    By the time those joints are cooked they`ll just about feed 2 people and nowhere near the number of people they state. The price of this poor offering is ridiculous, almost 80 quid for a total of 4 kg uncooked meat and a few sausages, bacon and stuffing.

    Last date for delivery Friday 20th so Q ask you wait till after the weekend which is the day prior Christmas Eve.
    Surely the latest date for a frozen food delivery should be at least the end of the previous week, to allow for any problems.

    its a whole lot of sausages, sausage meat and bacon all cheap fillers and I agree the "joint's are teeny tiny. you could go to Iceland/Aldi/ lidl and get good prices and better quality.

    For the last few years, we've had frozen three-bird roasts, from Iceland, Tesco or Lidl. They've been really tasty, and no waste. Usually about 10, though last year we got one earlier in the season, and it was 5.00. From Iceland, I think.

    They're cheap enough to try, before the big day, just in case they're not to your taste.

    Last year we had a 12 crown from Lidl. Deliciously succulent and it did quite a few meals. And the best bit, apart from the price, was that we actually had it to eat on Christmas Day, because there was no opportunity for an online order to go awry.

    Even if people can’t get out to the shops, they could always order for home delivery from one of the supermarkets, but it strikes me that quite a lot of customer believe that QVC is the only “shop” out there.

    I'd rather support my local butchers than pay for this exorbitant QVC 'meat hamper' which, like the Green Seasons one, has a high probability of not turning up.
