Within the expansive Calder Park, The Red Kite awaits your discovery for your next meal out. This picturesque sanctuary sprawls across more than 100 acres, serving as a serene habitat for a variety of wildlife. Frequent visits from graceful swans, playful ducks, and other captivating wildfowl add to the enchanting allure of this natural haven - how beautiful for your dining surroundings. Situated in the heart of Wakefield, a city renowned as the capital of the Rhubarb Triangle, The Red Kite proudly embraces the region's unique association with early forced rhubarb. To commemorate this intriguing claim to fame, an alluring statue was unveiled in July 2005, standing near the pub as a whimsical testament to the area's rich history and the delectable bounty it continues to yield.

The Red Kite pays a heartwarming tribute to cherished classics and country pub favourites, reflecting the quintessential Vintage Inns style. The menu here is an invitation to indulge in time-honoured dishes, showcasing the enduring appeal of hearty comfort food. Among the offerings, you'll find an irresistible steak and mushroom pie, a beloved beer-battered fish and chips, and a variety of seasonal surprises that promise to ignite your taste buds with their unique flavours and culinary delights.

From dawn till dusk, the all-day menu presents an array of beloved British classics. Start your culinary journey with a delectable smoked mackerel pâté, served with horseradish crème fraîche and toasted bread, or savour the slow-roasted tomato arancini, a crispy delight. For a heartier appetite, opt for the oven-baked chicken breast, nestled on a bed of fresh spinach, and adorned with a rich wild mushroom and garlic sauce. Crowned with streaky bacon and melted mozzarella, it's accompanied by a generous helping of skin-on fries.
