This was delicious. Lovely & lean and made a great Sunday lunch!

A disappointment

1 stars

Looking forward to a roast lamb dinner, a rare treat. Sadly very disappointed. Very little meat on this, mostly sinew, fat and other inedible material. Would certainly not purchase again.

Brought this for myself and daughter but only enough meat for one the rest just bone


5 stars

When i can get it it is a great joint of meat . However twice now i have ordered this half leg and twice it has been substituted. First with a half shoulder which was good but not as good as a half leg. The second time by a rolled breast, which i have had before and found it to be a very fatty joint . Nowhere near as good as half leg. So i am disappointed as when i look on the website tonight it is still available.

good quality and tasty

4 stars

excellent quality, very tasty each time we have had it, do be aware that the size you receive and the price can vary greatly, although you are told this our last joint was huge and very costly.

Disappointing and not value for money

2 stars

Very disappointed with Tesco lamb recently, barely enough meat to serve 4, lots of knuckle, bone and fat so much so it's actually difficult to cut a slice of meat, certainly not value for money and what happened to the end bit of the leg you used to get?? Will not be buying any time soon.

Tasty Sunday lunch

Meat was rancid despite being in date.

1 stars

We opened this lamb to cook on Easter Sunday. It was rancid, there was a stench of sulphur as soon as it was opened.This was all despite it being two days before the use by date. Bitterly disappointing, and somewhat worrying.

Lean and tasty

5 stars

Enough fat on the outside to let it roast nicely but otherwise lean and succulent. Good smell and taste.

the pits

1 stars

Terrible New Zealand Lamb.When will Tesco realise there is only one area that produces top quality lamb and thats Wales.English Lamb is OK too but this Lamb even at half price is just not worth the money
