    I love these! Flaky, buttery crust, tender meat, great flavors for the filling… five stars.

  2. Stacy

    These are the bomb!!! I hope they will carry them year round as they were out of stock today!!! Flaky buttery crust and delicious gravy with meat and veggies inside. Comfort food at its best!

    So disappointed in this product, we purchased 4 of them and there was ‘NO MEAT” in 3 of them and the 4th one had 2 small very rubbery pieces of some kind of meat, It was Terrible..Really screwed up our dinner…

  4. Unsatisfied

    Extremely disappointed. There is no meat at all in these pies. If there is, it’s unrecognizable. I found one 1/4 inch cube piece of unknown material. Maybe a potato? Such a waste of time and money. Please get a new recipe and a new process for preparing this product. Trader Joe’s has not done well on this one.

  5. Cathy

    Wow. I bought this product twice. Each time, there were only 3 tiny pieces of meat and 2 pieces of potato. Gravy clinging to the sides. Crust is great but it just doesn’t cut it. Still hungry.

    Deeelish! I cook it a bit longer to make sure crust is nice and done. British pub quality pies.

    Like the others, I’ve noted that it was light on the meat. Still, I found them to be delicious. Knocked off one star for the price. I’ll continue to buy them, but probably won’t make a habit of eating them regularly.

    I must have gotten the exception package. People have written about delicious, protein packed pies but I just finished on, almost finished one, about five minutes ago. I’ve had pub pies like this in England as well as in English style pubs in America. This isn’t it! This is what I got when I opened it up to eat. A hot pie with some gravy and veg along with, no exaggeration here, 4 tiny pieces of fatty, chewy meat. Chewy is being kind. 4 pieces of meat no bigger than the tip of my pinky finger! The second pie is in the barrel as it’s too far a trip to make just to return an expensive dog chew toy to the Somerville store! I wanted to start experimenting with different foods at Trader Joe’s but this put the kybosh to that. Back to WF again. I heartily do not recommend these pies if your looking for a good amount of tasty and tender beef. These could have been so much better!

    I had I hopes but like many of the other people who gave their own reviews I was disappointed. Nearly no meat. My mother had one skimpy little piece. I had about 4 tiny pieces that could fit in a one teaspoon spoon. Pastry was good but that’s pretty much all you get. Lots of pastry. The flavor is good but they could have made this so much better. Felt ripped off by the picture on the box. Not even close. I won’t be getting any more and I may decide to go back there and ask for a regular refund.

    Ignore the whiners, this is a great product . Last time at Joe’s could not find them, Hopefully a supply chain issue and not due to Tree Huggers,
