The Red Kite
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.

Food and the service we got in the day was fantastic. Will definitely be going back in the future. Highly recommended.
Amazing staff and service!!! Sunday dinner was the best we've had in a long time. Keep up the good work! We will definately be back.
We sat outside, we were served quickly, staff were polite and friendly.
Meal was lovely, will definitely go back
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!
Food was excellent and the waiting staff were all very polite and helpful.
Went as a group of 4 plus 2 dogs. Food was great and very dog friendly! Will definitely be returning!
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
Sea bass was lovely with crispy skin and healthy green veg
Lovely food great service, very attentive staff. Will definitely be back.
Great food and service
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!
Waited nearly 45mins from starter to mains.Had to ask waitress what was going on
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.
Lovely food, service was excellent, staff very friendly. Reasonably priced.
Lovely dog friendly pub with good food and good service.
(didn't order food). Decent service, nice atmosphere.
Great, wholesome food. Fab service. Couldn't fault it.
Tasty food with friendly staff looking forward to returning.
Really lovely fish a chips, light batter and fresh fish…… definately eat there again
Nice setting, staff were helpful and asked about allergens. Food was very delayed, additionally my option was replaced.
Amazing burgers, good portion size, friendly staff and lovely outdoor area.
Lovely food! Will definitely be back and will recommend!!
Same menu as the Woodmans,same choices but not as good hopefully it will catch up to the quality of the Woodmans
Food was excellent and staff were very friendly and worked extremely hard
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
Met some friends for catch up. Food was lovely, staff were lovely, had a lovely afternoon.
Really lovely food would definitely recommend. The parking could be better though. My husband is disabled and finds the walk up very difficult.
Gorgeous Sunday lunch! Probably the best nut roast I’ve ever tasted!
The food was wonderful, we had Sunday dinner which was delicious. We will definitely be coming back
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
Lovely food which was served reasonably quickly. Not a great choice on the childrens menu. Food was hot and tasty. Would visit again
Now quite a bit more pricey than it was, consequently little atmosphere as empty
Staff very attentive food served swiftly and hot
No coffee or tea available today as waiting for new machine
But will definitely go 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.
Nice beer garden with plenty of tables.
Staff friendly and polite.
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 😁
delicious food great price and even better service
