Jack Warner from Dixon of Dock green and his wife were regulars and Peter Camplin The Sun newspaper racing tipster which was handy for my stepdad who was a bookmaker at Romford and Crayford Dogs and Chatham dog track when it was open,we had the black taxis often popping in too with disabled children heading to Margate with them,we had a big motorbike disco I remember in our hall at the back one night with which a big fight broke out we really laugh at this to this day ! My stepdad running up the hall with a beer barrel over his head and my uncle Billy shouting ' is that full Alf to which he answered 'I'm not f....ING samson my grandad who used to be a boxer was fighting with everyone it was hilarious when we look back ,my uncle Jack Brown took over when we left and i believe had it right up to it closing so we moved back to the medway towns as we took over Gillingham golf club and also had a pig farm at Hempstead Gillingham ,I could go on and on about different things that happened at the galley the ghost stories are unreal what happened to us we laugh and laugh but it wasn't funny at the time tho my getting locked out her bedroom alsorts went on !

Only Fools... location
You're right JayCee.
I just checked the PO code out on GoogleMaps.co.uk and it takes you to a patch on the West. Pull satellite map along to Brook Lane on East side, go to ground level and there it is, minus 'Roman Galley' pub sign seen on Jolly Boys Outing episode of Only Fools & Horses.
I took ground level photos from the screen but nowhere to put them in Best Pubs comment box.

Wrong place!
not only has the Roman Galley shut down and been turned into apartments it wasn't even in this location! Should have been EAST of Herne Bay not to the west!

End of beano?
The closure of the Roman Galley seems to have ended the post war social phenomenon of the beano. The days when coachloads of friends and workmates would descend on Margate for a fun day out look as though they have ended with the closing of this pub. The Galley was the last of about half a dozen big pubs that once lined the road from London to Margate. There is now no focal point for coach parties on route to Margate and the return journey. It is a great shame if indeed it is the end of the beano to Margate. Is there another pub in the area that caters for the beano revellers? Have others in the last few weeks experienced the same lack of a place to meet up?

extremely disappointing
I am very saddened to say that our experience at the Roman Galley was extremely disappointing. The owner/managing was the most rude man I have ever met and he personally ruined a lovely evening. His staff was lovely and the food was over priced but OK.
