user reviews of Grasshopper, Southport

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Another visit to the Grasshopper yesterday. This has to be one of Merseyside's best pubs, if not its best. Staff are always friendly and knowledgeable, whilst customers are also friendly. Both children and dogs are welcome. Yesterday's ale selection was Moorhouse's Pendle Witches Brew, Salopian Oracle, Heritage Masterpiece & Oatmeal Stout, Slater's Haka, George Wright Oktoberfest Kapf & Bowness Bay Lakeland Blonde. Ciders & perrys were Heck's Hendre Huffcap Perry, Lilley's Rhubarb Cider & Crazy Goat, Abrahall's Thundering Molly, Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon & Rich's Legbender. Great micropub.

Excellent little micropub where the bloke behind the bar has an interest in the beers and whether the customers like them. Worth getting off the train at Hillside and with more of a proper local pub feel to it than the café/bar style of the Pines round the corner.

I tried visiting this micropub over a year ago. It was closed on my visit and I ended up in the Pines just round the corner. Both bars are about a 7-8 minute walk from Hillside station. I have however been back to the Grasshopper twice since. It's an excellent micropub run by an amiable guy from the south of England. On the second visit, I was served by his daughter. Ales on during my first visit were Salopian Hop Twister, Red Star Havana Moon, Potts Brewing Company Flywheel & Bank Top Pavilion Pale Ale & Flat Cap. Ciders were Thistly Cross Jaggy Thistle & Whisky Cask, Weston's Old Rosie, Heck's Kingston Black, Abrahall's Dry, Sheppy's Orchard Dew & Broadoak Pear and Chilli, Strawberry Cider & Damson Cider. The weekend between my two visits ironically played host to a cider festival. But the owner gave me a tasting of some he had in during my first visit and there were still quite a few left over the following week. Another decent micropub that has sprung up in the area north of Liverpool that I can heartily recommend.
