| ||Welcome to the Woolpack || |
| ||A traditional warm welcome awaits you here at the Woolpack. Burgess Hill's best kept secret, a country pub which was formerly West End farmhouse which in part, dates back to 1621. (We have found records of a property on the same site called Floods Hatch that dates back to 1588). There is a restaurant area within the Sussex Barn that extends from the farmhouse, which is cosy and comfortable with its eclectic collection of tables and chairs. Food is served throughout the pub and garden and is prepared fresh here every day. Our suppliers are all locally based and we are proud to be working with them. Their details can be found on our menus or under the 'Our Partners' tab on this web site. We work hard to make sure every meal we prepare and serve is as good as we can make it and we pride ourselves on the standard of our service and our relaxing atmosphere.
Our allotment, located in front of the Farmhouse, behind the fence separating the duck pond, was created over 18months ago and we will be extending it again this year. We use everything we grow and this includes potatoes, spinach, kale parsnips, beetroot, runner beans, rocket salad, herbs, squash, soft fruit and even cut flowers for our tables.
We hold the Cask Marque standard for the quality of our cellar and our draft cask ales. We have a choice of up to six available and offer guest ales each and every week. Our draught lagers include Kronenburg, Amstel and Italy's biggest selling draft, Birra Moretti
The wine list offers Red, White, Rose and sparkling with a choice of Champagne. We have over seven wines available by the glass
and if there is a particular wine you would like us to stock for you we would be happy to see if we can.
Throughout the year we will be hosting special events which will include themed nights with supporting menus, live music, cookery demonstrations and lots, lots more. Keep an eye out for our flyers or let us have your email address and we'll keep in touch. You can also see forthcoming Events under that tab on this site. If you have a special celebration this year come and talk to us about what we can offer for your event.
The farmhouse has an open log fire, Bar billiards table and Toad in the Hole table, great traditional games for your entertainment
And if you don't know the rules we'll be happy to help.
If it's a pint of the usual or diner for you and the family and guests we look forward to welcoming you.
