The Woolpack Beefeater grill restaurant in Ashford
Welcome to the Woolpack Beefeater in the lovely village of Hothfield in Kent! We’re a cosy steakhouse and pub restaurant, specialising in innovative steak cuts, traditional pub grub and a refreshing range of drinks for every occasion. We pride ourselves on our relaxed atmosphere and great service – whether you’re in the mood for a big breakfast, a light lunch or a delicious dinner, at the Woolpack you’ll never leave disappointed.
Whenever you visit us, our experienced team will be on hand to look after you. It doesn’t matter if you’re joining us for an early morning breakfast or a late-night meal, our team will always do their best to make your meal with us the best it can be. Our kitchen team are committed to serving excellent food every time and our front of house team make sure every guest leaves smiling.
We run a lot of events in support of Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, which we invite the whole community to take part in. In the past we’ve held bake sales, hosted gigs and ran quizzes to help raise money for a charity that makes a huge difference to so many children’s lives.
There’s a lot of history to our restaurant, the main pub building was built in the 1800s! It’s a privilege to carry on some of the same traditions in a space that’s been so important to the community for centuries. Over the years, the Woolpack has served as a shop and a farm, but in every form, it always found itself a hub for the whole community. In the 30 years since we’ve been running the restaurant, we’ve been so pleased to see how this magical old building has evolved with the times and stands as strong as it ever did.
Our restaurant has spacious dining areas with plenty of space across multiple floors, a cosy pub area full of character and an enclosed, fenced off pub garden in front of the restaurant.

Why we love Hothfield
Hothfield is a scenic village only a short drive from the centre of Ashford in Kent. We’re a little spoiled here at the Woolpack Beefeater because we’re surrounded by all the sights and countryside, but we’re also only a short drive away from town with easy (and very fast) links to London and Paris from Ashford International Station.
We’re only a short drive away from tourist hotspots like Leeds Castle and the Ashford Outlet Centre, two very different places that are perfect for family trips and picking up high street bargains. There’s no better way to set yourself up for the day than with us at the Woolpack Beefeater!
Victoria Park, the Kent Downs and Conningbrook Lakes Country Park are other amazing spots for walks and adventures, all in the gorgeous Kentish countryside. Hothfield is a little slice of paradise with all of the connections to cities nearby – we really are very lucky here at the Woolpack Beefeater.
We serve perfectly grilled steaks at the Woolpack Beefeater, it’s no surprise they’re our most popular dish! Our 8oz fillet steaks are one of our tastiest cuts and, like all our steaks, they’re aged for a minimum of 30 days, packed with flavour and served with chunky triple cooked chips, crispy flat mushroom, juicy grilled tomatoes and peppercorn sauce.
We serve a fantastic Sunday lunch here at the Woolpack Beefeater. With our Sunday roasts you can choose from our specialty roast sirloin of beef, rump of lamb, half-roast chicken or butternut squash & ale pie, served with all the trimmings and our signature red wine gravy. You also get unlimited roast potatoes and other delicious extras.
It’s got to be the Premier Inn Breakfast, which we serve at the Woolpack Beefeater. An unlimited selection of the best of an English breakfast. That’s bacon, eggs cooked just how you like them, hash browns, black pudding, toast and plenty more with free tea and coffee.
