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 are opening our pub doors for outdoor bookings only from Wednesday 14th April. Please refer to our opening times below and we look forward to welcoming you.
