Wild and Game pâté review

Every Sunday night, it's become a bit of a tradition that everyone here at The Madhouse tucks in to whatever is in the fridge. There may be leftovers to use up, or something special that was added to the shopping basket by someone the day before, but usually, we clear out all the odds and ends of salads, spreads and breads before starting a new week. We recently received some samples from Wild and Game, the not-for-profit business that aims to turn the UK into a nation of game lovers, which made a great addition to our platter.

Wild and Game was founded by Steven Frampton and Michael Cannon at the end of 2017. Its products are available from the company’s website via retail or wholesale, with the company aiming to supply pubs, restaurants, small shops and the general public. “Our products are supplied frozen and so are available all year round, not just in the game season,” says Steven. “We would love to see game such as pheasant eventually becoming a common sight in UK supermarkets.”

The first product that we tried was Pheasant, Pistachio and Port Pâté, which we smeared simply on bread. It has a rich, gamey flavour that the kids weren't sure about, but I enjoyed it. Looking at the ingredients list, it contains 20% Pheasant Meat and 19% Chicken Liver, with other ingredients including marjoram, thyme, parsley and onion powder.

The second product that we tried was Grouse, Brandy and Herb Pâté, which has an earthy, robust flavour. This one contains 26% Grouse Breast and 25% Chicken Liver, along with margarine, onion powder and a selection of herbs (parsley, marjoram, thyme, black pepper and game seasoning), as well as frozen garlic puree.

Wild and Game explain that their mission is to make game popular on British dinner tables all year round and, as it’s low-fat and readily available, it deserves to be used more widely. At Wild and Game, they have a focus on traditional dishes that people already love, so pâté seemed a perfect addition to their range.

Both products are available now via wholesale or retail from the company’s website. If you want something a bit different for Christmas, they're perfect.

Wild and Game’s product range is growing steadily. It currently includes sausage rolls, pasties, pies and sausages, with the new pâtés the latest products to be added to the list.

Disclosure : We received samples, in order to write an honest review.


  1. Probably much better for the environment to eat game for protein instead of farm animals.

  2. Looks yummy, i love pate, it rare i buy it though

  3. That's fascinating. It looks good, and I like the sound of what they're proposing, too.
