    Disagree. Very easy to beat a ploughman’s with pretty much anything else on the menu. ANYTHING.

    So 1970s
    That was my first thought.  I'm not saying the Ploughman's Lunch became extinct as Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2), topped the 1979 Christmas charts, but I do think of it as one of the very narrow range of pub lunch options available in those days.  I can't recall the last time I saw it on a menu.

    It seems it goes by the name of "sharing platter" these days.

    I've never tried piccalilli, is it more of an English thing?

    Looks rank.

    @Sporky Sure - don't even have to be deep fried. Just raw. And wriggling.

    I don't think I'd want to eat wriggly gherkins.

    Ploughman's lunch reminds me of my grandad, we'd always get one after he took us swimming at the weekends. Haven't had one in years but I quite like it.

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.
    Chips are "Plant-based" no matter how you cook them

    So many people don't realise that they were very serious /well regarded Session players ....the Whole Chas and Dave thing was a tongue in cheek joke they did initially but it developed a life of it's own.
    They played with Clapton, Albert Lee etc etc

    Indeed, one of the major breweries constructed the 'ploughmans' in the 1970s arcade time when they were trying to persuade more people to lunch in pubs. I can't remember which brewery after all thus time, but it's been "traditional" for over 50 years now so I guess it's true. Sadly the demise of pubs continues.

    On the contrary, I think just about everyone - at least the old soaks reading this forum - knows all about the history of Chas & Dave.

    Cheddar and Branston go together like peaches and cream imo. I have a cheese and pickle sarnie and it's like I'm transported back to 1977.. wonderful. A good ploughman's is also v.nice imo with a pint of Rattler.
