This place is a very low key and enjoyable English style pub. Staff was knowledgeable and kind. The selection was a good amount of foreign stuff with some great local Scandinavian flavors. The food was amazing, but the portions were small. Expensive by Swedish standards even. All in all, I enjoyed hanging out here the most because it was so quiet. Worth the visit.

English style pub very close to Central station. Quite large place, but absolutely packed at friday evening. Managed to find a corner of table to lean on and thats about it. Noisy place. Nice selection of beers and very helpful staff if you can’t make up you mind. Keep eye on fridge, some rarities there.

Quite large and centrally located bar with a large tap list and a nice selection of bottled beers, mostly from Scandinavia and USA. Some rarities available as well, but they are really expensive. You should definitely visit this place if you are in the area.

No beer list, no prices and so insultingly expensive that I walked out without ordering.

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.

Was hungry near the train station so I thought I’d check it out. Bishops Arms has a reputation for good beer selection, so I was severely disappointed to see only macro lager on tap. Dingy carpeting. I left without ordering anything.

Good location, but the barroom isn’t perfect. Staff is resonably good, but not always as quick as would be prefered. Many - to many - taps of silly lager-beers, but that makes it easier to attract freinds who just lika to drink beer - to come with to BA-V. Lots and Lots of Bottles, but no bottle-list. The Taps of GOOD beer changes regulary, I find some really nice taps almost every time I’m there. Food is OK, but I miss a really good "snack-selection" - other than peanuts, olivs and winegar cucumbers. I’d like some really god chees! It’s not cheap, some of the bottles are real walletdestroyer, but it’s good stuff. Overalll - I like it!

Spent many hours here @ my stay in Stockholm. As we were quite hungry after a the travel we started of with a totally average lunch her, accompanied by some quite interesting and hard-to-get beers. Took a while for me to make contact with the staff, but when I first got their attention and they realized that I was above average interested in their bottle selection, I had their attention all day. Did not count, but it must have been about 20+ beers on tap plus a great bottle selection. The prices are what you can expect, but not to horrible. At night the place is packed, but we got lucky and found a small table. I’ll definitely be back her @ my next Stockholm visit.

Visited on a Wednesday afternoon. Typical English pub-style bar/restaurant. Long bar, lots of space, enough seats, some of them really comfortable looking. Plenty of taps with a lot of macro’s on and some English cask ales, but also quite some Swedish micro’s. Prices are somewhat higher than average in Stockholm. Had a club sandwich which was OK. Nice enough bar. And please, if you have that many bottled beers, make a beer list. I’m not gonna go over all the fridges to see what you’ve got from across the bar.

Went there with omhper. Close to Centralen so it really does goot that waiting room feeling as he put it. A lot of people, most in a hurry, busy bartenders. The tap list seemed quite good and the bottled list was quite awesome too, featuring some great Närkes and rare foreign stuff, but this is BA -> this is expensive even for Sweden. Per got me the Rail Ale and the Helsinge Pilsener (thanks!). If you visit Stockholm, you’ll definitely be at some point or the other nearby, so do visit it, scan the tap list (heck, even the bottle list) for something rare, and you will find something rare, and then go somewhere more appealing.
