user reviews of the Cowherds Inn, Southampton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Doom Bar, Black Sheep and Ringwood Best on the handles when I visited, my Doom Bar was in good condition. Luckily it wasn't particularly busy so a reasonable service was available. In school holidays previously it was so busy that I walked out as it was going to be a thirsty wait so it's worth bearing that in mind. Other people's food seemed OK, my sandwich with salad (could have had chips instead of the salad) was very good. A rambling sort of pub which has some very old parts with a flagstone floor.

Large and popular pub in a good location on Southampton Common. Service, food and drink far too variable. Tonight, only one real ale on and refused service just before 10:30pm (Sunday night) with the disinterested member of staff on the bar saying they closed at 10:30, while a couple of weeks ago still served at 11pm on a Sunday. To make it worse a table of staff came back with drinks a couple of minutes after this. Sadly, they are all too often let down by their staff and 'variable schedule'.

Always friendly, always helpful, they do not mind children, great beer, good food and the only issue that stops me giving it 10/10 is the parking which is due to the location and popularity.

Large Pub/Restaurant which although situated back from busy road is set in woodland with a large green common. Watchout for the cycleway as you enter the car park. Picturesque setting with old fashioned ,low ceilinged, beamed interior. T Taylors Landlord and Ringway Bitter were on pump.More choice would have made this place near perfect. Food menu looked reasonably priced. Well worth a visit on a sunny afternoon,but I think a lot of other people will have the same idea
