“This is THE place in Gävle for craft beer tourists. A popular place with varied clientele. Many were enjoying a meal at the spacious and nice patio in front. Pleasing pop and rock music played. Mostly Swedish bands and artists early in the evening, more international selection later. First I found a table inside by the bar. Tap and bottled menu at Untappd but also in a beer menu at the table. A flight, 3 x 15 cl, is a nice offer. There are now 21 taps and about 160 bottles and cans. "My" barman was a friendly young man with passion for craft beer. He seems to know his customers and suggested to make a bar tab for me. Off course! Later my wife also arrived and we found a table outside on the partly covered patio. She also liked this place and appreciate a well crafted beer, as long it's not dark or too strong. I enjoyed a big bottle "Uinta Crooked Line Labyrinth Black Ale" alone. Also a new US state for me, Melvin Brewing from Wyoming. A new Swedish brewery on tap, Illbatting Brewing, I had to add at RateBeer. Again, a great pub and restaurant! (Visited July 21st 2018 with my wife)“

“Always new ticks to find in Bishops Arms pubs. Poor selection of Swedish craft beers on tap, but some bottles in the fridge. Lots of beers from US and UK most of us have seen before. I spotted a new brewery for me on tap, Yards Brewing Company. Boring beer, Philadelphia Pale Ale. Friendly service but few visitors this nice, early Saturday evening. Not a place to stay for a lone drinker. (Visited July 21st 2018)“

“I came here about seven minutes before closing time a Saturday. Found local bottles, payed and returned to my car in not more than 10 minutes. Great! I made it after driving as hell from Birsta outside Sundsvall. I was really eager to get bottles from local breweries in and around Gävle. I purchased all bottles from Hopsie Daisy, a lot from Jädraås and some from Helsinge. (Visited July 21st 2018)“

“It used to be really nice place a couple of years ago. Today the service is quite poor, new staff each and every day, a pretty dull selection of beers with lots of empty taps.“

“Bar and restaurant. The selection of beers are by far the best in Gävle and quite good for a town of this size. Friendly staff and some of them have really good beer knowledge.“

“Located in central Gävle, CSS is a texas barn yard saloon. Staff is dressed up as cowboys/cowgirls. Beer selection is mainly american and fairly bland. Staff did’nt know much about beer and refused to serve bottles with a glass, "we drink it texas style here".“

“Visitedlate afternoon. When we entered the place the first bar fight was minutes away. Beer selection is pretty bad but the prices are good. The atmosphere tells a story of distant glory days. Should be experienced.“

“Visited mid late evening during easter 2016. Calm and relaxed atmosphere but boring beer selection. Bonus points for the room in the basement where bands play occationally“

“Central location in Gävle, visited on a friday evening. Decent tap selection and ok bottles in the fridge. Fairly pricy and the staff seemed tired and uninterested. Not the best BA in Sweden“

“Resturant and bar with a large patio, slightly smaller selection than Bishops Arms but better quality. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Super pleasant place!“

“Visited last year on my way from Bishops to the hotel. You get what you can expect from Harry’s. Lots of sports on TV, quite boring beer selection.“

“What you’d expect from a Systembolaget in a town of this size, but the difference being that they stock most of the beers from Jädraås Bryggeri.“

“A nice pub in terms of its cosiness but I was disappointed with the prices and the fact that many of the taps were not being used when I visited.“

“Visited lateish evening of Saturday May 30, 2015. Got there around 21:30 or 22:00 I’d say.
Less people than I’d expect for a BA in this size of city a Sat evening after payday.
Had just had a tap takeover from Jädraöl, so unusually many beers on tap from that brewery. Bottled selection fair. Service OK. Expensive even for a BA! Smallish beer at 71 SEK. I’d rather cross the street to Södra if in town again.“

“Best selection in town. The place to go in Gävle if you want to try any Swedish micros on tap (only guest taps though), and a nice selection of bottled beers. The staff is friendly (although the knowledge really depends on who’s working) and the food is pretty good. If you’re in town and want to go out for a good beer and be able to talk to your company, I’d say this is the place to go.“

“This is an appalling place. The staff is rude and knows absolutely nothing about beer, drinks or service. The place is crammed with lager louts and people in various stages of drunken stupor. The patio is next to a road and not far from the railway. I planned to eat something, but when I realised the state of place, I chucked my flat beer and left.“

“One of the better pubs in the Bishops Arms chain. Friendly and reasonably skilled staff, mixed clientèle without lager louts. Why not have a pint in the library? A small patio available during summer, sadly on the street side...“
