“Plenty of beers, best beef tartar in town !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

Really good pub. Plenty beer brands and tastes, lots of whiskeys as well. Very good burgers and fries. Beef tartar is amazing, best in town. You can order half or full portion.
Don't be late, it's hard to find a table or a seat, even in the bar. If you go for a after work, be there on time.

“Great burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2011

Very pub with excellent food. The burgers were particularly good (and big!). The atmosphere and service were also excellent. The place is not very big so go early or late.

“Not consistent”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2010

Burger was raw, sent back, and the same burger, complete with bite missing was brought back to the table.. and... still raw.... chips undercooked too. Shame. As it was soo good last Sunday. Just good honest pub grub. Not today. Serving raw burgers is dangerous. Maybe different chefs?

“Don't be put off by the whole 'Irish pub' thing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2010

We were very skeptical about going to an Irish pub in Sweden, but The Rover exceeded our expectations. For a start, there's an awesome range of beers, both Scandinavian and from further afield.

Secondly, the service is extremely friendly. The second time we went there business was pretty quiet, and the bar staff let us sample a number of beers before we decided upon what we wanted to order.

And finally there is the food. On our first visit we played it safe and had burgers, which were nothing special, but filling. On our second visit we went for something a bit more Swedish and had the raggmunk, what I'd call potato pancakes with delicious bacon and lingonberries. It was fantastic!
