|Was last here a couple of years ago, at the time we felt the freehouse offered tremendous quality, value & a vibrant friendly atmosphere.|
On the grapevine we'd heard a few rumbles of discontent over the past few months & having enjoyed it so much before I felt it fair to reacquaint ourselves .
What a dreadful mistake!
Cloudy Ales served too warm for my palette & cold tasteless grub punching well below the apparent 'Award Winning Chefs' assumed credentials. Service was friendly but ineffectual & I don't wonder if this is the first hospitality business run by these charlatans?
Hey ho, seems like the folks reviewing the Woolpack on Trip Advisor have a point!

|I visited in November 2012 on my way to the coast. I picked the pub at random for a lunch stop. What a find ! Firstly the pub itself which is off the beaten track but well worth the short detour from the 'A' road. Second, the building, beautiful old place in a rural setting opposite the old church. But best off all inside, a tremendous welcome, lovely freshly prepared and cooked food and great real ales . I would heartily recommend it. The new owners are very enthusiastic and very capable.|

|As you will see from a previous review, I have used this pub for many years. Not a regular visitor, but I do pass every 2 or 3 months. One of these visits was a couple of weeks back and once again the place seems to be under new owners. We ordered a simpe burger and chips and onion rings. The chips and onoins rings were seeped in so much oil we couldn't eat them, and it took over an hour to come out even though there was only one other couple eating.|
However what put me off even more was the landlords attitude towards the staff and his wife. He was astoundingly rude, and this attitude appeared to have carried over to his customers as well.
After 9 years of visiting this pub I will finally call it a day, bad food, bad atmosphere.

|First off the beer was fine ....|
That said although I seldom comment on food I feel I must redress the balance here..
The homemade beef and ale pie which we ordered is of the round individual type .. ours was full of gristle of the kind one usually cuts off the edge of a rump steak......this served with chips, salad and gravy with an overall cheesy aroma .....!!!!
£10.50 if this is your bag...
I note since the new owners that two of the three reviews are one off postings ...
Conclude what you will ...

|We heard the Woolpack was back on the scene a few months ago with a new team of ex pat Australians having opened in October 2010 but we hadn't anticipated such a quick turnaround from the previous incarnations! |
Lo and behold we dropped by for an inspection last friday night and couldn't even get a table initially, the front room was filled to the oak beams. So we took a couple of half 's of Rother Valley's Boadicea, a delightful drop i might add and assumed our position at the bar in the hope of a table becoming available and soaked up the warmth of the freshly decorated room . Sometimes I find a candle lit atmosphere a tad on the gloomy side but here its just right. 15 minutes later we were sat down menu's in hand on our second half of the Goacher's fine light which took the biscuit for me - smooth with hints of honey, slightly cold but fresh and lively to the palette.
As for the food? Well I can report that I'm happy to order steak again in these parts - I'm a simple man, so get the simple things right and I'm yours for life! The thick juicy and tender sirloin slid down with passionate fervor whilst my friend thoroughly enjoyed his pigeon breasts - hopefully they are still on the specials menu when we return next time. We completed the meal with a slice of lemon cheesecake and a bread and butter pudding and a couple of strong coffee's.
We met Nick the Chef on his tour around the tables welcoming everyone towards the end of our evening. Turns out 'ex pat Australians' doesn't do our hosts Nick & Wendy justice - for they have run restaurants and hotels on what strikes me as 5 different continents over 35 odd years and my oh my it shows - and apparently this is their first pub!?
Think I've just found my favourite rubadub. Welcome to Kent may you never leave!
