About The Lexden Crown

At The Lexden Crown you will find the perfect blend of a traditional English pub atmosphere and contemporary bistro dining seven days a week.

The Lexden Crown has a long and colourful history having been a beerhouse since 1851 with the original building dating back to the 1600’s. An unexploded artillery shell sat unnoticed in the bar for six years and even that failed to deter the shy but persistent ghost that is said to walk the across the bar on Saturday evenings…

We went mid-week on the first week of opening after Covid-19 rules were lifted. It was very quiet in the pub but obviously footfall is down at the moment. Will go again. Very friendly staff.

In response to the feedback following our visit for Sunday lunch on 8th March. The lamb was just fat and inedible the waiting staff only asked was everything ok with the meal when they cleared the plates away. When my husband asked to speak to someone the girl said she would get someone but after waiting a few minutes we left after I paid the bill. We paid the bill in full but will think twice about going back due to the meat and the staff being totally uninterested in the customers. We have visited you on numerous occasions .

As already expressed with stars, we had a really excellent lunch (must add we left completely empty plates each course!) with friendly and prompt service. Certainly going again.

The main meals / sweets were all of good quality and a decent portion. Although having to pay around £3 extra for peas / carrots etc. with salmon is not acceptable. All courses should come with mash / chips and vegetables as standard, as you get with fish, chips and peas. Vegetables should not be extra. At around 9 pm the heating seemed to go off and we were all very cold and left by around 9.45 due to this. We were not offered coffee after the meal which was very surprising. However, the staff were very attentive and polite.
