Sorry, but NO!!
Really nothing to write home about. To describe it as "Finest" is really unfair, it is relatively average minced lamb with a hint of red wine, overlain by tasteless mashed potato. This will probably offend no one, but is instantly forgettable with the caveat of DO NOT buy again.
Ok but lose the garlic
Tried this out, prior to ordering for my elderly Dad. It was okay, I think the meat content could be increased a tad. But with the addition of grated cheese on top and some veg it is overall a decent meal. One criticism though, too heavy handed with the herbs, and overall heavy on garlic, which has no place in shepherds pie. This comes from a garlic lover.
Tiny and topping is an awful flavour. Will not bu

Will never buy again
Hubby likes shepherds pie but not this one ended up putting most in bin, said didn’t know what was on top of potato but tasted awful, wish I had read the reviews first, have just removed it from next delivery.
Disappointed- herb pie!
This should be 2.5 stars. Really disappointed with Tesco Finest ranges this year, tasteless. All we could taste was herbs!!! Hardly any meat. I added gravy to it to try and give it something more. It’s a shame as the ingredients looked good and well thought out. Will not be buying again.
I tried the cottage pie version of this and wasn't overly impressed as no flavor and little meat, but thought would give shepherds pie a go. Really glad I did, the flavor was amazing and tasted as good as restaurant quality. Lots of nice meaty lamb too! Not sure how this has got bad reviews.
To be recommended
Super. Tasty without being too salt. Ideal for one but still enough To share if a surprise visitor arrived
Disappointing, Tastes nothing like shepherds pie.
Very disappointed with this. It’s supposed to be minced lamb in a lamb gravy, which I always think of as a comfort food. Misleading description. There was no taste of lamb. Overpowering taste from the Red wine, red-current jelly and herbs. I can still taste the sauce 2 hours later and I’m not enjoying it! Meat was quite sloppy. I wouldn’t have known what meat it was if I’d been eating this blindfolded. I’ll not be ordering again.
Plenty of lamb, can taste the butter in the potato
Plenty of lamb, can taste the butter in the potato. Like the herbs. Overall really tasty.
Lamb was tasty, good seasoning and contrary to other reviews I didn’t find sloppy at all! Lovely meal, one of my tesco favourites
