Comfortable place to visit right in the center of Bergen. Access to some of the best Norwegian bottled beers from Nøgne Ø, Atna and Haandbryggeriet (I had bottles of Norwegian Wood and Dark Force). Average range of bottles from other countries and good range of Whisky to choose from. Friendly barman who always asks if you want your beer chilled or temperated. Attracts a wide mix of people (in good company on 14.11.2007).
I got an English pub feeling here. Dark, wooden interior which gives a sense of quality. I only had one beer, "Ægir Kontoret" (My main reason to visit) Not the best from Ægir, but another tick! Service minded staff. (Visited September 14th 2013)
English type bar/library with a decent selection of Norwegian micros, 3 on tap at my visit. Food available from next door restaurant, very good burger. Good selection of bottled beers as well, and service minded staff.
Library style bar with dark woods, a strong list of single malts, lots of Nøgne Ø beers and almost as many from Haandbryggeriet. Food in the Dickens restaurant than makes up the rest of the building. Spoiled only by having two large TV screens imposing two guys’ football preferences on fifteen disinterested others. I agree with the comments about knowledgeable staff. New guy on his first day could say something sensible about most of the micros. Good selection for Norway.
A typical "British" pub serving some non-fancy food and a nice selection of beers. If you don’t like sports on the screens, it’s best to come early. There’s nothing special about this place, but it’s friendly and quite cozy so I don’t mind returning here when in Bergen. Don’t find many new ratings here, but the foreign visitor might find a few interesting Norwegian ones.

NIce, quiet bar in old-fashioned, dark style with a library look. Red leather sofas and bar stools. The bar has recently decided to offer a good beer and whiskey selection to stand out from the competition. The result is a decent beer selection with three Nøgne Ø, good UK, Belgian, and German selection. The barman is friendly, talkative, and interested in beer. One of the best places in Bergen to have a beer.
It’s possible to persuade the barman to feed you in the bar, if you claim to love beer.
A centrally located bar in English Chesterfield style with a good bootle selection of world beers and Nøgne Ø, Ægir and Beer Here on tap when I was here today. After a few suggestions of his own, the bar keeper took an interest in the beer-food match of the Lervig Winter Ale that I ordered to match an entercote that I ate next door. Worked splendidly, by the way. Kontoret has an agreement with a restaurant (Nye Dickens) next door, and you can get your food in the restaurant, and get beer from Kontoret and eat where you like.

Charming, quite and cozy small bar central located in Bergen, visited a calm Tuesday afternoon in June. Reminds me a bit of a British gentlemen club (not thinking of a go-go bar!). 52 bottles and 3 taps is a great selection compared with most other Norwegian bars. The friendly waitress had a surprisingly good knowledge of what see served. Could not ask for much more.
