A traditional pub treasured by locals, the Divers Arms is a hotbed of live music in Herne Bay.
Right on the Herne Bay seafront, the Divers Arms serves up famously good beers, fresh home-cooked food and wave after wave of brilliant live music.
Built early in the Victorian era, allegedly on the proceeds of a smuggler and one of the world’s first salvage divers, it’s a pub that wears its maritime heritage with pride - an old brass diving helmet among the fascinating nautical artefacts to explore when you ‘come aboard’.
There’s a raft of delicious drinks to discover here too, including beers from Faversham’s Shepherd Neame. Meanwhile, a popular menu of proper pub food prides itself on providing great value for money.
Add an inviting open fire in winter, a sunny courtyard garden for summer, a pool table, darts board and live music every Friday and Saturday night, and it’s not hard to see why the Divers Arms is so loved locally.
So much so, in fact, that the pub reached the final five of The Sun’s Pub Idol competition in 2016 - the newspaper’s nationwide search for ‘Britain’s Best Boozer’!
Superb value and plenty of choice makes The Divers Arms a great place to enjoy a pub lunch by the Herne Bay seafront.
An array of pub classics form the basis of the menu - think fish and chips, a ploughman’s platter and juicy burgers - while there’s also a great selection of lighter bites including freshly baked baguettes and filled jacket potatoes. Everything is freshly cooked to order.
On Sundays, a traditional roast (with all the trimmings) is served for just £7.50. It’s extremely popular, so booking is recommended.
There’s a public car park opposite the pub.
Well behaved dogs and children are welcome until 9pm.
