Zetland Arms, Kingsdown, Deal

The Zetland Arms

With seafood, sunsets and stunning ocean views, the Zetland Arms is a picture-perfect pub on the beach.


Boasting an awe-inspiring location on the beach in Kingsdown, Deal, the Zetland Arms makes the most of its stunning setting - pairing spectacular ocean views with sublime local seafood.

You can virtually skim a stone on the waves from the pretty patio outside, and with the sea breeze and spellbinding sunsets providing natural entertainment, there’s no finer place to enjoy dinner and drinks in Deal.

It’s not just the location that makes the Zetland Arms such a popular dining destination though. The pub is renowned for beautifully cooked food, with a menu that champions fine fresh fish caught just off the Kent coast.

Even the ales here are a local affair - brewed by Britain’s oldest brewer, Shepherd Neame, in Faversham. Sample a perfect pint in the bar, by the sea, or in the sun-trap walled garden to the rear of the pub.

Or, if golf’s your game, make a date with us after your round. the Zetland Arms is close to Walmer and Kingsdown Golf Club, Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club, Prince's Golf Club and Royal St George's Golf Club. Our serene seaside setting is the perfect place to unwind after a ‘good walk, spoiled’…


Absolutely beautiful view on a blustery day. Loved the ambiance. Warm and cozy. The meals were of high quality. I had the last special of the day. That means food is not sitting after being made. Everything is made to order. My husband loved his fish and chips. Would have loved to linger. Hope to come back.

The pub is on the beach and serves an excellent local beer (Whitstable Bay pale ale). The food is a great mix. The pies are always excellent. I had the game pie which was a proper pie with pastry all around. The others had beef and one fish and chips. Quality first class and we were able to have a nice walk back along the promenade.
