Introducing The Pearson's Arms

Independently owned and run, The Pearson's Arms prides itself on the quality of its food and wine, with an elegant, relaxed atmosphere overlooking the sea.

The Menu

As Well as being a renowned seafood restaurant, The Pearson's also serves a range of dishes for discerning vegetarians and carnivores alike. With Chef Rob Taylor's emphasis on what's best in modern and traditional mainly British cuisine, The Pearsons' resurgence has fast gained it recognition as one of Whitstable's top restaurants.

The menu is seasonal with a sourcing policy which favours local suppliers, and therefore the freshest of ingredients. With Whitstable's working fishing harbour nearby, the shellfish is always fresh, and The Pearson's has taken great care in selecting the finest local farms for its meat, poultry, and vegetables.


The Chef

Trained at The Tenth, Royal Garden Hotel, London, head Chef Robert Taylor worked in Australia for two years after a brief time at Le Manoir Aux Quat' Saisons under Raymond Blanc. Now back in the U.K, Robert's passion is exploring and rediscovering the full range of modern and traditional British cuisine.
