An element of our purchase smelt and tasted wrong. We immediately reported this to DR and, to their credit, they gave us a full refund without unreasonable quibble.
We were very surprised to be told by DR that it was normal for them to hold their products in deep freeze for up to two years...

Gorgeous piece of meat, really is top quality. Even comes with cooking and defrosting instructions. Really good!
Had it for my Xmas dinner it was amazing
The best meat we have tasted as lean as ever
one of the best roasts, loved by all the family, cooks to perfection, (especially on low temperature).
Was really lean and tasty. Will order again
Very tasty very good! Tender and juicy (Med. rare)
We were a bit concerned that this wouldn't be as tasty due to the lack of fat but this was not the case at all. Full of flavour and huge piece of meat that lasted for two nights for our family of 4.
still in freezer, but looking forward in anticipation.
This is great for Sunday Lunch always cook it low and slow comes out perfect every time and melts in the mouth.
Delicious. Plenty for 5 people with sandwiches later
Not used yet but I am sure it will come up to DR usual standards
Beautifully tender & lean. Easy to cook. Enjoyed by everyone. Quite honestly the best beef I buy comes from Donald Russell.
tasty sunday roast with lots of leftovers
Good but small for more than 4 people.
Delicious and very tender.
Tried it for the first time as a conventional roast in a hot oven. Very little fat so no shrinkage, but more tender than expected. I would recommend.
