Headed up by acclaimed chef Richard Phillips, Pearson's Arms combines the cosy charm and fine ales of a coastal pub with the gourmet dining of a standalone restaurant. As well as its enviable location next to the sea, there are frequent live music events also.

The Pearson's Arms by Richard Phillips menu has premium bar snacks available throughout the day, such as fresh rock oysters with sherry vinegar shallots and tabasco, with main meals using seasonal produce, like grilled 35 day hung local ribeye with smoked carrot puree and garlic and thyme scented wild mushrooms. There is a great seafood selection, ranging from Gadd's Beer battered fish, to poached Kirwin's of Grimsby smoked haddock.

Rich desserts at Pearson's Arms in Whitstable include dark chocolate and orange mousse with orange curd and marmalade ice cream, and even dessert beer from the Meantime Brewery. There is also a full wine list.

Just moments from the beautiful Whitstable sea front, Pearson's Arms by Richard Phillips is just a 5-minute drive from Whitstable Rail Station.

    A lively pub/restaurant which serves very good food although the menu doesn't change too often.
    Friendly staff but not somewhere for a quiet meal.
    reasonably expensive but worth a visit.

    The restaurant is up stairs and they have a bar down stairs. The staff are friendly and it's have a old world feel.

    Excellent Sunday lunch, great atmosphere & the service was impeccable. One downside, parking is a problem, there are no spaces nearby, don't bother trying, go straight to any of the 3 car parks nearby, max 250m
