This place is pretty typical of other Bishops Arms locations I’ve been, with a pretty decent tap selection. It was open on a Sunday, but closed pretty early, so it’s hard to comment on atmosphere. But worth trying just for the tap list.

Went to the Bishop to have a good taste of their house ale, Arbetarporter, which I really enjoyed drinking in the library section of the pub. It’s a street corner pub, British-like, located in the outskirts of the beautiful Haga area. There’s a nice and quite large patio outside, and I really wonder why it’s not open during the best time of sunshine in early August. Polite service (visited, 03.08.2010).

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.

I liked this pub, visited an early afternoon March 27 th. I wanted to try many new beer and ordered several 25 cl samples, mostly Swedish micro. Friendly and helpful staff and nice pub-interior. Did not eat

Visited on a busy friday afternoon, the place was crowded, managed to get a seat after 5 min. This place looked a bit smaller than the other Bishops Arms that I have visited. The beers on tap seems to be taken from the Carlsberg selection, not a lot exciting, except those 5 beers from Swedish micros, announced on a small black board by the bar. Excellent food, and fast service.

Very british and typical Bishop Arms interior. A nice selection of beer. Both on tap and bottles. Nice location at Järntorget.

The best Bishops Arms in Göteborg. A nice place with good beers, though it gets rather crowded early evenings on friday and saturday.

Nice big cosey pub in Bishop Arms style. Very friendly service. Huge selection. 20 taps, and one special strong porter made especially for this place.

sebletitje  (308) Enghien, Belgium | June 28, 2009
Visited with Gnoff. Nice atmosphere that feels very British with an old Victorian style, many great beers on tap (many local ones) and friendly service. They have a lot of rarities that don’t go to the US market or even outside of Sweden. It’s Sweden, and yes, once again beers are damn expensive. You might end up spending a good 89SEK for a tasteless lager.

Mixed clientelle, English furbishing out of a box. Mostly macros on tap, but some good stuff among them like Jever Pils. A few micros on tap, including Arbetarporter. Quite a few Scandinavian micros in botttles.
