The disgruntled shopper took to Mumsnet and asked others if they would feel let down by the selection.

She said: “Would you be disappointed with this as your valentines ‘cheap’ meal?

“When you ask for steak, asparagus and escalopes and come back with this instead.

“Think the main is horrendous.”

Fellow Mumsnet users were quick to comment on the £20 romantic dinner.

One person said: “Not worth 20 quid, in my opinion. No veggies there?” and another added: “Not worth £20.”

A third said: “I would be outraged. It would ruin my year.”

Another said: “It wouldn’t massively appeal to me as a meal, and those potatoes aren’t the greatest (much nicer done yourself and very easy).”

While another said: “I would be disappointed that £20 is considered a cheap meal from a supermarket.”

But some totally disagreed and thought the selection made for a great dinner.

One person said: “It’s a perfectly nice meal with some veg added.

“It isn’t steak as you appear to have asked for, but I certainly wouldn’t say it was a rubbish meal!”

Another said: “You said it was your Valentine’s cheap meal so as such it looks lovely. If you want steak and asparagus just buy that.”

A third said: “I think that’s lovely and would happily eat it all except the cheesecake. If they’d run out of steak it’s fair enough.”

Another said: “[My husband and daughter] had that chicken last night and both really enjoyed it.

“The steak, even the sirloin, didn’t look overly great to be honest.”
