I guess this is just what happens in small country villages... Felt a bit like an episode of League of Gentleman at times with the locals staring and just that general feeling of being watched all the time... Anyway... We went through to the dining room to eat and were able to choose from the restaurant or bar menu. The... More

Great value for the two course lunch, lovely fire when its cold too. the food is local and homemade and filled us up. The beer was very fresh. Just one little thing is the lady behind the bar didn't seem very happy and we had to keep going to the bar to ask for things. maybe she was having an... More

Food was a game of two halves - great burger, but my mum's 'chicken' pie was actually beef. Pudding was billed as chocolate praline 'millefeuille'. Interesting take on millefeuille - actually a stack of biscuits with a few splodges of what tasted like Nutella. Service was decent, beer good, but sort your food out. Not a million miles from great,... More

I was in a party of 20 walkers, we were probably a bit noisy and a bit confusing with our orders, but the staff were polite and courteous at all times, the food was good value and perfectly cooked and presented. There is a car park at the rear of the pub and beautiful log fires within the pub, stunning... More

We had not been to the Woolpack Inn for at least a year but decided to have lunch last Saturday (20th December) at just after 1 pm. There was a lovely log fire burning in the open hearth and it felt very Christmassy! There were only 3 other groups in the hotel at the time. My wife asked for Gammon... More

I chose The Woolpack Inn for my company Christmas meal. This was a perfect place to have this. A quiet traditional country pub. The service was excellent, the food excellent. The staff were attentive and there were no real problems

My sister and I have lunched here every Christmas for the last five years. She, particularly enjoys this very old, very rustic, pub. The welcome is always warm and the huge log fire sets the winter scene beautifully.This is my 'local' so we are very fortunate to have this historic inn on our doorstep. So...the atmosphere is set. The food... More

Discovering this little village was already a great pleasure, highly complemented by a first class meal. The woolpack inn has very welcoming beautifully Xmasly decorated bar, with a roaring chimney fire and a great choice of spirits (my favourite Lagavulin, not usually available in pubs). Interesting à la carte menu with a great choice of local products. The braised lamb... More

Recently enjoyed a great welcome and an amazing dinner at the Woolpack. Roaring fires, great beer, terrific wine list. The food was actually a bit surprising - pleasantly so! It was brilliant - full of flavour, beautifully cooked but not made overly complicated, and simply presented. Highly recommended! Thanks Nicky, Terry and team
