Solombala-English, or Solombala English–Russian Pidgin, is a little-known pidgin, derived from both English and Russian, that was spoken in the port of Solombala in the neighborhood of Arkhangelsk (Archangel), Russia in the 18th and 19th centuries.

The known Solombala-English corpus consists of only two short 19th-century texts: one in Очерки Архангельской губернии (Sketches from Arkhangelsk governorate) by Vasilij Vereščagin from 1849, and one in Архангельские Губернские Ведомости (Arkhangelsk Governorate News) from 1867.
