Nisse666 (166) Göteborg, Sweden | September 30, 2009| Updated October 27, 2014
Not the best BS in Gbg. Haven’t been in their outdoor serving area, yet. Perhaps I’ll reconsider my rating...
3 years later: By far the best BA in town, also hosting the porter week, with excellent porters ;)
The best bishop’s arms in gothenburg. A very nice interior aged back a couple of centuries. Very professional bar men. Since it’s not placed in the exact touristic centre of town it tends not to be very crowded.
Visited twice. Good selection for Sweden, including 2-3 British cask ales. Some good stuff from Swedish micro breweries too.Their specially brewed Järntorgets Arbetarporter (from Oceanbryggeriet) is worth the journey alone! Friendly staff, good outdoor seating area. The hamburgers were tasty, but what’s up with all this Thousand Islands dressing that so many Scandinavian burger joints insist on putting on their burgers?
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.
Decent selection of swedish micros and english ales on tap (not cask). Some American bottled beers. The usually have some Nögne and Mikkeller beer on bottle. Good whisky selection. Prices are high. You can sit outside in the summertime.
Seemed to end up as a favorite pub on my last stay in Gothenburg. At least the one I returned to most frequently. That might have to do with the central location and the fine outdoor seating. Very friendly staff, even got a tour of their cellar. Nice toilet conditions, even though it might be few of them on a crowded night. Good selection on beers on both tap and bottle, and the prices aren’t bad. At least not for a Norwegian. Nice food too, in a pub-ish way.
Currently the latest of the Bishop Arms in Gothenburg. They have a quite popular quiz on Mondays, hosted by an English speaking quiz master. The beer selection is not bad at all but it tends to be a bit expensive. The food is standard pub fare, such as hamburgers. Years ago this place was known as Gillestugan.
The third BA to establish in Göteborg, and in contrast to the others they have a large outside area where you can sit in the summer. A bit static draugt selection, some interesting bottles but unforunately at very unreasonable prices. Food is Ok but no more.
