Tesco’s Finest meal deal for two allows shoppers to pick up a main, side, pudding, and choice of wine or soft drink for £12.

Sadly, the price of the meal deal was hiked from £10 last year although Tesco isn’t the only supermarket to do this as M&S and Co-op also hiked the price of their respective meal deals.

Is the Tesco £12 Finest meal deal good value?

As we mentioned when the price initially changed, Tesco’s Finest meal deal for two still works out cheaper than buying the items separately despite the higher price (although the amount you'll save has obviously fallen).

For example, if you bought beef lasagne, chunky chips, lemon meringue cheesecake slices and a bottle of wine, it would cost £19.35, so you would save over £7.

After this date, the options may change.

It’s worth flagging you’ll need a Clubcard to get this deal for £12.

There are nine mains available (down from 10) with vegetable moussaka and chicken in cabernet sauvignon among the new additions, while chicken tagine and sausage cassoulet are no longer available.
