“Nice "british" pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

The Bishop's Arms in Umeå has made a much needed renovation. It has gone from a narrow, cramped pub with nothing special on the menu to being a nice, spacious pub with good food. Try their Moose Burger with Lingonberry ketchup, it has become my favorite. The occasions when I have been there, it has been almost lot's of people so prepare to wait for the food. Some of the staff has been really "sleepy" (Oh, do we have customers?), other have been really good.

“Busy Pub in Central Umeå”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

There is alot of people here and the bar is allways jammed packed. Dont go here expecting a restaurant, even though the food isnt bad, its just not alot to choose from. The service isnt bad, but its not stunning either. But if you want to drink ale, talk, laugh, have a plate of bar-snacks. There is no better place to go in Umeå. Get here early, sometimes its even hard to find a table at 4 a clock.

“Self-serve good beer and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

This is a great place to pull up to the bar or table and have a great conversation with your friends. After a certain time the don't have wait staff, but the service was quick. The food was also pretty good and they had a great selection of local/regional beers. If I lived in Umeå I would definitely be a frequent visitor.

“Go only if you have PLENTY of time”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

Food is standard pub food. The service is conducted by very inexperienced youngsters who aren't rude but nonchalant. The place wasnt busy but my burger took a good 55 minutes to arrive. No excuses when it finally arrived.
