Why dine at Arlingtons?
Excellent food in wonderful surroundings. Tastes to suit all palates. If you're not sure what you want our 'Sharing Plates' menu solves the problem. Order two or three plates and get a range of flavours and textures to excite the palate. Feeling a little hungrier, then add a plate or two as you go. Nicknamed 'British Tapas' our food is fresh and local but with influences from around the world.
Dine wherever you want in our Grade 2 Listed Building - the original Ipswich Museum - enjoy the informal atmosphere of the Cafe / Cocktail Bar or relax in wonderfully calm Palm Court. Alternatively, enjoy a romantic dinner for two in the Gallery. There's something for everyone at Arlingtons.
Also, if you are looking to host a business lunch, family birthday party or just want some privacy, our Darwin Room will suit you perfectly and is available to hire for your sole use. It will accommodate up to 14 people to provide an intimate and self-contained space for your event.
I'd heard this was now the 'in' place to eat in Ipswich and my contacts weren't wrong. Excellent food, smallish A La Carte but it was gourmet standard and as good as what I've had in up market places in London. Service was excellent and they have a really interesting wine list too.
This was my second visit and I wasn't dissappointed. My partner went for the beef sandwich which was delicious. Soft and tender and a choice of mustard - English or wholegrain - wow! I had one of the starters from the a la carte menu which was a work of art (pigeon with black pudding and beetroot) and simply stunning. A really great place to eat. The staff were very helpful too.
Excellent food and service, made us very welcome, the restaurant was beautifully decorated for Valentines Day and they went to great lengths to make our little daughter very very happy. The live music was great, I would recommend this restaurant, we will be back
Excellent food served in a friendly, professional manner. The chef's recommended dessert was very much appreciated.
Excellent. Really enjoyed it. Delicious fresh food, cooked to order. Well done. We'll be back soon.
Many thanks for your review. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Please keep an eye on our website for live music events which are coming up.
It was our first time at Arlingtons and will be retuning very soon. We had a fabulous meal with very friendly staff and excellent service. Would highly recommend.
Thank you for your review. We're delighted you enjoyed yourself and we look forward to seeing you again.
This is the best place I've been to in Ipswich. The building is amazing - just so much character. The staff were very professional, friendly and really welcoming. Although I'm a confirmed carnivore, I had the autumn salad (and I'm not doing Vegan January either) which was just superb and my favourite. My friend (who is vegetarian) was really impressed by the range of veggie food (and not a nut roast in sight!) The sharing plates idea is excellent and we ended up having most of what was available on the menu - lots of different tastes and flavours. Brilliant. Definitely going back.
Thank you, Melissa. We're really pleased you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to seeing you again. Do look out for our special events coming up such as Valentines Day and Live Music events which are all on our website.
An interesting selection of menu choices - not sure that portion sizes are good value for money. Really liked the honey bread dessert. Does this mean that sharing plates are the only option now?
Many thanks for your feedback. Portion sizes have been designed to provide a healthy option so that if you wanted to count the calories you could just order one item from the menu but if you have a somewhat healthier appetite, you could order two or three or more plates - and many customers do - whilst also getting a variety of tastes too. Each item is freshly prepared by our trained chefs using the highest quality local ingredients and therefore we feel that the price charged is reasonable. Indeed, two people could eat with us for under £ 13 excluding drinks. We are soon going to be launching our fine dining, a la carte menu where you can have a traditional three course meal if you wish with an interesting and eclectic wine list to match. Therefore, customers will soon have a choice between the two menus and will be able to dine as their tastes, budget and appetite dictate.
