The whitewashed walls and slate tiled roof of Old Cottage are the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of Cardiff city centre, while the pub's pretty garden is perfect for al fresco dining in the warm summer months. Split level interiors are decorated in warm tones, and the clever blend of contemporary comfort with pleasing rustic touches are only a forerunner to the impeccable quality of service and attention to detail at this premium country pub.
The a la carte menu opens with sharing plates of mezze with hummus, roasted vegetables, fregola, tzatziki, taramasalata and warm flat breads or antipasti of dolcelatte, Italian meats, marinated vegetables and warm stone-baked flatbreads. The Mediterranean influences continue with individual starters of chermoula and fennel crusted squid with rocket, pineapple and spring onion salsa; and red onion tart with gorgonzola, roasted apple and mustard seed dressing display.
There's a plethora of traditional pub favourites too, and seafood lovers will relish the freshly battered fish and chips with minted mushy peas; salmon and caper fishcakes served with poached egg, chive hollandaise and spinach and sea bass fillets with sweet potato and spinach curry and tzatziki. On Fabulous Fish Fridays it's all of that and more with a bottle of white wine at half the price.
Other hearty main course dishes include spit roast maple gammon with a brussel sprout and parmesan gratin; braised short rib of beef with Lea & Perrins glaze, bubble and squeak and crispy fried onions as well as spit chicken with lemon, roast garlic, thyme and frites. Steak and Wine Supper Wednesdays offer a range of the best quality steaks along with a bottle of red wine at a generous 50% discount.
Lazy weekends acquire a flavour of their own at the Old Cottage with a variety of delectable roasts with all the trimmings for Sunday lunch. For a regular weekday, a two-course pre fixe menu offers a quick and affordable lunch and early dinner. For that special occasion, the Supper Club menu offers a more lavish two-course gourmet menu for two along with a bottle of the prestigious Rothschild champagne for just £40.
Tempting desserts are some of the best to be found anywhere and include apple and blackcurrant crumble with vanilla custard, sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream and choux bun with fresh cream, espresso and chocolate sauce.
A selection of aperitifs, digestifs, unique cask ales, soft drinks and hot drinks quenches the thirst. The wine list offers a variety of Mediterranean whites and reds including an Airen from Spain, a Pinot Grigio from Italy, a Shiraz from Sicily and a Claret from Bordeaux.
