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.

The Music Nights Are Now
Every Sunday
 
Live acoustic music sessions are now a vital part of the King George V. They took a while to get off the ground but are now an eagerly awaited weekly event.
 The next one is around eight o'clock on Sunday and continues until closing time.
 
Our Monday Club has really taken off. It began on January 4th - 2010 with £30 in the kitty and  increases each week by £10 if there's no winner in the bar. Anyone can join - all you need to do is fill out a form to register. Then you have to be in the bar between 5pm and 7pm each Monday for a chance to win.

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

 

BRIGHTER OUTLOOKNow that the clocks have gone forward and we have brighter evenings, we have lots to look forward to in April. The highlight has to be St George’s Day with a visit from the Bishop Gundulf Morris in the evening. But there’s a lot more as you can discover by reading on… 


THE CHANCELLOR’S PENNY DEALAfter two years with no drinks price increase at the KGV, it is with regret that we will have to put up the price of just a few of our products. That’s because our suppliers have put up prices at least twice – and in some cases three times – since the last time we upped ours. However, there is one small glimmer of light! In his budget, the Chancellor said he would drop the price of a pint by a penny. That’s a joke really. It’s a small fraction of the price of a pint. But we didn’t want to let you down, so every time you buy a pint, we will give you a whole one penny. Please spend it wisely!


KGV PUB CRAWLOur coach pub crawl last month was a great success. It means we’re likely to do another one although no date has been fixed. Ten of us left the pub at midday and visited four venues before returning in the early evening. We took in three pubs – one of them also doubling up as a brewery – and a working men’s club. We had a range of almost 40 ales and lots of choices of food. If you can think of a few good places to visit for another trip in the future, please let us know. How about a few micro pubs?   


St GEORGE’S DAY DEALS This year St George’s Day falls on Wednesday 23rd April. We will have an English ale available at £3 a pint throughout the day and our English whisky will be just £2 a tot. Our dish of the day will be English bangers and mash. In the evening our friends Bishop Gundulf Morris will be here to entertain you. They will be singing and dancing in the road outside and you are welcome to join them. 


CHARITY TUBEThe latest amount taken from the charity tube in the pub was £18-05. It’s a bit less than normal because a few of our regular customers kindly brought in their collections of one and two pennies. It meant the tube was filled quicker than normal, but it lacked the bigger value coins.  Those donations are much appreciated and can only be encouraged. However, this time when Les brought in a big bag of coins, they were changed for £1 coins and you will see those now in the tube. It means it will take longer to fill but should produce a bigger total next time. The cash went towards wine for the Christmas party for residents at Esmond House in Brompton. We will do the same again this year and if there is surplus money it will go towards our various charity boxes at the KGV. Thanks to everyone who helps to donate towards these worthy causes.


KGV RUM CLUBThe next meeting of the KGV Rum Club is on Monday 21st April. It’s a closed club, but if you want to join us, ask Diane or John for details.  


EASTER SUNDAY ROAST We are already taking bookings for roast lunch on Easter Sunday which this year is on April 20th. It looks as if it could be a busy day. After the success of the system we put in place for Mother’s Day, we will do the same again. That means we are taking bookings for two-hour slots from 1300 until 1700 with a £5 deposit for each person. For Mother’s Day we turned away more people than we served – and that was a record number – so if you are planning on joining us on Easter Sunday, please book early to make sure you are not disappointed. 


EASTER RAFFLEWe have put together a collection of Easter eggs – including a few quality Belgian chocolates - and cuddly toys for our Easter raffle. Tickets are just £1 each and the aim is to spend all the income on prizes. If there is a little left over it will go into the charity tube. The draw will be made in the pub at 2200 on Good Friday – that’s April 18th.


KGV WALKOur regular pub walks are always on the first Saturday of the month. The April jaunt covers a new route but they always last a couple of hours. We normally cover around five miles. All you have to do is be at the pub at 1000. We either walk from the KGV or take a short car journey to the start. On our return we have a free snack. Please join us. 


PIZZASOur pizza supplier has stopped making our most popular pizza – the inferno. We are trying to find another source. In the meantime we still have the other three 12” pizzas in stock and they are available all the time the pub is open for £8-50 each. However, from 1500 until we close on a Monday - and between 1500 and 1700 each afternoon – apart from Sunday – they are just £5 each. You can eat them here or take them home. It’s a great value meal and means we ALWAYS have a hot dish on offer.
