Description: We are a traditional, family run, country pub, located in the heart of Elstead in south west Surrey. Originally a wool exchange dating to the 17th century, The Woolpack has been many things, including a butcher's shop and a bicycle repairer's, before becoming the pub it is today. We have recently completed a major refurbishment inside and out. Relax in our welcoming bar, admire the weaving shuttles and other remnants of the wool industry, dine in our restaurant or enjoy the spacious garden.Our menu features seasonal home-cooked dishes, offering both a bar and full restaurant menu. Fresh fish features heavily, although meat lovers will not be disappointed. We have a daily specials board, which you'll often find signature Italian dishes (courtesy of our Italian owners and chef Gina).The surrounding hundreds of acres of common land make the pub particularly popular with ramblers, whose tired feet can be warmed in front of the roaring fire. The Woolpack welcomes families and well behaved dogs and has adequate parking in front of the pub.

“Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

I have now had three or four visits and meals in The Woolpack since it was refurbished in mid 2012 and the new licensees (Gabby & Gina) have made the Woolpack a "must visit" pub in the area. Try the authentic Italian pizza (but beware it's huge!) or the excellent fish pie full of flavour and chunks of fish. Beer served straight from the cask is a nice bit of theatre. For the quality of the menu and food this must be the best value pub in this area? Family run too, not one of the soleless freezer to frier big pub company managed houses food places like The Mill.

“Mother's Day lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

My daughter booked this pub for lunch on Mother's Day. There was a set menu with plenty of choice. Unfortuantely our table was near the door so we were constantly blasted with cold air. It was very busy when we arrived and we noted alot of people complaining. However, as were were probabl in the later sitting our food was good and the service after a rocky start was good. The main course could have been warmer but non the less it was tasty. I probably agree with the prevuous comment that less peope would have given a better service all round. Enjoyed it though and would go back for lunch again.

“Rushed and poor quality”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We were so disappointed by our recent Mothers Day visit to the Woolpack, especially after they promised such great things. Our family meal was rushed and none of our courses were served together so we had to eat seperatly! Even when the main finally arrived it was luke warm and no thought had been put into preparation.

It was really sad as they could have made Mothers Day a special occasion but instead it felt as though they just wanted to cram as many people in as possible to the restaurant, without a thought for the customer experience. We don't recommend this pub for a special occasion or a family meal. It is over priced and they over promise.
