A splendid, but aren't they all? micropub on the outskirts of Southport, formerly a bank then a couple of shops this one has two rooms side by side. The counter and tiny servery are located in one back corner of the right hand room, biggish by micro pub standards this room is furnished mainly with tall tables and stools. The five pulls dispense local beers with a few from further afield, the clip collection has examples from Salopian (Hop Twister was on that day and excellent) Nepture, Red Star, Titanic, Melwood, Three Tuns, and Lancaster. There are some interesting lighting options as well. Behind is the access to a unisex toilet and a door leading out to a pleasant drinking yard with cut down barrel furniture. The left hand room has a drinking shelf, more decoration and low tables and chairs alongside a couple of armchairs, more seating is available at the front pavement.

This is a very friendly and very good micropub. A small room, obviously, and it has 5 handpumps, of which 4 were dispensing local breweries and one being Titanic Plum Porter on this visit. A friendly owner(?) was happy to discuss all things real ale. Recommended.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Grasshopper

A recent addition to Hillside along with the Pines around the corner. This one room micro had three ales on handpump and one cider from the Ribble Valley. The beer choice on our visit was Melwood Pale Face, Potts Brewery Sprocket and Salopian Oracle. I went for the Potts Brewery Sprocket, which had bags of flavour and certainly packed a punch at 5.5%. The staff here and fellow drinkers were welcoming and friendly. We took our drinks out front and chatted to the owners of the recently opened sandwich shop.
