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.

  • (**** 30 January 2017 by Paul Fisher from Canterbury

    Not happy at all with the food quantity . People know how much raw ingredients are and how how much restaurants are charging for the smaller size meals so I class this as getting ripped of shall not be going back but I am a minority

    Very nice afternoon/evening at the Pearson arms, nice atmosphere in the bar area with good bar staff in a lovely location. Evening meal was spot on and would highly recommend the lamb. We would definitely come back!
