Our great friend Rupert Culme-Seymour, Regional Sales Director at Heineken and general
pub-industry legend, has kindly sent in his thoughts on our nation’s old-favourite dish, the Ploughman’s…
How’s your Ploughman’s?
Do you ever wish for a really great plate of chutney, freshly baked bread, a good hunk of cheddar, some pickled onions and a cracking pint of cask ale for lunch? I bet you it’s cheaper than a latte & a Panini…Yes it should be fresh and delicious and it should be served to you with a cheery smile – this is what I’m after…surely it can’t be hard??? How about crisp beer battered fish & thick cut chips, homemade tartar sauce and a wedge of lemon…enjoyed with a glass of crisp sauvignon blanc! …Yum….and where should you go for this…yup your local pub which may well be closer to where you live than a lifeless national convenient super market (how many people smile in these places???)…. isles of convenience that can only be taken to your own home and consumed whilst watching some average talent show??
Why not be inconvenient and go to your local pub, enjoy rubbing shoulders with other people, have a drink in a glass and put a smile on your face!
