About Pearson's Arms

Pearson’s Arms is a popular seaside pub located just a hop, skip and a jump from the water’s edge in beautiful Whitstable. We serve real ales, fine wines and wholesome food to local regulars, intrepid travellers and everyone in between.

We pride ourselves on retaining all those great qualities of a classic English pub: a cosy feel, friendly atmosphere and quality food and drink. We’re also very much a product of our environment; Whitstable and the surrounding area is famous for its ales and locally grown (or caught) produce, and our menus are regularly changing collections of delicious seasonal fare. Pearson’s Arms is also well-known locally for our live music nights, with regular performances from some excellent local musicians. You’ll even find yourself pleasantly surprised by the standard and creativity of our cocktail menu.

Whether you’re looking to interrupt a seaside stroll with a lazy lunch, a drink or two watching the sunset, or even an evening meal followed by a knees-up to some live music, look no further than Pearson’s Arms.

Very impressed by friendliness and tolerance of staff with at least one of us not the best stair climber! Our host tried to book a couple of days later but you were full but on return spoke very highly of your competition just up the coast towards Herne Bay, so you have to keep up the standard when you re-open. Apologies if I've already reviewed you!

We had a lovely meal on a Monday night. Food was gorgeous, and service was excellent. It was only 2 of us plus a dog, but we were moved to a huge table to give the dog more space! Fish pie was DELICIOUS!

Always love a cheeky cold weather hole up and Sunday lunch with you guys, the food was great, cosy atmosphere, and a nice sit down by the fire watching the world go by. A shame with the 10pm restrictions, but it's only because we wanted to keep by the fire!!! ha ha however had a lovely time with you all again! See you again soon. thank you !! Kerry

A child started shouting for quite a while disturbing our meal and the bar staff were very understanding and quietly moved us to another table away from the noise. Greatly appreciated! Very impressed with the service all round.

Might be a concise menu because of Covid but wasn't a great choice especially for my partner who has a gluten intolerance

Lovely ambiance in the restaurant. The staff are very obliging but the food took rather a long time to arrive. However, the food was delicious and clearly freshly cooked and nicely presented. Overall a very enjoyable meal.

We had such a lovely meal here for my Mum's birthday. Nice atmosphere, it was nice and spacious (good for the times we're in now!) and great service throughout. Food was amazing. We all left very happy. Thanks a lot.
