“Yes, you wowed me!!”

Written on: 18/07/2013 by Lornanoonefan (1 review written)

Donald Russell products are consistently fantastic value for money. Orders are taken efficiently and kindly, and are delivered within days, in pristine condition; beautifully and carefully packed. Products are of a very high standard and taste like you would get in a Michelin Star Restaurant. A little more expensive, but my goodness you get what you pay for - in spades! I would recommend (and have done so many times) Donald Russell products to everyone who loves good food and who will… Read Full Review

“Working for Donald Russell Kintore”

Written on: 16/07/2013

On the internet, I have found that Donald Russell are looking for packers, so I decided to apply for the job. I had an interview after which it looked like I got the job, mainly because I used to be their employee and I know what the job was all about. Unfortunately, today I received a message that I will not work for them again because I do not have all the skills required. I think that is very funny because Donald Russell did not mention these "required skills" on the website and at the… Read Full Review

“Great quality but overpriced”

Written on: 10/07/2013

I ordered a pack which I saw on offer in a magazine. It contained Sirloin, Pave and Ribeye steaks. Yes it was great steak, among the best I have tasted, but not unequivocally the best as they claim and their prices suggest. Maybe I was unlucky or they have to comprise quality on these offer packs. I usually buy quality Sirloin from my local butcher and its approx 28 pounds per kilo, Donald Russell charges approx twice that. So is the quality of Donald Russell worth 2x the price of the excellent… Read Full Review

“'Toad in the Hole”

Written on: 30/04/2013 by Billdd (1 review written)

I am a customer of Donald Russell and I find the meat such as Lamb Short Saddle absolutely superb. Not so the Toad in the Hole. I followed the cooking directions,(40-45 mins) had to add 20 mins as the Yorkshire Pudding was still uncooked, eventually I had to serve it. The top of the Yorkshire was cooked but the base was still sloppy and the Sausages were barely cooked. Tastless, truly the worst meal I have tasted in a long while… Read Full Review

“great products,excellent service”

Written on: 19/04/2013

I have been a customer for many years and have been delighted first with the great quality and flavour of the products and secondly the service that I have received. The rib eye steak cannot be beaten anywhere on the quality and taste,I have tried many others but always come back to donnald russel for something special. The service I have received whenever I have telephoned has been excellent,and always very helpful even when I have phoned to change my order,as I have recently done, there has… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/04/2013

We hav been dealing with donald russell for anumber of years. The service and all of the products, except one, are rated as second to none! The one exception is pork sausages, we find the skin much too hard and very difficult to remove wihout taking a lot of the meat with it.hopefully this can be improved upon in future, if so, then we can give a100% marks to all products .

“The Highest Quality Every Time”

Written on: 11/04/2013

Prior to our moving into our second retirement and our present address, some five years ago, we had been consistently enjoying your very high quality meat. Whilst your product range has increased significantly since those days, the quality has remained at the highest level.We have treated ourselves to a very special large beef joint with which to celebrate a family Christmas, having enjoyed (much more frequently) a whole range of products,from humble (?) sausage to beefburgers and "mini cuts"… Read Full Review

“customer service”

Written on: 23/03/2013

Having been a customer for a year or so, I was disappointed with the level of service i recieved when a delivery was delivered to the wrong address. Contacted Donald Russell at 6pm after wating in all day, to be advised that i signed for the parcel or maybe it was a neighbour.....please check with neigbours. After over an hour i was advised that the delivery was in fact in my trailer; which i didnt have, nor did any my neighbours. 24 hours later the parcel that had been in the trailer all… Read Full Review

They would have been fine and wouldn't have defrosted. If they had have done Donald Russell would have replaced them

Bopeep1's Comment

Written on: 19/01/2014

We have had the same problem recently. We had food delivered not frozen and the woman in customer service was quite rude when we told her we had to chuck the food away and that we were unhappy as it was for christmas (arrived 4 days before christmas). She, in a very exasperated voice, exclaimed that they would be have been fine!

“Donald Russell”

Written on: 27/10/2011

Ordered their value starter pack and like the other reviewer expected excellence but was met with average quality that I could get at any supermarket. In addition I struggled with their customer service dept. before eventually getting some steaks replaced. They were certainly not forthcoming with a refund as their ads suggest. Bottom line, average quality, outrageous price, poor customer service. Go to your local butcher, mine charges £46.00 per kg for fillet which is of an outstanding… Read Full Review

“Well what can I say? I was expecting the meat to be...”

Written on: 08/11/2010

Well what can I say? I was expecting the meat to be gorgeous and it wasn't... it wasn't BAD it was just reasonable. Reasonable meat at a reasonable price would be ok. But the pricing is MASSIVE - simply not worth it.

The steak selection pack is a joke, it wouldn't feed my rabbit. The free range chicken is reasonable.

Wanted my dinner party to be amazing - it was average… Read Full Review
