Traditional pub with a good selection of beers. Carvery was very tasty with some lovely rare beef. Good value for money

We used the Woolpack as it is dog friendly and were meeting a relation half way between both our homes and they needed to bring their dog. Job done. The food was basic and reasonably priced, not a problem, more than worth it really.

This place which was a favourite local of ours has gone so downhill. Most of the regulars and good staff have moved on due to the oppressive regime of the management. The beer is ok but often not well kept. The food is filling if you like a lot of greasy chips and deep fried onion rings served with cheap... More

I'm not a roast lunch person - but needed to feed my offspring and they fancied a roast! Whilst The Woolpack doesn't really offer plush decor, or convivial dining - It does make up for any shortcomings with its hearty Sunday lunch fayre! Perfectly cooked meat and vegetables and plenty of it! Good value for money in one of Buckingham's... More

Friendly pub, great welcome, easy going and dog-friendly. Not fine dining but decent enough pub food without getting too clever.

After eating her two weeks ago I recommend it to friends, we visited today 2 of us had the panini special and 1 the hunters chicken. The ham and cheese panini had so much fat and was so chewy my friend ended up with just cheese mine was slightly better. The hunters chicken came out over cooked and was inedible.... More

Not the busiest pub New Years eve but we enjoyed our evening the staff were prepared for the onslaught which did not happen. What a shame Buckingham folk did not support the pub. We will be back for lunch food looks good

Visited in a group and had booked in advance. The menu and food was lovely, met expectations after looking on Trip advisor, however service was very poor. It's a shame as the chef is being let down front of house. Nobody asked how our meal was and did we have everything we needed (we didn't). Nobody came to clear our... More

Booked day before for Saturday dinner with friends plus kids and dogs. Arrived early but were greeted with a smile and shown to our seats. Beer was good. Fish and chips pretty standard pub grub. Burger was excellent although a little well done for my tastes. A great option after a walk around Stowe National Trust. Parking a bit tricky... More
