The Grasshopper | Vibrant cafe,bar & dining in Poole, Parkstone.

A contemporary venue for all occasions in the heart of Parkstone

The Grasshopper was one of Hall & Woodhouse’s earliest pubs joining the family back in the 19th century. Originally called ‘The Half Way House Hotel’ because it was halfway between Poole and Bournemouth, its name changed in 1997 and in 2018 the Grasshopper was fully transformed into a fantastic contemporary, multi-occasion and multi area venue, serving the needs of the local community in and around Parkstone, Poole and Bournemouth. This was the year H&W sold their old Victorian brewery and there are many brewery artefacts integrated into the Grasshopper’s design, including the bar area, which contains a fire made from the copper kettles that boiled the beer, walls constructed from barrel staves, pressure gauges and a black board from the old brew house. In addition, vast bellows from the old Maltings are now a coffee table in our new Common Room.

We’re open from 9.00am until bedtime, serving our Colourful Coffee, snacks and a comprehensive selection of main meals from our extensive range of menus including brunch, a free from menu (featuring dishes free from gluten and dairy products, as well as a range of vegan and vegetarian options), dinner and Sunday Lunch, so why not come down and see what all the fuss is about!

We’re open 6 days a week and can’t wait to see you!

Please note you’ll need to book in advance, either online or via the phone, for all food and drink visits.

We’ve also made some changes to keep you safe. For more details of what to expect when you visit, please click here.
