Nine years of service

Obviously The Woolpack has been around a lot longer than 9 years, but our Business Owner Darren has had the pleasure of running the establishment for 9 years now! A chef by trade, and a regular in the hospitality industry for around 27 years, Darren has poured his heart and soul into The Woolpack, to bring you all the pub you know and love today!

The pub has easy access from the likes of Kettering, Oundle, Peterborough and surrounding areas. It has some great local attractions nearby, such as Rushden Lakes Retail Park, Santapod & Silverstone Raceways, and Stanwick Lakes.

Restaurant dining, drinking and alfresco dining

We’re excited to offer a vast range of facilities to suit everyone. Our upstairs restaurant can seat around 100 guests, and has its own service bar offering an extensive range of alcoholic, soft and hot beverages. To the side of the upstairs restaurant is a secluded, outside seating area, equipped with rattan furniture, and perfect for alfresco dining. Downstairs you will find our Bar area, complete with a cosy log burner for those colder, winter days. This bar also serves our function room, The Stables, and our large front patio area, which benefits from the sunshine all day long, and is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed drink and/or meal.

The Stables

The Stables

Our function room is located downstairs, and is the ideal place to host your special occasions, including intimate small wedding receptions and private dining. Comfortably seating 26 for a sit down meal, or up to 50 for more informal affairs, we love the versatility of this room.


And if all of the above wasn’t enough, we also have ten ensuite rooms, located in a separate building at the back of the pub, with a communal grassed area. Benefitting from a full refurbishment across 2022, we guarantee you feel relaxed in our accommodation.
