This place is located pretty far out imo, but I believe instead of walking there you can also take a bus. Anyway, the interior was pretty much the same as the other Bishops Arms I’ve been to. Nice staff (one of whom I had met the evening before in Bishops Arms vasagatan) who speak good English, good service, good selection though some are a bit expensive. Then again, if you want something rare, you just have to be willing to pay for it.
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.
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.

Good selection of both draught and bottle beers but the prices are way to high compared to similar beer pubs in town. The service was bad the time we visited this place and the staff was not interested at all to arrange a place for us to sit. The food was not what one can expect when you see the prices... I will give this place another chance but the staffs attitude and the prices will for sure give them a bad reputation.
Rerate: This time the service was way better than last time, good beer selection.
First stop on a crawl with a friend on 21st June 2012. Traditionally-furnished pub on Folkungagatan, with friendly, welcoming staff and a very good selection of tap and bottle beers. I enjoyed an excellent 40cl of Närke Jontes Atgeir on this visit. Worth the effort of finding.
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.
