Useful info about The Castle

The Castle is a traditional village pub & restaurant in Wakefield serving tasty, freshly cooked food and top-drawer drinks, with a log-fire when it's chilly and a great beer garden for the warmer weather.

You'll find us on the Barnsley Road in the historic suburb of Sandal, just a couple of miles south of Wakefield and a short drive from Walton, Crigglestone and Durkar.
