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.

Stopped in twice during vacation in NH and VT. Beer was overall of good quality and the food was standard. Atmosphere was really nice...sitting outdoors and having a few beers in the small town was really relaxing

I used to love the Woodstock Inn and would stop there after leaving the woods from backpacking in the White Mountains with my friends. Their food is pretty good,and they had some great beer on tap, with the Oatmeal Stout being my particular favorite! However in the last couple of years they have gone downhill big time!
I do not think they have much (if any) of a tap line cleaning schedule! ALL their beers on tap taste like FUNK every time I go now! I would just think it was a fluke and would order another different beer, and same thing, nasty funky beer. Everyone else I was with noticed it too! And it hasn't just been on one occasion, like I said EVERY time I have gone lately over the past couple of years, can't be a fluke!
They seem very busy all the time, so maybe they don't think they have the time to clean their lines, but if they keep it up I don't see it being busy much longer! Especially since there is another brewery that has opened next door in Lincoln (One Love, although I haven't tasted there yet).
I hope they adopt a scheduled frequent line cleaning policy soon, but I won't know anytime soon since I gave them enough of a chance and have written them off completely.
I won't be going back anytime soon!

I have gone for dinner a few times, good for the area but not a place i would seek out. Lots of outdoor seating, the beers were so so and the food was decent.

Stopped in here last Friday night (6/05/15) for dinner with my family. Surprisingly not busy. Sat at a table booth right near the windows. Nice bar area, with smaller rooms for seating with antique decorations. Service was great, as our waitress was friendly and checked in a few times. Food was good and enjoyed by all. Beers were decent, but none really blew us away. They offer 5 glass flights for $5.75. Small gift shop at the front selling beer and glasses. Brought a Woodstock growler from home and filled it for $9.50. A fun stop to see once, but not a place I'd head back to anytime soon. Wasn't that great.

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.
