We didnt try any of the foods, but we were happily put at the bar. A very good selection of sour ales on bottles, and 32 different beers on tap. Many local brews as well. The music is good, and the volume is just enough to carry a conversation, and still distinguish between the good songs in the playlist. The... More

A real lively pub on the night we were there. A huge choice of beers. All pretty expensive & coming in a variety of sizes & strengths. We were there for WOW & judging by the wristbands so were most of the others. I'd go back.

I went there because I heard about how good their burguers are, so I ordered the basic one. They never asked me for the meat cooking point, and I forgot to say it. The result was a too cooked burguer that I couldn't even finish. It was completely dry.

A great little beer pub with a huge selection on tap. It would have been helpful if there were some descriptions available otherwise you are basically trying beers based on what the logo looks like (not a problem if you're working your way through the whole range!). We found the staff actually pretty unhelpful & dismissive when it came to... More

The Rover stands tall and true but only if beer is for you. For dine and wine it may not be sublime but for beer and grub stellar divine. But alas at moment of service rot you feel a blow that Johan wrought.

Great burgers matched with suitable beers thanks to the cunning and engaged staff. Well worth a visit! The quality has been shifting between 2011 and 2015, but the last visit (2015) was great.

Göteborg (Gothenburg) boasts a growing number of pubs serving craft beers, and great food. This is the best!

Together with Ölrepubliken - Rover has the best burgers in town. The "Ass on fire" and the Gustafssons" are both excellent. Rover also has a great selection of beer - not as extensive as one would wish (or like Bar Delerium before it closed). A bit more diversity on tap would make the place perfect. Friendly and helpful service. Suitable... More
