|'Welcomed' by an unsmiling lady behind the bar, the pub lacked any atmosphere; the food service was painfully slow for all the tables, not just ours; the soup was tasteless; my wife's jacket potato was only partially edible as part was rock hard from being too long in the microwave and all the salad garnish was limp & the cucumber slices dried out. On commenting to the unsmiling lady there was no real apology and no offer of a refund. In this day and age, pub food which is just 'OK' is not really acceptable. The food and service here fell WELL below 'OK!! SUCH a disappointment considering what a potential gold mine this place should be. The only feature to commend this pub is the 'Emmerdale' connection, so if that's the reason you're visiting, maybe just use the loos!!|

|I first visited The Commercial as this pub was originally called back in the early seventies round about the time that Emmerdale started using it, over the years I visited quite often it was always a nice little pub. I hadn't visited since the late nineties and with a bit of nostalgia in my veins I visited about two weeks ago. I wish I hadn't what a hole this place has become, if the landlords are re-decorating or have redecorated as mentioned in previous comment then their idea of a colour scheme has to be seen, Stark white lights, a hotch potch of non matching chairs and tables this place is like a tea shop that happens to sell beer, what a great shame. The only redeeming feature was that I had one of the best pints of Landlord I have had in years. Avoid like the plague until somebody says it is a proper pub again|

|I'm surprised there are no reviews of this pub yet, as it must be very popular with tourists, and as it's currently rated 2/10 from two reviewers it would be interesting to know why they disliked it.|
In case you didn't know, it's famous as the original Woolpack from Emmerdale, although for filming purposes it has now been reconstructed on a set elsewhere. Don't expect to recognise the inside though.
Seems quite a decent pub to me with a few tables out the front and a reasonable choice of beers. Food was popular, although we didn't try it ourselves.
In spite of it's fame it seems to be quite a locals pub. Nice spot to stop for a beer.
