It's so very difficult to please everybody these days. And that makes The Cottage's run of form on the feedback front especially impressive.

The Earlsdon boozer has been awash with a torrent of compliments on Tripadvisor in recent months. It went for months this year without anyone posting an appraisal short of full marks on the highly-respected travel website.

Eight of the last ten reviews dished out five stars to the Warwick Street watering hole, with one of the most recent particularly taken by its Sunday lunch. "It clearly has the edge for hospitality and the home-made Yorkshire puddings were amazing," they said. "We will definitely be returning. The service was second to none."

Another review this year labelled The Cottage 'the best pub in the Earlsdon area by far'. "Welcoming and friendly staff; large interior and outdoor spaces (always a great atmosphere); board games for the kids; weekly quiz is always great fun; freshly made pizzas are lovely," they said.

The feeling was mutual among a third commentator who also said they would 'highly recommend' after visiting the establishment during one of its Thursday quiz nights. "So busy, great atmosphere," they said. "Plenty of bar staff, great quiz… And a delicious pizza."

"What a fabulous, friendly pub this has become," another wrote. "We live locally and have been a few times but most recently for the quiz on a Thursday night. It really is just a good, fun night out with a great crowd.
