Adjoining the handsome, early neoclassical building that houses the York House Hotel, and just down Drury Lane from the Theatre Royal Wakefield, built by the same 18th-century gentleman, Sloanes Restaurant also takes its cues from classical Italian tradition. As is required for any Yorkshire restaurant that proposes to offer an international cuisine, the chefs here are skilled at adapting the region’s abundance of fresh ingredients to a host of authentic Italian recipes, creating seasonal dishes that are perfectly matched by a considered wine list. Sloanes is perfect for lunch and dinner, or simply drinks and nibbles, in the heart of Wakefield town centre.
We had a lovely meal. The food was delicious and the staff were very attentive. The only drawback was that we were about the only ones in and it was a Friday evening. We have done Trip Advisor so, hopefully, more people will go, as it really is worth it.
We have been going to this restaurant for years,it has changed hands a few times but we think it is better now than ever.The food is always good and well presented and the staff are lovely,inside is a lovely setting and the outside area is nice to sit on warm nights,can't fault it.
Excellent meal and one of the best gluten free menus around with so much to choose from - well done! Definitely will be visiting again.
Sloanes throws a very pleasurable curveball when it comes to the atmosphere of the restaurant’s home down Drury Lane in the town centre in that its imposing exterior gives way to a sophisticated and modern interior, with a dining room brightly lit by a large skylight and dotted with plants. The Mediterranean vibe of the decor translates, of course, to the superlative – and extensive – selection of Italian food on offer, spread over many menus to suit any occasion. Early bird menus tempt Wakefield locals and fans from across Yorkshire to the restaurant for a great value meal, while two- and three-course set menus are served from Mondays to Thursdays, offering a similarly affordable glimpse into Sloane’s offering.
Even Sloanes Sunday lunch menu bucks the trend maintained by most Yorkshire hotel restaurants by offering a classic roast-and-sundries feast with a pronounced Italian twist. However, the real lure to what has to be one of Wakefield’s best and most conveniently located Italian restaurants is the full a la carte menu, a comprehensive and classically-structured selection that also includes a range of signature chargrilled steaks, meats and poultry. Another great way to dine at this restaurant, close to all of the town centre’s amenities and landmarks, is to order a couple of Sloanes popular pizzas and kick back with a drink on the terrace, especially when Yorkshire decides to bless us with a little sunshine!
