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…
We had a lovely evening at The Lexden Crown. The food and staff were lovely. We were there to celebrate a friends birthday and the staff were all very helpful with making the evening special for her.
Great night out
Extremely efficient and friendly man who served us. Couldn’t ask for better. Food was great (turkey bbq wrap with fries). Only downside was it was cold in the restaurant but we were there for lunch and it’s an old building so it probably hadn’t warmed up yet! Thank you Crown, will be back again
Visited several times in the last 6 months or so and never been disappointed. Food is always great, very nice atmosphere and staff are genuinely very friendly, very efficient and very helpful. All round a very nice dining experience.
Love the special offers - we keep returning!
Really like this venue, friendly but professional, not rushed, good food at sensible price. would recommend anyone to try it. The restaurant fabric is of an older nature, broken into differing sections, so you can talk, get a 2 table, or grab an area for a group of people if you need.
Lovely Sunday lunch with the family!
Lovely food , good service....confusion with our booking as table wasn’t ready when we arrived
Amazing, friendly and fast service. The food was the best I've had in a long time and I'd definitely return. Probably the best food in Colchester!
Second time in a month I have lunched at the Lexden crown and both visits have been great, thanks.
Lovely evening, good choice of food and Cheerful staff
A good evening as usual
Great service, staff always pleasant and happy.
A lovely evening and delicious lamb shank .
A really friendly atmosphere, excellent service, a good choice of dishes on the menu (all those sampled between the 7 of us were pronounced very good), all in all a splendid experience.
We all really enjoyed our meal
Six were in my party. We enjoyed the meal and would come again. The only disappointment was the chicken curry. The meat was dry and the sauce watery. A shame as all else was fine.
Quick service, always some near by to attend to for any issues. Food was lovely! Will definitely be returning
It was very cold in pub & although food was very nice it was quite expensive for what it was.
Been here quite a few times over the years. Food adequate but nowhere near as good as it used to be (circa 2 or 3 yrs ago). Closest local so will prob go back as convenient and hope for an improvement one day. Great staff, good location.
Friendly and welcoming atmosphere, food food and if you haven’t tried the Apple Crumble... make sure you do! No complaints from our party of four. Will definitely be eating there again.
I booked a table for a group of ten people via your website, however when members of our group arrived it was found that your had only prepared a table for three. After this bad start things continued in the same vein as we waited for an hour and a half for our food, and one of our party was provided with no cutlery in which to eat dessert, leading to one of us having to go hunting for some. This is the second time we have booked a table at Lexden Crown, the first visit having no problems. Sadly this was not the case this time around and it's highy unlikely that we'll be returning in the future.
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.
