Too-good-to-miss Food & Drink in Margate

There is a lot happening in the food and drink department at No.42. A lot.

Reached from Marine drive, there's Pearly Cow – a restaurant that specialises in wild freshness for lunch and dinner. On the same floor, there's a very cosy lounge bar that's hard to leave. And on the roof there's a bar serving cocktails, sunsets, snacks, and tunes.

Pearly Cow

Open for lunch and dinner, Pearly Cow is about what thrives nearby - all the herds, breeds, crops, and catches that dot our fields and teem in our waters. There's raw and light and smoky and deep. Think truly great steaks and the freshest seafood. It's menu shines a light on food on ice and food over flame.

Pearly Cow Oyster Bar

Head on into our Pearly Cow Oyster Bar in Margate. Open Thursday - Sunday from 12pm to sunset, it's a relaxed space reached directly from Marine Drive with sweeping sea views. Serving Whitstable oysters, Pearly Cow tacos, beach boxes, champagnes, wines, spritzes and beers. Walk-ins only.

The Rooftop Bar

It’s a rare thing (very rare - we're the only one!) – a rooftop bar overlooking Margate beach. And we have one serving up superb drinks and standout snacks to go with those views. Walk-ins only, excepting exclusive use which is available midweek and daytimes.

Afternoon Tea

It doesn't get much better than afternoon tea by the sea. Sink into the cosy of the lounge bar, or take in the stunning views from Pearly Cow, and basque in our luxurious surroundings whilst sipping on your favourite blend. Pure bliss.

The Lounge Bar

Just inside our High Street doors, the Lounge Bar is an elegant spot to sink into with a glass of greatness in hand. It's brimming bar is stocked to mix perfect cocktails, classic and otherwise. But that's only one of it's charms.
