I'm a member of the club. Let me know when you want to go (weekends) and I'll buy you a beer.

Thank you for a very nice offer.
I have always belonged to a club somewhere and, also and always, kept my associate CIU membership up to date but sadly due to health I do not venture out so much lately.

I courted a girl from near there many years ago and used to pop in this pub now and again, but to be honest I used to drink next door in Palmerston Road Working Mans Club more often that that. If that`s still open I would love to visit one more time.

I used to meet some White Road estate lads in there before going down into Chatham in my late teens. George Humphreys rings a bell as one of them. Nice pub back then.
What a shame so many have gone.

It's been mentioned before, but not with photos.
The Ordinary Fellow, Palmerston Road, Chatham.

I'll have to do a bit more research but I remember from my misspent youth at Maidstone, Crayford and Ramsgate dogs that there was also a greyhound named "Ordinary Fellow".
I'm sure that I was told that the owner / trainer used to run this pub at one point.

In that case the dog was named after the pub, which was named after George V (or VI ) who was nicknamed the ordinary fellow. His head was on the penny on the sign.

For sure the first pub I went in and bought a drink about 13yrs old, 1957. Landlords name was Snape if I remember correctly, he knew we weren't old enough and used to stick us in a tiny bar next to the bottle and jug. Only allowed 2 halves and had to go. It was the window you can see to the left of the middle door.
