Having attended a number of different events at the Arlington over the last 2 years I must say the Events have been superbly managed and very successful. The food has always been first class, certainly equal to any of the top restaurants in the area. No matter how busy the staff always have everything under control. There is no other venue that can compete.

Went last night to Club Classics/Martin Day event. The music was epic! We danced all night and had a fabulous time! Thanks to Ben and Ollie behind the bar for putting up with our banter and making getting a drink fun! 😉

We had our engagement party here, and yesterday we had a truly magical day from start to finish with our wedding. The venue looked incredible, my facebook has gone wild today with wonderful comments of how stunning it was.
Everything about our wedding was just amazing, from the venue, to the delicious food, to the staff who were attentive and professional, you were completely on point with every little detail.
I can’t thank you enough for an incredible day and evening ❤️ 

lots of love Jodie & Nicole.

The Arlington is a fabulous venue for weddings, we had the best day! Yvette and the team were very attentive from the start and made us feel very special, and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The day went very smoothly with Paul quietly choreographing in the background. We had both the ceremony and wedding breakfast there, with photographs taken outside with our guests. The Arlington frontage gives a lovely back drop for photographs, after which we went to Chalkwell Park for more pictures. The room looked amazing with lovely lighting and white table linen. We had many positive comments about the food from our guests. It was wonderful. Top quality meat and fish and very generous portion sizes. I cannot recommend The Arlington highly enough – wonderful!

We had our wedding reception at The Arlington Rooms on Saturday 15th September. Had an absolutely brilliant night! The staff were great and the whole atmosphere was excellent! 
From the start of organising the event, Yvette was very helpful and always responded to emails straight away. The staff made the evening absolutely perfect and couldn’t have asked for anything more.

I had my 40th here, lovely art deco building. The guests all commented on how amazing it looks since the refurb.

The staff were all superb the planners and GM are bang on and the food was really good.

I couldn't have asked for a better night or venue for my party. Not sure it would have been as good if I had the party somewhere else.

Amazing party venue and I would recommend it to anyone.

We would just like to say thank you and how very grateful we were for the time you spent with us planning the day. The advice on how to make sure the day flowed and that we had enough time to put in all our personal touches helped to focus our minds and gave us confidence our plans would be achieved.

The day itself was how we hoped, the food was delicious with many of our guests commenting on how they enjoyed their meal, it was served quickly and efficiently by the serving staff.

We are so pleased we chose The Arlington for our wedding and would recommend it to anyone wishing to hire a beautiful and stylish venue which is efficiently managed and staffed.

Thank you all once again for all your help, advice and professionalism and we hope to visit you again for future events.

We would like to offer our sincere thanks to you and all of the staff for hosting our wedding on Friday. We cannot praise you all enough for the attention to details and the coordination that took place to ensure the day ran smoothly. The waiting staff were so friendly and the management were just amazing! The resident DJ did a great job and the dance floor was never empty.

We wanted to pass on our thanks to you and highlight what an excellent service we received from Paul, Yvette and the rest of the team for our wedding reception.

Yvette was very helpful and understanding whilst we were planning the event and gave us excellent advice along the way. She was welcoming and set out everything perfectly in the room on the day.

Paul was fantastic, attentive but not intrusive, without anything being too much trouble. He would put any maitre'd to shame.

The food was of a high standard, well presented and served excellently.

We were both very impressed with every aspect of the venue, but your staff were even better than that.

Everything was just perfect and we really do have you and your team to thank for that as the service provided really was above and beyond what we expected, from start to finish.
