Tucked away -- almost literally -- in the middle of nowhere on a narrow road winding from Hardknott Pass towards Cumbria's west coast, the Woolpack is one of the oddest mixes of ancient and modern, traditional and aspirational boutique we've ever encountered anywhere. Walk in the door to the pub and you're in a world which dates back to 1729,... More

Fabulous pub, very charming. Definitely worth a visit. The best pub in the area in my opinion, much better than the Boot which fell woefully short. We particularly liked that they pick you up from the entrance of the pub on a lorry to prevent you having to climb a hill to get there. Highly recommended - keep up the... More

I had visited the a Woolpack last year and decided to use this a the venue for a family celebration weekend. As in October I was not disappointed. Harry and Paddington have developed this Inn to a high standard - they have well trained, well motivated staff who actually know how to talk to people and apologise if something is... More

Location is excellent. Accommodation is average. Walls so thin you can hear everything - including people going to the loo. Evening meals are small and basic. Pool table was good. Breakfast was better although not included in the cost. All in all the place needs a revamp.

Fantastic location with stunning views. Food and drink excellent and at a reasonable price. Very dog friendly. We stopped for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be going back.

What a charming pub. Having just driven over hardknott pass we stopped here for some food and boy was I glad we did. The pub is modern and friendly. The food was excellent as was the service. We would defiantly visit this establishment again.

A very warm welcome and friendly staff with a decent breakfast served. Out of season I should imagine a very quiet place however a good atmosphere in season. For people who want to getaway from it all this is an ideal retreat. A great selection of ales.

Just got back from my 1 night stay at the Woolpack Inn. With my husband and dogs, after a walk up Scafell. Excellent location with beautiful scenery. Great value for Money Food was great and staff were very friendly. Excellent for dogs with a secure area for them to run around in Would definitely come again

I haven't stayed here, so can't speak to the quality of the accommodation. However, I was fortunate enough to be staying in self catering accommodation within a very short walk away, and came here 4 times for food and beer. I have to say I am totally mystified by the negative reviews here. I wonder if they went to the... More

Based on recommendation in Cumbria Life we decided to have a day out from Carlisle, taking a scenic drive over Wrynose and Hardknott culminating in a lunch stop at this dog-friendly pub. 140 mile round trip in the end. Big mistake (the lunch stop that is, not the drive). The two new girls waitressing and manning the bar (their first... More
