    Bishops Arms: A nice theme pub

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bishops Arms belong to a Swedish chain of pubs in major cities (look for the blue door) and are often connected to hotels in the Elite chain, but in their own cosy pub premises next door to the hotels. The pub interiors are imported stock, lock and barrell from England and Malmö's first Bishops Arms takes its interior from an old Victorian church. Definately one of the better pub atmospheres you will find outside Britain but not perfect. A good British and international beer list though, and many good whiskies too (as well as whisky evenings). Add to that its perfect location for travellers - opposite the Central station - and you wonder why it isn't always as crowded as at weekends. It also has the advantage of Sunday opening, when many other Malmö pubs are closed and you find yourself in ordinary bars instead. My main issue with this place is that the cosyness all feels quite "arranged" rather than natural. Moreover, whilst their assortment of beer cannot be faulted (especially loads of British but also Belgian and some German and Czech), I find that they do not always serve a good draft so do go for a bottle if you visit. These are the resons for not getting a higher rate.

    In 2010 a second Bishops Arms opened in Gustav Adolf Square which is even nicer in my opinion, and where an old Swedish TV comedian runs quiz nights in Swedish occasionally, but as with the other one, it is quite expensive for being a pub and special guest beers can ruin you if you are not prepared for it. Decent pub food if you get hungry.

    Favorite Dish: Belhaven brews :-)))
