There once was a time when food in pubs was served up in a similar way to food at home; on nice, circular plates with knifes and forks, and maybe the occasional spoon.
Unfortunately, that time has now passed, and while a little bit of creativity from pubs with their food offerings ought to be encouraged, there is definitely a list of vessels that ought to never be used to present food for human consumption.
From the slightly quirky to the downright bizarre, here are 11 ways you really shouldn't be serving food in your pub in 2017, courtesy of @WeWantPlates.
1. Beer cans filled with gravy
There are so many questions...
2. Chips in dustbins
See also: mini chip fryers, shopping trolleys and ramekins.
3. Breakfast in a jam jar
It's just not very appetising, is it?
4. 'Home-grown' battered prawns
Someone took 'surf and turf' a bit too literally.
5. Half a haggis
Lets just hope nobody is playing God Save The Queen in this pub.
6. Bathtub toast
7. Garden trowels of mushrooms
A true interpretation of field to fork.
8. 'Skewered' chicken
Not the kind of thing you'd want to be messing around with after a few pints.
9. Bacon on a washing line
10. Ashtray dessert
Is that even hygienic?
11. On an ordinary plate
Because who on earth would want that?
