Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

This looks like a field mushroom to me, but someone more experienced might be certain

Welcome to UK Fungi!

It superficially looks like an Agaricus species but these all have a ring AFAIK. It's possible the ring has come off. If you read through some of the other recent posts before posting, you'll see what information we need to get anywhere with an ID
Cutting in half along the stem is important if it is an Agaricus (to look for colour changes) - and see if any of them have a ring.
