About Us

Welcome to The Comet – Darlington

Lesley Jones has successfully ran the Comet for 2 years and with it she brings a sense of fun to the pub with her love of objects which you see upon entering the pub and restaurant.

This is a free house offering many fine ales, draught beers and spirits as well as a good stock of quality wines.

Many years ago it was an old coaching house used as a stop off point.

Lesley gained previous experience in the hospitality business having worked at Crombies restaurant in Darlington for 24 years. She has also completed a chef’s course so that she can be hands on with all the locally sourced, good quality food she serves.

We’re proud to be in the Good Beer Guide 2016!

This is a local country pub offering a friendly service and good quality traditional home cooked foods.
