The L-formed pub is divided into two sections: A bar and a dining room. Booth does a good job in looking like a more fashionable British gastropub: Lots of oak, brass and stained glass.

In the right fridge one can find bottled beers from Swedish macro- and microbreweries, the UK, Germany and the US. And the fridge at the left corner is filled with Belgian brews including most of the Trappists. On tap: British, Swedish, German and Belgian beers, mostly from macrobreweries. 2-3 taps are reserved for a rotating assortment of Swedish micros.

The food is in the gastropub tradition: Mostly classic French-inspired fine dining food. Note that there is another menu with more basic pub grub. I had the lobster soup and the catfish. Both dishes were nicely arranged on the plates and tasted good although the arrangement made the fish a bit dry.

I must give the pub praises as they recommend a beer for each dish. Sometimes brave, but they are well sampled and make the food even better! Menus in English are available.

The staff seemed to know enough to get on with the work, but at some time they didn't have a too deep knowledge concerning the beers. Besides that they were very polite, effective and friendly.

As for the beers, they were all served in correct glasses, poured in a good manner.

In the summertime, a small beer garden is set up at the sidewalk.

PS: Look at the wallpapers...
