Imagine there were kits for building a pub – a bit like those model aeroplane kits surely every schoolboy knows. Then imagine that you couldn’t decide which model to choose, so you bought the whole set but when you got home you still couldn’t decide which to build first so you took a few parts from each box and put your pub together. Hey presto! You might then have ended up with something a bit like the Bishops Arms. Oh, but you took the taps from all the boxes and included them in your shiny new pub so that there were 20 or more rather than the usual 3 or 4. The Bishops Arms is a Swedish chain that’s been going for 20 years. The Copenhagen branch, the first outside Sweden, opened in March this year. It promotes itself as a British-style pub and to emphasise this point it has a coat of arms just like the one on the front of my passport under the bar. When we visited it had many British beers on tap, including Punk IPA from BrewDog (one of my favourite house beers), as well as a more local selection – Norrebro Bombay Pale Ale, Mikkeller Snapphane and Mikkeller Exotic Punch, to name but three. There were also Walkers crisps and an impressive range of single malt whiskies. It’s a large, long and narrow place and, as I indicated above, it has no unifying theme. There are mock Tudor beams, Indian restaurant flock wallpaper (but turquoise rather than red), wooden panelling, wallpaper from a 1930s bedroom, brass plates, horse brasses under the bar and atop the columns supporting it, pictures of sailing ships, the sort of multicoloured carpet usually found only in British pubs, a slate floor not unlike that in our kitchen at home, wall lights and Tiffany-style lamps over the booths. A real mishmash of styles! You might find any of these in a pub in England, but not all in one place. Having said that, it was comfortable enough but deserted on a weekday lunchtime, apart from a couple of other people who tucked themselves into a booth at the far end of the room. I felt rather sorry for the barmaid, who was friendly but woefully underemployed. (Visited 24 May 2011).

Very much like other Bishop’s Arms pubs (in Sweden). Good location. Nice selection on taps. OK service. Extremely expensive.

The brand new Bishop Arms in Copenhagen gave a rather good first impression after a visit on a Sunday afternoon in late May. Clean and tidy, inviting interior, especially the library section. Relaxing atmosphere. Tasty food, we had the brunch plate. Attentive barmaids that made us feel comfortable here. Seven hand-pumps, mostly Fullers, 20 on keg and two fridges filled with interesting bottled beers – we had some tasty big bottles from Port Brewing. Central location (Visited with Danish friends 29.05.2011).

Visited several times. Traditionel Bishop Arms concept, regarding deco and beerselection. Easy to reach in the city center. Good selection on the taps, with a bottle selection as well. Traditionel pub food of good quality. From time to time they have quiz nights as well. Worth visiting if in that area.

Large and new place in Copenhagen. 30 taps - 4-6 of them Cask. Good bottle selection of Swedish , Belgium classics and British beers mainly. No rarities to be found and pretty boring draft lineup. A bit more expensive than your average Copenhagen beer bar! Friendly service.

A huge place mostly with stone floor, but in the library there is carpets. A huge selection of different seating areas; the bar, open table areas, booths, and the library with soft leather chairs. Kept very much in an English pub style, but missing some patina. 30 taps and a good selection of bottles, but not that much new stuff coming thru. OK priced and OK tasting pub grub. Beers are a bit pricey even for Copenhagen.

A blueprint of the Swedish Bishops Arms, with it’s long bar, differnt seating areas, and a "library" department with comfy chairs. Good Swedish beer selection, also some good Danish ones. Visited during Copenhagen Beer Festival 2011, when this place was newly opened, service was excellent, as well as knowledge of the beer selection in the fridge. There was a low frequency noise, which seems to originate from the HVAC system, this was really annoying when first noticed.

A really nice place, I have never been to a BA in Sweden so I can’t comment on that. It is however somewhat different. It has a great selection of beers and very good food. The prices are normal for the city. Service was spot on and very friendly staff.

This chain is more or less the Weatherspoon’s of Sweden, here in a Danish incarnation. Large number of taps, but fairly standard stuff, the bottles in the fridge are more interesting.
