My wife and I visited at lunchtime on Saturday for the first time in at least a couple of years - we used to come across to this part of Kent more frequently. We were really delighted that The Woolpack Inn continues to be a success and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Really decent value for money - good portions... More

As always the food was good and at a good price. Though I did think my cod this time was a little on the small side. Also a nice pint of ale. Sadly though the service was slow probably due to staff going back home for Christmas ant not yet returned!! The restaurant was also very cold, radiators and fire... More

Nothing fussy but a good standard fare that you want from a pub. Nice beers, warm and clean, friendly staff. Order at the bar find a seat and food turns up without much delay. Oldish style pub with parking to front which can get busy.

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

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
