The food and service were wonderful. The garden absolutely gorgeous. The only thing I would personally change was the lighting. It was so bright at dinner it felt like being in a cafeteria. More subtle lighting would've made it perfect. That is just a personal preference, though. Others may not mind that at all.

The Friends we were dining with were unfortunately and unavoidably delayed. The staff were very accommodating in dealing with this. It was very nice to meet the chef and discuss how one of dishes was cooked.

My daughter and I had lunch at The Cross recently, to mark a special day. We were impressed from start to finish; it is a beautiful old building and beautifully maintained, both inside and out. The staff greeted us very well and we really cannot fault anything. The service was attentive but not intrusive; all the staff were polite and charming, explaining elements of each dish to us. The food was exquisite, beautifully presented, with superb flavours and textures. We had the 3-course set menu, which I believe is very good value for money. Really delighted with our entire experience, we hope to return soon. Thank you all.

We had a truly lovely experience. The food was absolutely excellent. My son really appreciated the wonderful touch of a card signed by the staff and a special plate after the meal congratulating him on his graduation. Thank you for giving us a very special evening.

We had the tasting menu and accompanying wines. It was one of the nicest meals we've had for some time: every course was perfectly cooked and presented with some lovely flavour combinations in a nice relaxed setting. We particularly enjoyed the duck and the ducks egg courses. The service was very largely friendly and efficicient - apart from one point when something clearly went wrong. We were served the wrong dishes; a few minutes later the same happened to another couple. Their dishes were then given to a party of four along with another one but the 4th person was kept waiting for hers quite some time. We then had to wait almost 20 minutes for our final course. That confusion apart, our experience was lovely and highly recommended.

Impeccable food and service. Surprising but delicious flavour combinations in every dish. Perfect example of the best of Modern British cooking. Deserves every point of its star

My cousin, who is a frequent international traveller, declared that her lunch was one of the best meals she has ever enjoyed. Our plaice and turbot were perfectly cooked, and presented with delicious vegetables that did not overwhelm the fish. The service was professional and attentive without becoming intrusive.

This was a fantastic experience from start to finish. We chose the taster menu with accompanying wine flight. The food and wine were exceptional and the quality was cemented by the excellent and friendly service we received throughout. Thank you for making our wedding anniversary such a special occasion.

bread was fine but was better few years ago. salad was pretty but the smallest ive ever witnesses. service is maybe a bit over the top and not that genuine. noise levels from other eaters were quite high as no great acoustics reducing it

Each course taken from the A la Carte menu was a delight. Sat outside In the sun for the lunchtime. Very relaxed atmosphere which we loved.

Do not like the dress down attitude of some of your diners this is a Michelin star restaurant and feel this should be respected. We do feel it’s getting more expensive . I might also mention that some of the food seems to be always on the menu and we don’t come that regularly although very good eg duck egg , crab soup and duck which seems to be served the same each time . Besides that we really enjoy our experience .

We were expecting an ouvre bouche before the starter , nothing came. Starter it was supposed to be a salad, dish too limited with only a few leaves of greens but a very decorated composition, a bit larger dish would have been better. The main course took half an hour to arrive, my pork was dry and the other dish special fish and chips was quite ordinary and again limited portions. We decided that we were already quite disappointed to order dessert.
