PUB HERITAGE

Pork scratching's are the holy grail of pub snacks, teaming up perfectly with your favourite tipple whatever that may be! 

Michelin starred chefs, including Paul Ainsworth, have shared their love for the humble pork scratching “I think they’re one of those perfect snacks, especially if you’re matching with beer – which is what pubs are known for”.

Ainsworth goes on to say that the fizz of chilled lager, IPAs and ales work wonderfully with the lovely fatty richness from a scratching, whilst citrusy and slightly acidic Pilsners and the hoppy nature of IPA compliment the saltiness of a scratching, making them quite moreish”.

With the carbonation of a Prosecco or Champagne working equally well and the best wine pairing has a level of acidity and fruity flavours to cut through the fattiness of the snack. Thirsty and hungry anyone!?

CAMRA Heritage Pub Directory

Here at Midland Snacks, we feel as much at home down the pub as we do in our own front rooms and we absolutely love a pub with heritage and a story to tell. The pub in which we were lucky enough to photograph our imagery is a historical pub in Northern Ireland, McConville’s Bar, as was the Mandeville Arms. The pub is listed in CAMRA’s directory of historical pubs, compiled by CAMRA’s Pub Heritage Group. In their photo gallery you can even spot the snug corner we used with the chequered table for some of our photos. If your local pub has a historical story to tell and is not on the directory, contact CAMRA directly to help gain your local an historical listing.
