After years as a battered old seaside boozer, the Pearson’s Arms is now leading a new life as one of Whitstable’s more stylish destinations – courtesy of TV chef Richard Phillips. From the outside you probably wouldn’t give this place a second glance, but the bland exterior hides a cheerful mix of open fires, wood floors, sturdy tables, old-school chairs & leather sofas, with a spacious, light-filled dining room providing sea views & classic gastropub food. The menu is a judicious mix of European ideas, with seasonality taking centre stage. Chalked up on the board might be lobster & prawn cocktail or shellfish bisque, with mains of wild boar & apple sausages, cod & chips or slow-roast belly pork. There are plenty of affordable wines on offer, with a reasonable selection by the glass.

I was with my colleagues conducting a photo shoot in Whitstable and there was time to grab some lunch at The Pearson's Arms. As a large team we ordered a selection of light bites and larger meals and everyone shared and dug into whatever they felt like. I feel like I tried a real cross section of dishes from lobster pasta to a chicken wrap, Oysters and insanely perfect triple cooked chips. It was exceptionally good. Every dish has been given care and thought, the flavours were well balanced with interesting textures and such beautiful presentation on the plate. I'm already planning my next trip back with my family. Lovely venue relaxed, unassuming but with fantastically good food. What a secret find!
