We have been in the past and found it very good. Liked the candleabra on the tables, made it more intermate. The staff were very friendy and helpful with our requirements.
But found it more expensive than it used to be!
Lovely decor and friendly staff. Vegan options. Food was nice and the waitress was always happy to help.
Thoroughly enjoyable Mother’s Day lunch. Excellent service, nice choices on the menu although prices have gone up since the refurb.
Great refurb and something for everyone - spacious family dining or cosy coffee catch-up.
We ate on a Sunday evening, the menu choices are very confusing, menus are swapped when roast dinners have sold out. Eating in the evening during the week only the dinner menu is available, not the wider choices offered on the breakfast/brunch/mains menu.
One of the Duck dishes had to be sent back as so tough. No problem with replacing it. The staff are delightful.
I would not eat here again in the evening as the food choices are limited , I might try a lunch.
Great service and amazing food every time. Love it here and Sunday Roast to die for. Puddings a little on the pricey side except the apple turnover
A lovely Sunday lunch. The wine is always good quality too. Food is just leaning on the expensive side for a pub but always good. Renovations at the Grasshopper have greatly improved the ambience of the place.
We went for my husbands birthday- food excellent, service very good.
We will be going back.
Called at the last minute for a table and was happy to get a table as it was Saturday night . Was surprised to find so many empty tables. Food was OK steak a bit grizzly in parts but cooked to perfection . One of the party had gammon which was very disappointing as it was so thin basically it could have been mistaken for a slice of bacon. We have eaten here before and the food has always been pretty good so this was a let down
Would I come here again for food , probably not . Would I call for drinks, definitely as it's a lovely pub with a nice ambience.
Took my mum to celebrate her 89th birthday. We were able to sit outside as weather so nice but service just as good!!
Very nice place to eat. Would recommend to anyone.
Please do not go to the Grasshopper for a meal the Food and Drinks are overpriced and inedible and the waiting time is over 1 hour;
At first the Grasshopper seemed to have some class about it we were led to our seats and the waitress took our orders. We bought drinks at the bar and waited and waited for our meal; eventually over 1 hour later our meal arrived.
I had Rump Steak and my wife had ham egg and chips; after a while we found out that it was a mistake by going to the Grasshopper; the food was abysmal, my Steak was inedible not just unfit to eat but impossible to eat it was like shoe leather. I spoke to the waitress about it and and she was away for 10 minutes came back and offered me a free Dessert I refused this. My Wife's dinner was simple enough she had Ham Egg and Chips but She also struggled to eat this dried up ham and stale chips, mine were the same.
The service and food were fine. The main problem is that nearly every time I have been there is quite a lot of items on the menu which are unavailable . If this was addressed I would increase the rating
Was ok, I had been previously and really highly rated it, this time the chips were overdone so you couldn’t get them on your fork and the ribs was a little fatty. but it is still nice venue and has good amount of parking and the staff are friendly.
my husband and I had a meal with our son and my husband's elderly mum, we were made welcome and the waitress was was excellent. The choice of food was really good, cooked and presented well. It was also helpful to have small servings as my mum-in-law doesn't have a big appetite. A very enjoyable evening.
Friendly staff, excellent food and atmosphere, will definitely return.
Love the venue, felt choice of menu not so good, my steak was not nice at all. Expected food to be of better quality and presented better than it was. Took a friend over from America with us he had ribs which were also disappointing. Service could have been little better no care with anything.
Family lunch with youngest son. Very good service, instant asking if we wanted a drink after sitting at table, not like previous experience at another place, which was 20 minute wait.
The food was very good, and not pricey for what we have. Will come again.
The staff were seemingly inexperienced. Not the best visit we have had
The service was slow between courses. The servers seemed more interested in chatting then serving. The starter I had was very small for the price it was compared to other places I have had the same starter. Which is a shame as we had our wedding reception here 15 years ago and it was brilliant then.
This was an enjoyable evening and there were no problems. We used to eat at The Grasshopper on a regular basis but in recent months have had some negative feelings after eating there so have started to eat at other local establishments. Too often the waiting staff that greet you and take your order for the first part of the meal suddenly disappear and other staff start to serve you which breaks any continuity. Upon occasions this second staff member has omitted to bring food that had been ordered from the first wave of staff, and on one occasion we were lied to when our food order was cocked up. There needs to be an improvement in waiting staff giving customers the feeling that they are valued, this does not always happen. The often very empty restaurant reflects how far theGrasshopper has in recent times, which is a shame.
Enjoyed our Sunday lunch treat. As usual good food and polite staff. Only downside was my drink. Asked for Bacardi and a bottle of coke because I like to add my own amount of coke but the person serving the drink decided to put 75% of the bottle into the glass. Not really what I asked for but hey-ho I had to have another Bacardi as well! Lol
My friend and I had a lovely evening good food good service and nice atmosphere
Will be coming again
Staff really miserable and some abrupt. . Food had a lot of vinegar in and very average
Friendly caring staff. Nice environment. Great food. AA+++
We always come to the Grasshopper when we want good food in a quiet restaurant where the staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful. The tables are well spaced so that we don't feel crowded and have privacy in conversation. We recommend the Grasshopper to friends and family.
It was a Sunday evening and they had run out of a lot of items even really simple things. The service was good, but it took a good 45 minutes to an hour between starter and main course.
I have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions and the food and service are always of a good standard. Staff are polite and helpful and the menu choice is good value for money.
Seemed quiet in restaurant. Staff attentive. Beer good. Food good for price - not a gastro experience but we didnt expect it to be.
Needs a way of partitioning the huge room when out of season slack nights. Would be more convivial. Customers were scattered around the room in little lonely oases
Such a lovely find. The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. They even bought some children's books over for my little boy in addition to the activity sheet the provide. We were a big party and we all loved the food and service. Would highly recommend it :-)
Great evening yet again. Nice food.
Family threesome for lunch. Rather disappointed that on a Friday lunch time three of the most common and popular meal choices had run out of provision. No ham egg and chips available for a Friday lunch or evening? Come on.
Food is always good quality and staff are always polite and friendly, very relaxed atmosphere.
when we arrived we were not told the specials ( nothing written on specials board) or that there was a roast on offer and as it was a sunday and the people that came in after us were given the choice without asking. The service was slow as the servers were chatting with each other.
Lovely seating and food. Great service and surroundings. Good space between tables.
Great dinner experience. Food nice and staff friendly.
Absolutely bloody brilliant 🍾🍾🍾🍔🍔🍔🍕🍕🍕🎂🎂🎂🍿🍝🍝🍝🍝
Very pleasant evening and meal for a catch up with a friend. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Our table was too close to another one and it was difficult to hold a conversation especially as they were a young couple and v loud.
Very good service,atmosphere. We have visited before& will visit again
Good food, good place & nice staff. Will be visiting again soon. Our waitress was really good and made us feel welcome
