The Grasshopper

The Grasshopper

A cosmopolitan town pub in the heart of Poole

Recently restored to its original glory as a majestic Dorset road house, the Grasshopper is now a cornerstone of this fashionable part of Poole. With its many quirky nooks, crannies, rooms and spaces, the Grasshopper revives the true spirit and purpose of the pub - as a place for the whole community and for all occasions. From special get-togethers in their dining room and casual catch-ups in the pantry to long lazy days on their terraces, it really is everyone’s local. Keep an eye out, as this pub features many artefacts from the old Hall & Woodhouse Brewery in Blandford, including the Victorian copper mash tun plates in the entrance lobby and some early Victorian bottles discovered in the Maltings during the 2015 restoration.
