About our venue

Situated on the outskirts of Darlington, next to the supermarket, in a quiet residential area, the Shuttle & Loom is a large pub with a friendly atmosphere. Refurbished early 2014 inside has quite a modern feel about it and we have a great outdoor area including a slide in the children's outdoor play area. Our customers can relax with a drink or a delicious meal in comfortable, light and airy surroundings. The pub has three rooms - a bar where we show sport on the big screen, a lounge and a family area. We have an inside soft play area for young children and an outside play area for the older kids. This is a very good sports pub and one where excellent value food and drink can be had. Our friendly staff and regulars look forward to welcoming you.
