Affectionately known to locals as The Woolly, The Woolpack is a traditional English inn that dates back to the 15th century. This pub, restaurant and hotel can be found at the heart of Kent, making it a wonderful choice for those spending time exploring the county. Following a comfortable night’s stay, head to the restaurant for a full English breakfast.
The menu in the cosy restaurant changes regularly, so even the most frequent visitors will find something exciting to order. To start, you might choose the traditional scotch egg with curry mayonnaise, or the comforting sweet potato and coconut soup. The Woolpack is first and foremost a traditional pub, so you’ll find main courses that will warm even the coldest of cockles. Look out for the likes of roast Romney Marsh lamb with roast potatoes, fresh veg and a superb Yorkshire pudding, accompanied by excellent red wine gravy. Visit for a Sunday roast and you’ll be able to tuck into hearty dishes like this before you curl up beside the fire with a newspaper – surely the perfect antidote to a chilly afternoon? You’ll also find vegetarian options and plenty for seafood fans, such as almond-crusted halibut fillet in parsley sauce. Round things off in suitably traditional fashion with classic bread and butter pudding, accompanied by a pint of top-notch ale.
