A Warm & Crispy Welcome to you, Pork Scratching Lover.
This site is about Pork Scratchings.
Pork Scratchings, Crackling, Rinds, whatever you want to call them. They have a few different names depending on where in the world you find them, but none of this matters, because we call them Hairy Bars Snacks.
Hairy Bar Snacks is our nickname for pork scratchings. We may have been a little drunk when we thought that this name was a good idea, just like most good ideas. The pub sells loads of different snacks. These snacks are always found behind the bar. The snacks we like best have are a little bit hairy. So, logically, they must be called hairy bar snacks.
Anyway, this site has sections for pork scratching reviews, news, bag pictures, real images of real scratchings and even a flipping shop. And because we eat pork scratchings at the pub, we decided that a small expansion into pub reviews wouldn't hurt.
The blog/news section is an irregularly updated section with all the latest from the glamorous world of pork scratchings. But due to the paucity of hairy news, there may also be a few drinking-related posts. Please sign up to the newsletter if you want to be informed of anything you may be interested in.
We're trying to fill the site with as much information as we can find out, but would like to take this opportunity to ask for your help. If you find anything that might be of interest to us, if you stumble across a new bag, find a bag on holiday, why not contact us and let us know.
