    Definitely the Cock Tavern, I remember that. They have a few strange varieties in there.

    Highly likely 'twas the Cock. They also had vegetarian port scratchings on our visit too.

    I had the yellow one but I suspect they all taste the same - vinegary
    egg


    Incidently when you order a Takehome Taproom from Roosters you get four
    different snacks as well as the beer, a quiz and some music choice by
    famous dikhead Pete Brown,

    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    They aren't your normal Booker Chef's Larder/Makro ones. Seen the posh ones ages ago round here as a Gloucestershire company. We did the maths when in a pub in Frome that was selling them, can't remember the difference between buying online for posh big jar against walking into my local Booker but there is as hell of a difference per egg.

    I too am quite partial to a pickled egg in a packet of crisps. The posh ones are in rice vinegar which is less acrid, if anyone cares - they have been at GBBF for quite a few years.

    I have come across a few pubs with home made ones, but don't ask me where!
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    I think pickled eggs were a very big East End thing. The most gastrofied pub I've seen them in is The Sutton Arms and I think the Southampton Arms sells them. They are standard fayre in fish 'n' chip shops here.
    I love eggs in all their forms and pickled things too. When I was a kid, I'd always sprinkle Sarson's on my fried eggs. I've never been tempted by a pickled egg, though I was never sure if they were pickled in vinegar or brine. If the former, aren't they incredibly rubbery?

    Yorkshire pubs tend to be quite generous with pub snacks, particularly on a Sunday. The best place I came across was The Shepherds Boy, Dewsbury. My daughter was having a riding lesson nearby and I'd snuck away for a swifty. The bar had several platters of pork pies, scotch eggs, black pudding and bread with 'mucky fat' (beef dripping, to non-Yorkshire folk). Marvellous.
