Great outdoor serving area on this central square. The interior is cozy as well. They have many taps but most of them are filled with common or uninteresting beers. The bottle menu looked really good, but it was very out of date. The bottle selection was still good, but I asked for six different beers from the menu and they didn’t have any of them. Some of their taps are disguised as casks hand pumps, so when I asked the waitor whether it was cask or regular tap he didn’t even know what cask beer was !?! There are better places in Göteborg to spent your money.
Nice big cosey pub in Bishop Arms style. Very friendly service. Huge selection. 20 taps, and one special strong porter made especially for this place.

Archtypical English pub atmosphere, and some tables and chairs outside. Tap selection was good, lots of swedish, a few cask (including NC Red Seal Pale Ale). A very good bottle list too, including some long lost gems - Ølfabrikken Islay Cask Stout, Winter Porter, Nøgne Ø Imperial Stout Highland Edition etc. Prices are pretty expensive as with all swedish places, but pretty much in the same area as other Swedish beer places. I had two different vintage of Närke Stormaktsporter - 2005 and 2008 (they also had 2006), and they were priced at 205 and 195 SEK. The Kaggen Stormaktsporter was on the menu, but they were out of it none the less. The Kaggen was 125 SEK cheaper than it is at The Rover.

A good spacious bar, and almost certainly the top Bishops Arms in Goteberg. Very interesting bottle selection including numerous vintages of Stormaktporter as well as some top beers from around the world. Well worth a visit.
This place is pretty typical of other Bishops Arms locations I’ve been, with a pretty decent tap selection. It was open on a Sunday, but closed pretty early, so it’s hard to comment on atmosphere. But worth trying just for the tap list.
The Bishop’s Arms pub at Järntorget in Göteborg have the best beer selection of the three Bishop’s Arms pubs in Göteborg, with a nice draft selection (Weyerbacher, Amager and Närke on my last visit) and lots of good stuff on bottles - including old bottles of Närke Kaggen, Ølfabrikken Winterporter and Nøgne Ø Dark Horizon. If that isn’t enough to warrant a visit, their house beer is Ocean Arbetarporter - a delicious imperial porter from Oceanbryggeriet only sold on draft here. Finally, Järntorget opens at noon on Saturdays and Sundays and is thus perfect for an early visit by beer tourists :) Last visit: Feb 4, 2012.
