I stayed at the Darlington for 2 months whilst working locally. The pub is made by the great staff. Alison the landlady is a wonderful host who cooks delicious food and nothing is too much of a problem. The barman Aaron is a really entertaining guy and is a great asset to have behind the bar he especially knows what... More

We didn't stay at the Darlington but we did have dinner here one evening. We all enjoyed an excellent roast dinner in the dining room which was excellent value. Would eat here again when we are next in Camelford.

The Darlo, as the natives call it, has always played second fiddle to The Masons Arms. It was closed for ages but was revamped and the accommodation upgraded. I like it as a quieter alternative to The Masons and find that the owners try hard to please the punters. There's a decent selection of Cornish ales and lagers. The food... More

This is the nearest I have weber been to Fawley Towers. I Can forgive the fact that they forgot I was coming, though sitting in my sweaty cycling gear for 40 minutes while they sorted out a room wasn't much fun. The barmaid was lovely, and this 13th century Inn would have been lovely too if they didn't have cheesy... More

Nice people but slow service. Waited over an hour for food but they weren't busy as there was only one other dining. When the food did come all I can say is thank god the had napkins. greasy is an understatement. It was more like a heart attack on a plate.

We have driven past this pub many times over the years and have always wanted to visit. We finally stopped off with great expectations and were slightly disappointed. The bar is in desperate need of updating and is untidy with some random things around. However, we couldn't fault the friendliness of the landlady and the burgers were delicious. There are... More

We stumbled into this little treasure on the Aug bank holiday week-end 2013. Oh what a find after looking for accommodation for miles. When we arrived we were welcomed by Harry a lovely young guy who couldn't help us enough, The rooms where fabulous. We went down for dinner and we met the hostess Alison who was just fabulous, she...

We walked in just at opening time and asked if pasties were available. They weren't, but the landlord sent us next door to the pasty shop and then provided us with plates and sauces (which we didn't actually need, because the pasties were so delicious and perfectly-seasoned). We washed them down with local real ale. Heaven! The atmosphere was friendly... More

This must be where the locals of Camelford go, the masons arms appears to be the tourist trap and Darlington is the local. We wandered in one evening, to be hit by loud music and lots of youngsters at the bar, as we walked in it was like the scene from An America Werewolf in London, when the 2 lads... More

Sometimes you find a place that you simply have to write about. The Darlington sits smack in the centre of Camelford right on the A39. The beer is well kept, Doom Bar and Tribute ales, but the real value is the staff and the food. There is the charismatic but disorganised Arran behind the bar and the charming and talented... More
