A colleague and I had lunch yesterday at The Castle. Our servers were Andrew and Aaron. Both are excellent. The food was well prepared and served. The drinks just right.

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.

    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.
