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.

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

I had pork roast for me and my partner yesterday. They served a burnt Yorkshire pudding that was completely black. The pork was 99% fat ... YUK... When I complained the owner came out and said sorry the chef should not have served the Yorkshire in that condition. Then he started being rude when I pointed out about the large... More

The food was excellent and arrived promptly. We shared a plate of nachos to start - very tasty ... nice and spicy. We all... More
