The Organ Grinder - Loughborough


The Organ Grinder is an award-winning Blue Monkey pub, serving award-winning real ales. 


Filled with charm, the 18th Century coach house boasts many of its traditional features – the Ostler’s House with its original cast iron cooking range, the Stables with their original wooden feeding troughs, and an open fire that warms the entire pub with its inviting glow. 

The bar has a strong focus on real ale – primarily serving Blue Monkey Brewery’s core range of beers, as well as a revolving line-up of quality guest ales from other fantastic breweries. With 9 hand-pulls, any ale lover is spoilt for choice.  

A wide assortment of other products is available, including Blue Monkey hand-crafted gin, an array of specialist beverages from local craft ales to Belgian beers, and real ciders and perries are always available. 

A wonderful selection of Pork Pies and other bar snacks are served daily. The option to bring local delicacies into the pub to be enjoyed with a pint of your favourite ale is also available. 

Dogs are welcome, events such as live music and pub quizzes take place regularly, board games are readily available, there is an expansive beer garden to the rear, charging stations are dotted around the pub, there are many quaint little rooms to tuck yourself into – the list goes on, but why not come and experience the delights for yourself? 

The Organ Grinder received the award for Pub of the Year from Loughborough and North Leicestershire CAMRA in 2013, 2019, 2023 and 2024. It was also awarded Gold in their Traditional Pub of the Year category in 2023 and 2024.

Accessibility - There is a small step through the main door, a step up into the downstairs toilets and a large gutter outside the rear gate. They have wheelchair uses who manoeuvre around the pub without any hassle, but there are small obstacles. They do have a number of smaller rooms away from the main bar which make for quiet spaces that are frequented by services users from a local day service with a range of disabilities and learning difficulties.
