Welcome to the Divers Arms, Herne Bay

A traditional pub treasured by locals, the Divers Arms is a hotbed of live music in Herne Bay.

Welcome to the Divers Arms

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’! 

Well behaved dogs and children are welcome until 9pm.
