Oh dear, absolutely awful. Pastry thick, hard and inedible. Beef (hardly steak) very tough and the gravy tasteless.
If this is Tesco's 'Finest'...
Absolutely awful. Far too much crust and pastry, especially around the rim which I pretty much had to chisel away from the tin foil carton it was so hard. The filling wasn't terrible but there was not nearly enough of it. Hugely disappointing; I wouldn't buy it again at half the price.
One Word .... DISGUSTING I've NEVER eaten a pie so horrible! EVER!
Unpleasant taste to the meat and sauce
We usually get the steak and ale pie but as this wasn't available we went for this one but it really wasn't very nice, won't be buying again
Pastry is thicker than it used to be and stodgy
This used to be a nice tasty pie but the last few times I've bought it, I've noticed the pastry appears thicker and stodgy, sticking to the foil casing after it's cooked. I gave it one more try last week but found it worse than ever so I won't be buying it again.

Pie was awful. Dry, meat was tough and not a great taste :(
Thick pastry, minimal filling
OK, but not for a Finest product. The pastry is nice and fluffy but much too thick and there is not enough filling. Charge a little extra and fill it properly please.
Well I thought it was great unlike everyone else😀
Perhaps I was a lucky one, looking at all the other reviews, but the pie had plenty of meat, thick tasty gravy and lovely pastry. The pastry was maybe a little thick, but better than it being thin and dried out. Was a nice flaky pastry with a tasty topping, almost cheesy. The whole reason for having a pie is to have a decent amount of pastry otherwise just have meat and gravy on its own . I will definitely buy again.

Given this pie as an alternative for click and collect. Have to agree with other people’s comments. Not a good pie pastry to thick and meat tough. Will not buy again
Would never recommend, awful!
Gravy? what gravy??. This pie was dreadful, tough meat, no gravy, and pastry that was far too thick ( probably how it weighed 500g)!
