  2. A 4 bird roast a real treat for Christmas Day. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jan 2022

    Delivered on time for Christmas with cooking instructions.
    Cooked it on Christmas Day it was a very tender and succulent roast enjoyed hot and then cold again on Boxing Day. Well worth the money and will definitely have one of these for again.I think I had the 3 bird roast last year which was good but this one was even better.

  3. Great service, tasty roast 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Dec 2021

    Really appreciated the excellent website, ordering process and regular updates. Extremely impressed with the sustainable delivery packaging (cardboard and wool insulation). However, it was very lucky I was at home on delivery (was just about to get in the car when the DHL van pulled up) as it came a day early with no notification of a change in delivery date. Fantastic card detailing on how to cook and rest, and it looked beautiful. My only quibble would be that the netting that covered the entire thing made it surprisingly difficult to carve, and perhaps because we had a relatively big one (3.6kg) it was tricky to keep together on carving as there were many smaller bits of meat within that fell apart quite easily. It might be helpful to add tips on carving onto the very useful cooking card. But overall we really enjoyed it, and it was just as good on re-heating for roast number two (as Covid meant we had fewer guests on Christmas day than expected)!

  4. Fabulous four bird roast 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Dec 2021

    I was anxious about ordering on line from an unknown company’, especially as Christmas dinner for the family was dependent on me! After last year it seemed so important to get it right this year! I needn’t have worried! Oliver in the chat room was reassuring. DHL delivered earlier on the given day than expected but not a problem as I was in. The instructions were clear and the quality of them was brilliant. The meat cooked exactly as per the instructions and carved easily. Everyone enjoyed guessing which birds were in the roast and suggestions became more hilarious as alcohol consumption increased! All in all a success and I would use this company again! Thankyou!

  5. OUTSTANDING ! 5 Star Review

    Contact from ordering to delivery of Bird in a Bird. Any queries were dealt with immediately. Cooking instructions on a lovely card too. Now the serious bit ..... it was outstanding, everyone commented on it tastes like turkey use to taste. We ordered a 4 bird roast and the next week i will be not welded to the kitchen sink. There is lots to eat. The presentation was excellent. Thank you Very Much.

    Glad I found James Alexander Foods. Customer service was great when I needed to amend my order. Delivery was done as scheduled and the packaging was very good. The cooking instructions were really helpful and our roast was perfect. We’ll definitely be back.

  8. Magnificent! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Dec 2020

    I have cooked 3 or 4 bird roasts on several occasions and this is by far the best I have had. It arrived on time, still very cool in the insulated packaging. Cooking was easy, timing accurate and all components of the roast were tender, moist and excellent flavours without being over-seasoned. The stuffing was lovely, pure pork with no filling and, again, delicately seasoned. I would definitely buy this again.
    Also, I had to phone you on a couple of occasions and you could not have been more helpful.

  9. Best Christmas dinner ever! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Dec 2020

    The parcel arrived when it was supposed to, packaged beautifully. The meat was seasoned a little already, I added garlic and fennel butter. I used a temperature probe in the oven and this got to temperature at 2 hours, same as the instructions given by James Alexander said. The meat was for 7-8 people, we had 10 and with loads of veg etc it was still too much. Not complaining as there’s plenty for sandwiches. The meat inside was soft and tender, the turkey a little tough on the outside, as expected for for turkey! I left to sit for 2 hrs.

4 Bird Roast

Free Shipping

Product Description

The Ultimate Award-Winning Joint – boneless, easy to carve, full of flavour and guaranteed to impress.

Our famous hand prepared 4 bird roasts are made to order from Turkey, Pheasant, Chicken and Duck, expertly combined together so that each bird cooks the next one inside and the juices combine exquisitely.

Our free-range birds are reared using traditional methods, roaming and foraging as they please. Our focus on provenance and welfare ensures the highest-quality Easter meat for your festive dinner table.

Luxury award-winning gluten free pork sausage stuffing is then added to ensure exquisite taste and melt-in-the-mouth texture.  Lastly, the joint is dressed with award-winning Cumbrian pancetta and a couple of sprigs of thyme to maintain the succulent flavours inside and to add visual “wow” effect.

A Great Taste Award winner worthy of the prize.

After the main feast any that is left over also tastes very good cold, so you can look forward to another treat if you don’t finish it in the first sitting.

How to Cook your Bird Roast

  • Bring the joint up to room temperature.        
  • Pre-heat your oven to 190°c/375° (170°c or gas mark 5 for fan assisted ovens)
  • Calculate the cooking time allowing 40 minutes per kg, then add 15-20 minutes to overall cooking time
  • Remove the packaging and place in a large roasting tray
  • Season well
  • Cover with a loose tent of foil
  • Place in the middle of your pre-heated oven
  • Roast for the calculated time basting every 30 to 40 minutes
  • Remove the foil tent 30 minutes before the end of the cooking time to brown and crisp the skin
  • Check that it is cooked by inserting a skewer – the juices should run clear. If they are a little pink give them 15 minutes more and check again
  • Transfer to a serving platter and tightly cover in the foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes before carving

PLEASE NOTE: All cooking appliances vary. This is a guide only.


All Bird Roasts are dispatched fresh with 10 days shelf life on the product, but can be frozen upon arrival, and then consumed within 6 months. For more information, please call us on: 020 7788 6602 or email:
