook.
