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.

John is proud of his range of real ales and Belgium beers, and Diane uses her culinary skills to keep the menus fresh and exciting.
John & Diane have run the pub for more than ten years during which time they have embarked on a massive refurbishment of the building.
 
John, who spent many years as a BBC journalist, moved into pubs after becoming a member of the British Guild of Beer Writers. Diane uses her extensive culinary skills to produce some of the most wholesome food to be served in the Medway Towns.

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

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.
