Queensberry Hunt for John Lewis White Soup/Pasta Deep Plates, Dia.26cm, Set of 4
size unexpectedly variable
I like this range (although I don't like the new name). This particular item (26cm soup/pasta plate) seems to vary in size. I purchased 8; the smallest was 7mm smaller in diameter than the largest, and half an ounce lighter. As noted in another review, it's rather obvious when stacked, or when handling the plates, but once they are on the table, it doesn't much matter, although there is a visible difference in the outer rim shape.

Very good purchase
Good everyday use plates, but also nice enough for special occasions. Fit well into dishwasher. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

Everyday useage and not so every day feel
My wife and I recently ordered an entire set of Queensbury Hunt bone china and asked John Lewis to ship it out to Denmark for our usage there.
The set included the White soup/pasta deep plate as you see above.
During the ordering it is of course very difficult to select your daily use cutlery without actually feeling it your hands. Having used it, we can both say that it is a very high quality and durable service that is a clean white tone. The remarkable thing about the Queensbury Hunt service is that it is durable yet extremely light. We have run the white soup/pasta deep plates through our dishwasher a few times now and they fit well into a standard size dishwasher – without any adjustment of the dishwasher tray.
The beauty of the set is that you can dress your table in any colour and the set also matches any cutlery that you may have currently.
Upon delivery there were some minor scuffs on the bottom rim of the plates, however nothing highly noticeable neither did it affect the daily use of the plates. The one compliant I do have is that the driver left the set in our driveway (which is somewhat normal in Denmark) however they did not allow us to sign for the package nor ring the door bell which is a little strange. However it must be noted that the service is packed well and we did not find any damage due to shipment. All in all it is a very price competitive service so we cannot complain.
The white soup/pasta deep plates are great for everyday use and have a good size which is useable and also provides a large enough serving so that one could feel quite well fed.
If you do select it, I don’t think you will be disappointed – we certainly are not and we use this an everyday family service.

Cheap in price, expensive in looks
When received, I wasn't so sure its the right product for me. But once I held a piece in my hand, its very light, no rough edges ,pure white in colour and nicely glazed. The depth of the deep plates is just right for the amount of soup ,before the hearty main course and desserts. Could be used daily and good enough for dinner parties.
Am considering buying the rest of the sets for my collection.

Really elegant, stylish bowls/deep plates at a great value price. Perfect for presenting a warming stew as if you were on Masterchef! Makes food look better... and if we're honest we all eat with our eyes just a little bit!

Look lovely, but not amazingly well made for the cost - not uniform and do not stack that well. Have had much cheaper plates which were / are better made.
Not overly impressed, but look lovely on table, however.

Excellent pasta plates
These pasta plates are excellent - beautiful bone china - they are very easy to wash by hand and also fit in the dinner plate section of the dishwasher.
We've been experimenting with a celebrity chef's Italian pasta recipes and wanted deep pasta plates to accommodate the lovely sauces - these fit the bill perfectly. They are lovely for home made soup too.
When they arrived we worried that they might be a bit small but actually they are plenty big enough for most portion sizes.
We're so impressed we're considering replacing our current crockery with more items from the John Lewis White Bone China range.
Excellent product - would definitely recommend.
