We were staying at the Hotel Avery. This was convenient for our last evening, as we had my 3 year old grandson with us. They obliged us by doing a pasta dish for the little one. My salad with thin layers of steak and blue cheese was lovely. We were the only ones eating in there, so there was only one Choice of dessert. Also the menu for main courses were limited.

It is an hospitable pub. We were there while the city was quiet, owing to the holiday season.

Relaxed style semi-student bar. Good live music and quizzes here some nights. Nice place to just sit and chat in a warm environment. Food is nothing special. Drinks are expensive, but cheaper than other places in the centre.

So.... you finally get to Sweden in December - by train, at night, in the cold, rugged up in twenty layers of clothing. Yes, it's gorgeous, and you know you're going further North later on in your trip to see the Northern lights and other great bucket list sights. But you just have a craving for some hearty 'home' food, some familiar accents and a fireplace with a cold ale. Enter Pipes of Scotland to give you that much needed boost of 'home'. Wonderful!

This is a very cosy pub with good options both brinks and food. They have good food for vegetarians as well. When I was there they had a Sami evening with joikslam and this happening was really popular. Crowded inside which gave a very family-like feeling. They have quite a few happenings now and then at this Place.

Thank you Ida for your feedback and taking the time to write about your experience.
The food served in the pub is cooked in the same kitchen as the Angelini restaurant.
The pub has live music every week, Wednesday to Saturday during the period September to May
We hope that we will see you again soon.

I hate going to British stuff abroad but we arrived late to Hotel Aveny and this was accessible from indoors so we went. A great find! Friendly service, great choice of food and drinks (even had two vegan options - the crispy mushroom noodle dish was fab), and really lively. You might struggle to get a table at times or when stuff is on - eg we stayed for the Pop Quiz, which was fantastic, music-based, free to enter, and the questions are written down so you can get by with imperfect Swedish! The place was packed for it, with people sat on the floor too. But it was a great place, so I understand that. Pricy, but no pricier than any other bar/pub in Sweden!

Hello Spiky7!

Thank You for Your nice review!

We are glad to hear that You enjoyed our service and our fine selection of food and drinks. It's also pleasant to hear that You enjoyed our vegan dishes on the menu.

The Pop Quiz is very popular so we try to find as many solutions possible for people to be able to participate - and sometimes the floor is the best solution at the time.

You are very welcome back to our pub if you're around Umeå another time!
