The Rover was our top spot on a recent visit to the beautiful city of Gothenburg. There was a great selection of beers on for our visit during Gothenburg Beer Week. The service was friendly and professional. Mr S and I did not eat here, but our vegetarian travelling companions did and they really enjoyed their food. Would definitely return... More

Same owner as Ølrepubliken. Good selection on tap, quite pricey bottle list. Lacked a bit on the quality beers, but they had Stigbergets West Coast IPA for instance. Friendly and vibrant atmosphere. Located in the west of the city center. The tram 1 and 6 stops nearby.

We didnt try any of the foods, but we were happily put at the bar. A very good selection of sour ales on bottles, and 32 different beers on tap. Many local brews as well. The music is good, and the volume is just enough to carry a conversation, and still distinguish between the good songs in the playlist. The... More

A real lively pub on the night we were there. A huge choice of beers. All pretty expensive & coming in a variety of sizes & strengths. We were there for WOW & judging by the wristbands so were most of the others. I'd go back.

I went there because I heard about how good their burguers are, so I ordered the basic one. They never asked me for the meat cooking point, and I forgot to say it. The result was a too cooked burguer that I couldn't even finish. It was completely dry.

A great little beer pub with a huge selection on tap. It would have been helpful if there were some descriptions available otherwise you are basically trying beers based on what the logo looks like (not a problem if you're working your way through the whole range!). We found the staff actually pretty unhelpful & dismissive when it came to... More
