Not available when I order on-line

5 stars

I want to order this for my neighbour as he thinks it is really good, but it has never been available when I am placing my order online


5 stars

Tried this for first time last night - huge success - clean plates all round - delicious and serving plenty for 2 - would recommend. Charlie's meals may be a bit more expensive but having tried several now they defo worth the extra price

Best ready meal we've had in years

5 stars

Fed up of cooking every single meal during lockdown, my husband and I tried this ready meal. We are usually disappointed by ready meals finding them tasteless and lacking in the meat department, but this was absolutely delicious! We will definitely be buying more of the Charlie Bigham's range.

Outstanding pasta meal

5 stars

A super meal. The meatballs are of top quality and taste, with a special added spicy flavouring, and the pasta with sauce equally flavoursome in a slightly different way. Plenty of food for two people, and my favourite CB meal.


5 stars

Recommended by a friend, bought this on offer, my son loves meatballs, this was delicious we thoroughly enjoyed sharing it. My son said I should write a review he's 7! He said no offence mummy but it's better than yours and I agree. I don't do ready meals but I will now. Superb thank you!

Strong, slightly tart tomato flavour.

3 stars

There was nothing wrong with this meal. My personal taste though for me the sauce was too strong tomato flavour. If you like strong, slightly tart, tomato flavour then you'll love this. I also added extra cheese...grated parmisan.

Great dish but only buy if on offer

5 stars

Tastes really nice but unless you've small appetites, it is more for 1 person or you will need to bulk it out with side dishes. Unless its on offer, you can make it yourself more cheaply.

Delicious Meatball Al Forno
