Tim   Small pie, fresh crunchy pastry, good even jelly,pink meat well filled. Although it was a well made pie, probably mass produced?, it lacked seasoning and no afterburn, but a reasonable effort.

Score   6.0/10

Howard   A pie for the ladies! Good thin crusty pastry, well packed with meat, plenty of jelly. The meat had a good pork taste but lacked seasoning.

Score   8.0/10 

Bruce   A party size looking pie, golden brown well glazed pastry. Fresh crunchy crispy pastry, loads of delicious jelly. Tasty succulent meat but needed more spice. I really like it

Score   8.5/10

Mark   Dainty pie, fresh as a daisy. Thin crispy pastry, lovely colour to it. Packed to the rafters with juicy succulent meat, lovely texture, very tasty, any gaps were filled with lovely tasty jelly. Slight afterburn but could have done with more spice.

Score   9.0/10
