Alan Hurdle left this review about Olde Cottage

An excellent local pub with superb beer. Just 6 minutes from the station (don't trust the open street map diversion!). Always my first port of call when arriving by train (turn right outside the station and follow the road). Has a bagatelle table with a team in the Chester Bagatelle League. A very friendly place. Wins many local beer/pub awards. A 9.5 pub.

a traditional and old fashioned sport led pub on Chester’s multicultural Brook Street. Down to earth with a barman that says ‘job’s a good un’ about every 10 seconds. I liked this proper pub and it was a much needed tonic after suffering the horrors of the Lock Keeper down the road.

A superb Pub Man's pub. It’s unashamedly old school – a comfy, traditional 60's refit U-shaped interior with ceiling beams, frosted windows, banquettes, pub carpet, dark varnish wood. Dart board and pool spotted, I assume the bagatelle is still around but I didn’t venture to the far end of the left hand side. Telly competing with music was a slight grate. Four pumps, all on; Wychwood Dirty Tackle, Otter Bitter (NBSS 3.5) Timothy Taylor Golden Best (NBSS 3) and White Rat (NBSS 4), a solid line-up of Beers You’ve Heard Of. The friendly barmaid gave us some free credits on the jukey. The atmosphere was friendly, convivial and the place was a general joy to be in. The best in Chester for me and should be the ‘must visit’ when you’re in town.
