A very comfortable place to hang out... and in a lovely part of New Hampshire! It has a great bar (2 of them , actually) and myriad different rooms (and an outdoor biergarten) in which to eat. Their extensive menu has a bit of something for everyone. Today they had 5 regular biers and 2 seasonals (3 of which we tried and were quite tasty). Food was A-1, too. Best bet: get a room at the Inn in the same building; not far to crawl to your room from the bar (especially if you grab a growler to go!)! Prosit!!

Came here last Saturday with family in friends for a quick lunch before heading to the beach at Echo Lake.
As we arrived, saw the nice expansive terrace but since it was full, the in-laws had reserved a table indoors :(. We enter into the inn part than make our way to the back into the actual brewpub. A couple little nooks to eat and we were seated in the far back.
The decor is a mix of inn (wallpaper) and brewpub which gives it an ecclectic look. Doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to the different objects plastered along the walls. I liked it but my wife (she's an interior decorator) did not.
The beer selection was good but there was only one seasonal (Raspberry) and no cask, bummer! I ordered the Pig's Ear which was very serviceable but my father-in-law and my wife ordered the Old Man Stout and that was very tasty.
Food was very good and well priced. I had the special, BBQ Pork Loins, my daughter had the corn dog and my wife had an amazing Sweet Potato Raviolli. You have to try it when you come to visit. Some of the meals looked a little pricey well others were well priced so i rated it in between.
Service was not too great from our waitress. When taking our order, we specified separate bills after she had started writing. 90% of the time the waiter/waitress doesn't mind but this one had an annoyed look and was grumpy throughout our lunch. She also forgot my father-in-law's beer and we had to ask amother waitress to provide it since he was already half way through his meal and it didn't look like she was going to bring it. I would have rated the service lower but all others were very agreable.
I ended up buying a nice pint glass (4.50$) and have to say i thoroughly enjoyed my visit despite some rude service. Definitely worth a stopover.

One of my few "cannot be improved" atmosphere scores. This is because Woodstock inn and brewery has what must be the most possible atmospheres of a brewpub.
large, noisy bar area with big TV's and rowdy patrons (I remember a drink-spilling rager who turned out to be a waitress in the front-room restaurant.)
intimate bar area with coasters laminated into the immense wood slab bar... referred to the inn as its "brewpub," it is probably the best place for full-on beer sampling.
a small family-like restaurant area where the kids will probably be the most comfortable.
a seriously delightful outdoor seating area (the worst service of the place smoothed over by the outstanding surroundings) in the warmer months.
and the aforementioned restaurant which will sell the brewery's beers but feels more appropriate for breakfasts and meals with teetotalers.
Not only all that, but this is a working inn where I have spent a delightful weekend hiking by day and sampling beer after beer at night.
The beers themselves err on the side of people pleasers with few subtlies. Hop head will be probably disappointed with all the red, wheat and light ales flying around. Pemi pale is not a permanent offering. Sigh. I find the beers tasty in the surroundings, a case where the establishment betters the flavors of its beers simply by existing.
There is also so much food to choose from that I give the something -for-everyone menu a 4.5 score, without ever having sampled the whole thing. I don't think one person could. But fans of hamburgers who haven't had an original burger in a while, and could care less about caloric intake might look out for the half-pound served-in-an-enormous-oval roll "Guido burger" covered in pepperoni, provelone, marinara and peppers or "California Sunshine burger" (my health-conscious brother in CA would die if he ate one of these) with roasted red peppers, artichokes & grilled portabello mushrooms sauteed with basil pesto. There are several other enormous burger choices; I can only think of this as burger heaven.
Easy to find at the west end of the Kangamagus, this is my favorite inn-with-a-brewery in the US.

A beautiful brwpub, restaurant and inn located in the Mt. Washington area of New Hampshire.
We stayed in a very nice room in one of the annex buildings, across from the brewpub entrance. Rustic decor, complete with flat screen TV and gas fireplace.
The main building was a 200 year old building that housed the restaurant, additional rooms and the brew pub.
The brew pub itself featured and large three sided bar, high table seating, lcd tvs and a rustic woodsy/sports bar decor.
The approximately six house beers were all pretty good and the pub food tasty. There is a second smaller bar down stairs from the main bar that seems to stay open later. Small and cozy, it is a good drinking location.
The complimentry breakfast was amazing and the service excellent.

My wife and I spent the weekend to do some skiing; we stayed here because it's close to both Loon and Cannon. I'd recommend the Woodstock Inn for some nice, relaxing down time. The brewpub/bar consists of three dining areas and two bars. There's also a separate, more upscale, restaurant in the inn called the Clement Room. The brewpub/bar was once a railroad station and, as such, has lots of small areas and warrens. Upstairs there's the bar and two areas for dining. The dining rooms are very kitschy and comfortable. The bar upstairs is laminated with old postcards under the laminate. Nice historical touch. There's a third dining area down a ramp off the bar, and the area they call the pub is down some stairs off the bar. The downstairs pub has a copper top bar with old beer bottles and cans as decoration. Again a nice, different, historical touch. There's plenty of TVs in both bars. Upstairs there's a small gift shop that sells pre-filled growlers and Tshirts.
Since it was winter, the Wassail Ale was one of the selections. Also on tap was Loon Golden Ale, Old Man Oatmeal Stout, Pemi Pale Ale, Pig's Ear Brown Ale, Red Rack Ale, and White Mountain Wreasel Wheat. I think their light beer was also on tap. For the most part the beers were rather pedestrian (see reviews). My standout was the brown ale.
The menu is enormous. For the most part, whatever you could think up is on the menu. The portions are generous, and the food is good. Service in the restaurant areas and the bars was excellent, even on a busy winter weekend before the Super Bowl.
We had a great weekend at The Woodstock Inn. Would not hesitate to go back again.

