I had the steak and kidney pudding, it was delicious. This is a proper suet pudding not a pie and it makes all the difference. I totally recommend this dish. It is the best pudding I have had, and I have eaten plenty. The service is friendly and the beer is at a good temperature- everything you could ask for

Good honest pub food. Nice, hearty and wholesome. Went with friends as an end to a day of business meeting and it was great.

Fantastic menus to choose from. We were surprised. In addition to being a typical English pub it has a long list of traditional Spanish meals. We are a Spanish couple and our dish selection reminded us of true Spanish cuisine. The welcome was warm and the staff were really attentive which made for an enjoyable lunch time. Congratulations to the... More

Decided to arrive about 12 noon as it was a Friday. Good job we did, because within 10 minutes the place was nearly half full. Always a good sign We were greeted warmly and decided on our meals, of scampi& chips for my wife and beef & ale pie for myself. The number of scampi almost beat my wife there... More

We have visited The Woolpack Inn a couple of times before; the last being a Friday lunchtime a couple of weeks ago. The pub itself is lovely with a traditional homely feel to it, and although there is a lovely log fire, it is better to eat away from this as it can be rather smokey. The food itself was... More

Family members have been here a number of times and enjoyed it. We went last night to celebrate a family birthday and were very under whelmed by our experience. Starter menu looked nice but prawn cocktail was bland and the pate had no taste. Typical pub grub main menu, nothing very exciting. My burger came out first but I waited... More

Whilst the pub itself remains the same charming place unfortunately the menu and quality of the food has deteriorated.. it's not as good as it used to and quite frankly not good value for Money any longer.. however it's a lovely...
