chocolate box setting in the heart of Sopley. Thatched cottage pub on the edge of the New Forest serving seasonal meals that have been sorced from local butchers and fruit growers. We have warm and friendly staff ready to take care of your every need. The log burner in the bar is ready to keep you cosy and warm on the cold winters day.

The staff at the Woolpack are really lovely but the vegetarian roast was not good. The Yorkshire puddings are great but the vegetables really let the roast down as they are like processed school dinners..

A very well located large pub 3 miles from Christchurch and 5 miles from Ringwood. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating and an excellent selection of food and beers. The fishcake was particularly good.
