Our “small plates” menu makes for a wonderfully flexible (and tasty!) dining experience. Fancy a light lunch? Then two dishes will be perfect. Really hungry? No problem, simply order more, share and enjoy. Feel free to mix and match and share between friends, the emphasis is on enjoying great food in a great location. From weddings and birthdays through to meetings and seminars, Arlingtons is a great choice. We can accommodate up to 150 guests, organise entertainment, offer a choice of menus, provide teas, coffees,
