Great pub professional service
Aug 2020 • Friends
Went here for a few beers on a Saturday afternoon. My first proper visit since the refurbishment and lockdown. My reservations about prices going up because of it being taken over by hush heath winery were quickly put to rest as all beers were very reasonable. Staff were very professional, hard working, polite and engaging. Others in the pub were eating and there with families and from what I saw the staff went out of their way to make sure they were happy and enjoying their food. Talking about the food it looked very nice. Top end pub food presented very well. I'll definitely have to eat here soon as other friends have said it's worth a visit for food. The pub refurbishment itself is subtle but for the better. Still retaining the character of the building but opening up the pub a bit and tidying everything up. The toilets have also had a much needed refurbishment. All in all I'll definitely be going back and would have to nit pick to fault the place.

Great Old English Pub that is leaving money on the table
I had a beer here with a mate, recently, and the pub seemed bare and cold - wooden seats, wooden floors. Maybe it needed more people. I have had a beer here in summer and out in the street is OK but for whatever reason its a basic buy a drink experience. Given its central location and proximity to the large church you think they would work that angle and be more imaginative or cosmopolitan. I decided the Vine or the White Lion had a more welcoming and warm experience. Pity. If I had the license I'd make it more than beer, crisps or pork scratchings.

Admittedly, I've never been there when its full and I have never eaten there. I decided to go elsewhere for a meal after my beer. Pity, as I say it has so much potential going begging.

It’s alright
Dec 2019 • Friends
Been coming for some time now and the staff have upgraded and are bloody wonderful. Same can’t be said about the toilets. Regularly been served by a polite young boy called Nancy. Bar man with the receding hairline (Charlene) has also been very pleasant and happy to help. Couple of staff members are a bit odd but it’s a quirky place and just love being in there. Food is banging although the burger relish isn’t what it used to be but a minor issue in the grand scheme of things. Bar workers who I think are called Alfina and Molly always uphold high levels of politeness and are happy to do whatever is asked and nothing seems to much. Food overall good and beer selections are ideal. Landlord George is a good crack and remains professional and engages in conversations with public and can’t be faulted. Games selections are dead and could do with a fruity. A stand alone chess table would be perfect to finish it off however the over blinged Xmas tree prevents a safe place to play. Could do with a cocktail list of actual cocktails to liven up my lips on a Saturday however this isn’t an option. Overall great staff, nice building and will be great when the barn is open for dutty whining.

A good, old-fashioned pub
Nov 2019
A good, old-fashioned pub with beamed ceilings, wooden floors and some barrels for tables. The staff are very attentive and helpful and the service is quick and efficient. There's a good choice of drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. An added bonus is that it is dog friendly. I would certainly recommend The Woolpack to anyone looking for a drink in a friendly hostelry in Tenterden.

Dogs on the loose
Good beer and ambience spoilt by big dog unleashed laying on the floor. A trip hazard for anyone but especially the visually impaired. Why don't management insist on dogs on leads kept close to owners?

Xmas Eve lunch
Dec 2017 • Family
Wonderful! Cosy, friendly and very delicious (unpretentious) food! We love it here and have been twice now, think it’s our new Christmas pub! Even saw a well-known face in their chilling. Tenterden is a lovely town to visit and one of our favourites!

Best Pub in Tenterden
Mar 2017 • Couples
Possibly a little biased as this is now my local pub, in fact I have used this as my local since before moving to Tenterden. A great pub for just about any occasion, I have used the Woolpack for many things such as a quick drink, evenings out, family meals, a place to stay and even held my wedding reception in the barn/function room out the back.

The pub has a unique charm and is a far cry from the modern chain pubs where you could be just about anywhere in the country. With a quirky charm of it's own the Woolpack is a great place to visit.
