The pub offers a fun and hearty environment despite being a standard franchise. The crowd is a good mix of young and old. Service is nice and prices are decent.

English style pub. Food and drinks are ordered at the bar. The food was just OK. Very hard to get a table.

The Bishops Arms is a great pub, I particularly like the atmosphere of the library towards the back.

I was on cruise with Wasa Express to Umeå and we went in to the town center and there I visited this pub for a Guinness. The pub has a warm, nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

Good reliable pub food with great choice of drinks. Open when some other restaurants are not. Was not busy mid-week so food came fairly quickly.

The Bishops Arms in Umeå is an average pub and restaurant. The food is pretty good, but not fantastic. On the other hand, it is not very expensive and the atmosphere is a good. The serving of the food was a bit slow though.

Nice centrally located pub. Very good selection of different beers. On Friday evening the pub was fairly crowded and it took a while to get our meals but it was worth waiting for. Best fish and chips I have ever had (been to UK also).
