Howard   Interesting burnt offering with a toffee top which I am still trying to scrape off the back of my teeth! Plent of jelly, the meat was very finely ground, with little taste other than pepper. Didn't enjoy it.

Score   4.0/10

Bruce   Nice looking golden pie, well glazed. Ultra fresh, tasty pastry, plently of delicious jelly. Weird looking grey coloured meat, finely ground, bit still tasty. Load of afterburn. All in all, I really liked it.

Score   8.5/10

Tim   Well glazed pie if not slightly overcooked. On the cross-section, well filled with jelly in all the right places. Meat distintly grey looking, the pastry did stick to the roof of your mouth. The jelly was tastless, as was the meat apart from huge quantities of pepper. However because of the care & attention it had and the glazing, it had potential.

Score   6.0/10

Mark   Lovely tasty crispy pastry, spoit by a sticky glaze that I couldn't get off my teeth. Loads of jelly, full of meat with tasted like beef. Full of flavour & afterburn.

Score   7.5/10

Kevin   Good looking, shiny as a cricket ball, thin tasty pastry. Lots of jelly, very finely ground spicy meat. Fresh. A 60 year old recipe. Liked it.

Score   9.0/10
