Fabulous Food in the Candover Valley
There is so much to say about our food but we’ll keep this as short as possible with the hope you will click on the menu links below to get a real feel for the delicious food on offer at the Woolpack Inn.
Ryan, our head chef, changes our menus monthly (although by demand some of our most popular dishes remain on the board week in, week out) but also brings extra variety by creating some superb daily specials. Ryan loves to use local suppliers and is a keen forager. Much of our bread comes from Matt the Baker in Alresford but if we want something specific, Ryan makes up the mix and Matt bakes it just for us. And as you would expect for the Candover Valley, our game comes straight from the local estates.
We are open for lunch, dinner and seven days a week. You can choose to dine in our traditional bar area, the 50-cover dining room or the heated outside area. The private dining room (seating up to 12) with its own garden, is available for all styles of party. Our garden, with children’s play area, is also available for the warmer months.
Summer Time Pizza Oven
Rather unusually for the Hampshire countryside, the Woolpack Inn has a fantastic outdoor Pizza Oven. During the summer months this is open on Sunday evenings (6.30pm to 8.30pm) and is the only food served. The Pizza Oven is available for private functions at other times.
Children (and dogs) are always welcome at the Woolpack Inn and we offer a children’s menu made from the same quality ingredients found in the rest of our dishes. This is available every day of the week (except Sunday evenings when the pizza oven is open) and every Friday from 5pm we have a special children’s tea. Please book in advance.
Sunday lunch is a big deal at the Woolpack Inn (remember the Bloody Mary!) so it is advisable to book. We offer three roasts, one of which is always a good Herefordshire Beef. Don’t forget to ask about our Family Roasts too: a large board piled high with your choice of meat, bowls of roasties, veg and Yorkshire puds and of course a steaming jug of gravy.
