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…

Had a lovely meal, but the hot pot was a disappointingly small portion of both hot pot and vegetables. I had to order a side portion of sweet potatoes to make the meal work. First time I've had an inadequate portion. It was a small portion compared with my wife's chicken breast meal.

Beer was flat, despite asking for a fresh pint multiple times the beer remind flat, service was disorganised had multiple members of staff asking us the same questions. It seemed as if staff weren’t assigned a specific area for them to focus on specifically.

Second visit in the last two weeks. Easy to pre-book table. The food was great and service excellent. I did find it a chilly on both occasions in the restaurant. Would recommend and I’m sure I’ll be back again soon.

Had to change from dining in to collection of Sunday lunch asy mother was unwell. The Manager was officious / rude and made me feel in the way while i was waiting to pick up the lunch. At the end I asked for some horseradish sauce and he loudly declared 3 times that I would normally have to pay for that! When I got the meals home there were loads of potatoes and pre formed stuffing blocks, some soggy veg, and NO Yorkshire puddings. Lastly I also asked if we could get into the restaurant with a wheelchair and he said they could help us get one in but there was no disabled loo. So overall I'd give the whole experience a very disappointing 2. And we won't be back. On the plus side the lady I spoke to to change my reservation to a collection was extremely pleasant and helpful.

Me and my friend came for a last minute roast last Sunday and it was amazing. It was my first time visiting and the service was friendly with a good choice of food at reasonable prices. The trio of meats were stunning and all homemade. Would definitely visit again!

Excellent food and service as usual. Particularly loved the special of ribs, fries and salad. Hope that becomes a regular choice!
