Another fine ale house situated just outside the city walls, the Woolpack is a fairly basic single bar boozer. The carpeted room sees the servery running down the right hand side, with a dark wood and red tile counter and lovely stained glass canopy bearing the pub’s name, giving the space a bit of character. Curved banquette seating is available under the front windows, in a space decorated with artwork based on book covers and some Timothy Taylor posters. More banquette seating is available along the left hand wall, in the area opposite the bar, supplemented with a good number of low stools. A bar billiards table stands at the rear of the room, under which a couple of friendly lurchers (not whippets) were resting. The room has been decorated with a few framed gig tickets, some album covers and various posters promoting live sport, with a TV screen turned on during our visit and broadcasting a tennis match. A beer glass collection runs along a high shelf and there are a fair few pump clips on display as well. Music played quietly in the background throughout our stay and I also noticed various board games and beer guides with which to while away the hours.
A good Yorkshire based ale range comprised Taylors Landlord, Revolutions House of Fun Milk Stout, Great Newsome Hops in the Spring, Acorn Blonde and Roosters Yankee. The Milk Stout was very enjoyable and the bar staff were polite and patient, dealing with much dithering at the bar and then balancing precariously on a table in order to capture the perfect group photo for us pub crawlers.
I really liked the simple, unpretentious look and feel to this place and could quite easily imagine spending a good few hours in here working along the pumps. The basic presentation might not be to everyone’s taste but I felt very comfortable in here and hope to return some time soon.

Cannot really add anything to the comments gone before except to concur that I also found this one a nice single room pub with a good range of beer and accommodating bar keep.
Decent enough range of five ales and two ciders and I went for the Revolution House of Fun, a chocolate Milk Stout, which was in good condition.
As others have mentioned a dog friendly pub with a couple of large ones in situ kipping under the bar billiards table, or at least they were until we all bowled in..

The Woolpack Inn is a single room pub with a bar that supports six hand pumps and some premium lager fonts. There is a plasma screen on the wall for showing live sports and underneath is a bar billiards table. Sleeping under this table were a couple of lurchers. I must admit that I was disappointed when I found out that they weren’t whippets. There was some background music playing, but this was drowned out by the large group of PuG crawlers that I entered with. The barman reminded me of Frank Gallagher, but he was a very friendly bloke who took some pictures of our group.
This is a dog friendly pub that is open from 17:30 until 23:30 Monday to Wednesday, 17:30 to midnight on Thursdays, 16:00 until midnight on Fridays, 12:30 until midnight on Saturdays and 14:00 until 23:00 on Sundays. Only over 18’s are permitted at all times. Various events are held throughout the week, including: open mic on Mondays; speed quizzing on Tuesdays; free bar billiards on Wednesdays; Blues on Thursdays.
I enjoyed my visit and would pop back in again of passing.
