Nice pub. not sure about the honesty of the place.

Well we came here for a wedding reception. The actual place looked and seemed nice. However...the bar staff failed to tell guests that there was a bar tab and hence charged people for their drinks, (saw one member of staff pocket money he had just taken from a guest!). The 'buffet' that was... read more

Just got back from a lovely meal at the woolpack. Having been here before and been impressed I knew it would be good. Food presented well, good service and nice environment- well worth a visit.

A fantastic pub, great atmosphere and welcoming staff. The food is amazing, the menu has a wide variety of tasty dishes that are all cooked to order. The pub garden is large and enclosed for the children to play in while the adults can relax and enjoy a drink or two. I can't recommend highly enough!

I have been a regular visitor for many years to The Woolpack and have never found the need to write a review, however our last two visits have left me dissapointed with the food. My wife always accompanies me and the last two visits we both agreed that the food standard had dropped. I had home made pie which I... More

We visit The Woolpack regularly and I can honestly say that we have NEVER had a bad experience. The staff are all very friendly,nothing is too much trouble and the food is of a consistently high standard. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Woolpack to anyone and say a very big Thank You to Graham and his team.

Lovely to find somewhere that cooks home food to a fantastic standard. The service was slick and very attentive,all the food was presented well and nothing was too much trouble. I had the anti pasti and there was enough for 2! King prawn risotto was full of flavour and my wife's pork belly was crispy and cooked to perfection. Dessert... More

We visited the Woolpack last week for the first time. We had heard lots of good reviews from different people and thought that we would give it a try! As we walked in, we were met by a very friendly chap (who we assumed was the landlord) and we were very impressed with the eclectic interior and the all round... More

My family and I visit her regularly. The food is good home cooked food and it has a great menu to choose from. The nachos starters are my husbands favourite and I love the battered fish and chips. The staff are friendly and very helpful. We have booked the separate room for two family functions in the past year and... More
