The Woolpack

With great food and hand-pulled ales, there’ll always be a warm welcome at The Woolpack pub in Esholt, as featured on Emmerdale. It was recently used both inside and outside to film Ashley's emotional episode as his dementia worsened.

It's always mega nice to see Megan

It's always great to see Gaynor Faye, who plays Megan in Emmerdale, when she pops in to see us from time to time. She is such a lovely person and all the customers really enjoy meeting her as she has time for everyone.

Unbelievable Jeff - it's Kammy

It was great to see Chris Kamara when he called by with his friends for lunch. What a charming guy he is as he was very happy to have his photograph taken with the customers. I think secretly he is an Emmerdale fan too.

It's not just Emmerdale stars who pop by, we also welcome some global superstars too. It was great therefore when the legendary and all round nice guy, Frank Bruno paid a visit to the Woolpack and posted it on his social media.

August Classic Car Rally

Having had a fairly quiet July meet due to it clashing with England's semi-final game in the World Cup, August was back to its best with 60 cars filling the car park to make it another great night with lots of spectators and an extremely popular BBQ.

The last one of the year - where has the time gone - is on Wednesday 12 September. It's free entry too.

It is always great to see the Emmerdale stars when they pop into the famous Woolpack in Esholt. So we were delighted when Paddy called in much to the surprise of the customers.He is a really nice guy as he spent ages chatting with those who were in at the time and he had no hesitation in having a pic behind the bar with James.

What a fantastic evening we had on 13 June when more than 90 cars came along for our monthly classic car rally. There was a great selection of cars from vintage through to some extremely powerful cars and a good crowd came along to take a look.

What could sum up a traditional May Day celebration in a lovely village than a display by Morris dancers? We were delighted therefore when the Wayzgoose troop entertained us on a glorious day. As well as dancing I think they were the start of the fantastic Summer weather.
