Better than M & S's Cottage Pie

5 stars

I find this project better than Marks and Spencer cottage pie, yes it needs a little salt but that is preference more than anything else.

Don’t waste your money

2 stars

This cottage pie had zero flavour and very little meat. I’ve had better tasting cheap microwave cottage pies. Don’t waste your money

One of the better supermarket cottage pies.

5 stars

Has a high meat content (compared to other brands) with a nice peppery rich flavour. As with most ready meals nowadays it needs a little added salt to perk it up. Blame the anti salt brigade!

Heating instructions are useless

1 stars

Do not follow heating instructions as they are not correct. Having followed heating instructions for a fan assisted oven it was cold in the centre. Had to continue to heat this product for a further for a further 20mins.

Went in the bin

1 stars

Absolutely awful, hardly any taste at all apart from being hot and very peppery. Was expecting something decent for the extortionate cost. Never again!

No flavour.

2 stars

No taste to what little meat and too much flavourless potato .

I have been buying these for some years. However I

3 stars

I have been buying these for some years. However I had one tonight 2nd November 2019 and it was two thirds potato and not much mince beef. Will be making my own in future

Wouldn't bother with this again

1 stars

It was bad for a product in the Finest range. Full of grisly fat and connective tissue. Completely ruined my favourite meal. It's what I'd expect from a product in the Value range. A complete waste of money.

Poor value

2 stars

Too much potato and not enough mince. Poor value for money

Change recipe or cook !

2 stars

This pie used to be excellent. I had one about two weeks ago; there was a thin layer of meat less than one third the depth, the remainder being rather tasteless mash. The meat layer was flavourless. Who ever made this needs cooking lessons. I threw most of it out.
