Covid-19 Our Response

The lockdown has given us the opportunity to review every aspect of our service, back of house and front of house, redesigning services for optimum safety in the longer term. We have always taken the safety of our teams and customers extremely seriously and have achieved an award-winning standard over the years, in light of the current Coronavirus pandemic this has never been more important.

We are reopening our cafes, restaurants, and hospitality with the same values that have always under-pinned health and safety and hygiene at Lexington. We have worked extremely hard behind the scenes to make everything as safe as possible for our teams and customers as possible so that when we welcome everyone back they will feel confident and comfortable in their new environment.
