About The Lexden Crown
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 said to walk the bar on Saturday evenings…
Lovely first experience here. Good customer service .
We had a nice family meal in a very pleasant environment. Being able to park easily was definitely a bonus, as was being able to book instantly on line.
Went for the earlybird offer which was fantastic and meal was excelent with first class service.
Very helpful staff
Very pleasant visit.
Fantastic service and a delicious meal had by all 😊
Delightful, friendly and helpful staff.
Excellent Sunday Roast, best in Colchester. Staff always attentive and keen to make sure your party is ok. Regularly pop in for either a meal or a drink.
We had a lovely evening and meal at Lexden Crown. Welcome atmosphere, prompt service and 3 very good courses at a reasonable price. Have visited before and certainly will again.
This was our first time visiting the Lexden Crown. We found the staff friendly and Dodd great. Will definitely be visiting again.
Always great for lunch, excellent service and well priced tasty food, no wonder it was so busy!
Meal was good but service lacked sufficient training to provide necessary cutlery etc. It was also a little slow.
Our food wasn't too bad and came out in good time but the service was terrible! Our waitress was not good. She she took our drinks order I asked if there was a blush wine, and her response was 'I don't k ow what you're talking about' so I adviced her to maybe ask someone who did know. She came back and confirmed there was a blush wine, no apology. My partner then asked what beers were available, her response was 'erm Peroni, stuff on tap, I dunno!' Well as a waitress I find it shocking she doesn't k ow what drinks are at the bar. We were dining with my 8 month old in a high chair and my 3 year old and when the food was brought out, she asked us, what shall I do with these warm plates because of your kids. Well i don't really like to be made to feel like my children are an inconvenience to warm plates!? Maybe again, as a waitress, notice there are small children around and place the plates away from them and just warn us the plates are warm? Maybe if the service was better I would have given the food a higher rating as it wasn't too bad at all but my experience in all wasn't great.
Table was really sticky . One of the waitresses seemed in a real panic which ruined the atmosphere of the restaurant. The food was distinctly average and they ran out of lots of their specials !
We were a bit anxious about going back due to a bad experience last time we visited. However we need not have worried. The staff were amazing and attentive. The food was fabulous and good value for money and we had a lovely evening. We are VIP card holders and have also booked for New Years Eve as we have been several times before. Thank you for a lovely evening.
Wonderful friendly service. The food was incredible, reasonably priced and a good choice of meals plus a specials board. The steak was the best my husband has eaten, cooked to perfection. Lovely atmosphere we will definitely return & highly recommend.
Very nice but drinks seemed a little overpriced.
friendly. good service and well prepared meeal - check out the black board specials.
