There was an item on local TV stating that 'The Woolpack' was to close, complaining that while trade in the summer was okay business over the winter was very poor. In 2005 the previous landlord also walked out. I walked past recently and they have a paper notice in the door glass appologising for the closure. See:

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.
