Some interesting background history on The Cowherds pub!

The cowherd managed the animals on Southampton Common. Edward Dyett moved into the cowherd’s house when he got the job in 1774. He starting selling beer on the side and the venture was so profitable that in 1789, the house became a pub. The Cowherds is still a popular pub today!
