I've had many a beer here on business trips and the bartenders are well versed in what they're providing. Don't be afraid to ask for a sample or more details on a beverage, it was a fun conversation.

So many beers you will need to come back a couple times to try a quarter of them. Staff is great and food ain't nothing to turn your nose up at.

As per my hotel review. Great beer selection and enlist pub from the 70's but let down by being ushered out of the pub 15 minutes before closing time. And this is the hotel bar

Stopped in 2 nights and a row and am pleased I did. The first night was for a night cap after dinner at the local Greek restaurant. .. that turned into some great conversations with locals. The second night was time to try the food. I had the large Caesar salad, and am sad to report that I was underwhelmed.... More

This charming British style pub has tons of character and really great service. The atmosphere is casual and fun. The food is excellent. Try the fish and chips, the shrimp sandwich, the chicken Caesar salad, or the fried char. You won't be disappointed!

This pub is at the end of a row of pubs just of the main square in Eskilstuna. Nice friendly staff and quiet. Other pubs had the World Cup on overload or live music. This pub was practically empty while the others were packed. It was nice to get away from all the mayhem for a while. They also have... More

Fish and ships are good, great place anyway as an english/Irish pub, the food is good enough. A bit pricy I would say but you go there mostly because the location and atmosphere is great. The food will not disapoint you. Nice.

Fully branded multi franchise type bar. Good selection of beers, very busy place but unfortunately the food was nothing more than average with standard dishes adequately prepared. Better than going hungry but not worth making a special visit.

The Bishops Arms was the first restaurant (bar) that I ate in during my first trip to Sweden and I was more than happy to go back during my second trip. They have moved into a new location about 3 blocks up from their previous spot. It's much larger but I will admit it lacks a bit of the character... More
