A standard Bishops Arms with a nice outdoor section in the summer. Nice to find two Coronado-beers on tap during my visit. Apart from that the sortiment is rather normal for a BA. Had a burger who was really good. Expensive, even by swedish standards.

Köket stänger 22 sedan är det chilinötter som gäller. En Westy12 i baren man gärna vill visa upp. Ganska hög prisnivå. Någon enstaka de molen. Mikkeller och brewdog i stora mängder men inga tunga rariteter. Kunnig personal, i alla fall den här killen. En annan vet inte vad ipa är.
10-15 tap. Det mesta känns standard. Enstaka kul grejer. Dock bara en ipa på tap vilket var lite förvånande då den stilen är så trendig just nu. Vilket också innebär att den var slut.
Härlig stämning efter nån lettisk lager på fastande mage.
Sedvanlig bishop meny. Lite varianter av husmanskost.
Troligen bästa ölstället i Jönköping. Bra ambitioner. I sin iver att visa upp vilken fantastisk öl man besitter frontar man finöl i direkt solljus på uteserveringen. Smärtar förstås lite att se. Överlag helt ok ställe och troligen stans bästa

The Bishops Arms is part of the impressive Elite Stora Hotellet in the very centre of town and has entrances from the hotel foyer and from the street. It’s a typical Bishops Arms pub with multiple rooms, including a few semi-private nooks and crannies, and a hotchpotch of “English” features – a library area, Lincrusta-type wallpaper between the beams on the ceiling, a very shiny slate floor, copper and brass kettles, bugles, bridleware and so on. As one of my colleagues remarked, it seems more English than anywhere in England! The prices, however, are not like those to be found in England - they are eye-wateringly Swedish and more expensive than anywhere I went to in Stockholm a few days later.
There are eight hand pumps, two banks of around 16 keg taps and a fridge full of interesting looking bottles. As noted in the previous reviews, it’s probably the best place for beer in Jönköping which otherwise doesn’t offer a lot to the beer traveller. The food was standard pub fare, although I eschewed the usual burger / steak / fish and chips and chose instead Janssons frestelse (Jansson’s temptation) with crispbread and cheese from the north of Sweden. It was rather good, if a little salty.

Decent place for beer. 4 guest taps which all of served some variety of IPA, or was sold out. Decent bottle selection, staff was pretty knowledgable. Food service was bad, one of us had to wait 45 min for food, 20 min more than the rest of us (got it for free thou).

Best place for beer in Jönköping.
Need to update their beer menus a bit more frequent. A beer sold out on my visit in November was still marked as available in December
