Pubs in Chatham? Nw

Can anyone familiar with the Medway area on here recommend any decent pubs in the Chatham area? Spending a bit of time down there on and off at the moment need to find a decent boozer. What I'm after is a traditional old style pub, none of this all bar one / slug and lettuce nonsense, with some proper ales on tap and maybe some decent scoff. Somewhere with a bit of Naval history would be a bonus too.

Whereabouts in Chatham are you based when you're down? The reason I ask is Chatham Is quite a big area and depending on where you are would depend on where you might want to go.

Most pubs in Chatham are absolutely shit, but try the Command House down by the Pentagon, back of the library and on the river

I think i used the command house a couple of times about 10 years ago - is that the big place, with two floors, by Sun Pier?
I am usually near chatham maritime marina by the south side of the medway tunnel, so i suppose I'm probably between chatham and gillingham.

My sister live in the area, a few years back.

We liked the The Crispin and Crispianus Pub, in Strood, until it burnt down a few years ago.

In the family, it was known as The Crispy Anus - little did we know an ARSEonist would prove us right!

Charles Dickens use to drink there, back in the day.

Was it ever put back to its former glory?

A pub I do remember was The White Hart, across the River, at Cuxton.

Quite a few 'Wall in there back then.

I suppose its gone all fuckin' Gastro since then - going back almost twenty years.

Try north of the tunnel in Upnor, there's three pubs there all are ok with decent beers and food. It's a nice place, a bit like the village that time forgot !

The crispy anus is still shut down and pretty much derelict. I was going to suggest Upnor as ME5 said, especially now knowing where you are as it’s just through the Medway Tunnel. It’s a small little village but has four pubs. The Ship in Lower Upnor or the Kings Arms in Upper Upnor are the best for food. The Kings Arms or other pub at the top of the village (Tudor Rose) both do cask ales, ciders etc. and are old school. The Pier, which is the other pub in Lower Upnor is shit, don’t bother.

Another place and probably nearer, is the Ship and Trades on St. Mary’s Island. It’s a bit more of a modern pub but does food and a fair selection of beers. Its right on the marina.

Oh and the White Hart is still going, Paris.

Chatham area....

Well, going out of town a little The Bear at Faversham is a true gem. Next to the Shepherd Neame brewery right in the unspolied town centre. In the evening, for perfect grub, around the corner there is a superb fish and chip shop (Tony's?) and if you ask pleasantly enough the landlord will allow you to eat your rock and chips on the tables outside while washing it down with a pint or two of Masterbrew or Spitfire. By day they serve food and you can eat inside the wood-panneled bars. Been there twice in last four months, so do-able.

Been a few years since I last hit Chatham hard, or any of that area really. The Shipwright's Arms at Chatham was very good, but may no longer be with us. In Gillingham the King George V was nautical (which you are after) but with a nice drop of draught Bass. In Strood The Cobham (or was it Chobham?) Inn was once excellent. But may now be lost. Oh, nearly forgot Rochester....a pub called Who'd A Thought It was pretty decent about 18 months back when I was last there.

For somewhere more lonely, try driving to Cliffe. There are one or two decent pubs there. (Last there three years ago).

Thanks all. Yes i will try Upnor - seen a sign for a C17th pub there, i think it might be the rose? I had a pie and pint in ship & trades a couple of weeks back, it was good enough, cheap food and the beer was ok too, i just prefer an older style pub. Do you know the King George V? Sounds quite historic?

Cheers whisky, yeah i think I'll have a stewards at the king george V. I've been out to cliffe years ago as a kid - my old man worked as a nipper in a garage out that way. He also took me to Cooling and the churchyard from, i think, great expectations. I was only young but i remember the place as being quite creepy, kind of out in the marshes. I'll have to go back.

Paris the White Hart is pretty much the same at Cuxton, the food is expensive there for what it is but at least you dont get food poisoning eating there.

Id give Chatham a wide berth in terms of drinking there, Upnor is nice cant think of the pub quite close to the marina there , also try coming down new road into rochester there are some better pubs there compared to Chatham and a varied choice depending on what you are after.

If you come the other way out of Chatham via A2 into Gillingham there are a few old style boozers along that road as well as a few wethersppon type pubs, have often ate in the honerable pilot by B+Q at Gillingham family pub and always friendly

When in Chatham I always drink at The Bricklayers Arms, it is a good traditional boozer.

The Will Adams in Gillingham used to be a decent pub , don't know if it's still there , the Governer was a big Gills fan .. The Bear in Faversham , decent beer & food , was once of my favourite watering holes ..
