Default Things found in bins, crocks and jars at pubs & bars

Before it closed, my favorite pub used to keep a jar of pickled eggs, a jar of pickled sausages and a jar of pickled hocks on the bar. All homemade ... I still crave the stuff.
Other places I've been to might have a nut heater for peanuts or cashews.

What other non-restaurant type Pub Food have you seen or had ... whether in the States & Canada, Europe, Australia or anywhere else?

As you have listed pickled eggs, sausages, hocks but also pickled hot peppers. Their's was all homemade also.
I can't remember the name of the place, out in Silverdale, Washington before they built the Trident Base. It was gone when I got stationed there 11 years later. They had a a mall and a everything then.

A big plus to a young single sailor at the time was befriending the twin sisters that worked there!!!

I frequented a bar in college that had a couple bottles of tequila with snakes in them. That was pretty weird...never got the nerve to order a shot though

Oh man, +1 to that, Henry.
Never seen it at the pub but I love smoked eels. Smoked fish in general but smoked eel is one of my favorites. A big thing at Christmas time with my mom's side of the family (East Prussians er, ah, German). We don't get it in oil but just as you would smoked fish.
Hard to find now so everyone gets an "eel ration" at Christmas when the smoked plate comes out.
Going to the pub and having a boomer of stout and a plate of smoked eel sounds wonderful right now.

I stole a pickled hot asparagus from a jar at a homebrew party last May. I'm pretty sure was the at FSR402's club kegerator.

Awesome stuff! I like asparagus and was really intrigued. I keep forgetting that it's something I want to make myself when asparagus goes on sale.

I just picked up about 4 pounds of asparagus stems at a market in Dearborn for .50cents a pound. I think I'm going to give the hot pickled asparagus a try.
Maybe they'll be my Fourth of July pickles.

As far as eating asparagus fresh, the stems seem much less bitter than the florette/tip. Hopefully these will be worth the work fine as pickles. Couldn't resist at .50cent/lb.
