I'm thinking of going to Lidl for the first time as everyone raves about it so much! Main worry is the quality of the meat and fish? Such low prices, I wonder where it's from? What are everyone's thoughts?

Honestly, go and judge for yourself. I find the quality to be fine, certainly no less than say tesco.

They do really good fake Oreos.

No. it's cheaper. but only cos you cant get everything you need.

and cheap is mo use when it's vile and you don't eat it or you have to bin after a day s it's gone off

Not my favourite goes off to quick. I prefer aldi if I am that way. Not enough selection or choice!

Meat has always been fine for me from lidl or Aldi. From other mumsnet threads it seems to depend on the branch. So if you have more than one near you and the first your try isn't great try the other branch.

We have three within 15minutes of us and they are all fine.

I do swap and change supermarkets though as get fed up of same old every week and can't always physically get to a supermarket.

Yes...we have swapped from Waitrose to Lidl for the majority and then a top up of things not available at Lidl.

We save £160 a month. I'm VERY picky about the quality of meat and was very cynical at first but it's fine

I do most of my weekly shop at Lidl, top up in Waitrose. I get most my meat from the butchers but the Italian cooked meats in Lidl are good.

Fish and meat not so good I think, but lots of other stuff is stellar. Veg excellent, really good Blood oranges at the moment, also dairy stuff like parmesan. Turkish yogurt fabulous. Aisle of surprise always a treat.
