Located just a few streets away from the ruins of Sandal Castle, The Castle – Wakefield is a restored village pub serving a menu of seasonal, modern British dishes. Boasting a terrace for al fresco dining in warm weather, the mismatched chairs, assorted wall art & fireplaces make the restaurant inside a cosy retreat during the winter.

Sourcing ingredients from trusted local suppliers, The Castle menu features wholesome recipes based around the garden, land and sea. Sample hand-pressed burgers, beef & ale pie with cardamom carrots, or sea bass with potato gnocchi, while old-school puddings include warming crumbles, custard-lathered sponges and decadent brownies. Not forgetting younger diners, a kids’ menu includes miniature versions of British classics.

A partnership with the celebrated Rothschild wine merchants means The Castle - Wakefield cellar is stocked full with an eclectic list of world wines, while indulgent wine flights allow guests to sample a variety of bins. Seasonal beers and barrel-kept ales also feature, as well as thirst-quenching cocktails and rich coffees.

The Castle in West Yorkshire is a 12-minute walk from Sandal & Agbrigg Rail Station.

    Friendly and attentive staff. Especially, Lucy, who was our server and Aaron who welcomed us and conducted us to our table. Excellent food. Well cooked and presented. The wine was reasonably priced and served at the right temperature.

    Firstly the staff were most welcoming and attentive to our requirements. The meal was first class. We have never had a bad meal at the castle and we have been about 4 or 5 times.
