The Woolpack Inn is a delightful timber-framed building dating back to the fourteenth century with plenty of original features. My wife and I and a friend visited on a Saturday night having booked a couple of days earlier. We started with the whitebait which were delicious although it would have been nice if they'd been accompanied by bread and butter.... More

Eaten both the roast and the pizza they do every Thursday (I believe). Both are very nice and would definitely have again. Lovely pub

This was the lunch stop on our wet ramble to and from Kelvedon. Interesting and welcoming interior, complete with small 'comfy chair' and fireplace area near the entrance. Table reserved for us in the main bar area. Good choice of food and ales. Apparently we'd been warned of the service 'not being quick' as the food is freshly prepared. No... More

A very cosy pub with plenty of character. The roast dinner I had was excellent value for money. I will be back soon!

After greatly enjoying the fabulous 29th Annual Flower Festival in Coggeshall's Parish Church, St Peter ad Vincula, on 29.08.16, my wife and I together with a friend wandered into the Woolpack Inn, virtually next door to the Church, for liquid refreshments but as a result of being charmed by the place we ended up staying for lunch. Appearing as it... More

Went there for a last-minute evening meal (Wednesday) with family and sat in the garden and ate as it was so hot. Owners are always friendly and welcoming and actually cook the food rather than order it in. We all had good meals.

We finished a 3 day walk along the Essex Way at Coggeshall. Although we had booked in to another pub in the town we did not want to spend the evening in it so we wandered out to see what the alternatives were. First up was the Chappel Inn which looked quite attractive from the outside but was well packed... More

In the dead of night, well, evening; after a lovely Chinese and some beers at The Chapel Inn, we decided to sample one of the other village pubs. We chose The Woolpack, and I am glad that we did. The Chapel Inn was overcrowded, noisy, and so busy that the wait times at the bar were becoming horrendous, but The... More
