Excellent Sunday roast with interesting array of vegetables, plated and served at table (so much better than those places that make you queue up!). Very busy hence rather noisy but the staff remained very calm and efficient despite the pressure.

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.

    Dining in the restaurant is good- service , menu variety and quality are good. For a pub my verdict is “better than a run of the mill pub” - enjoyable experience always. I can’t say the same for dining in the bar area.

  • ((((( 26 August 2017 by Alison Bourne from Cardiff

    Loved it, the whole experience from start the finish was fabulous. From bar staff to waiter, can't fault it. I had chicken and Leek pie with ham hock crust which was to die for.

    Very pleasant souroudings, outside seating area secluded and ideal if the weather is warm to eat al fresco. Indoor was welcoming, staff very friendly, no pressure to order which we like because we like to chat, catch up with family who we haven't seen in a while. Overall a very pleasant dining experience which we would highly recommend.

    A lovely country pub and restaurant. Have visited previously and always enjoyed it. However on this occasion we were very disappointed as we felt it was very poor value for money.

    Really nice meal overall. The squid starter is particularly tasty and a good one to share. The lobster + crab fish cakes were delicious with plenty of fish and not dry.
