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…

New waitress is fantastic, roast dinner was delicious and the kids enjoyed it too. Only thing I would say is that the apple crumble wasn’t crumble - it was powdery and not very tasty and the pork belly was a little dry but everything else was spot on. Will definitely be coming back.

We had a lovely meal here. The serving staff were very attentive without being in your face and when not at the table were still keeping a watchful eye. Very good value for money. Only criticisms was my potatoes bravado were not spicy enough but that’s my personal preference, maybe ask customer if they would like it spicy or not. 10/10

Had a lovely couple of hours on your Prosecco dinner offer, prosecco served was good and free flowing. The salmon Nicose salad we chose big, tasty and filling. Service was really attentive and welcoming. Lovely, lovely evening.

Parking can be a problem, yes the place was busy but not at capacity so I can’t imagine what it would like, The staff were friendly and professional but had a habit to stand chatting behind the bar. Overall the food was really nice and we enjoyed our dining experience.

My only slight criticism was that we didn’t know if it was waitress service or order at the bar. After waiting 20minutes we presumed it was service at the bar but clarification would have been easier. We then had to ask for everything- more drinks, the bill, nothing was offered. Food was lovely however and I would visit again

Extremely expensive and for this reason we won't be dining here again. Such a shame really as it's only across the road from where we live and it is a lovely pub with nice staff.
