Tudor Arms: "Voted once best pub outside of the UK" Stockholm Nightlife Tip by budapest8
Stockholm Nightlife: 186 reviews and 173 photos
Finest British pub in Stockholm...Now 41 years old.
The Tudor Arms has a special place in my heart and connection
as the owner, Chris Bellows is from the Isle of Wight and even
a barman called Pat was also from Ryde on the Island like me.
Long before I moved to Stockholm in 1979, the stories about Stockholm
and the Tudor Arms were the stuff of legends. Even one of my sisters
old boyfriends from the Island worked in Stockholm for over a year
as a dental technician and I heard all sorts of stories.
I even met the then Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme back in
1980 coming out of the Ostermalm Tunnelbana and asked him
directions to the Tudor Arms. Sadly he was assassinated in the street
in 1986 when coming out of a cinema with his wife. That was the end of
Swedish politicians mingling with the general public.
The ***TUDOR ARMS*** opened it's doors to the thirsty Stockholm public in October 1969 as the first pub of its kind in Sweden. It was a hit from day one and even today, after the opening of countless imitations around town, it retains its reputation for being the only true British pub in Stockholm. Chris and his dedicated staff, now into the 2nd generation, have been running The Tudor Arms for over 40 years, so if you´re looking for a Great British Pint, some homemade Steak and Mushroom Pie, want to watch live Premiership football, need to brush up your English, or just want to feel completely at home, please go for a visit.
It was the staple event every year when I took my English student groups there for an end of term meal and drink where ENGLISH only was enforced for the evening!
