Consistently good larder staple during Christmas & Easter holidays.
from Anonymous on 27/04/2019
Great to have as a standby in the fridge for breakfast
/lunch/supper when you have a houseful. Never disappoints- Always be certain though, to wrap well after first opening to prolong freshness & keep it deliciously moist. Have bought both large ham on the bone & half ham off the bone. I’d say that there was less wastage & it was better value to buy an off the bone ham.
Always good easy & efficient delivery. Staff are v accommodating & always there to help with any delivery queries.

A lovely ham, moist and positive tasting. Just right for an Easter weekend house party of 11: outdoor lunches and long walk sandwiches. It arrived on time and beautifully packed in a box with ice packs. We also had this ham for the last three Christmas house parties.
My Favourite Ham
from John Lidd on 09/04/2019
we have bought one every Christmas for a number of years as well as for big family get-togethers. It has always performed very highly. we once had one which was thin on marmalade cover but my wife made that good with some of her own,

This product never arrived. Country Victualler should have a tracking mechanism available via their couriers. I feel I should be credited if not the full amount at least something to recompense for the inconvenience caused.
Excellent as always

This mini ham was quite fatty on the outside but I quite like that and it is easily taken off.
One of the best hams I have tasted.
from Irene Hogan on 24/11/2018
Always buy Dukes Hill hams and my favourite is Shropshire black. However I think that is eclipsed by your Alderton ham. It is a full textured ham ,soft on the pallet but my goodness that flavour is to die for. I think we will have to buy a full size one when this Christmas season is over and get slicing at home.
The best ham you are every likely to eat
from Nicky Cheltenham on 03/09/2018
I have been ordering this ham for many years and it never fails to delight myself and my family. I could not recommend it any higher.
Not opened yet but have had one before and hopefully this will be just as good

Your delivery entry details on line are not easy tand i had no idea whether you had received my date request. This ham arrived nearly a week earlier than i thought i had requested it and on a day when it was lucky i was in. I have had this problem before when arranging delivery with you and i feel with something perishable (and with the weather we have recently been having) it is important that arranging delivery day is very simple and it is clearly marked on the confirmation of order so that it can be re-arranged if need b!.
Dissapointing Ham tough to chew, no sign of marmalade on the skin and the ham is tasteless.
from Anonymous on 09/06/2018
It has usually been good in the past and I keep reordering.

A very good ham. One which I have been buying for a very long time. I love the deep flavours of the pork as well as the marmalade glaze. It is not sweet just perfectly balanced in flavour. However this time the ham is not as moist as on previous occasions, so feels slightly dry in ones mouth. I am being picky but that is because it has been five star before
Highly Rated
from Jane O'Sullivan on 03/04/2018
Delicious ham, had before and will have again.
from Anonymous on 02/04/2018
Always excellent.
A half one for Christmas and a Mini for Easter or other hols. are just right and any left over freezes v. well.
from Anonymous on 02/04/2018
Always outstanding hams, excellent service too!
from Anonymous on 02/04/2018
I prefer the smaller size. I ordered two mini hams as can easily freeze one if I don't need it.
Excellent taste
from Anonymous on 02/04/2018
Product is consistently delicious. I'd only like to have received some re-heating instructions (had to look on the internet) - please either include in your shipping pack or at least have on your website!
A very good ham

Last Christmas we experienced a blip with the Alderton Ham, but year's is back to your usual high standard.
A ham that is "not just for Christmas"
from Anonymous on 21/12/2017
We've been eating Alderton ham for 15 years. A distinctive taste of proper ham with a little added extra. A good buy throughout the year
Very highly
from Anonymous on 24/11/2017
We have ordered our ham for christmas delivery, but if it's as good as previous years it will be delicious. l would not order from anyone else! All our visitors always comment on how good it is.

We always have this lovely ham at Christmas in particular - I know it says "Mini" ham, but it`s a really good size, and freezes well. I could quite happili LIVE on it!!!

delivered on time and lovely flavour
Alderton Hams are superb
from Anonymous on 23/08/2017
We've been buying your fabulous marmalade glazed ham for over 10 years now. At Christmas & Easter it is a staple in our house. Have bought it whole both on and off bone, and half a ham both on and off bone - this is the first time I bought a mini ham. By all standards it was very, very good, but seemed slightly less succulent to me than the bigger cuts. Hence only 4* rating. Having said that, it is wonderful value for money, lots of meals with it cold. Tip top ham sandwiches for a long train journey. Last remains used in a ham and mushroom lasagne, and a fresh pea and ham soup. And our Border Terrier thinks it is the bees knees if a scrap falls on the floor accidentally!
Truly excellent ham
from Anonymous on 19/07/2017
Haven't received product yet as have ordered for August but have had these hams loads of times before and they can't be beaten.
Very best ham for taste and consistency
from Anonymous on 13/07/2017
We first came across this ham in Fortnum & Mason many years ago. We used to buy slices but an awful lot depended on the skill (or lack of it) of the assistant. It's very good to be able to buy a mini ham and slice it myself for the freezer.
The best.

Gorgeous Ham
from Anonymous on 28/05/2017
I have bought this Ham in the "mini Ham" version several time and I'm really impressed with the taste and moistness, I will for sure be buying the whole Ham on the bone for my Xmas table.
5 out of 5
from Anonymous on 02/05/2017
This was an excellent product ,We had friends over for lunch and it fed 8adults and three children easily .everyone remarked how good it was .we still had enough left for a few sandwiches later in the week I'm glad I bought two mini hams as we are having our 8 grandchildren and their parents for lunch this Sunday the second ham will be one of the items on the buffet table well flavoured ,not too salty and very moist .I would recommend this to my friends and family .
It was acceptable and reasonably moist.

Having bought several whole Alderton hams over the past 6-8 years, both boned and with bone in the worst we had was a very dry boned ham for Christmas 2016. The cut of the mini-ham that we ate was quite a bit coarser but this could have been due to where it was cut from the leg or possibly because of a different breed of pig.
from Anonymous on 18/04/2017
I've tried a number of the Country Victualler Hams over the years - all delicious but I think the Alderton is the best. Delicious, not too salty, moist and very generous portions at exceptional price. Can't fault them and will definitely keep going back for more!
Lovely flavour and texture

Always arrives in peak condition. Well packed and protected - couldn't ask for better.

5 stars every time
from Anonymous on 25/10/2016
We have been buying your whole hams for years. They are unbeatable for taste and value. It is always a treat when it arrives, we eat it for a few days and then freeze the rest in slices for sandwiches or chunks for pies / pasta dishes etc. We then cook up the bone with peas and we make the best pea and ham soup ever. If you use it all, it works out cheaper than supermarket ham yet the quality is out of this world. Many friends have tasted it and ordered it for themselves. Wouldn't buy ham from anywhere else. Thank you!
Succulent and very tasty
from Anonymous on 11/10/2016
We had a mini ham version of this and it was very generous in size and made quite a few meals and sandwiches, it was really tasty and beautifully moist all the way through, the Alderton glaze provided a subtle bitter/sweet addition to the taste 10/10 will be buying the bone in full size for family Xmas this year
