Meat was all gristle
Read the Reviews and Avoid
Avoid. Thought we would give it a try as sounded good. Shame I hadn't read reviews. Tasted really very strange. Meat chewy and gristly. Pastry soggy. Altogether really not nice. Managed about a quarter of it before deciding to give up. Put it out for the fox that night. He enjoyed it !! Perhaps Ginsters should stick to Cornish pasties..but then I am married to a Cornishman and they are NOT Cornish pasties either !
These sounded tasty but they were the same as the regular Ginster's with small pieces of chewy beef instead of minced beef. Disappointed so will not buy again.
Pretty grim to be honest. I was going to write, never has death seemed so welcome, but that seemed a bit extreme.
I've got 1 left - going cheap.
Have to agree with all the other 1 star reviews. Wish i had read them before i bought a couple of the things. Called them things coz i don't know what the hell is in them. I can tell you that they taste awful though. As has been said by others they are as awful as the filling looks.
Missing gravy and doesn't taste like anything!
I tried this product and immediately hated it because it was falsely advertised. I ate into it and there wasn't any gravy in it at all and couldn't taste the ale and it was very gristly!
Simply awful. A very weird taste that I can’t even describe. Never again. Ginsters I’m very disappointed.
Bitter and tough
I love Ginsters, especially their pasties. I was excited to see this Steak and Ale variety and couldn't wait to taste it. It was not very nice at all - sadly the meat was tough, the gravy was "bitter" (maybe the ale or mustard?) but the worst part was the pastry. It had a strangely sponge cake texture and no flavour. Very disappointing and will not buy again. Sorry Ginsters!
Pastry was nice heated pasty in the oven. The filling is horrible, After one mouthful neither my husband or myself could bear Any more, worst pasty we have ever eaten. One star for pastry.
Disappointing. Tasteless - tough meat and gristle
The Ginsters Large Cornish Pasty is always a good standby for a quick meal. So the premium Steak & Ale version was expected to be a taste buds' delight. A big disappointment - tasteless - and the meat was tough with bits of gristle.
