King George V Pub

There is always something going on at the King George V

What to do before pub

Brompton village visit is must!

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 ropery, the RNLI national museum and a variety of old warships.

The bar area is decorated with naval and military memorbilia 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.

Bat and Ball Freehouse

About the Pub

The Bat & Ball is a delightful free house owned and run in fine style by the experienced husband and wife team of Kevin and Sally Macready. Both have long connections with the licensed trade that go back more than 25 years.

The pub is somewhat tucked away in the depths of the valley of the River Bourne at Boundstone, a mile southwest of Farnham town centre. A little tricky to find first time, perhaps, but the return visits that will certainly follow will be much easier!

The pub is a great favourite with the local community and is regularly used as a meeting place for all ages to come and socialise. It also attracts plenty of walkers, being situated at a point where five public footpaths converge.

The pub is believed to be at least 150 years old. It was then one of 2 buildings in the valley which in those days was dedicated to the growing of Hops for the local breweries in Farnham and Alton.The story goes that the Hop pickers used to be paid in the front room of the house and it was inevitable that it was only a matter of time before the enterprising tenant saw the opportunity to relieve the pickers of some of their hard earned cash by providing them with a brew…and so it started!

In those days the beer was delivered in barrels to the bottom of a nearby road, then put into the stream of the Bourne and dragged the rest of the way by donkey power!

The inside of the pub is warm and welcoming, with oak beams, wooden furniture, terracotta tiles on the floor of the main bar, a roaring log fire in the cooler months and of course cricket memorabilia including pictures, prints and even bats and balls.

This is definitely a pub that serves good food rather than a restaurant that serves beer. Patrons can eat and drink throughout the pub or outside on the patio areas and garden.

The pub offers a choice of six real ales at any one time.

Bat and Ball Pub Directives

The garden has a children’s bespoke play area and a lovely vine-topped pergola that backs onto the Bourne stream.

We are pleased to confirm that we have once again been chosen by CAMRA for a full entry in their excellent guide.You can only get into this guide upon the recommendation of the local branch and is an acolade to the well kept, good quality cask conditioned beers in which we have great pride!
