The Woolpack Inn’s relaxed and comfortable atmosphere offers the warm welcome you’d expect from one of Cumbria’s most historic inns.
With the great range of real ale, many locally-brewed, you would expect from a CAMRA inn together with speciality ciders and lagers, a huge range of spirits and cocktails and plenty of non-alcoholic options, the Woolpack Inn is the place to drink in Eskdale.

Our pub offers cosy corners around a wood burning stove, and somewhere for everyone to find the perfect space. We have lots of smaller tables for couples or families, with bigger tables dotted throughout for groups of friends to congregate. Perhaps we’ll find you propping up our new mahogany bar enjoying the perfect pint.

We’re perfectly placed at the foot of Hardknott Pass for those of you passing through, and right at the bottom of Scafell and Scafell Pike for walkers staying over.

If you’re feeling competitive, we have a games room with pool table (for all the big kids) and if you need to keep in touch there’s free wifi available throughout the building.

Beer Gardenevents

For the summer months, and those bonus sunny winter days we have an attractive beer garden and a large children’s play area. There’s a secure place to store bikes and a room to dry clothes, and well behaved dogs are also welcome in the bar area.

The Woolpack hosts regular events throughout the year from wine tasting to music nights. See our events pages for more information or the diary and events pages for what’s on in the wider area.
