A good looking pub that overlooks the River Medway from its seating at the front, however it could be so much better.
The barman was friendly enough, but the inside was drab, whilst the choice of drinks on the bar was poor, with just keg John Smiths, Guinness and lager available.
Other than the location, there is little to excite the passing customer which seems a shame for such a good potential location.

Have to say that I don't know the area very well and have heard some bad things about Medway in general but I was very, very surprised when some friends and I went to the Command House on a Monday night.

The people were really surprisingly friendly, inoffensive and welcoming - there was a Karaoke on (as there is most Mondays apparently) and it was really great fun - no snobbiness or backbiting, everyone got applauded - what a fantastic night for a Monday; I don't think i've had such a good weeknight out in ages; most pubs seem to be dead on "school nights" but we really couldn't have asked for more.

Bar prices were on the expensive side but I don't really see how anyone could complain if there is entertainment provided with no entrance fee, especially on a Monday.

I would recommend this pub to anyone - I can't speak for the rest of the week but this must be one of the best and friendliest weekday nights out in the county. Top marks - well done, wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

A great outdoor venue and excellent beer. Highly recommended

This has to be one of the best pubs in the area, definately the friendliest. The bouncers, owners, bar staff and clientele are very welcoming and you feel very much at home when you step in the door.

I first went when they had the live music outside and it was amazing right down by the river on a summers day with a cold one. Sid (the landlord) is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet and was constantly walking around, talking and joking with the punters.

It is a little on the pricey side but it seems to deter the scumbags from venturing in so it's well worth paying a bit extra.

Best pub in Medway, bar none.

If you are looking for a lively (especially Karaoke on a Monday night with Marky Mark & Big Sid, can there be a livelier Monday night out in the whole of Kent? I very much doubt it!) and very friendly, welcoming pub, The Command House is the only place to go in Chatham.

A little pricey drinks-wise but i've been to a staggering amount of pubs in the area and haven't been as welcomed, appreciated and enjoyed myself as much at any other.

In the summer, the music festivals outside are of exceptional quality, good-natured, pleasant and friendly without any trouble.

If you're looking for a quiet drink and real ale, this pub probably isn't for you but if you enjoy entertainment with a trouble-free atmosphere, I couldn't recommend anywhere better in Kent or East Sussex, especially on a Monday night.
