Sunday Lunch
THE RED KITE AT WINLATON MILL SERVING A WIDE SELECTION OF DRINKS AND FOOD...
The Red Kite has a new look with new dining areas, new kitchen, coffee service and refurbished rest rooms. All meals are made using fresh, locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. And, with the exception of our bread and ice-cream, everything from the chips to the sauces, are made from scratch on the premises.

Outside the pub there is a large car park area, planting and garden furniture to entice walkers on the Derwent Walk and dogs are very welcome.

The staff were really friendly and super attentive, the music choices were great, so much so that we’re coming back with friends for food and drinks soon because your cheesy hits playlist had me in such a good mood! The food was beautiful, the braised beef on the Sunday dinner was divine!! The mashed potato, the Yorkshire pudding, everything was perfect! Will be recommending and also be returning soon!

I’ve put 3 starts but we didn’t actually get opportunity to get food or drinks.
We sat for 30 minutes waiting but we didn’t not get served so we left the restaurant.

The food was actually really good but the service was absolutely shocking. It took 30 minutes to get served and when the food came it one of the meals was completely spilt on the floor which was fine accidents happen but the staff just left it there on our feet for the rest of the night haha! Lots of unhappy customers as the staff didn’t have a clue

This is a gem of a pub we had booked outside seating but the weather let us down sitting inside was no problem as it was very quiet..
Food was very tasty
We were let down by there being no coffee to round our meal off !

Really nice pub, lovely staff but the food was not great. Its like it was cooked by two different people. Some was over done and some (carrots and parsnip) where rock solid literally couldnt get a folk in.

Visited the Red Kite for Sunday lunch and was very satisfied! The food was delicious. Staff more than happy to help. I have a stomach condition which means I can't eat large portions and the staff were more than happy for me to order a children's roast (some places are funny about that!)

The atmosphere was lovely and we will certainly be returning!

Impromptu visit with husband. Sat outside as it was a lovely day. Staff were friendly, helpful and attentive, despite being understaffed due to current restrictions. Limited vegetarian options, however what we ordered was well prepared and delicious. Will be back and will bring dogs next time.

Enjoyed Sunday lunch. Vegetarian option which is great. Might be nice if they did a fixed price menu to include desert or something similar for the kids. Beer garden looks good, could perhaps do with some fencing or plants to shield from the road and some kids play equipment

The indoors food area was practically empty yet we waited 40 minutes for it to be delivered. some staff were not wearing masks.

I had your fish pie (Salmon, Cod and Prawn) which was not worth the £15.00 I was charged. Not much fish only 1 king prawn. It was mainly potato.

I don't think we will ever come again

Excellent Sunday roast with lots of choices. The selection of beers on tap were less imaginative. Very dog friendly (the waitress brought my greyhound a bowl of water and a treat). Beautiful location to eat outdoors with a view of Derwenthaugh Country Park.

My first ever visit to the red kite. The food was very tasty, nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were all really lovely.
Toilets were very clean, very covid secure place with a lovely beer garden.
We went there for food and drinks after a long walk, i would definately visit again and would highly recommend this lovely, warm and friendly place to anyone.
Thank you for a lovely afternoon 😁
