Good news is on the horizon as we look forward to a staged reopening and seeing you all again.
The first step will be to open our garden from 11.00am Thursday 29th April for meals and drinks. Given that we can only trade outside, we will be closing at 10.00pm with last orders for drinks at 9.30pm and last orders for food at 8.00pm.
As it is the first spring Bank holiday we will be open on Monday 1st of May, again operating the same trading hours. For the following two weeks we will be open Thursday to Sunday inclusive until Monday 17th of May when we will open inside as well. We will revert back to our normal hours then that is 11.00 to 11.00pm during the week and 12.00 to 10.30 pm on Sundays. To be clear, until the 17th May customers are not allowed inside except to access the Garden, leave the premises or use the toilets.
We will offer table service and Covid Secure regulations will apply, we are waiting for Government guidance on exactly what is required. We do know that the rule of six, along with the wearing of masks when entering and moving around the pub are expected. It is not possible for groups to book separate tables of six and please do not set out to break the rules.
Our Risk Assessment will be posted on this site when we have all the information we need.
It will be a good idea to book a table to avoid disappointment as our covered space is limited and wrap up warmly, even bring a blanket if you’re planning an evening visit (we do not have outside heaters).
Whilst we are closed we will return to hosting Quiz nights on most Thursdays and live Music on most Friday evenings. These events are promoted on our Facebook page and can be viewed here on our Facebook page.
We also host an Instagram account – @thewoopackburgesshill and don’t forget we are cooking Sunday Roasts to take away every Sunday call 01444 245178 to book yours.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Take care and stay safe.

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.
Opening hours: Monday to Saturday 12.00 to 11.00pm – Sunday 12.00 to 10.30pm
* No Children allowed after 9pm.
* We do not run tabs if you are outside.
* And we do not allow vests either inside or out.
We have a choice of up to six available and offer guest ales each and every week. Our draught lagers include Kronenbourg, 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 a large wood burner in the fireplace and a Toad in the Hole table nearby. If you don’t know the rules for this old Sussex game we will be happy to show you how to play and it’s great fun for two or more players.
If it’s a pint of the usual or diner for you and the family and guests we look forward to welcoming you.
