Welcoming country inn with cracking food and local ales

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 upmarket wine list will please the cognoscenti. Eat in the traditional bar, where tiled floors and a roaring log fire create a relaxing atmosphere; alternatives are the smart dining room or the terrace. Main courses include home farmed partridge, parsnip purée, cabbage and bacon, black pudding, game chips; or maple-glazed duck leg, butternut squash purée and pak choi.
