Nice to return to the Woolly now that pubs have reopened. We weren’t sure what to expect, but received a warm welcome and a virtually normal sit-down experience. A few small changes for safety’s sake, but nothing which detracted from a lovely meal. Fantastic food, fantastic staff. Thank you!

I ate lunch at the Woolpack on Sunday. I was greeted by Elsie on my arrival, she was so lovely and put all my nerves about social distancing to ease. There were hand sanitisers available, staff maintained social distancing and there was an extremely easy app to order my food from. The staff offered their assistance with the app. The overall environment was spotless and it was clear to see that the staff were following COVID 19 cleaning regiments. The food was divine and great value for money. I would definitely recommend the sticky toffee pudding for dessert! Thank you to our waitress, Evie who was very professional and welcoming. I would 100% recommend the Woolpack and look forward to returning again soon.

The service was a little bit on the slow side but, other than that, we had a lovely family lunch here. In particular, the food was very good. I had an excellent fresh halibut with chips and mushy peas, and then a very nice apple and blackberry crumble for desert. I would definitely go back.

Dining area was good as was service however pre prepared food was under cooked and not very warm.

I judge the level of cleanliness by the toilets unfortunately the Gents toilet was the smelliest place I have been in for years they could obviously do with a good clean and get the flushing system fixed

We love this pub, on this occasion service was a little slow (for food coming out) but the staff were very friendly. Didn’t love my fish sandwich but not sure why. Food is usually lovely! Everyone else was very happy.

We had a lovely Sunday roast here last weekend. Delicious beef and lamb, portion sizes just right. I am gluten free and they couldn’t have been more helpful. Had a rowdy toddler with us and nobody minded at all! Will definitely eat here again 😀

Sadly having eaten here when Hush Heath took it over a couple of times I was expecting a diverse menu and good food. It failed on both. Although they deducted the mains off the bill. I won’t be going back in a hurry. Really really disappointed the standard has dropped so drastically.

We’ve came here a couple of times in the past but only recently started to eat here. And I’m slightly disappointed we never started eating here earlier. The food is AMAZING! The atmosphere is lovely and cosy, and the staff are very friendly. If you’re in the area on a Sunday you’ve got to stop in for a roast, it was the best! Four legged friends welcome in the front restaurant area too.

Not until the quality of the food improves. Shame because the young woman serving was very sweet and the ambiance was great. Also dog-friendly.

Sunday roast was very good quality, cooked to a high standard. The cauliflower mousse base on which the meat rested was a nice touch as was the red cabbage accoutrement. Overall, the vegetables were varied and plentiful. Much appreciated by all of our group (3 persons). The ladies particularly enjoyed the strawberry and apple crumble with strawberry sorbet. If the cooking remains st this level we would definitely consider returning soon.
