    Lovely restaurant and excellent service. One disappointment was that my lasagne was, at best, tepid and tasteless. My other half enjoyed his choice of Hunter’s Chicken.

    Very crowded and staff very busy covering all tables. Chicken and sea bass meals were good, the lamb dish a little less so. Apple pie was well received, but apple and blackberry crumbles had been left too long in the microwave and my spoonful of crumble was more like a sprinkling. We did not consider it good value for the bill of £138.

    Sometimes in the past the food and Service at the Cowherds has been disappointing, But today they have really upped their game. The food was very good and the service by our waitress Yasmin was excellent.

    We come here once a month for Sunday lunch with our Son when we visit him a Southampton Uni and we are so glad we found it. Lovely place with fabulous staff. Our waitress was Claire again today and she is friendly, helpful and fun. See you next month :)

    Very good food. I had steak and chips and then the brownie. My friend had fish and chips and the Black Forest chocolate pot. The service was a little slow last night but the food so good it made up for it. The atmosphere was good. I do struggle with chairs that are not very comfy but other than that it was a lovely evening out.

    Light lunch, flavourless runny Tomato & Basil Soup. Looked like it came straight out of a tin, but cost £5.50’

    The Last few times we’ve come here they have run out of several dishes before 5pm. Food was ok, not amazing. Menu choice very limited due to dishes running out.

    The place was pretty quiet and the staff were pleasant however the plant based burger was awful. The rose wine was far too expensive and even the cuppachino was standard. I’ve had far better of all three at other places. It’s a shame as it used to be good

    The food was good. However we had prebooked for 8, 4 adults and 4 children. They did not have any high chairs available and so we asked to switch to an empty booth table to make it easier for the kids without the use of high chairs and were told we weren’t allowed as the table was meant for 6 but we only had 4 adults and the children were all under 3. We had to make a big fuss until the eventually found some high chairs. I found our waitress rude and everything we asked for was an issue after that, we’ve never normally encountered rude staff at the cowherds so this was a surprise and we had friends who had never been before and quite frankly it was embarrassing to have brought them somewhere were we were treated with such intolerance. Taking children out is hard enough without staff making things more difficult.
