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.

    Food OK but service poor probably due to too few staff.

    Nice pub, lovely atmosphere and great choice of wines. However really slow service from the kitchen. Also they said they'd bring the kids food with our starters. The kids food arrived, our starter arrived 15 minutes later when they had finished!!! Then an hour wait until our main courses arrived. Food was very average, a starter of crab and prawns to eat with toasts, but only provided with 2 very very small toasts. A duck main which had meant to have sweet potato chips, substituted with chips sprinkled with paprika, and it was served with a sweet waffle... Which was just weird. The desserts were the best bit, and were really nice. All in all, unless you have over two and half hours to spare (and your children can manage this) I would not recommend the castle for Sunday lunch family dining.
