Modern but slightly sterile place, conveniently located just near the central train station. Great selection of taps and bottles, very friendly staff, good food. Worth a stop.

Visited September 2012.
We walked over here after Monks Cafe as our second stop in Sweden late on a Friday night. The whole trip was comical because womencanstail was muling a trade box for someone that was destined for manker, who then proceeded to unpack the box and get thrown out for bringing beer into the bar (I guess it’s more frowned upon than in the US). I made sure not to take out the bottle of Slayer wine (Reigh in Blood) from my backpack. We continued to Advocate hard and order a number of Mikkeller beers and a few Swedish beers that we hadn’t tried before. I also spent the money to get a 3 Fonteinen Vintage Gueuze. By the end of the night Danko was drunk enough to invite us over to drink beer from his cellar, pet his cat, pee in his yard, and pay for the cab fare. Good times all around.
Pretty cool bar, open late, with a huge draft selection and lots of bottles as well. Prices are high, but it’s Stockholm, so that’s pretty much standard. Friendly enough staff. Beers were decent. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy a beer. Pretty cool ambiance and decor. Lots of Churchill photos all over the place.
A busy and popular Bishops Arms conveniently located by the entrance to the T-Centralen station (by the exit from the blue line) in Vasagatan. Per later told me that it’s known to be one of the pricier Bishops Arms but I was fresh off the train from Jönköping and most of the beer was less expensive here. There was also a wider range of craft beers on offer, with at least ten to tempt me as I perched on a stool at the bar – the last seat in the house, I think. I settled for the Närke Slättöl – perfect after a hard day’s work and a long train journey.
Re. the Bishops Arms chain, the penny finally dropped with me here. The décor and fittings are similar in all the Bishops Arms I’ve been to. They must have been bought as a job lot. The rowing boat I noticed over the bar at the Gustav Adolfs Torv branch in Malmö wasn’t a local quirk – most of the pubs seem to have something like it. Having said that, if you’re going to have a chain of pubs, this isn’t a bad way to do it and the Bishops Arms seem to be generally more consistent in atmosphere than, say, Wetherspoons in England.
Nice little bar on the main street featuring a respectable taplist and quite good bottle list. Atmosphere is like the main, best Bishop Arms, with good service and similarly sky high prices. Worth a quick stop if nearby as they can have some interesting stuff on tap (they had a Narke on tap when we were here).
I liked this Bishops Arms. Attentive service and more than 350 bottles, sorted by style in different fridges. I spotted many interesting bottles, especially porters and Imperial stouts. Could easily spent a whole evening with beer comrades here! Well, this time I only had time for one beer: Nynashamns The Bishops Arms Kellerbier. Arlanda next. (Visited September 24th 2017)
Located a few steps from The Central Station. As usual you know what you get when you enter a Bishop Arms chain. This one have a really nice beer selection. Probably the best one of these pubs in Stockholm.
Absolutely a good place to start with a beer when you enter Stockholm, and plan you beer walk.
Also ok food.
Situated right in front of the railway station, including the airport train (Arlanda Express), in Stockholm and therefore very convenient as a drop-in while waiting for a train. I had my lunch break here going from Tromsø to Linköping early on a Friday afternoon. Medium sized pub type of place split into a number of drinking and eating areas. Alright and quite relaxing atmosphere. Seems to attract a wide mix of travelling people. A bit slow, but polite service. Some of the staff had beer knowledge. Good range of beers on tap and bottles. I counted nine different bottles from Nøgne Ø only and on tap I enjoyed some very fine ales from Swedish microbreweries (Oceanbryggeriet, Hantverksbryggeriet, Dugges among others). Tidy and clean toilets. Quiet music in the background. The downside was the food. I ordered a burger that was too fried, almost burned, and the accompanying bread too cold. The kitchen certainly is in need of improvements. It should be mentioned that Belgobaren is right across the street (Vasagatan) (visited 25.01.2008).
Located very close to the central station, good for your first or last beer if visiting Stockholm. Rather OK selction that seems to vary a lot, at least on the draught part. Staff haven’t been too knowledgebale or friendly when I’ve been there, but not too bad either. Food as in most BA pubs I’e been to.
The Bishops Arms location near central station downtown. Not as good ambiance wise or beer wise as the Folkungagatan location, but still very nice. Tap selection was pretty good- local craft beer focused. Maybe a few British casks to keep the UK pub theme going. Bottle list is extensive with many refrigerators full of oddball stuff. Strange Mikkeller stuff I’ve never heard of, even some Three Floyds and Alesmith bottles believe it or not. Very impressive. Staff was very friendly, provided recommendations. Food was pretty good- lots of typical Swedish dishes including venison meatballs.
