This porkpie is the best with really chunks of pork in it very tasty.
Not the 'finest'
Pastry thick and soggy. Meat full of fat and gristle.

It is now very difficult to buy a good Melton Mowbray type pork pie, unless you go to Melton Mowbray, even when buying online from there, by the time they arrive the pastry has become soggy and the jelly soft, this pie was none of these, excellent.
A real quality pie!
Great crunchy pastry without being too rich, delicious mildly seasoned meat. There is a touch of jelly, a little more might have made a 5* rating. Definitely, one I would buy again though.
There’s much to be said for original recipes …
Not bad but years ago my mum used to buy family-sized pork pies from Tesco, with plenty of meat, lots of tasty meat jelly and the hot water pastry was delicious, not overcooked and not too much pastry. Our dad loved them, as did us children. The pies were very filling, very tasty and moist. Can’t you please ask your current bakers to look up some of the old fashioned recipes for these pies and use them, they really were good, and not a bit was left over, and I mean not a bit! Come on Tesco, help us out here, please!
Not bad but that isn't saying much.....
The pastry was nice and the filling not too bad, although a bit bland and under seasoned, but what, oh what has happened to the jelly filling with pork pies the last ten years or so.....the meat filling always seems to be sitting in a vacuum in modern pork pies, huge gaps and no jelly, what's going on? I would love someone to explain where all the jelly goes these days with pork pies. Might be time to start to try and make my own.
OK but no flavour
Not a bad effort but not ultimate. Pastry was fine but filling rather bland and tasteless, maybe more seasoning - will stick with D&M.
Not “Ultimate” by a long shot
Positives - Tastes great and pastry was lovely and crisp. Negatives - meat inside was both grey and pink which was off putting and I had the biggest piece of gristle. I think if you want something as Ultimate, it has to be a lot better than this.
Absolutely delicious unfortunately we only ordered one, will not make that mistake nect time, can't recommend enough
Best Pork Pie I've ever eaten.
