    All there, but looks like it was plated up during an earthquake 
  • Looks pretty good, potentially home made Yorkshire’s too?
  • Decent plate of food.

    Sadly the contents were put in a bag for a good shake and mix before hand.
  • No idea how to present a plate, all the fundamentals are there though. 8/10.

    Potatoes look very good (pitiful amount there though), not sure what the dark strips of what looks like lamb doner are though, but gives me an idea for next year.

    Top notch. Feeling peckish.
    More spuds wouldn't go amiss but you'd need Alan Partridge's big-plate to get anything more on there.
  • Did they run out of gravy? 
  • Not bad apart from the birds mess 
  • Not bad at all. But sprouts are the devil's bollocks and have no place in civilised society.
  • All there, but looks like it was plated up during an earthquake

  • Was they having a sparrow for Christmas dinner instead of a turkey 
  • There’s a lot going on here.  The clump of whatever ‘white/bread sauce’ in the bottom right hand corner is like the red cabbage in exhibit B, you’re drawn too it 
  • Stevie Wonder levels of plating up, but the base ingredients look decent enough. 

    Not sure whether the rice pudding goes though....

    Ok. Food looks good but Chef looks rushed...or two bottles of sherry down when he/she plated it up!
  • It's certainly the best one on here. However I'm still trying to work out if that is a potatoe croquet next to the Yorkshire.
  • Almost perfect 
  • Presume the person putting it on the plate had been at the bucks fizz and baileys all morning?  

    Or it was Christmas Day at Michael J Fox's house? 

    Gets extra marks for the bread sauce though. 
  • No place for broccoli on a Christmas dinner
  • No organisation and while the ingredients are all there, doesn't look cohesive and that white sauce looks a bit like white coloured diarrhoea
  • 5/10.

    To much "stuff" and not enough meat.

    At least there was no Yorkshire puddings I suppose

  • It's a dizzying array of culinary messiness to confuse the palate as much as the eyes. I have scored highly out of a sense of pride the visually impaired member of the family seems to have vomited most of the meal on the plate

    Well, if was shop bought, it needs taking back
  • Looks like a decent, traditional meal to me - everything well-cooked but just lacking a little bit of flair. The veg isn't over or under cooked, but doesn't appear to have had anything done to it, such as honey-roasting the carrots. Looks like a good Yorkshire pud though.

    Presentation also lets it down slightly, chef is clearly not an Instagramer. Nothing to be ashamed of here though, a solid effort.
  • Deffo the best we’ve seen. Bet the table looked great. Presentation on the plate doesn’t disguise the fact that these ingredients look first class and home made. Bet there’s a great pile of turkey underneath everything else. 
  • The name did it for me although Barney is the more common version - the more unique (not weird) version is of course Barnie..
  • Can only presume the creator of this mess was Muhamed Ali. Would still eat tho.
  • Dreadful presentation.

    Yorkshire pudding again?  What is this with the Yorkshires, you people?

    Are those tinned carrots I see before me?
  • It’s a decent effort for 5 quid a serving in a Toby carvery 
  • Barnie Hurst with the plated on a boat entry was...


    4/20 - 6.40

  • And it was gorgeous. Best one for years. 👍
