Arlingtons has been listed for sale - but taking on this Ipswich institution could set you back £650,000. 

The Museum Street building has been listed with Whybrow Property and Financial Services. 

But while the estate agent said the property is not "actively being marketed", it is believed that Arlingtons remained closed throughout the pandemic, even as other venues began to welcome back customers. 

The restaurant's website is a holding page and social media hasn't been updated since the first lockdown in March 2020. 

The owner was approached for comment.
