I sometimes have an hour or two to kill on a Tuesday evening so a walk round the magnificent Christchurch park and then nachos/beer at the Woolpack is as good as it gets. V friendly service, interesting beers and somewhere to sit outside.

Met up at the pub with a group of friends for our annual Xmas reunion. Super atmosphere and the beer was spot on (adnams). Staff were really friendly and helpful regarding a lost property situation.
