Thick pastry with poor filling
Looks good on the outside but was basically a thick pastry shell with a small quantity of really poor filling. We left most of it and doubled up on pudding. Appalling quality for "Tesco Finest"
Tje worst pie ever
This as a Tesco finest product was the worst thing I ever brought from Tesco or add a, I would complain about it if it was in the basics selection . The pie I had only had 3 1/2 inch cubes of chicken absolutely no gravy to mention , it was a mess of indescribable items in a 1/2 inch of pastry, the normal one they do at £2.00 cheaper has definitely got more veg / good meat and a good gravy , this was apauling and it was 3 of them obe 2 days for a function that were purchased so there's not just a problem with the one . It was a total disgrace.
Out for the birds
Bought today from our local store. The filling was okay, about 113 grams of chicken/bacon/veg/sauce (not much for two to share and very tasteless!) the rest was pastry (nearly 400 grams) which will be put out for the birds tomorrow and I am sure they will love it. Very disappointing and certainly not a 'Finest' Tesco meal. Definitely won't be buying this product again.
Awful, hardly any filling (a blessing!)
Horrible. Pastry thick, doughy, somewhere between flaky and suet pastry. The filling, which took some finding, was a funny greyish brown colour. Bacon was chewy and dark brown(? What was it?) and the gravy was sparse and brownish, did not taste either like chicken OR bacon. We were trying to work out, and thought maybe it was a generic gravy which goes in all their pies - chicken, beef, lamb, you name it. But the lack of filling was a bit of a blessing really. This is their finest? Heaven help those who buy the ordinary ones.
To much pastry
Filling was very tasty but not enough and way to much pastry. Was really disappointed by it.
Very disappointing, increase amount of filling
Very disappointing. Actual pie (contents) nothing like shown on box. Hardly two tablespoons of filling in whole pie and little or no smoked bacon flavour!
Definitely not "Finest"
Sadly the ratio of pastry to filling was dreadful; far too much pastry and not enough filling. Definitely not "Finest"
Do not bother buying
Would not bother ordering again. Pastry hard and filling nothing to write home about. If this is the finest range I would hate to taste the economy one. Do not bother buying.
Mediocre pastry with little filling.
Based on ingredients list, chicken and bacon represent less than 30% of the pie’s weight – 350g of 500g is unexceptional pastry! Increasingly finding Tesco “Finest” products are middling at best. Not worthy of premium pricing.
Like school dinners gone wrong!
Absolute disappointment and virtually inedible. Cardboard like pastry and no flavour whatsoever. It ruined my evening. Like school dinners gone wrong!
