Sadly only TEA and Doombar on offer. TEA was an eye watering £4.75/pint !!

Sorry, won't be returning at those prices.

Excellent food just a sad choice of ales...Doomed Beer yawn and TEA. But if the punters are coming in because the food is so good then maybe they don't need to worry.

Been here 3 times recently for lunch and it's okay. TEA, Ringwood 49-er and (*yawn*) Doombar all available with the TEA being very nice indeed. Food prices have just increased from borderline pricey to expensive. The quality is good, but not that good, which may explain why it can be a bit quiet. The staff, mostly Italian, struggle a bit with the local lingo (a request for a dash of lime produced a slice of lime) but for the most part seem hard-working and willing. They deserve to succeed, but I'm not sure they've quite got the formula right.

Called in mid-week for lunch. Party of four. Well received and offered a choice of tables. Meals were all excellent. Good sized portions, fresh vegetables. Much of the menu is Italian themed, but pub grub classics also available, Some interesting and well presented choices. The owners and staff are an Italian family - all very friendly and pleasant. T.E.A. was excellent.
Prices very reasonable. We will certainly visit again.

Having lived in Elstead for quite a few years I have watched the progress of this pub closely. The most recent owners have made an excellent effort with the refurb (although they have completely ignored the garden), and are pushing food above all else. Remember this is a pub and not a restaurant, the owners name is above the door indicating that he is licenced to serve intoxicating liquor, not prioritise food.

I cannot understand the reviews on here that state welcoming or friendly staff as this is quite wrong. They are just plain rude, exceptionally so if you are not there to eat. From entry they assume that you will be eating (it's a pub!) as the food they serve obviously accounts for most of their income (again, pub!). The attitude of the staff when they realise you just want a drink is deplorable, they try to seat you at the worst tables and even shout at customers who are drinking that dare to try to sit in comfort. This has happened three times to groups I have been with so I can report first hand how annoying and rude their attitude is. This attitude has no place in a pub that is licenced as such, with customers paying good money to enjoy a drink in their local.

I have also eaten here under the new management, expensive, and really not worth the money.

I predict The Woolpack will be changing hands again soon, as this kind of service only serves to deter valuable customers. I will certainly not darken their door again until this has happened.

The woolpack has massive potential, as an eaterie and a pub, but landlord do remember you are running a pub not a restaurant. If you want to run a restaurant then buy one and pay for the licence as a restaurant not a pub. There is no such thing as a Gastropub this is just a term not a licence option!
