Excellent food, excellent service.The landlord couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful - we presented him with quite a challenge seating wise: one wheelchair one highchair and six people and he sorted it immediately. Would definitely recommend

Requested tap water with meal but was told 'Do you know what it tastes like!" and replied Yes as live in this area but...was never brought the water. This actually put my friend and I off and would not go again.

Had to organise a post funeral reception and The Woolpack was suggested as a possible venue. It is only a 6 or 7 minute drive from West Suffolk Crematorium and the side room was perfect for two dozen people. Graham the Landlord laid on a finger buffet which was of good standard. If you need a small venue for such... More

The staff were helpful and friendly and the food and drinks excellent. Many many thanks for all... More

I cannot believe just how low the standards are in this pub, considering the price of the food! The curries are the same terrible things served in pubs like weather spoons and the like. The vegetables must have been cooked the day before if not longer as they were going off. The service was slow as they didn't have many... More
