The Grasshopper is a must visit, an urban, all-day, multi-occasion café, bar and dining room situated in Parkstone, half way between Poole and Bournemouth.  A real part of the local community, it is a vibrant and popular space where locals and visitors alike come to belong, relax, share and celebrate.

We’re open from brunch to bedtime and there’s always something going on, so whether you’re looking for brunch, coffee and cakes, light lunches, afternoon tea, after work drinks, romantic or celebratory dinners (large and small) or Sunday Lunches we can do it all.

Opening Times

Monday-Saturday 9am-11pm
Sunday 9am - 10.30pm

One summer a grasshopper was hopping about, chirping and singing happily. Some ants passed carrying kernels of corn.

“Come and play with me” said the grasshopper. 

“We storing food for the winter” said the ants “you should do the same.” 

“No, winter is far away and it is too glorious day to work” sang the Grasshopper
