Having stuffed ourselves silly in Canterbury over the half term week-end, we went to Chilham to see the pretty and unique village, and have a decent country walk to work up an appetite for lunch at the Woolpack. Well we couldn't master up much of an appetite, but what food we had was delicious. Had a special of the blackboard... More

We booked overnight accommodation for 15 at this pub for my husbands 40th last weekend. The area suffered a power cut about 6pm, but despite this the managers were able to keep calm and ensured the family had a pleasant evening. We were offered a take away in the instance that the power was not restored during the stormy weather,... More

Once again had a great meal at the Woolpack Inn at Chilham. Went with a group of 6 adults and 6 children for Sunday lunch after a lovely walk in the Kent countryside. We turned up late but they welcomed us and had saved our reserved table in restaurant for us. Staff friendly, food excellent and a great time had... More

Possibly the best garlic mushrooms we have ever had - absolutely amazing, and the garlic ciabatta was perfection. Followed by the fishcakes which were cooked perfectly it was some of the best food we have had. We eat out a lot and this food will take some beating. The service is friendly, the bar is cosy, the restaurant is clean... More

If you want to feel content but not stuffed and you want to feel as though you haven't eaten a load of junk food, choose the veggie burger which is a portabello mushroom with all the trimmings. They were more than accommodating to replace the chips with mash which was great :o) beautiful village and by far the best pub... More

Fed up with mickey mouse portions? Fancy service ? Dishes with more flavours than you can identify? This then is a venue for you. Well presented honest dishes suited to sensible appetites, served without fake pleasantries andflavours that compliment each other well. An ideal business luncheon for two directors away from the office. We chose the mixed grill and a... More
