    To drift the thread a little I once had a work colleague who thought that buying a round of packets of crisps, whether anyone wanted any or not, got him out of buying a proper round. Bloody annoying but not much we could do as he was more useful alive than dead, especially where juicy gossip was concerned.

    Pickled eggs seemed to be a feature in pubs years ago but never saw anyone buying them.
    Went on a pub crawl maybe 1971 around Dundee pubs and my mate invited his stepfather Norrie.He must have been in his late 60,s and he turned up with a big block of cheddar cheese and a lethal knife to cut it with.Apparently this was a common practice he said for pub crawls in his youth as it kept you sober. We as usual got hammered.Cheese or no cheese. happy days

    Places round Bristol and wider area Pickled Egg in a bag of salt and vinegar crisps, maybe elsewhere in Country as well. As for C&O rolls in black country. The Vine is about the only one I had in that neck of the woods. Round here if they are offering then at the bar they are now ~£2.50-£3.00 mark few do/did cheap ones still but most not known for real ale from memory.

    As a better snack to standard crisps Snyder's Pretzels Jalapeno https://www.amazon.co.uk/slp/snyders...335epw7gf7y4ec

    I've seen that but can't vouch for the flavour of crisps! It was a long time ago, probably the 1970s. I remember going to the long gone Plough cider house at Elmley Castle. It was midday in the week and the florid faced locals were food matching cheddar cheese and raw onion with the home brewed cider. The onion was peeled and they were eating it like an apple.

    Definitely, I quite often have a pickled egg with a bag of crisps. Doesn't have to be salt & vinegar of course, but that seems to be the best combination. Didn't realise that was a Bristol thing!

    And as oldboots said, the seafood man used to be a regular fixture, although pretty much always in The Kings Head, I think I only ever saw him anywhere else once or twice. A straightforward prawns with marie rose sauce was generally my preferred option.

    Cheese & Onion crisps for me, I had an egg in a bag during the No38 pub crawl we did in a pub with about 10 varieties of pickled eggs, possibly the Cock Tavern in Hackney?
