I'm sure this used to be a coffee shop only. Bar in the middle with a good selection of Monkey ales. However, only one rather weak pale ale was on offer, which was a shame. Still definitely worth a revisit.

Another respectable pub and one not to be missed when visiting Arnold. Six pumps in use on our visit, with five from Blue Monkey and one guest, which was from Dancing Duck. We went for the Blue Monkey Infinity, which was in excellent condition and definitely hit the spot.
This pub has some iconic primate related posters around the walls and the couple that caught my attention, the Monkey Magic poster from the 1980's Japanese TV series and Bill Oddie's Funky Gibbon.

in the space of a year Arnold is turning itself around with a spring of new establishments and refurbishments offering real ale. The Coffee grinder is the newest in blue monkeys Organ grinder pub chain. although branded as a coffee bar/pub i feel this is really only to appease the coffee drinkers as for all intense and purposes this is a real ale pub just like every other organ grinder, so don't be put off. this just has the bonus of selling good coffee as well.

The decore is really nice with half wood, half carpet floors which ads a very nice feel to the place. the is a mock open fire sadly not as grand as the real one in the canning circus organ grinder but still a nice touch. all round this pub is a very pleasant comfy place to be.

There were eight hand pulls all available on the bar with 7 from blue monkey and one from sharps doom bar but on inquiring about doombar was told that it was not selling so was replaced by an eighth blue monkey beer. all blue monkey beers were either £3.00 or £3.10 so quite well priced.
This is such a welcomed feature to arnold and allong with the robin hood and little john are turning the towns pub scene around. I am optimistic about the future and hope this encourages other bad pubs in the area to up their game in order to compete (the old horse and jockey has already done this). I will defiantly be returning in the future.
