Product Description

  • Minced beef in a vegetable gravy topped with mashed potato and parsley breadcrumb.
  • Tender beef simmered with red wine and a kick of Dijon mustard for lots of rich, intense flavour. Classic dishes demand the best ingredients. Our cottage pie is made with British beef which is simmered with a full bodied red wine. British potatoes have just the right floury texture to make light, fluffy mash, which we enrich with cream and butter. A seasoned, toasted parlsey crumb gives a crispy finish.
  • Pack size: 800G

Weird after taste

2 stars

Weird after taste and mash bit soggy like Smash potato. This was a very strange tasting cottage pie - far from finest!

NO taste

1 stars

This literally has NO taste whatsoever. I can't even say it tastes of cardboard.

Cottage Pie, Tesco’s Finest! omg, disappointing [

1 stars

Cottage Pie, Tesco’s Finest! omg, disappointing [ element of shock perhaps] In an age where more and more people need something quick n easy having to eat this again… I’d go without Never again. 1 star, I don’t hate-it, I didn’t like-it either Really Tesco, you need to try harder… and create a dish to look forward too Quick, easy and tasty. Better with ingredients required The potato was just-about-ok. The [ looked like] mince and gravy, just not nice at all I’m not a cuisine connoisseur by any means… and will eat almost anything But not this Cottage Pie from TESCO’S Finest range!!

tato for everyone!

1 stars

litreally just all potato with a dash of mince.. its not even worthy of being called a cottage pie

Listed ingredients suggest flavour rich; it isn't!

2 stars

Far from being 'Finest' quality, with a "rich, intense flavour," this cottage pie is tasteless. Maybe it's to do with the use of vegetable rather than beef gravy, as well as cheese-paring when it came to condiment use. I could discern no red wine, Dijon mustard, onion and garlic or sea salt, that's for sure. I realise others may not want salt but, like soup, this sort of dish needs it during the cooking process.

Not enough beef.

3 stars

Not very meaty. Bought this as part of the dine in offer & was disappointed. The meat to potato quantity was about 15% meat and gravy 85%Mash. What meat there was was delicious & the same with the mash. Just waaay off with the ratios. Doesn't look like the picture on the packaging

Not finest quality at all poor effort

2 stars

We where not impressed and don’t think this should be in the finest range very poor effort by my favourite shop poor quality at best

Tasty & Good Size Portion

5 stars

Very tasty and good quality mince. No nasties to be found at all. Went well with the cabbage trio and a drop of instant gravy.


5 stars

Great quality, tasty meal with good portion size for 2.

Couldn't make this better at home

5 stars

It would be very difficult to make a cottage pie at home of this quality and taste excellent value especially as part of meal deal. I see a very low review score and suspect like many other meat products that are great but seem to get poor scores that there is some sort of vegan campaign going on with any meat based product reviews as the reviews are not fair and don't even make sense!
