Great little place with a tremendous selection of beers from around the world, heavy of Sweden, of course, but Scotland, USA and Iceland as well. Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. A must try in Stockholm.
Wide and varied selection same as many of the other Bishop Arms in Sweden. sidewalk patio, a number of hand pumps, expansive interior. Solid selection of taps but more limited number of bottles compared to all other non-Akkurat bars in Stockholm.

We visited here on Saturday 19th November 2016, this being our birthday weekend away. We arrived here after visiting the Fotografiska museum which is a short 5mins walk away and is well worth a visit, it was truly excellent. This Bishops Arms is located on the eastern side of Sodermalm and if walking from central station would take about 40 mins, we never used public transport all weekend, however this looked a well connected area for buses and the underground. It in on Folkungagatan which is one of the busier streets on Sodermalm and close’ish’ to the intersection with Renstiernasgata. There is a Systembolaget pretty much next door.
Inside this looked a jolly large place with a couple of levels, with the bar on the lower ground level, though there was a stair lift type contraption to assist wheelchair users or those less mobile to access this level. I didn’t explore this place at all, the bar was straight ahead on this level and we headed there and then sat close by, though the look of this place was not too dissimilar to a UK pub in fact I was reminded of a JDW.
There was an excellent choice of beers on keg and also cask I noticed, I was very impressed with the selection we settled on a Lervig 3 Bean Stout (we love this beer) and a Warpigs Booty Calls (I think that was the name) however at 5.8% I cannot see how it could really be described as a Session IPA.
We liked this place, it was large, comfortable and the price were reasonable. The music selection was quite bizarre, starting with Echo and the Bunnymen and an acoustic version of The Game so thumbs up for that but then through to Duran Duran and The Union of the Snake, mmhhh.....with an equally bizarre choice of songs en route, Spotify does amaze me at times with how it selects.
Wonderful selection of rotating taps as even better bottle list. Found some long time wants on the bottle list. Prices are very high, as usual in this country, perhaps even higher than normal for Stockholm. Service was great, very friendly and helpful. Wonderful atmosphere, with a well-laid out establishment. Definitely worthy of a stop when in town.
A top place in Stockholm for beer: less fancy than Akkuratt, great service, quiet and calm. Still looks like a UK pub inside with some English hand pull cask beers. A very impressive bottle lists boasts beer from Iceland, Narke Kaggen, Alesmith, Port Brewing, Three Floyds. Lots of random oddball rarities. Taps are mostly Swedish crafts. Correct glassware, proper pours, and very friendly staff with some good recommendations. Probably my favorite beer bar in Stockholm.
We visited this branch of Bishop’s Arms on a Saturday during the day. Interior is traditional and is reminiscent of an upmarket Wetherspoons! Staff were friendly and fairly knowledgeable. The tap selection was decent with the likes of Brewdog, North Coast, Mikkeller and some Swedish micros (but sadly no Narke) on offer. The bottle list is pretty special indeed. They had plenty of interesting things to choose from: Brewdog Absrakts, Cigar City, Lost Abbey Sours, Heady Topper etc…… Some of the rarer stuff has a fairly ludicrous price-tag to match though! Given the selection I would return in the future.
As I arrived, a big sign tells me they have Närke Folk-Ale available. Once I enter it has been off the taps for quite some time. I decide to go for one of the beers from Malmö, but no matter how much I ask, I cant get a small glass, but have to go for à big. I dont think the waitress even bothered to look at me during the procedure of ordering, poring, serving and arranging payment for the beer. Otherwise à standard Bishops Arms with some nice stuff on bottles.
Visited first time on August 5, 2010. Been there more, latest end of February 2013, followed by Friday September 11, 2015. Lastest visit arrived 1530 to not so crowded, stayed until 2130, had people all the time, though not crowded. Apparently a fairly slow Friday as compared to usual. Located a fair bit from the metro station, but not too far for a refreshing walk to build up your thirst. There are a few busses stopping nearby. Parking on the street, 20 SEK/h weekdays until 1700, then free. Parking can be very difficult to find though. In summer a small outdoor seating area, but all year round a big indoor seating in several levels. As for most BA pubs a quite OK range of draught and bottled beers, though the staff a few times I’ve visited have been somewhat clueless to what is happening outside of their own pub. This latest time they were up to speed though, very friendly and service minded. Only time I ate was this last visit, had fish and chips which was standard OK to good. Fish portion was a bit small though and the price to the high side for all food. Nice and rather cozy place a bit from the beaten path of the other craft beer bars, but well worth a visit I’d say.
Fantastic atmosphere a really beautiful maze of a pub with a library in the back! The service was great & two närke APA’s made for an impromptu tasting. If you want to try more beers & save a bit of cash they do 1.5cl tasters. A really nice tap list & great bottle list/fridge but very very high prices on the rare stuff. Worth checking out.
Really cozy bar with some nice outdoor seating. The menu is of course stellar- I enjoyed the Armand and Tomme blend from 3F and contemplated getting some of the Abstrakts, but they were very pricy. Nice tap list and pretty good service.
