I would say they have a marginal selection of beer. Place was warm and comfortable. Service was so-so. Had to go to bar to get our drinks. Restrooms clean. Can't say to much good or bad, was just average with an average experience.

My Swedish friends recommend this place when I visited Stockholm. It was a chill place in a central location. Lots of great craft brews. Bartenders weren't the best though. Would go again!

Normally 3 option like fish and chips or burger as two of three. Last visit portion was 125 SEK. Good list of beers to choose. Quite full always. Cosy, relax atmosphere and stuff smiles even they are busy.

Since we are italians, we showed our italian IDs (with which we entered sweden), but he said he couldn't accept foreign IDs, and that we had to contact our embassy to give us documents. Since sweden is in the eu,... More

I eat a lot of hamburgers. A lot. Most are decent, few are awesome, few are really bad. Tonight I had a rare experience - the hamburger at Bishops Arms on Vasagatan was "the" worst hamburger I've ever had. The bread was old and dry and it was over-toasted. The meat was as dry as styrofoam. Considering all the heat... More

Considering it's a chain of pubs Bishop's Arms is surprisingly genuine - even in Stockholm. Beer selection is quite sufficient and the pub meny can match any menu in Britain. This particular Bishop's Arms is located quite near the central station in Stockholm, the ideal location for travelers who want to get a quick meal and a beer.

I visited Köping for job and I stayed at the Hotel Bishop Arms, so I visited several times the oub during more than a week. The pub is a typical irish pub, with a very interesting selection of beers. The atmosphere is very nice. And the dishes on the fatty side. Nice option in Köping.

It's an ok pub... Good beer selection, pub food.. Good place drop by with friends for some food and beer. Location is great, T-Centralen (subway, commuter trains, Arlanda Express and busses).. Doesn't matter if you're on your way home from work or on your way to another city or Arlanda.. Good place to chill. Durring opening hours that is 😉

Thank Didi M
