“Excellent as usual” from Janet Carding, December 2018

For the third year running we held our Family Christmas Get-together here as it is very convenient for travellers from north, south and in between.  This year was slightly different as it was a birthday party.  We were given the newly opened Function Room which was just right for our party of 25 + a high chair.  We were allowed access to decorate the room before lunch and had it until early evening.

As in previous years we sampled all of the menu choices between us and everybody agreed that their meal was hot and tasty especially the beef.  There was plenty of vegetables and more were brought without us asking.  My fish pie was superb.

And well done to the Staff for serving us cheerfully and efficiently despite all our noise and milling about between courses.  And for getting everything right despite my constant changes to the arrangements. Well done Kirsty and Co.  Thank you xx

On 26th January 2019, TADS held its annual Christmas / New Year Meal in The Woolpack function room.  The Woolpack staff were brilliant, and couldn’t have done more to make our evening comfortable.  The food was delicious and the portion size was more than generous!”

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for last night!
The decorations were perfect, the food was amazing and the staff were brilliant!!
Thank you so much for making my 30th party so worry free! Xx”

“Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to Kirsty and the team – I had a surprise 40th birthday party in The Stables last Saturday and it was just brilliant – fantastic food and beautiful service.  I know that the team was really helpful to my husband and kids in terms of organising it all.  Thank you xx!”
