AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Open all year
Kids play area
Dog friendly

Set in stunning Hampshire countryside, this brick and flint drovers’ inn has a sense of calm modernity while still retaining the classic feel of a country pub. Standing in a tiny hamlet in the peaceful Candover Valley, The Woolpack welcomes walkers and their dogs, families, cyclists and foodies. Ales change weekly, while an up-market wine list will please the cognoscenti. Eat in the traditional bar, where rugs on tiled or wood floors and a roaring log fire create a relaxing atmosphere; alternatives are the smart dining room or a terrace. The bar menu proffers classics such as pie of the day or bangers and mash with onion gravy. Typical dining room main courses are confit pork belly, smoked bacon and potato gratin; or spiced winter vegetable hotpot, carrot and onion fritters and garlic flatbread.
