The Woolly has gone slightly upmarket under its new ownership, without losing its essential character as an ancient inn. The food, furnishings and crockery are now quite sophisticated. The Hush Heath wines are on form - not cheap (good English wine never is) but the Lesley's chardonnay brut and Luke's pinot noir well worth drinking - and the Old Dairy beer is as good as ever.

We found the food expensive, four items that we ordered including the wine were not available and the gypsy tart was hard and tastless and at £7.00 was poor.
The staff were lovely and the apartment we had was nice although has loads of stairs not for the older person. It's a shame but we would not rush back as the food let it down.

We booked last minute after seeing the Salmon Waldorf salad on the menu and it was really good. We had a really good meal it’s just a pity it was not busier but if we were here longer we would be back

Everything was very good but I only gave 4 stars for overall because I don’t approve of dogs in an eating area and there were 2 near me. Otherwise a very enjoyable experience and I would recommend it.

Adequate service - pleasant starters, but the main course was dismal - especially considering the price! The roast potatoes were barely warm, the vegetables looked and tasted like they had been cooked considerably earlier and were very unappetising. The green veg dish was barely warm and meagre. The vegetarian option looked like it had been kept warm all day, but tasted vaguely better. Definitely will not be high on our list for a return meal!

We had a lovely evening dining at the Woolpack Inn. The wine list was extensive with an option to suit every budget. Starter/Small plate was amazing, I had the pulled pork taco and my wife had the pork belly. Both dishes blew our taste buds, absolutely delicious. Main menu had lots of options, again it was delicious. I had the burger and my partner the fish and chips. Dessert menu was abit of a let down, I went for the blueberry and candy bacon sundae which wasn’t to my taste but whatever floats your boat! We’ll definitely be back.

Staff were brilliant. Ambience brilliant. Mains and choice of wine brilliant. Desserts were disappointing. The affogatos were not good. I would suggest serving the espresso in a small jug separately over the ice cream
. The Victoria sponge sundae was lacking fruit and substituted with fruit syrup. Sort the desserts out and it would be five stars all round. All said we would definetly return. Thankyou for a good evening.

A great place to eat and drink. The only problem on this occasion was that the wrong meals were delivered to two of us and whilst this was efficiently rectified it did mean we had a staggered lunch. The food and the overall experience were very good and we will be back.
