Is this the best Melton Mowbray / pork pie?
Is it the best Melton Mowbray pork pie? Probably not but compared to most pork pies that are mass produced and chilled it's pretty good. The level of seasoning varies, the last one was fairly potent in the pepper stakes, but still enjoyayable. At the end of the day it's a pork pie with some jelly/juices, some fat to keep the mix moist, plenty of meat and, if removed from the fridge and unwrapped well in advance of eating, the pastry texture and overall flavour is good. Theres better, but then go to your local artisan butcher to shop.

Worse pork pie ever had
Sent as a substitute for Pork Farms pork pie (although I didn't ask for one) Found the pastry soggy, not bothered about jelly, I usually take that out anyway. The meat was grey and the worst texture ever. It was full of gristle and lumps of something I can't describe, I had one bite and had to spit it out. Threw the rest away. Not something I would recommend.
Disappointing. Tasty but too much gristle - lumps of it. Pastry soggy after one day.
Avoid these, the meat, pastry and jelly is awful!!
Very poor, I will have to pay for the hugely better large ones and throw some away - rather than eat these again
Best pork pie

Best Pork Pie of any supermarket.
A really tasty Pork Pie, very close to the best we have ever had, even at much higher cost. Pastry is always firm and crisp and no sign of any gristle or other nastiest seen in other makes of pie. We no longer buy any other type of supermarket pork pies. Only down side is that Tesco hardly ever seem to have any available for delivery - no doubt getting bought off the shelves as fast as they arrive - order more Tesco, Please!!
my son very particular re a pork pie -pastry has to be crispy! DICKINSON is the best pork pie Tesco stock
