The Woolpack is steeped in history and character; a public house for over 300 years. Set the beautiful Slad Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Woolpack is one of the last, independant, gems of a British country pub. Daniel Chadwick has owned his much-loved pub for 20 years, now working closely with general manager Harry Wynne-Morgan and head chef Adam Glover.

Entering The Woolpack is like stepping back in time: unspoiled by passing fads, and famed for its lifelong association with poet Laurie Lee, it's loved by locals and visitors alike.

“One of the best pub menus I've ever seen...and I've seen a few!” JRD32, Tripadvisor

“The food and service were fantastic. Lots of attention to detail. Fresh locally sourced produce. Service was charming and attentive.” JaneEdmonds, Tripadvisor
