My husband had chicken and mushroom with garlic and herb mash and creamed leeks. I had steak ale and onion with mustard mash and peas. The steak pie had very little meat which was not at all tender, we also had a couple of drinks. During the night both my husband and myself suffered with chronic indigestion and abdominal pains. We will not be eating pie and mash at the Crown again. In our opinion it would be better to have a varied menu not just pie and mash. I would recommend the Crown at Trunch for drinks but not for eating.
