A homely old-English style boozer in Jarntorget, the home of some of the best Goteborg bars. A good selection of Swedish beers including a few from the local brewer Ocean plus others from around Europe and the standard Fullers cask ales. Friendly service.. I sometimes feel that some Swedish pubs go a little over the top in their race to be the most British, but it’s a little funny more than anything. I enjoyed my visits here and will of course return. Wi-Fi was pretty solid.

Visited november 2013, a late friday night. The place was almost packed but we managed to get seats at last. Pretty much standard BA, decent selection, knowing staff, decent service and the familiar BA atmosphere.

A regular Bishops Arms with all that means but this one is supported by a cunning and friendly staff, usually interesting guest taps, a nice bottle selection with some rarities and a very solid house beer from Oceanbryggeriet.

Updated after my latest visit on August 31, 2013.
Age limit is 23 years, ID might be required if asked for.
Patio outside in summer season only.
Centrally located on "Järntorget" square, easy to get to by tram or bus. Perhaps not so good to drive to and find parking. Close to many other great beer places, so can easily be part of a Göteborg pub crawl.
This evening 27 taps with different beers available as of the bartender. Some taps have the same beers on though, I’d say max 20 different beers on tap at a given time. Many taps stay the same over the year, but 4-6 change fairly often, updated usually on their Facebook page which the guest taps are.
Apparently about 200 bottles available, not all of them visible in the fridges, many are in the cellar.
No problem getting a "galopp" serving, i.e. a 17-20 cl serving in a wine glass, if you want to sample smaller servings of your beer.
The youngest of the three BA bars in Göteborg. It also feels like the one with the most light, perhaps because this is not located in a cellar? The best of the BA pubs in Göteborg and as for the ones I’ve visited the best in Sweden.
I go here fairly often and have been since they opened.
Staff seems to more or less change quite often, though some regular (good) ones remain. Rather big outdoor seating in summer, a bit smallish and narrow inside. If you’re lucky you’ll get to see the beer cellar, located under the entrance!
Food has been very bad once, which led me to not eat here for many months. Have had better luck since.
Have the "Ocean (Järntorgets) Arbetarporter" brewed specially for them, and afaik always available on tap.
A place I tend to go back to again and again.
Once a year, usually in October, has the "porter week" Sunday through Thursday, where many taps are sporting black beers; mainly porters and stouts, but also black lager and black IPA etc.
Like all BA are fairly expensive, but they did look over their bottled prices earlier this year and many became reasonably priced instead of silly as before.

Great outdoor serving area on this central square. The interior is cozy as well. They have many taps but most of them are filled with common or uninteresting beers. The bottle menu looked really good, but it was very out of date. The bottle selection was still good, but I asked for six different beers from the menu and they didn’t have any of them. Some of their taps are disguised as casks hand pumps, so when I asked the waitor whether it was cask or regular tap he didn’t even know what cask beer was !?! There are better places in Göteborg to spent your money.

One of the best Bishops Arms-pubs in Sweden. Always lots of good porters, both on tap and bottle and a huge patio.

The best Bishop Arms in town. The peronal maybe not have the highest knowledge. A fairly good selection on both bottle and tap. Prices are on the higher side. Decent food.

I think this is the best Bishops Arms in Goteborg. Very good selection of beers mostly on bottles but you can find some interesting taps too. Friendly and very helpful staff.

Nice location at Järntorget.

Cosy and friendly pub in a good location. The beer range is good and the interior is similar to many of the other Bishops Arms pubs. Worth visiting.
