Great lunch... we had a crab sandwich, ginger and cod fish cakes and whitebait. Peroni and Hophouse 13 on tap. Decor a bit worn rather than quaint. Service was excellent. Expecting to see a re-enactment of an East End gang fight or shoot out but...More

Good little pub by the sea. Really friendly crowd and excellent atmosphere. We didn't visit the restaurant but it was still packed on a Tuesday evening.

Very good pub, but very expensive. The location is great right on the beach. Food is very good and they often have live music although you can't see the band due to the very cramped aspect of the layout

If you like sitting at sticky tables and a poor selection of food then this is the place for you. We ate in the evening and the restaurant is dark, so don't forget to bring your torch. Ordered a drink took over half an hour....More

We came here twice during a stay for my birthday. The Sunday meal of Moroccan lamb was excellent and the Thursday night steak great value. Ian and Pietro, the two main waiters, offered good service.

Have been to Pearsons a few times over the years and have yet to be disappointed. Booked this time for a party of 12, around the oyster festival weekend. Absolutely amazing food and service. All the staff worked extremely hard, and always with a smile....More

It sounds to me that lunch is a better experience at Pearson's. I do think that bread could be offered even as an extra! This was a special Birthday Celebration we did not wish to complain at the time as we were not paying... More
