Hello and welcome to the Woolpack,

As we near the end of May we can finally open our gardens as the grass is drying out and we are able to mow the lawns. The adult garden grass is going to
need a lot of attention, however it is open with its lounge style settees and cushions. New umbrellas should arrive soon to provide additional shade. We are also refurbishing our old smoking shelter/ pavilion with a smart new roof and making flooring repairs. All round our gardens are perfect for enjoying a drink and/ or something to eat in the sunshine.

Thank you to everyone who took a chance on the weather and joined us for a good fun Family Day and BBQ on May Bank Holiday Monday, the sun came out in the end. You may have noticed that we have allowed the grass to grow around our borders again this year in support of No Mow May, a movement that encourages people to pause their mowing to help provide food for pollinators and lots more. See www.plantlife.org.uk. It also helps with our daffodils for next season.

A couple of dates for your diary, we will be hosting our annual Cherished Cars and Classics Car show supported by Burgess Hill Classic Car Club on Sunday the 7th July, watch out for details and our Dog Show hosted by Ros and her team from Cootes Vets on Saturday 14th September

Freshly cooked meals and lighter bites are available every day from midday until 3.00pm and then from 5.30pm until 8.30pm on weekdays,9.00pm on Fridays and then all day on Saturday until 9.00pm and 7.00pm on Sundays. We have recently added some new dishes to our menu and specials are usually available. There are more roast choices on Sundays, including a cauliflower cheese roast which is proving very popular. There are now nine roast options to choose from. Don’t forget that our roasts can be ordered to take away, simply call us on 01444 245178 to place your order and arrange a time to collect.

There is no need to book but it is always smart to check that we can accommodate you especially at weekends. We are happy to take bookings for more than six however availability is key. If you would like to discuss a larger gathering then please call us so that we can talk it through, family groups are welcome. The Woolpack is also a great place for your party and we can provide exclusive parts of the pub, buffets and set menus depending on what you would like to do.

We host a General Knowledge quiz on the second Thursday of the month and a Music Quiz on the last Thursday of the month. The quizzes start at 8.00pm
and finish just after 10.00pm. If you would like to attend, teams up to a maximum of six, then it is always better to book. Live music is on most Friday Nights
and we host lots of other events which can be seen on our Events page which is updated every month.

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.

Our Ales include Harvey’s and up to three guest ales plus Shipyard APA. Our lagers are Heineken, Amstel, Birra Moretti, Cruz Campo ,Fosters and Heineken 0.0. We also have a large stock of Low and No alcohol including Gordons Gin 0 and Guinness 0.

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.
