Great live music

Don't miss the live music here. Wonderful crowd involvement singing along with many American classics. Interesting to be in a bar in Sweden and hear Swedes singing great American songs from the 1960s and 70s. Enjoy a pint and song. Trivia night on Tuesday is fun and challenging as well.

Just after palace's visit, you can go there for a break. Just to drink a beer with a good selection or also to eat. I recomend the fish and chips with the catch of the day, wrap in salmon filet. Original and tasty. On screen sport event, service with smile, and with good timing.

A good bar to drop in if you feel like a pint and listening to some music. They have really good troubadours (the Swedish term - person with guitar to you and me), and the quality of music is really very high. A wild mix of guests, tourists of course, but quite a few actual Irish customers - which is... More

Oh wow.....this place does a damn good burger. And I'm an expert. We found this place on our first night whilst we were walking around Gamla Stan. It doesn't scream and shout from the outside but do try it and you won't be disappointed. It looks like a quite typical British style pub when you go in so we felt... More

... perhaps that doesn't matter. We were looking for a place to have a couple of drinks on a Sunday night after 9pm. The streets of Gamla Stan roll up after 8pm and so it was nice to find this warm, friendly place. Yes, the service is a little on the slack side, but there was one bartender, one "waitress"... More

We get in, someone gives us a table and all fine. order for drinks comes after few minutes, even though pub wasn't busy yet... More

Went there almost every night for a work project out there for a couple of months. Serious 'back at home' feel and the bar staff are incredibly friendly. Pretty much any football match including an English team is on (and can be requested if not) and the atmosphere is always bubbly and friendly. Food was really good on the few... More

I stopped by with my girlfriend after the recommendation from TripAdvisor application and effectively very nice place. The burgers were delicious the atmosphere cosy and we even got a concert of a guy and his guitar. I could complain about the noise but what do you expect? This is an Irish pub ;) !

The meal is good, the service is good, but the best part in my opinion is the Pub Quiz. I was here with some friends and we had fun, but you need to get early, it is usually crowded.
