Great value turkey, very tasty and moist

5 stars

Excellent fresh turkey used on Boxing Day. Followed the instructions and the turkey was very tasty and beautifully moist. One of the best turkey’s I’ve had and not at all pricey compared to some other retailers. I will definitely be ordering one of these again. Everyone commented.

Do not buy a Turkey crown from Tesco

3 stars

Although this turkey was very nice, tender and moist, there was unfortunately an awful lot of waste. Previous turkey crowns I have bought have had little to no waste and I will not buy a crown from Tesco again back to the butchers where I have bought before and there has been no bones and no waste all meat

Not as advertised, do not buy

1 stars

Opened it to start cooking for Christmas dinner. THIS WAS NOT A TURKEY CROWN. It has wings attached which made up 35% of the weight. You have to read the small print to see that it had wings. This was misleading advertising as most people would have expected a proper turkey crown.

Rotten turkey! Stay away!

1 stars

It was rotten by the time we opened it on Christmas Day, not shrink wrapped. And was meant to last till Boxing Day! Very disappointed!

What a con.

2 stars

I did not rate the quality of this Turkey crown and have just discovered that it is not a true turkey crown. It has wings hidden underneath. In tiny letters at the very bottom of the label it says “A turkey crown with backbone and prime wings”. The other writing in large letters says BASTED TURKEY CROWN twice. I feel conned. The only waste left on a turkey crown is usually the breast bone.
