    Arrived on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was about 3/4 full. Ordered the curry and a fish pie. The madras curry was really nice whilst the fish pie was nothing special but okay. The service was quite slow even allowing for it being relatively busy (an hour before food arrived). We weren’t in a particular hurry but no communication from the staff informing of the wait time on ordering or during the wait until we asked at about the hour mark just before the food actually arrived. The setting itself is nice and prices reasonable for both food and drinks.

    Good overall experience. Staff were friendly and service was pretty good. Music was playing in the background but at a level where you had to concentrate on it to really listen so didn't get in the way of conversation. Food was good pub grub and menu had enough variation for all of us. All 4 people happy with food.

    This was the very worst Sunday Lunch experience of my life. Ingredients were of the poorest cheapest quality available and the preparation of which was equally shocking. The kitchen staff must have been blindfolded not to notice that the Yorkshire Pudding had been cremated.

    Excellent service but food cooked from fresh so expect to wait. My husband said his mashed potato was not cooked to his taste but on the whole I would recommend The Red Kite as a good place to eat.

    Great location next to the Derwent Walk, large beer garden, decent food (burger was a bit disappointing but I’ve had far worse, chips were good, gammon with fresh pineapple was great), good service though a bit slow sometimes (despite it being pretty empty, but they must’ve been understaffed). Noise from busy road outside in the garden and the front, but rear dining overlooking nature was nice. Good place to have lunch and then enjoy the wonderful Derwent walk.

    Let’s get the one negative out of the way… The girl serving us didn’t seem to know the drinks menu, took my order twice then came back to tell me they didn’t sell it… then when we asked about what lager they had we were given the cider list… 🤔 HOWEVER, the food was unreal. I’m very sad I didn’t have room to have a dessert as the Sunday Lunch was so amazing! I had the beef brisket which just melted in your mouth and trust me, you got plenty. They defo need to up their gravy game and be much more generous there, I bloody love gravy and we had to ask for more as did the 2 other tables near to us. All in all the most amazing food and was worth visit.

    The starters were disappointing and overpriced. Whilst the pie main was amazing the other dishes were overpriced and certainly nothing special. But the main problem was they sat us in an over crowded area with dogs and yet when we entered and left there was an abundance of empty tables and space which would have been much more comfortable. It was ridiculous, we left because it was over crowded and too warm ( we skipped the desert menu because of this)
