Restaurant description

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.

    We entered the Castle to be greeted by the bar person, she was a little bit brusque, asked what we wanted to drink, not if we were there to dine. The table we went to sit at had a spillage on it, I went to the bar and asked if they had a cloth to wipe the table, she gave me some blue tissue paper and a spray bottle. She didn't say, I'll do it or get someone to do it, it looked like I was doing it myself. A male bar tender/waiter said that he would come and do it. We sat down and chatted over our drinks. When we decided to go to the restaurant, we stood and waited for someone to show us to our table, it took a little while before someone came over. He then went to the table, didn't ask us to follow. We went through, sat at the table where he was putting the menus. After that, all went well. The waitress who looked after us did exactly that. The food was lovely, nicely cooked and very flavoursome. A nice amount of time in between courses and not at all rushed. just the way I like it.
