Above-average member of the Bishops Arms pub chain: beers on tap rotate more frequently than at other locations, good and varied selection, almost always something fresh and local. Bottle selection is extensive (they even have a small cellar/vintage stuff) - ask the staff! Staff is overall very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about what they sell. Food is "pub fare plus", nothing super exciting but always reliable. Very spacious bar, good for a bigger group of people.
Spacious pub with a fair selection of beer, mostly mainstream, but some craft beer available. Prices are on the high side and the service is friendly but not very knowledgeable when it comes to the craft beer they serve.
When I visit a Bishops Arms pub, I know what to expect, and I like it. Craft beers on tap, both Swedish and foreign and some interesting bottles as well. Maybe I was lucky with the girls working in the bar this evening, I have nothing to complain about considering service and knowledge. Well, I didn’t challenge them with a beer quiz... Lot’s of Norwegian guests. (Visited July 23rd 2014)
Visited in 2014. Looks like most Bishops Arms pubs at first glance but this place is allot bigger then the other pubs I’ve been to. Average Bishops pub in terms of selection. Decent food but very slow service.
Visited a warm Saturday afternoon, so quite crowded on the nice patio overlooking the canal. Empty inside - has the same bolt-on interior as other BA. Nice selection on tap as well as bottles. Staff did not impress as far as knowledge about the beers goes. Otherwise a nice place when in Karlstad.
Visited on December 11, 2010. Sat down in some nice comfy armchairs and had a fresh nice beer from Jämtlands. Was there fairly early on this Saturday, so not too crowded. Did not eat this time around. Nice staff. Centrally located and nice environment.
