One flight up in an old (duh) building. Nice Bishops with a good if not excellent selection.

From the entrance at street level, go upstairs to this large and spacious Bishops Arms pub. I didn't notice the nice view others have written about, but it was dark outside when I visited and I sat by the bar counter. Not very crowded at 22.00 a Saturday in a touristy area. Strange. The beer selection this day didn't impress me at all. Mostly light lagers and hardly any tempting craft beers from small breweries. My choice was a house beer from Skebo, just a pale ale. There are better beer bars in Gamla Stan. (Visited September 23rd 2017)

Located in the Old Town, not far from metro station Gamla Stan. On the first floor in an alley just above the Flying Elk. Fairly spacious, with interior in the same style as the other Bishop’s Arms pubs. Around 30 taps, some usual suspects, but around 20 guest beers of good quality, Swedish and imported craft beers from around the world.. Good selection of bottled beers as well. Service is friendly and efficient. Good pub food. Not the best pub in town, but well worth a visit if you’re in the Old Town.

Located in the worst tourist trap area. And above The Flying Elk. As usual you know what you get when you enter a Bishop Arms chain. This one have a really nice beer selection. Better than many of the others. I would still prefer the bars “on the other side”. Akkurat, Oliver Twist etc

Opposite the Gamla Stan T-Station. Spacy with a good sea view. Close to 30 beers on tap. A bit touristy.

Gamla Stan is the super-touristic area hot-spot in Stockholm. Avoided by many locals, and you quickly see why. All bishops Arms are just commercial craftbeerbars, what we In Belgium concider a tourist trap, but with the difference this actually has good beers ( a load of them ) and sometimes good service. Out of the 3 I visited ( so far? ) this was the least one. The comercial character isn’t hidden at all here. based on a level 1 hight, in the downtown of tourist center-Island, this is bound to be overly visited by tourists. No menu ( folksgatan was the only of 3 that did , that deserves a big + for that location) so very unclear. Service seemed hasty and uninterested to me. The beers in the fridge’s still looked pretty good, selection wise, but if you’re in Stockholm, you can say that for (2?) dozen of bars. So no need to come here specificaly, yet no need to start commiting hatecrimes towards it either .

Quirky BA in Old Town in Stockholm; typical BA decor but with a twist, typical BA selection of beers and whiskies, but a sad looking, short menu. The service was decent, but not more than that. The beer knowledge was not very impressive and I got the feeling they just wanted to sell and move on to the next customer. The food helpings were not very impressive and they had ran out of ESB on my second visit.

Lokalizacja znakomita. Pub naprawdê du¿y, przestrzenny i klimatyczny. Jest z czego wybraæ (krany i butelki). Piwa angielskie, amerykañskie, norweskie i co najwa¿niejsze dla mnie: szwedzkie. Obs³uga proponuje próbki przed zakupem. W porównaniu z lokalami znajduj±cymi siê dalej od centrum ceny wy¿sze. Mimo, ¿e pub jest naprawdê du¿y, to atmosfera piwna bardzo pozytywna.

Situated on a first floor overlooking the water. Lot of glass windows which means it can get a lot of sunshine making it quite attractive. Usual interesting selection of beers and close to Monks Porter a House means that it is worth visiting on a Stockholm beer tour.
