This lamb leg was terrible. It was as tough as old boots and I ended up stewing it. My husband said it was like mutton. A very expensive mistake.


5 stars

Loads of meat, fed six hungry people and some left for the freezer. Absolutely no complaints and happy that it's British.

Care re click and collect

1 stars

I had a click and collect order last week (18/7) and had ordered a leg of lamb.I note it has 6+ days. Stupidly I didn't check the date on it when I got home. A few days later I was going to cook it but realised the use by date was 19/7. I'm guessing that I should have checked the date when I got home but wrongly assumed that it would be fresh for 6 days. A real shame as usually lovely lamb!

Not a nice leg of lamb

5 stars

Perfect! People need to use their common sense and realise that around Easter a very large percentage of lamb comes down New Zealand to meet demand. Tesco labels may have been incorrect but they were pre-occupied with feeding people in the U.K. through a global pandemic

Dry as a bone

1 stars

Followed the cooking instructions and the lamb was so overdone it was dry with no juices. Not what I was expecting and at that price feel truly disappointed with a spoilt Easter meal.

Great value

5 stars

First time I'd bought this whole leg of lamb and was definitely not disappointed. It cooked beautifully, carved like a dream and tasted wonderful for our Easter Sunday evening meal. Will certainly order again.

Don’t buy

Absolutely disappointed with this product. Brought this item a few day’s ago with the date on the packaging being 14th April. Once purchased was refrigerated straight away. Once opened today (11th April) to prep easter lunch and the meat is off. An awful smell came from the meat as soon as the packaging was opened. This should not have happened. I am now u able to return the store due to the time of year.
