Pub-dinner with your family

Old Beefeater Inn has become a regular place to visit when in Gothenburg for me and my family. Friendly atmosphere, nice food, different. A pub is not where I normally would take my bigger kids for dinner, but it is a cool, different place to have dinner, at least compared to where I usually eat.

We are Brits living in jonkoping so frequently travel to Gothenburg for a weekend & to top up with decaf tea bags in the English shop next door to the old beef eater. This is the first time we have eaten here though so we had some lunch, Swedish meatballs, fish & chips washed down with stowford press cider ...excellent!... More

We decided to check out the food here after reading lots of good reviews, as well as the fact that I like to check out English pubs as an Englishman abroad! I always the the over-exaggeration of the decor in these places. You'd be hard pushed to find an English pub in England these days so the kitchy trinkets, scarves... More

Beefeater is a proper local where guests are known by their first name and the friendly regulars are to be found at their usual table. The staf is welcoming and pulls a pint from the few but well choosen selection of beers on tap.

As a visitor from South Africa, our restaurant experience in Sweden has been mediocre and expensive to say the least so it was refreshing to find good pub grub and a freindly atmosphere here at the Beefeater. Good draught beer, excellent array of salads and all in all a worthwhile lunch time venue.

Excellent atmosphere, often, excellent service. But as a regular you are stuck. The menu is not what you expect at your local pub, not in Gothenurg, these guys can cook and do it well. They also serve excellent beer. If you get the chance, during the spring and summer sit outside quite early (mid-day) and you will get a nice... More

We have had several meals here. The food was healthy with a organic twist to it. The beef is grass fed. The food came out hot and nicely presented. We have enjoyed 6 dishes there. They all have been great. The staff works hard as a team to make sure that every one is taken care of. We have met... More

The restaurant, where you can also stop just to have a beer as it's a pub, is located in Haga, 10 minutes walking from downtown. My boyfriend and I spent a pleasant evening with pretty good food and had a pleasant chatting with a Swedish couple seated beside us. My boyfriend ordered a Diablo Burger, a little spicy, really good,... More

I have been twice so it is worth going back however I ordered the fish and chips on the second trip which was a mistake. I was hoping for a good British style fish and chips but was really disappointed. It was a more of a thin Panko style batter than your traditional British batter which in my opinion makes... More
