Been here a few times over the years. Has a nice terrace summertime, otherwise it looks quite much like any Bishops Arms in Sweden. Good selection of draught beers and also has some more special bottled beers as well. Friendly service and they know what the staff has always known what they are selling. Like most places in Gothenburg seem to do now is that they also serve a size called Galopp, which is good for tasting purposes.

I liked this pub, visited an early afternoon March 27 th. I wanted to try many new beer and ordered several 25 cl samples, mostly Swedish micro. Friendly and helpful staff and nice pub-interior. Did not eat

Not the best BS in Gbg. Haven’t been in their outdoor serving area, yet. Perhaps I’ll reconsider my rating... 3 years later: By far the best BA in town, also hosting the porter week, with excellent porters ;)

The best bishop’s arms in gothenburg. A very nice interior aged back a couple of centuries. Very professional bar men. Since it’s not placed in the exact touristic centre of town it tends not to be very crowded.

Visited twice. Good selection for Sweden, including 2-3 British cask ales. Some good stuff from Swedish micro breweries too.Their specially brewed Järntorgets Arbetarporter (from Oceanbryggeriet) is worth the journey alone! Friendly staff, good outdoor seating area. The hamburgers were tasty, but what’s up with all this Thousand Islands dressing that so many Scandinavian burger joints insist on putting on their burgers?

sebletitje  (428) Enghien, Belgium | June 28, 2009
Visited with Gnoff. Nice atmosphere that feels very British with an old Victorian style, many great beers on tap (many local ones) and friendly service. They have a lot of rarities that don’t go to the US market or even outside of Sweden. It’s Sweden, and yes, once again beers are damn expensive. You might end up spending a good 89SEK for a tasteless lager.

Seemed like a really nice Bishops Arms, of course a lot bigger selection than I’m used too in Karlstad. Very nice that we could get a 39 kr sample of Ocean Järntorgets Arbetarporter.

Decent selection of swedish micros and english ales on tap (not cask). Some American bottled beers. The usually have some Nögne and Mikkeller beer on bottle. Good whisky selection. Prices are high. You can sit outside in the summertime.

The best Bishops Arms in Göteborg. A nice place with good beers, though it gets rather crowded early evenings on friday and saturday.

Seemed to end up as a favorite pub on my last stay in Gothenburg. At least the one I returned to most frequently. That might have to do with the central location and the fine outdoor seating. Very friendly staff, even got a tour of their cellar. Nice toilet conditions, even though it might be few of them on a crowded night. Good selection on beers on both tap and bottle, and the prices aren’t bad. At least not for a Norwegian. Nice food too, in a pub-ish way.
