Stopped off here for a lite bite and a drink, the pub from outside is vey inviting, inside is equally the same staff friendly and welcoming, we ordered our drinks and sat by the lovely open fire, sadly there was no lite bites on offer as even the sandwich came with a cup of soup and a side of chips,...

Hi there, Wonderful that you stopped in for a drink and that you think the pub is inviting as we do keep up the standards of the pub in and out and clearly its working, so that's great. The fire is also our lovely winter warmer for customers to sit back and relax. As for lite bits, we do have... More

My partner and I visited regularly and normally spend our Friday lunchtime with the table reserved by the lovely fireplace. Alas the weeks the we have been going we have missed Megs the warm and friendly manager. I am afraid to say the food is no longer the quality that we loved when Ryan was the exemplary chef and Billy... More

This used to be a lovely pub with fresh delicious food. Visited again a few times since we moved to winchester, both for Lunch and dinner. Food is not great - nothing fresh on the menu, lots of meat, appalling crispy squid. Worst of all was that at dinner they had very loud pop music which was completely unnecessary. The... More

Visited with 4 adults, one with a disability, a 6 year old, a 3 year old and an 8 month old baby. Service slow. Baby changing facilities nonexistent. Offered a grubby mat, no surface to put it on so changed baby's nappy kneeling on wet tiled floor of ladies. Disabled access very difficult. Asked about disabled toilet facilities. Told that...

Woolpack-Manager, General Manager at The Woolpack Inn, responded to this review

Hi there, I will admit that we do not have disabled toilets but we do have access due to the foundations and the structure in which this Grade 1 listed building pub was first built, therefore limiting the amount of alterations that we are allowed to make to the fabric of the building. Also unfortunately we do do our best... More

Was given a gift voucher by friends. Table reservation made on-line, but as no confirmation received I telephoned to ensure availability and was offered fireside table in the bar. The aloof landlord (?) appeared not to be aware of booking and we were given a table in the restaurant area (the fireside table had been taken). Lipstick was present on... More

Went here for my 50th, and was quite disappointed. Had thought of going into Winchester, but decided to stay local. Eight of us had the private room, which was ideal, with a small area outside to take drinks before dinner. The service was attentive and staff very informed re the menu. But the let down was the food - it... More

What a fantastic experience! My husband and I were recommended this gem by friends, and they weren't wrong. Superb beer, fantastic food and friendly staff. We loved the fact that the chef came round the restaurant too. We will definitely be back soon.

We stayed in Quail and found that the loo roll holder was falling off the wall, the loo seat was loose, the lid fell off the bin, there was black mould on the sealant in the shower and when we were putting our clothes away in the drawers under the bed we found a blood stained pillow. All this made... More

Took a chance and just googled. Warm welcome, laid back and very accommodating. Lovely rooms and really good food. Log fire and the sun setting over the hill. Good ales, useful wine list and good advice from Megs. Fish pie was quite superb!

We booked a last minute two night stay -(sun/mon) and loved every minute! Set in the most beautiful Hampshire countryside, this pub provides excellent service and great beer - according to my husband - especially the local ale "the Woolpack". The breakfast was faultless with plenty of choice and the restaurant food we had was delicious. Our room on the... More
