Nice mid terrace pub.Found the interior tiling a bit ugly.Busy pub with a large area to the rear. Three cask beers on but forgot to note but the Hackney(possibly) was decent.

A popular pub for the young professionals who live in this very trendy part of London,the interior is open plan with a wooden floor,L shaped bar and seating booths running down the left wall below some attractive glazed tiling.A couple of flatscreens were showing World Cup rugby but at no great volume,while the hubub did bounce around the interior and with added muzak if felt quite noisy.However up the spiral staircase there is a quieter high ceiling room with fitted benches running around the walls and dark flock wallpaper giving a gothic feel while two small fireplaces at either end remain as features as well as a good ceiling mural.
Food is popular here (mains £9-£13 ) and you can eat anywhere as long as you can find a free table. There is a decent sized walled beer garden at the rear with artificial grass.A real suntrap and very popular.
At the bar there are 3 handpumps serving a house Woolpack Pale(provenance unknown),Brockley Golden Ale and a decent ELB Cowcatcher.
Lively , hip and serving it's local community well IMHO this is the best place for a beer if wandering up Bermondsey Street.

The Woolpack is a decent looking pub that is set in a terrace,it is almost opposite the Garrison.
Once inside there is an L shaped room with the bar facing,there is comfy grenn leather bench seating to the front and in bays running down the left side.
There were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Woolpack Pale Ale which was a decent drink,but i dont know who brews this beer,the other beer was Hackney american Pale Ale.
Decent background music was playing.
There is a large garden to the rear which is unusual for this area of London.
I quite liked this pub one i could settle in for a few.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Woolpack

'L'-shaped bar with very dark furniture and decor so rather gloomy. Mostly low booths, supplemented by upstairs seating access via a spiral staircase (not visited). OK patio beer garden to the rear. Open for breakfast at the weekends, and a relaxed atmosphere on my Sunday afternoon visit. Three handpumps, with a sensible choice of beer styles: Sambrook's Pumphouse Pale, Dorking Brewery Number One and London Fields Black Path Porter.
