“"THE BEST"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Has and always will serve the best fillet steak in the world, where ever we go in the world we always compare, and we are yet to find anywhere that beats it.
The whole menu is tasty.
The setting and outside area, is great. The atmosphere and staff fab.
One of our favourite places. Anyone who gives this place less than 4*, must be impossible to please or are professional complainers out for a freeby meal, trust me ive seen enough of them around the world.
A little tip for the owners, try the staff in a uniform/matching clothes, for a smarter appearance.
I highly recommend a visit (Have the fillet in red wine, amazing)

“Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Thought we would go out for Sunday lunch my husband had roast pork and crackling yummy nice roast potatoes great veg and gravy was nice and tasty.
I had cod with a cheese sauce two pieces of cod mash potatoes and veg also very nice only sad thing was I was to full for pudding.several of the puddings that were coming out looked good this lunch time outing was made all the better as there were some Russian visitors also having lunch and an impromptus playing of the piano by one of the Russian lady's was such fun with a few of the other diners joining in with her. Enjoyable lunch enjoyable company what more do you want ?

“Never fails in quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We have been using the Woolpack on and off over many years, and it has never failed to impress. Its a great location and a lovely pub. There is always a warm welcome from the new owners, and we are sure once they have sorted out staffing issues, this will be a great place to bring friends and family. Just a little tip for the owners, it would be nice to see the staff dressed in uniform, it would look much smarter. Our favourite is the fillet steak in the red wine or peppercorn sauce. We have compared other steak meals in every country we visit, and we have still never found a better, tasting or more perfectly cooked steak anywhere. Now under new management and even though they have a few teething problems which is to be expected, the food quality has not been affected, and the steak remains the best in the world but we will continue searching! Well worth a visit.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

We have been to this pub in the past and enjoyed it, so we did not hesitate to have a light lunch before attending a wedding. The sandwiches we ordered came with very dry bread, the ham was plentiful but you had to hunt for the mustard, the chips were cold and basically it was not fit for purpose. Did not complaint as time was tight, but I do not think we shall be coming back any time soon.

“Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

A pretty thatched roofed and beamed 'oldie worldie' pub in Sopley Dorset.
The food was lovely although not outstanding, but pleasant enough surroundings and staff, it has a lovely outside area either on the patio/terrace or in the garden.
I recommend The Woolpack to anyone is you are passing nearby!
