The name and ingredients of the ploughman's lunch are meant to evoke a bygone era, when a ploughman's wife would have packed his lunch to take with him to the field so that he would have something quick and easy to eat when he wanted to take a well-deserved lunch break.

It would have included of one or two thick pieces of cheese (usually Cheddar, Stilton, or other local cheese), an apple, crusty bap or chunk of bread and butter. He probably had a flask of tea to wash it all down.

In Britain, a Ploughman's Lunch is a popular pub meal. Those simple ingredients are now often accompanied by a mixed green salad, sliced cold ham, chutney, such as Branston pickle and pickled onions. Other popular additions include: pork pie, pickled beetroot, piccalilli, coleslaw, hard boiled eggs, celery and pâté. Served with a pint of ale or cider.