I stopped by the Woodstock Inn multiple times last week with mixed results. Once at dinner which was an ok experience and once at lunch which was excellent. Woodstock Inn is a restaurant attached to an inn. They have a big back room with a small bar, plenty of tvs, and several side rooms. It is a really interesting space. They also have awesome patio seating that gives great views of a nice New England mountain town main street. I really love the atmosphere here. The crowd is a mix of locals, bikers, and hikers. The service is hit or miss. Both servers knew their beer, but attentiveness varied. It is a pet peeve of mine if a server does not stop by and ask if I want a second glass. I was disappointed with the beer selection only because they distribute where I live. They offer about seven different in house brews. Most of which they bottle and distribute in Massachusetts. Many are very tasty and I am a fan of their quality. They set a high standard, so perhaps my expectations were over inflated. I was hoping to find something they did not distribute, but that was not the case. The food was also hit or miss. I loved the mac and cheese and seafood chowder, was indifferent about the chicken parm, and not a fan of the veggie burger. Overall, I did drive 45 minutes to go back and I would go again. The atmosphere is amazing, the beer is tasty, and the mac is divine.

Fairly big building with space for 2 bars and 2 (or 3 depending on your ideas of space) separate dinning areas. Brewpub is on lower floor and is simple, rustic and divey. Upstairs has a slightly more uperscale dinning room attached to a larger space with noisy bar area with some seating, and a decent sized dinning area which screams family friendly.
The house beers cover your standard styles (pale, brown, stout etc.) and most are lighter in body and flavor to appeal to the masses. Seasonal brews appear to be slightly more adventurous.
Food menu is expansive and has something that will please anyone. Simply constructed and just good comfort and bar food.
Service is hit or miss, some of the bartenders come across as surly with the tourists and can be inattentive. Table servers much more friendly and welcoming.
The beer is decent enough and the food tasty enough to make it a good lively spot to hang out at night when in the area, as the remainder of the towns of N. Woodstock and Lincoln tend to shut down fairly early.

We sat downstairs in the small pub area. The bartender was very friendly and got us samples , beers, peanuts and food quickly.
Nice ,rustic, warm place.
The menu was extensive and the food was really good. I had the London Broil which was excellent and my girlfriend had maple sesame scallops, which were also very tasty. Portions were pretty generous and the prices reasonable. The peanuts were good too !
I had their Pemi Pale Ale both on cask and regular tap, ... also tried their Brown ale. The beers were very good.
A really nice stop after a grueling White Mountain Hike.

On our way up to a tour of northern Vermont breweries the day before VBF, we stopped in at Woodstock Inn Brewery for lunch. I remember enjoying Woodstock beers at the Strange Brew shortly after turning 21 and I've been wanting to visit ever since.
We rolled in a few minutes after they opened and given the beautiful weather and the great front patio, we sat out under the shade and amongst the gardens by the road. It's really one of the nicest bar patios I've had the pleasure of sitting in--big pine trees, flowers in bloom and breaking up the outdoor space along with views of the slow-paced street and a glimpse into the side of the brewhouse. We poked around the bar a bit, and while it's hard to tell in the middle of the day, it looked like a great place to spend an evening. There are two bars really--the big, main bar and a smaller, lower bar by the patio. Both looked great and the spaces were eclectic and rambling without feeling cluttered.
We got a sampler of six beers, most of which I was familiar with, having had many of Woodstock's mainstays on-tap and in bottles several times. In addition, we tried the cask red, which was very nice. All the beers were good, easily-approachable and sessionable--nothing particularly breathtaking, but all solid and enjoyable.
The food menu was diverse and long, and reminded me a bit of the menu I've seen at places like Vermont Pub & Brewery. My friend ordered a special burger made with local beef and cheese and I ordered the spent grain burger. We both opted for the house-made spent grain bread, which was excellent; as delicious and hardy as the burgers were, the bread was wonderful in its own right.
Service was prompt, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The food was reasonable, but not cheap, but the sampler at something like $5.50 was a steal.
I'm really glad I finally made it to the Woodstock Inn. I go up to Moat Mountain every summer, and next year I'll definitely look to make a trip across the White Mountains to visit Woodstock again, hopefully having a chance to sit outside as well as enjoy a pint or two at the bar.

The menu at the Woodstock Inn is huge. They have everything from pizza to filet mignon. Prices are very reasonable and the food is good. However, they were a bit skimpy with the toppings for my burger. At the time I was there they only had a few of their beers on tap. I tried the Pemi Pale Ale and found it to be a tasty beer with a nice combination of hops and malts. I've also had their Pigs Ear brown ale on several occassions and would highly recommend it. Free samples are available for any of their beers if you ask your server. The restaurant is rather dark and is located towards the back of the Inn. I thought the layout of the place was a bit odd and hard to get around without walking into somebody. Also, 6 packs of their beer used to be available in northern NH, but are now hard to find.
