About the Pub

Previously the Red Lion, this pub was bought and refurbished by Blue Monkey Brewery, and is its brewery tap, hence the name. The single-roomed pub boasts a wood-burning fire. Up a couple of steps there are some sofas and armchairs to relax in. Outside, to the rear and up a few steps, you will find a lovely city centre oasis of calm on the roof terrace, leading to a small first-floor function room. Two real ciders and a perry are always available. No meals, but bar snacks such as pork pies are sold.

Historic Interest

Formerly the Red Lion, which in 1879 was a beer house under publican Henry Hutchinson (Wright). The Organ Grinder is located in Nottingham City Council's Gamble Street / Alfreton Road Conservation Area. As at November 2017, the Freehold for the Organ Grinder (NT359350) was held by Bleasby Inns Limited [Reg. No. 7107761]. [Nottingham City Council; Radford & Park Ward / Nottingham South Parliamentary Constituency]
