Potato doesn’t brown like the picture suggests. The bacon pieces are few and far between, and when you actually fork a piece, turn out to have a spammy taste. The potato is bland and uninteresting, given little flavour by the butter that smothers it. Filling, but not fabulous value for money. As already mentioned, bacon… [Read More]
At first sight, this looks promising, and looks as though it really could be the fish and chip shop experience from the comfort of one’s own home. In anticipation I sprinkled salt, added vinegar and squirted ketchup to accompany what was, I hope, going to be a nice meal. The mushy peas are pretty good,… [Read More]
At 89p, very cheap. Impressive what you can get! The sausages have a nice Cumberland flavour, though are gritty in places. They’re quite generously sized, given the cost of the meal. The potato is surprisingly buttery and creamy, though the appearance and texture is very manufactured. What lets the meal down is, surprisingly, the onion… [Read More]
Tasty, succulent beef, although the pieces are meagre in size and there aren’t many of them. I also found myself chewing on a huge piece of gristle, which wasn’t a nice surprise. The carrots and crisp enough and sweet, very nice. I found the dumplings to be quite inconsistent – soggy to the point of… [Read More]
Too salty. Unpleasant, overly dark flavour. Lots of potato, so quite filling, but ultimately skimping on the meat and veg.
Nice parsley flavours in the creamy sauce, and the fish is tasty but turns slightly chewy in the microwave. It’s worth noting that the fish portions in here are meagre in size! The cheap cheddar cheese (try saying that over and over again really fast!) they’ve topped it with is welcome but seems like a… [Read More]
A surprisingly cheesy sauce, given this is Weight Watchers. Quite nice. Not much of a mushroom flavour, and the potato wedges are a bit dry. Not bad for £1-£1.50, don’t pay anything more.
Nice, creamy mashed potato, generously sized sausages, and a tasty, subtle onion gravy. The sausages aren’t gritty at all, or bready, or overly soft. They have a nice firmness and meatiness, and a pleasant Lincolnshere sausage flavour. Only £1.69! Very good value.
Disappointed that there wasn’t a microwave option. But, I suppose it was all for the best- the resulting roast potatoes are crispy, flavoursome and complement the meal well. There are a lot of potatoes, more so than it first appears, so this is quite a filling meal. The chicken breast is a nice size and… [Read More]
Wow, these sausages are bready. I dread to think how much meat is in them. The mash is sticky and flavourless. There is hardly any gravy, so this part was hard to review, but it has a nice onion flavour. Finally, the portion size is tiny- this is no more than a snack for adults,… [Read More]
