Rating (4/5) Where Did I Go Name:World Service Nottingham Address: Newdigate House, Castlegate, Nottingham, NG1 6AF…
I found the website very easy to navigate and find exactly what I was looking for. Along the navigation it had special offers and then was split into the types of meat IE Beef, Pork etc. It then had additional items if needed from the Delhi and then other options.
Placing my card details and address information was quick and took next to no time at all.
As it was mid month I didn’t need to place a large order, therefore I didn’t qualify for free shipping. If however you spend I believe over £75 then you do get free shipping.
I made my order of Westin Gourmet on the 11th of October which was a Saturday and the next available delivery slot was the following Wednesday, which I think was very quick.
I ordered the extra lean and it was below 5% fat, which is perfect as I sometimes aim to have slimming world meals which when using mince should be below 5% fat. It came packaged perfectly and looked as thought it had a lot of taste.
Fillet Steaks – x2 5-6oz
When I have received fillet from other companies in the past it always looked smaller than I was expecting. These two were a decent size but also have nice marbling on them, so they should taste very nice!
With Pork Loin I will usually buy a joint and cut it into steaks as I can have them whatever thickness I like, plus it often works out a bit cheaper as well! I would say I was a little disappointed with them as some to me were very thin. This wouldn’t however put me off from ordering from Westin Gourmet again, I might just take a look at what other pork they offer.
I love bacon….bacon…hmm bacon. I eat a decent amount of bacon as I really enjoy a mid-week and weekend breakfasts with bacon. I have tried this meat and it tasted really nice, it wasn’t too salty which I often experience with supermarket bacon.
It was a bit smaller than I expected but I think thats because its vacuum packed and more importantly not injected with water to make it look bigger. I am looking forward to trying to recipe with this chicken over the weekend!
Westin Gourmet certainly know how to impress me with chicken breasts! The box was large and had a good amount of breasts in them, but what I really liked was the size of them. They are nice and large and more importantly the same size, there is nothing worse than getting a pack of two breasts at the supermarket and one being much smaller!
I love duck, its got such a nice taste to it. These are of a good size and there is not too much skin on them. Now I know the skin is important as the fat will render out, however some I have gotten in the past just had too much where as these look perfect!
The entire order came to £45.80 with £4.95 shipping as I didn’t qualify for their free shipping, which I think is pretty damn good for what I got. Which when doing a rough calculation was cheaper by £15 than if I was to go to the supermarket, and it looks better quality!
Yes, I think Westin Gourmet not only offer great value for money but the quality of the meat is excellent. I do plan to order from other companies as well so I will be able to review them as well as compare their meats. Overall thought I am VERY happy with the order that I received and would recommend them.
I do hope this review has helped if you were thinking about ordering from Westin Gourmet and hopefully when I do receive another order in the future, ill review that one as well!
I have enjoyed cooking for some years now, its one of the only things that I can do that makes me relaxed and forget any worries I have. I love trying new foods and visiting restaurants. Other hobbies include writing, game development and work :)
