The Grasshopper


0.5 miles
139-141 Bournemouth Road, Parkstone, Poole, BH14 9HT

Situated in the popular suburb of Parkstone, The Grasshopper is easily reachable from Bournemouth and Poole, but also attracts visitors from much further afield thanks to its welcoming staff, well-priced quality fare and striking interior. As part of the Hall & Woodhouse family its homely values are evident throughout the venue. Recently refurbished, The Grasshopper seamlessly blends traditional charm with a fresh, modern feel – think wood panelling and retro antiquities, paired with chandeliers and large indoor palm trees. The pub’s relaxed ambience draws you in with its warmth and comfort.

Boasting an extensive and varied menu, the emphasis is on traditional pub fare with a contemporary interpretation. Add to this a frequently changing specials list and you’re sure to find something that takes your fancy. My partner and I enjoyed starters of wild mushrooms atop sourdough bread, and scrumptious garlic tiger prawns. For our mains, I plumped for the perfectly pink British rose veal tenderloin, accompanied by Dauphinoise potatoes, wilted greens, honey-roasted carrots and sherry and wild mushroom cream sauce. My partner enthused over his beautiful pan-seared duck breast complemented by fruity sauce, which he paired with a pint of award-winning Golden Champion ale. We  rounded things off with an ever-popular lemon tart, and a delicious selection of Salcombe dairy ice cream. We’ll certainly be returning to further explore the menu, and perhaps sample the tempting brunch offering.
