Wrotham Arms, Broadstairs

Welcome to the Wrotham Arms pub in Broadstairs, Kent

A lively and popular local pub in Broadstairs, the Wrotham Arms lies just minutes from the hustle and bustle of the historic town centre and beautiful Viking Bay.  

It’s a friendly pub, promising well-kept ales and a warm welcome for all - but more than just somewhere to grab a great pint, it’s also an ideal base for exploring the town. There are seven great guest rooms, offering some of the best-value accommodation in Broadstairs.

Visitors to the seaside town have sought rest and refreshment here since 1870, but as well as a history of hospitality, the Wrotham Arms has a long-standing love affair with live music.

Indeed, this is the premier live music venue in Broadstairs, with bands and artists playing most Tuesday and Friday evenings, and now in our newly-launched Sunday afternoon slot too.  We're proud hosts of the twice-monthly Wrotham Arms Blues and Roots club, who recently pulled off an ambitious online lockdown festival, and an official venue for both Broadstairs Blues Bash and Broadstairs Folk Week.

From up-and-coming local talent sharpening up their show before going on to bigger venues, to well-known artists attracted by the intimate setting, there’s a wide range of superb shows to enjoy here every week...  when we're allowed to reopen that is!


Thanks to the wonderful acts who participated in our online festival.  We're discussing the possibility of doing some online evening events while the pub remains closed, watch this space!
