Having had to suffer the screeching harridan and poor beer in the Dove, and the complete lack of service and beer in the Spread, we were desperate for this quasi-suburban pub to deliver and it did - in spades. It’s lovely old building on a hill and looks the part on approach, sitting on the fork of a junction on a street full of rather grand houses. A bizarre layout inside with a small main room to the left, a tiny room on the right and a tiny serving area, all quite woody and traditional and almost country pub in its feel. Three fairly mainstream ales in the form of St Austell Proper Job (NBSS 4), Adnams Ghost Ship (4) and Southwold served up by an efficient cabal of young ladies. We decided to sit outside with most of the other punters and it was very pleasant with a nice cross-section of locals. Easily the best pub - beer quality wise - in Ipswich, beating the Fat Cat. Turnover is key!
Visited early August.

Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Woolpack

The Woolpack is situated in a wedge-shaped area defined by a road junction and close to the popular Christchurch Road.

Tables are in the wedge-shaped area at the front of the pub and as it is surrounded by roads, it's not the quietest of drinking environments. The interior is much more traditional with 3 small rooms.

On arrival, I couldn't see any free tables and there was another couple waiting for one. However, it was only about a minute before two tables became free. However, on instructed to register with the NHS app, I nearly lost the table to other arrivals, who weren't asked to scan. With the roads being so close, it is easy for people to simply wander in and take a seat.

Ghost Ship & Southwold Bitter are the regular ales. Guests yesterday were London Pride & Proper Job.

Food looked like traditional pub grub and smelt good, but there was no time for me to indulge.

Well worth the short uphill walk from the town centre, this nice-looking pub sits in the fork of a road junction. The interior has been sympathetically refurbished with slight gastro leanings, but happily retaining a good multi-room layout. At the front is a small snug, with a larger room used for board games off to the side and a tabled dining area to the rear. A further small bar in the other front corner completes the range round the central servery. There is a car park to the rear and tables out by the road, which does not seem too busy. The food is perhaps slightly pretentious but looked good. Draught beers, which are now listed over each bar, were Adnams Southwold & Broadside and Butcombe Original and seemed in excellent condition (Cask Marque accreditation). Craft stuff also available.
