Though both daughters away, my wife took me here for a fathers day treat with another couple. Though we were the last to order, the Sunday lunch that arrived was very good, Meat, beef and not overdone as I like it fairly rare. Hot vegetables and not overdone, in fact it was like it was the first... read more

Four years ago I rote a terrible review regarding a meal we had at the Woolpack and it was so bad that it prompted me to sign up with Trip Advisor. About eighteen months ago I was told that it was much better and I have now been back several times and found it to be very good. On Sunday... More

We arrived without booking about 8.30 on a Saturday night - they were fabulous. You can change the menu around if you want, service was great and quick and the food was lovely. Will definitely be going again.

Nice food with pleasant staff. Great 8 ounce burgers and home cooked pies. Wash them down with IPA. A bit of a chat with the landlord spot on.

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 provided consisted of a few brought pizzas,... 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
