Good home cooked food in quaint setting.

My husband and I enjoyed a tasty meal here in the beer garden of this friendly pub whilst visiting the village on our way to Canterbury. It is situated at the bottom of The Street, so a little way from the main square of the village (The walk back up the hill to the square may cause a few... read more

Great beer and food that was more than expected from a bar menu. Pub is 100 yards or so from the main square so missed by casual tourists, sweet!

I booked online to request a table for 4 people, as 2 of us need extra space for broken legs, crutches etc. On arrival the girl could barely tear herself from her computer screen to point us towards the empty restaurant (1 pm on a weekday, I should have smelt a rat at that point) The waitress arrived and pointed...

I wanted to let you know how sincerely grateful we are for the wonderful stay we had with you at the Woolpack. The food was absolutely excellent, your staff were fully attentive and helpful and our whole family group later mentioned how comfortable the rooms were. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Woolpack to anyone and hope that one day... More

Done up and with an improved car park, I regret to say I find it lacking in village pub atmosphere. It feels too much like one of those chain pubs - not quite Brewersfayre but you know what I mean. Staff are friendly but unmotivated. Food is quite good. Beer is Shepherd Neame so a bit dull.

Friends took us to the Woolpack for dinner in in June. I really like the fact that dogs are welcome in the pub side of the facility, as we missed our dogs. Waitstaff and the locals were very friendly. The food was delicious. We loved the steak and kidney pie. Delicious and filling.

Turned up on my daughter's birthday for an evening meal. We are not local but visit regulary when visiting Canterbury. They advertised a birthday club, where they issue a voucher for two meals for one. There were three of us plus evidence of birthday, filled in form and I asked if it was possible to use the voucher against this... More

Visited with some friends who know the area, what a lovely English countryside pub in a lovely English Country Village. Very peaceful, chilled. Bar staff were friendly and very helpful and accommodating. Hope to have the opportunity to return on another summer's evening.

Nice cosy pub has a log fire in winter.. Food is a bit posh, prefer more down to earth pub food. Dogs are made welcome.
