Presumably named in homage of Darlington’s industrial past – Darlington was the birthplace of the first passenger locomotive – Carriages Bar at the Mercure Kings Hotel is the perfect stop-off for a quick business lunch and an excellent destination from which to kick-start your night out.
Recently refurbished, this upscale bar adds plenty of pizazz to Darlington’s town centre. Plush baroque bar stools surround a beautiful marble topped bar, from which an excellent selection of cocktails are served. Chandeliers add sophisticated ambience, and the large windows provide drinkers and diners with one of the best people-watching spots Darlington has to offer.
The menu boasts a satisfying selection of smaller nibbles, sharing boards, starters and mains. There's a mouth-watering array of handmade burgers on offer, all served with fries, as well as superfood salads, pizzas and grilled meats. For some real indulgence, diners can dig into one of the Kings Hotel's exquisite desserts, swilled down with a glass of Prosecco or two.
Located just off of the High Row, opposite the Corn Mill Shopping Centre and a few minutes’ walk from Darlington’s railway station, there’s no better location to bed down for the night. But even if you’re not an overnight guest at the King’s Hotel, as a tastecard member you can now enjoy a excellent value multi-course meal inside the Carriages Bar.
Open seven days a week from morning until late and providing free wifi for all those who need it, Carriages Bar is a cosy yet classy hideaway in the very centre of Darlington.
Please Note: this tastecard offer is not available on bank holidays, special celebration days such as, but not limited to, Mother's Day, Father's Day and Valentine's Day, or throughout December. The offer only applies to the bar's main food menu and drinks are not included.
