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.

The beers at the brewery tend to be more enjoyable to drink than they are from the bottle. It may be because many of the bottle ones are brewed under contract bu another brewery. The eatery is part of the Common Man chain of high quality restaurants in New Hampshire. There are some unique but also some old stand-by meals to choose from off the menu. Soup in a bread bowl is always a good choice.

Big place,entered from the front, kept going back to get to the bar area. Rustic charm, awesome fireplace in the far right corner past the bar, imagine that must be a great spot in the winter to sit and enjoy a beer.
Outside seating/ bar area was full, beautiful garden and tables, great spot to sit outside.

Service was friendly but slow. Not sure if it was the waitress or the bartender that was slow.
Had the sampler, most beers were okay, pig ear brown was good, 4000ipa was decent. APA was out , but new batch coming out the next day.

Locals in the bar were welcoming and friendly, chatted about expansion of the place over the last several years and renovation of the bar area.

Overall, a place I would recommend to stop in and have a beer if you have time and meet some locals. Beer was ok, but good variety. Always look to support local beers when traveling.

Cheers

Love the Pig's Ear brown ale @ Woodstock... Always look forward to it after coming off the trail in Franconia Notch. This was the first trip with my son and I was a bit unsure. But they really went out-of-their-way to accommodate BOTH grown-ups and kids. Still the most solid, reliable option when we're in the area.

decent brewpub with a sort of rustic, homey feel to it; kind of what you'd expect in ski country. the family rents a place in the area every winter, so while we were up one week my wife and I stopped in for dinner. it was a Monday, and we were a little ahead of the dinner crowd so seating was not an issue - plenty of it. food-wise, the menu is essentially American comfort food. I ordered the chili for an app and was sufficiently stuffed by the time my main course arrived (mac and cheese served with pulled pork). wife had chicken and shrimp basilica. everything was good - comfort food good, not award-winning good. no issues with the service, though it wasn't memorable either. as for the beer, they had a handful on tap, all brewed onsite. the pemi pale ale was ok, while their wassail ale was better if nothing to write home about. although I did purchase a bottle from the gift shop to bring home, so that might be a poor choice of words. I was just trying to be a good patron. :) price-wise, not exactly cheap (not much in ski country is) but it won't break the bank. worth a stop if you're in the area looking for some grub and a decent beer, though be forewarned it assuredly gets packed on weekends.

I made a trip during the past weekend to check out the new construction and the crew managed to get the new bar up and running somewhere around 6/30/12. The rest of the building is still in the framed stage. It was the weekend so the crew was not working so the atmosphere was better than it would have been with a bunch of background construction work going on. Everyone still enters at the original entryway and walks up the landing to where the hostess station is but everything from that point on is new. There is a tidy spacious stage area for the entertainment where the original bar stood and the new bar stands on the right hand side. It is sizable and could easily fit 3 times the people that the original fit. There was no decoration to the place as it had just opened. It was purely functional and smelled of fresh cut wood --> Enough atmosphere for me. Wifey and I had some Pemi Pales and I had my pre-requisite chili in the bread boule, my perfect lunch. As the season is just starting the help was busy getting up to speed with the crowds that descend on the place during the summer so we cut them some slack if items came out a bit slowly. I will be going back during the weekend of July 27th and will amend with the latest.

Stopped in for a beer. Service was awful, we were ignored for what felt like 15 minutes. Two rounds of drinks and we were there for about 90 minutes.

Oatmeal stout was good and the patio was a nice place for a beer, but we were told that the area was for dining only, for future reference. Unfortunate. Perhaps there is an area for just drinking outside, but I didn't see one. Service was not good, we received a look of confusion form the hostess after she finally decided to address us standing in front of her, as if she was wondering why we would be there. We were then directed to another hostess who gave us similar treatment. Ten minutes after sitting down, we met our waitress, who took 20 to bring us drinks.

Beer was good, as was the root beer. Didn't have anything to eat, we were afraid of what the wait might be like! Good selection of draft beers and a big menu.

The food menu was a bit pricey, but we didn't dine so it had no effect. Beer was reasonably priced. $8 bucks for a pint with souvenir glass included. $4-5 for a normal pint.

Unfortunately the place was being renovated, so the atmosphere was no good. I can imagine it being a pretty cool place normally, though.

What can really be said about The Woodstock Inn Brewery. Growing up, we skied in the area for over a decade and this place remains a memory of great times and great tastes. The food is great with almost anything to satisfy the pickiest of eaters. But the food is only the accompaniment to the large selection of fine beers offered on a daily basis. Always changing, Woodstock Inn manages to offer a nice balance between their own creations and their competitions best. There is always a new and interesting selection on tap and the classics are available by the bottle for enjoyment anytime. Crowded at times and a long wait on occasion hardly affect the quality of this establishment. If you're ever skiing at Loon Mtn or Cannon Mtn, this is a place you want to have dinner at after a long day on the slopes.

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.

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.

I am almost 30 years old. When I lived back east my parents always stopped at the Woodstock Inn after skiing one of the many mountains close by. I always loved the names of some of the beers (Pigs Ear, Weasel Wheat, Loon Golden, Oldman Oatmeal). Most of these names at a young age got me wondering why people would drink beer like Bud, Miller or Coors when there were these beers with such cool names.

