The only remaining pub in the town centre since the conversion of the Victoria at the other end of the High Street to a pizza restaurant, the Woolpack is a brick and tile building with a cluster of large umbrellas at the front, masking the main entrance. Inside is a single bar with a lounge and restaurant area to the left and an open area with a glass-fronted log burner to the right. Terrestrially televised sporting events are occassionally shown on TV. Formerly a Barclay Perkins house, it was latterly Courage for many years becoming a Spirit pub when they were taken over by Scottish & Newcastle. The pub was then sold to Punch and in May 2009 it was sold again, this time to Shepherd Neame, its current owners. Excellent home made food is available all day until 9pm (9.30 Thu-Sat, 6 Sun), featuring daily specials plus roasts on Sunday. Monday night is quiz night and live jazz afternoons are held on the first Tuesday of the month. Two true guest beers are sold which almost always come from a list of about 16 breweries which are from the south east and feature a large number of local breweries. The landlord is proud that he can sell guest beers and there is an annual beer festival which is held over the August bank holiday. Children are only allowed in the pub when eating as a family away from the bar. It was named Shepherd Neame Pub of the Year in 2011. There is a patio at the front and a lawned garden at the back, both with umbrellas for smokers and dogs are welcome in the pub except in the restaurant. Free WiFi is available. There are disabled parking spaces, the side entrance is the one with a ramp and a key to the disabled toilet is available behind the bar if you do not have one.
