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!
Great food on the advise from another table we selected lots of small plates to sample all the food. Great idea highly recommend
It would have been nice to have taken advantage of the 2 for 1 cocktails as restaurant will be closed Friday , however very nice meal and friendly, attentive service,
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
We enjoyed our evening with you very much. The food and service were both excellent and we hope to be back very soon! Thanks
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.
I have been to Pearson arms many times, food and service both great
Lovely food, mussels and fish and chips were amazing. Lovely view from the top floor too!
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.
Absolutely fantastic! Food was stunning and impeccable service! Would recommend the steak and salt and pepper squid!
Fantastic value set lunch menu which I highly recommend. The service was impeccable. The atmosphere great. Busy but at the right covid friendly level. I would recommend booking.
A thoroughly lovely time and delicious food.
We had a great time... tasty food, friendly service, and still warm and friendly despite Covid restrictions.
Superb lunch with my family and dog. Hot seafood platter a must try. Will be coming again next time we are in town
Great meal and service.
Excellent food, one of the best Sunday roast I have had in a long time and lovely and very attentive staff. Our second visit and we will definitely be back.
Lovely lunch. Staff very friendly and warm. Will be back soon. Thank you.
Food not as good as we’re used to. The chips were lukewarm although replaced very quickly when we told our server.
Well looked after and well organised in light of the pandemic
Great food , lovely staff. Will be for more
Perfect location. Good buzz. Delicious food.
Excellent venue for pre dinner cocktails! Perfect service & yummy cocktails 😋