When I finally turned 21 I had my dad drive from Lowell MA all the way to N.Woodstock NH to have a beer at the Woodstock Inn. I was so excited to finally drink a beer with my dad at one of our favorite places. The atmosphere is wonderful here. Winter, spring summer or fall. Place just shouts old school NH feeling.

The beer here is pretty good. No it does not make some crazy ass special beers. No they dont make a huge % abv beer for you to go and get drunk on. They make quality beer for anyone to enjoy. They have nice seasonals, a great everyday line up and have some tap only beers once and awhile. A few years ago they started bottling their beer which was great.

The food is good as well. They have great pub apps, 3-5 happy hour, a huge menu with everything you can think of on it.

If you are looking for a place to bring your family on a ski trip, take your family hiking or just want to get away and relax this is a perfect place for a beer lover in NH.

I miss you Woodstock Inn...keep up the good work.

I've been a drop-in at the bar and I've also stayed at the Inn. I must say that as an Inn guest you certainly get treated well. You have a comped breakfast in the dining room next to the station as well as the wonderful privilege of making reservations at the Station for dinner. With waits into the hours for a table, the reservations alone are worth them money. Why spend all of your time in the White Mountains waiting for a beer when there's so much to see and do in the area? If you are staying at the Inn you just walk up to the front of the line, show your room key and get seated promptly.

Concerning the beer, I've never had a bad one here. The selection is pretty common to a brewpub with selections from light to dark and a few seasonal beers thrown into the mix. The beer is good, and I always stop in for a drink and some food if I'm in or going through the area.

The atmosphere, food, beer and service are wonderful. Too bad everyone in New England knows about this little gem!

Atmosphere: Greeted by a great beer-loving guy up front, very kind and funny (in charge of selling beer in growlers it looked like as well). Inside is a log cabin / bar feel. Tables all over and a bar section right up front.

Quality and Service: It wasn't too busy, but our server was kind of slow at times, but good overall. We were seated in an off-section, so I felt away from everyone. A little too private for my liking. Nice people all over, though. One thing that really upset me about the back room were the tables made out of old sewing tables. You could lose a toe or finger just sitting down.

Selection: They have all of their offerings, which is a wide variety, and all the beers are tasty. Seemed to have a bunch of BMC too for the vacationers. But beer lovers are covered.

Food: I went in not knowing what to expect, but all the food looked and tasted delicious. I had the best chicken salad sandwich ever that went well with a Double Rye IPA. Lots to choose from: seafood, sandwiches, bar food, and pizza, plus much more.

Value: Good prices overall, definitely get your money's worth. Worth the trip.

For my birthday this year my wife (bless her) booked a weekend getaway for us at the Woodstock Inn for their "brewer's weekend" package, which meant I got to help brew a batch of beer, drink as much as I wanted without an extra charge, and have a fabulous beer dinner with dishes made with their house beers and paired with other regional craft offerings. The whole experience was great, and I'd recommend it to any BA who (like me) is thinking about taking the plunge into home brewing and wants to get a chance to talk to some knowledgeable people and have tons of questions answered. But I digress. Here's an objective review of the establishment:

A: There are really two different sections of this place, with the Woodstock Inn dining room up front having a classic old-fashioned B&B vibe, while the Woodstock Station bar and restaurant in the back is done all in wood with lots of beer and outdoor themed decor and live music on the weekends. Both are good examples of their disparate styles. Additionally, down a level is the brewpub, which is really a mixture of the two, as the tables and bar are built under the porch of the original house while the brewing equipment is housed in a newly constructed area that matches the more rustic decor of the Station. It's a fun and inviting scene overall.

Q: Solid beers across the board, with the emphasis on smooth, sessionable beers. They offer a full range of traditional American/English styles, from a pale wheat to an oatmeal stout, all of which are drinkable, and some of which are quite good. No complaints here - oh, and the batch of Pig's Ear brown ale that will be going on tap in late November '09 will have an extra little bit of hand-crafted love from yours truly.

Service: Awesome all around.

Selection: See above; I didn't venture into their bottle list at all, so I'm not sure how extensive their non-house-brewed craft selection is.

Food: Ranged from wholly solid appetizers (amazingly hot sauce for the wings - you've been warned) and tasty, spicy chili in the brewpub to an fabulously crafted and presented beer dinner. The real star, though, was the breakfast menu (all items on which are included in the room rate if you stay the night): it was incredibly hard to make a decision on our first morning, but we loved what we had so much that we had the same things the next - french toast with genuine NH maple syrup for my wife and the King's Choice (eggs Benedict with HUGE cuts of filet mignon instead of Canadian bacon) for me. Incredible.

Value: not cheap, but totally worth it; value options available for all meals, as well.

Cheers!

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.

I've been here at the height of the ski season and after hiking during the slow season. Bottom line is that this place is only as fun as the people you bring with you.

The pub itself doesn't open until 1pm so if you arrive sooner you'll end up eating at the restaurant. They both have the same menu but the restaurant has atrociously ugly wallpaper and and all the ambiance of your Grandma's dining room.

