What a lovely pub packed with charm and excellent service.

Having driven past this charming looking pub many times but never venturing in, it was meant to be when groupon offered a breakfast deal there. My wife and I got there as they opened at 09.30 and were greeted warmly by the Landlord. We told him we were redeeming the groupon voucher and he... read more

We used to love The Woolpack but avoided it for a few years due to bad management and poor quality food. Returned for the first time this week (week day lunch) and was thrilled to see its back on form. Very well presented, food was delicious and service great. So glad to see its doing well again and hope they... More

All the right signs are there before you step inside...this is about *great quality* and your expectations are met. An old pub lovingly styled and presented with odd chairs and tables, standard lamps, a shelf of games and a piano - and an ever growing regular clientele. Blackboards with delicious daily specials in addition to the variety on the menu... More

Popped into this lovely pub for Sunday lunch. They were really busy and we had to wait for a table - at this point the lovely girls behind the bar were amazing. They kept us informed and advised us as soon as a table came free. Nothing was too much trouble and even though we had never been there before... More

Came here for my sisters birthday, he food was brilliant - not lots of choice on the menu but every dish we had was tasty and met with great compliments. They accommodated me taking along a gluten free roll for a burger too. We were seated in a small room which was perfect, nice and cosy and full of sunshine!... More

The scotch eggs are amazing and the sausage rolls are as good as you'll ever get. Try the food if you find yourself there .

We have been regulars here for quite sometime and I have to say the current owner has it absolutely spot on. The menu is quite extensive and of a really excellent quality .Bar snacks vary from homemade scotch eggs, Cornish pasties and sausage rolls ,these are all home made and really tasty. We feel very at home there and occasionally... More

This place should have more recognition. My sister-in-law and I came here for an impromptu lunch as we needed somewhere to park (for baby), now although there is no ramp to get in to the pub the barman saw us approach outside and was there to offer a hand in wheeling the buggy in. Once in we found a cosy... More
