Will Larter left this review about The Cottage

Not to be confused with the attractive Brains pub of the same name on St Mary Street, this is a substantial back street pub in the splendidly named and village-like area of Splott, just outside the city centre and separated from it by the railway tracks, though there is a bridge or two. I called in on my way into town (I was staying at the nearby modern youth hostel), just to see if there was any real ale on. There were a couple of hand pumps, one with no pump clip, the other with Old Speckled Hen. I'd have stopped for a swift half even though the beer is, in my opinion, easily the worst in the Greene King stable, but there was some ear-splittingly loud music dominating the whole pub, which was almost empty at the time, so I turned around and left them to it.
