The Common, Southampton, Hampshire, SO15 7NN
Built in 1762 on the site of the old cowherd's house, we were renamed the Southampton Arms for a brief period in 1857 before reverting back to the Cowherds 14 years later. We have maintained the name since, paying note to our heritage and our location - Southampton Common, one of the UK's most important wildlife sites.
A country pub oozing rural charm and rustic character, our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar.
Whether you are planning dinner with friends or Sunday lunch with family, book a table online and enjoy some quality time with those you love the most.
The Cowherds has open views over Southampton Common, a haven for wildlife, and is close to the university. A walk around Southampton's Old Town will follow the footsteps of William the Conqueror, Henry V and the Pilgrim Fathers.
There’s always a great reason to visit your local Vintage Inn. Throughout the week we run Fixed Price Lunch and Dinner menus, and at the weekend you can enjoy special prices on sparkling wine on Fizz Friday or a delicious 3-course Steak Supper on Saturday. For a limited time only, we’re also running a Valentine's menu - the perfect treat for your loved ones.
Monday to Friday 11am to 11pm Saturday 11am to 11pm Sundays 11am to 10.30pm
