Took a customer here for lunch. Lovely food, nothing fancy but cooked very well. The decor is very traditional with a great atmosphere. Would definitely return!

This place is most of what anyone would want from a country pub / inn. Good Location, in village, near train station, just off the main road. Comfortable accommodation, nicely decorated and pristine clean. Only down side is try to avoid rooms 7 and 8 on ground floor as the sound proofing to the upstairs rooms is not great. Breakfast...

We stopped for lunch as the Trip Advisor reviews were good. My partner had the steak and ale pie which was lovely and rich and the chips exactly as they should be - crispy on the outside, nice and fluffy on the inside. I had the smoked haddock risotto which was beautiful - would definitely have it again if ever... More

We visited the Woolpack after some good reviews on here. The restaurant side, although very warm was a great room and had a good atmosphere. The food lived up to the reviews and was really fresh and tasty. The bar side was a little unwelcoming and we felt like 'strangers in the village' but in the main it is well... More

Took my niece and her family for a Kent pub lunch. Food was great, freshly cooked and my fish and chips were beautifully crisp and hot. Service was excellent. nice garden with sunshades on the tables.My niece is a vegetarian and doesn't eat any meat or fish so there is sometimes a limited amount of items on the menu at... More

We stayed for two nights in a chalet at the inn and our dogs came with us! The restaurant served very tasty traditional pub food and it was nice to sit out in the garden later. Breakfast was good too!

We visited here as looking for a nice venue for a meal with friends in a couple of weeks time. Hadn't visited before and on entering the pub seemed okay but fairly empty however we realised then that there were several people eating in the garden. Checked out the menu and good choices but fairly expensive compared to other local... More

Gorgeous food. Staff friendly and approachable. We had a small child with us, she was well accommodated and we had a wheelchair user, also well accommodated. Couldn't fault it. Nice wine and nice food. Is fairly pricey but worth it.

The area to the left of the fireplace and next to the men's loos entrance has been changed but... More

First of all the positives, this Inn is in a lovely picturesque village with great rail links to Canterbury (station about 10 minutes away). The staff are friendly and the food is good. Unfortunately the thing that lets this establishment down is the accommodation. Our room was across the road from the Inn, number 17 in a block of 3... More
