Easy to cook resulting in an really tasty meal.
Good quality lamb. Superb texture and flavour. Succulence personified.
My favourite cut of lamb- mouth wateringly tasty
Small size so did not consider good value for money
Donald Russell's prices are quite high compared with other Food sites, but their quality is exceptional.
