Arrghh! After visiting a Scottish, an English, an Irish, yet another English pub and finally ending up at another Irish styled pub, I began to feel unsure about if I really was in Sweden or somewhere in The British Isles? Uppsala needs a Swedish beer bar! But, enough complaining. This has nothing to do with O’Connors, which is really a great place to enjoy craft beers. I will not give it top score in ambiance, but beer selection is great! 15 guest taps and more than 600 bottles, which is awesome. You can purchase a beer teaser (5x18 cl) for 189 kronor. Service minded and knowledgeable staff. (Visited June 25th 2014)
A pretty standard Irish pub atmosphere hides a truly great selection of beers, though be warned some of the rarities on the menu may well be sold out. The staff was friendly & helpful but busy as he seemed to be the only guy working. Well informed & when I went they had 3 Flying Dog beers which was pretty cool. Prices seemed fairly average for me for Sweden(most taps 33cl around 89SEK) though the bottle list may have been cheaper than in Stockholm & if you know what you’re looking at can hide some real gems. The fries were crisp & tasty which bodes well for the rest of the food. If you’re in Uppsala check it out.
Surprisingly decent and diverse range of beers (primarily in bottled form) and friendly service. I’ve heard that it’s the best place in Uppsala and whilst I’m yet to visit any other bars in Uppsala, this place will take some beating.
Very nice pub, centrally located in Uppsala. It’s a long bar on the first floor, with more seating in separate rooms. Sometimes there’s live music as well (meaning there may be an entrance fee). Service was swift, friendly and quite knowledgeable. Food is the usual pub grub and quite good. The Irish sounding name makes you suspect the beer selection consists of Guinness, Kilkenny, a crappy mass produced lager and nothing else. But here comes a nice surprise. The selection of draught beers is quite good, with a very interesting range of guest beers (for example Croocked Moon Hurricane IPA and Mikkeller Black Hole Tequila Barrel on my visit). Quite impressive and well mixed selection of bottled beers as well. With only 40 minutes on the train from Stockholm it’s close enough for a visit. A very welcome beer place in a town infamous for it’s lack of watering holes for non students.
Visited for the first time on a Saturday evening in July 2012.
I liked this place. The ambiance was your typical "British" kind of pub with a long bar and the dark interior.
The selection was good but I was told that it was a bit limited compared to the peak season. July is not the peak season for a Pub in Uppsala I guess.
The location was very good, right in the center of Uppsala, not far from the Train Station. (about 5 minutes walk)
Friendly service and atmosphere. I liked the beer club with a separate bar for beer neirds and regulars with some very interesting bottles. I got the chance to finally try the Baronen 2008, really glad for that.
I will come back, its only 40 minutes with train from Stockholm to Uppsala.
This pub has gone from being decent to being one of the best pubs in Sweden. Definitely worth it to go back there again if you haven’t been there for a while. They have a wide selection of tap beer and an even wider selection of bottled beer. All at very affordable prices. They also have some kind of beer club for regulars and people that are very interested in beer. They get access to a small pub with even more exclusive stuff. Fantastic place, I can’t wait to go back.
Not the coziest of pubs, but nice enough. The selection of bottles is huge, altough not that interesting. Mostly standard beers from the regular importers. The tap selection is however quite impressive.

One of my favorite spots in this region of Sweden. Good selection of bottles and an impressive tap selection. A bit pricey but not terribly expensive either. Well worth a visit or three
