“Good selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Bishop Arms is a chain of pubs with a good but somewhat expensive selection of beers. They range from Swedish to British, German and Belgian. They are all in the popular British style with the usual paraphernalia on the walls. This one is situated near the central station which means they get a lot of visitors. It's less cosy than some of the others.

“Good place for a beer and average for food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

If drinking a good pint and have expertise behind the counter is important for you then this is the place. The new manager obviously has a great interest in beer and is very knowledgeable on the subject. For foreigners coming to Stockholm in business staying in one of the hotels close to the central station Bishops arms is well worth a visit.

The manager can guide you through an extensive assortment of beer from Swedish microbreweries on tap. You do not go to this place and order a Carlsberg hof.

The food is not very fantastic so I suggest that you have a beer or two here either before dinner or after. There is a great place to eat just 150 meters further up on Vasagatan called Duvel. They are specializing in Belgian beer and also have great food.

“Wide Choice Of Beer With A Friendly Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Traditional pub with a good selection of beers with a limited food menu.

The food was reasonable but there was no table service with all orders at the bar.

“conveniently situated next to Arlanda express terminus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Visited here on a Thursday night. It was bustling with Swedes returning from work/shopping. Like many swedish bars it has a massive choice of beers but beware - some of them are up to 8% alcohol. Having said that, some of the measures are quite small with 330/400ml not uncommon. Good atmosphere.

Nice bar with a great variety of beers on draught and bottles. The staff is ok. Outdoor seating is possible. Close to Arlanda Express. Nice and quaint toilet ;o).
