Score   9.0/10

Bruce   Hand raised good looking pie but a bit on the small size. Crispy, crunchy pastry but a little dry. The meat was very compact, very tasty and nice spices and lots of afterburn. Fresh and I like it.

Score   8.0/10

Fred   Good looking pie. Filling tightly packed and looks difficult to accommodate the much of the tasty jelly with a coarse and even tastier meat. Pastry seems a bit dry. It is almost an excellent pie.  Slight adjustments could turn it into a prize winner (Fetchers Opinion).

Score   9.0/10
