I was surprised, the meal was excellent!

Visited as a party of 10 for a family birthday and wasn't expecting much after a previous visit several years ago. However there must have been a change in ownership as I was pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. My Lamb Shank was honestly one of the best I've had and everyone said they... read more

Seven of us met for a late festive lunch at the busy Woolpack Pub on the 21st January. Everyone liked the varied menu choices, using locally sourced ingredients where possible, but not too big a menu that you wonder how it could be all freshly prepared? Graham, along with his very friendly and helpful staff made us all feel really... More

Nice pub, well decorated. Managed to slot us in as we hadn't booked for Sunday lunch. Meal was good, caliliflower cheese wasn't very cheesy and undercooked. Everything else was great and the beef was top quality. Service excellent and the landlady very friendly.
