Welcome to the Wrotham Arms

Live music venue in Broadstairs

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.  


Rest & refreshment since 1870

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.

Events & functions

We are a 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.


Friendly bar staff

Lots of screens up protecting the staff so well done for that. Friendly staff and great service. We were lucky enough to get a table by an open window so could watch the world go by. Clean toilets which is always a bonus.


Wonderful pub and staff

Two brilliant evenings spent at this superb pub in the last week. Lovely landlady whom is always smiling, friendly staff and talented musicians.


Virtual Blues Bash

Barry beat me to it with his review of last weekend's entertainment, no surprise there then! It certainly was a real boost when many of us were sulking over the loss of our annual festival due to Covid.
