Set in a beautiful country house in Lisvane, The Old Cottage is a cosy retreat serving modern British cuisine. This picturesque country pub is warmed by log fires and boasts a charming bar area and a large dining room with an open kitchen, as well as outdoor seating.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Old Cottage menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include roasted mushrooms, box baked Camembert, and spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar at The Old Cottage restaurant showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at the bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

Within one of the city’s most upscale areas, The Old Cottage in Cardiff is just a 2-minute walk from Lisvane & Thornhill Station.

    The old cottage is a lovely venue. The interior is extremely cosy and a pleasant environment for a meal.
    The food as always was delicious. I am a particular fan of the chips here. We had starter, main and dessert. The Buttermilk chicken was wonderful.
    I would recommend this place to all my friends and I will certainly be returning!

    The food was good but not great. The staff worked so hard to keep everyone fed and watered and not everyone appreciated how hard the 3 employees were working. They were subjected to complaints from customers lacking in patience. The staff stayed pleasant and polite throughout.

    Food was good but after requesting wine we had to ask twice for it that took around 15 minutes to arrive. Also when we sat nobody came to us for around 10 minutes we had to ask to order.
