gnoff  (600) Mölndal, Sweden | September 12, 2015
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.

Fin  (1025) Merton, Oxfordshire, England, England | November 20, 2016


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.

kraddel  (268) some beerplace , Belgium | November 5, 2016
the highest rated Bishops arms, is located a bit further away from the real ’craftbeer-bar hotspot’ yet perfectly manageable by foot. The interior is classy, very wide spread seats, as well as a cosy bar. The vastagatan one ( if I spell it correct? ) seemed to have more choice, but overall less interesting. this place sells AB:04 in november 2016 ! ( amongst other great beers) . A bit high in pricing, but still OK . Service was extremely friendly ( I had a guy who moved in from the UK) . If you have time for it, this is a place to swing by. If not, you didn’t miss Stockholms’ best, though. Compared to other Bishops arms, this wins by far ! best service ( extreme big difference) , a menu (!) and even pricemarks on the beers in the fridges, if you just don’t wanna look at the menu for some reason.

Good Bishops Arms. Happened to have Omnipollo weekend at my visit. Good selection on tap and also in the fridges. Like the Belgo fridge... However, twice in a couple of weeks in two different Bishops I have had Green Flash bottles which have passed the best by date... How come? Green Flash is good, man... The first (in Trollhättan, Sweden) was one of their higher abv beers so it didn’t matter - it could bare the "maturation", but this one was a Session IPA. Better control of what’s in them fridges is in order...

Visited at friday when Swedish importer Brill has the upper part of the restaurant for quite fun stuff (Toppling Goliath and 3F Hommage among others tonight). Friendly service and decent food today. Value is typical swedish, on the expensive side but not extreme in any way. Not so crowded, getting a spot at 8pm was no problem at all. 5-10 minutes walk from nearest metro or 3-4 from bus, easy to find.

Fairly standard Bishops Arms a bit away from the city centre. Has chair lift for disabled people. Good selection of tap and bottled beers. Good service. When I first came to Sweden I thought Bishops Arms were fantastic but when I compare to the other bars available they are just not quite there.

One of the best bar in Stockholm, as for me. Awesome beer selection (local and worldwide), cool staff, nice atmosphere inside. Definately worth to visit.
