Nice staff with good service. However, the selection on tap and bottles are very dull and boring.

Ambiance - English style pub with plenty of regulars. Can get quite full since it’s a small place but overall quite cozy.
Service - Generally excellent service-minded staff.
Selection - Quite good with plenty of locals. Has their own brewery now in Lycke so expect to find their beers here.
Food - Solid pub grub.
Value - Standard by Gothenburg standards. About $5-$6 for a 200 ml glass.
Additional comments - Not your first place to visit in Gothenburg but a very solid pub located close to some of the tops venues of the city.

First visit to this place, as they open early and were in the neighbourhood I did my one day pubcrawl in. This was almost like stepping into home, lots of friendly people greeting you (even the customers) and very nice staff. In a way very typical English style pub, with a nice selection of Swedish micros, though some beers mentioned on the chalkboards and other beer lists were outdated. Great service even in the middle of lunch hours, which turned from me going to the counter to order to the staff asking what I fancy next. Ploughmans was ace, first time I get proper Ploughmans outside England. Brilliantly humorous kitchen staff too.

English style pub, pretty small and narrow. Some swedish micros on tap.

Mock English pub just across from Bar Kino, visited here twice on my G’borg weekend around 6/6.30 pm on Friday 21/03/14 and again late afternoon on Sunday 23/03/14. Fairly dark wood pannelled kind of affair, gimick red phone box at the entrance. Place was fairly heaving on the Friday evening, less so but still doing a fair amount of trade on the Sunday. Beer selection didn’t really impress too much, sure I picked up a few ticks but one or two Ocean beers, a house lager from Stigbergets and one or two other commonish offerings you can get elsewhere. Service fine despite the Friday crowds, in fact I think it was slower on the Sunday. Overall - mock English japes with a few random ticks, not an essential port of call!

English styled pub. Some micros available, some macros. Not a huge beer selection, not often Innis & Gun stands out as the more interesting choices. Good ambiance and central location is what makes it worth a visit, the beer list alone wont cut it.

Fairly small bar, reached by an English phone booth type of entrance. Rather narrow and tight, so not too many people can occupy it at the same time. Think around 40 max. Have a few guest taps that usually carry some Swedish craft beers. At the moment serves two house beers brewed by Dugges that are a must try! Food can be plentyful and not that expensive, I tend to go for some meat and potatoes, which they cook very well. Service lately have been ecellent. Centrally located, easy to access by bus and tram. Walking distance from Järntorget.

A small, but cosy pub with a house beer from Dugges usually available. The beer range isn’t the biggest, but it’s certainly worth popping in for a pint or two.

Small English style pub run by Swedish staff. Limited beer selection with two special beers only available at that location. The rest is mix of Swedish and British beers ESB, etc Decor has plenty of old memorabilia clustered all over the pub. Food menu looked typically British, tried the oxfile in Gorgonzola sauce, vegetables were undercooked, nice side. Good friendly service on each visit.