The food is average at best, actually it's pretty bad but what it lacks in quality it makes up in quantity. The two items that come to mind are the "Death by Sandwich," and the "Death by Burger." I finished a death by sandwich and it hurt.

The beers are above average (Oatmeal Stout) to bad (Kanc Country Maple Porter). Depends on what you get.

Regardless, Woodstock Inn is a go-to when I'm up snowboarding and hiking.

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.

We stopped in here after a long day of skiing. The service was good, the beers were nice, I had the weasle wheat, which turned out to be a very drinkable beer, and the atmosphere was cool. On the outside it resembles a traditional farmhouse but inside it has all of the warm inviting style of a nice brew pub and restaurant. We ended up staying much longer than we should have, considering we didn't try their food stuffs. Took home a souvenier glass and a T-shirt, both things I don't normally do. Just a great ending to a nice day. If you happen to be up that way and skiing Loon or one of the other area resorts I recommend a stop in.

I absolutely love the ambiance of this place. It is an old train station, so it is one of the coolest looking places I've been in New England. The food is good, not great, but it really is just a comfort food restaurant, so that was expected. The Pig's Ear Brown Ale was delicious and I had Pemi Pale Ale to warm up for lunch. I had the Croute Route Wellington and ordered an Old Man Oatmeal Stout to enjoy with that. I didn't have much time to tour the brewery and sample more of their beers because a Nor'eastah was on its way!!!

After a delightful romp through Clark's Trading Post in Lincoln New Hampshire (You really gotta take the kids on the train ride through "wolf Man's" forest and then catch the Bear show) Which is something Il ike to do every few years, we headed just down the road, maybe five minutes to Woodstock New Hampshire for dinner at the woodstck Inn/Station and Brewery. The atmosphere inside is classic and Rustic, White mountain's style, with a wooden Locomotive on tracks that is 20' above the floor. An Impressive collection of Old bottles are collected on the walls dating back to the turn of the century (not the most recent one). The ceilings a are very high with windows for extra sun. There's plenty of dining space and an average size bar and six brews on-tap and usually cask offering. They even offer cheaper domestic brews...but what's the point of that?? The service was actually really nice and really fast. I first ordered a White mountain Weasel Wheat ale to go along with my main dish which was the Maple glazed Scallops (Killer!!) I then ordered the Oatmeal stout as desert. This was a fun, rustic feeling Brewery with all of the charm you would expect from Vacation-land New Hampshire.

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.

I visited this place while in new hampshire hoping to find some good beer and was heartily rewarded . They had a good selection of craft brews that crossed a basic styles . I particularly enjoyed their sample set up where you get to select several beers instead of having to wait to try them . The food was good nothing outstanding but the beer was what I went for . The atmosphere was great an old train station and other things joined together to form a bar/ restaraunt/ hotel . It also had an open display of the brewing equipment which as I have said before is my favorite . They also offer brewers weekends which you get to brew along with the brewpub staff something to check out in the future .

Went here on a tuesday night during school vacation week, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Driving through town was dark and quiet, but this place was bumping.
I am not sure if this place really used to be a train station, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was. It was like a huge wooden house with a strange set up of rooms. They actually have three distinct places to eat - the bar, the restaurant, and then the fancier restaurant. I went to the regular one.
Lively atmosphere, many kids around. Nice cabin-like feel seems right during the winter time. They have a big menu, but as expected my choices as a vegetarian were just a handful. I got a couple of appetizers - the artichoke dip and the sweet potato ravioli. They looked mediocre but tasted pretty good and were a fair price. I got a veggie burger with special toppings, and that was pretty good too.
The beer available was a wheat, a "golden" ale, a pale ale, a red, a brown, a stout, and their seasonal "Wassail." I tried most of them and in general was impressed. They all tasted rather fresh and flavorful. The wheat was very light and filtered and did not show that much wheat character, but it was crisp and refreshing. The Wassail had some higher-alcohol character and was too estery, but not awful. The pale ale and the stout were the most enjoyable.
Service took a little longer to bring the beers than I would have liked, and could have been friendlier, but not bad and was good at answering questions about the beer.
A good place that I would return to, mainly for the beers and the warm family atmosphere.

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 stayed at the Inn for a couple nights mid-week. It was pretty quiet. The rooms are beautiful and the restaurant is fantastic. The brewpub isn't as good as the other restaurant (Clement Room I think), but it's good pub fare. They had 6 or 7 beers on tap. I had their Maple Porter, which I thought was good, but a bit thin. The prices are very reasonable. If you go to stay in the Inn, their off-season is the winter (surprisingly, considering how close they are to Cannon and Loon ski areas and not a whole lot farther from Bretton Woods or Waterville Valley).

I returned after a day of skiing at Cannon to pick up a growler of their winter beer, Wassail Ale. Unfortunately, they don't do growler fills from the tap, but have them pre-filled when bottling the beer. They didn't fill any growlers with the Wassail, but suggested a convenience store up the street that had 4 packs of it. The people were always very friendly and helpful. The service was great, even when they didn't have what I wanted, they suggested where I could get it to go.
