Food was very good. Service efficient and friendly. Value for money excellent. I had mentioned one of our party had a birthday and this was duly acknowledged with a card and decorated petit four plate. Altogether a pleasing surprise -not many places near Coventry warrant a good review!(i say this as a long term resident of Coventry).

Beautiful food lovingly served throughout. Attentive - but not obtrusive - serving staff. You remembered that it was our anniversary and provided a card and a nicely decorated congratulation at the end of our meal.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the whole experience at The Cross. The food was excellent and the staff were brilliant. Our children absolutely loved their mains and puddings. The only improvement would have been if we could have had the children's menus at the start of the meal to show them what the choices were and have the colouring to do while they waited.

Very disappointing evening. The food was good, deserving of the Michelin star, but the service and the atmosphere were a big let down. On arrival we were asked if we'd like a drink in the bar first which the maitre d' acknowledged , but then led us straight to our table! The table was cramped with odd, uncomfortable chairs. The ambience and decor in the rear dinning area was no better than a Weatherspoons and the noise, because so many people were crammed in there, made conversation very difficult. And the service at the table was not what I would expect, the cutlery kept being put in front of the wrong person. This was especially annoying for the vegetarian in our group as the meat knives kept being put in front of him. All in all, disappointing and we won't be returning any time soon.

Fantastic lunch. Unbeatable value on set menu but a la carte too tempting to stay just on that! Excellent service too. Will 100% be returning. Thank you

We spontaneously decided to go for lunch and really enjoyed the food - 3 courses and a half bottle of wine for £32.50 makes it accessible for all. All in all it’s superb.

This was the 13th meal Jill and I have had at the Cross--it was a celebration of the anniversary of getting engaged (21 years ago! and we still haven't tied the knot). The Cross has never failed to impress, and this most recent visit was no exception. As always, the food was sublime and the service perfect: efficient, charming and unobtrusive. Chef Adam was kind enough to spare some time for a chat. He has a prodigious talent and is absolutely delightful--a perfect host and completely deserving of his retention of a Michelin star. Jill and I look forward to our next visit. Many thanks to all at the Cross for a perfect evening. Mike and Jill

Why would anybody not recommend The Cross? The meal was a celebration of my niece's 50th birthday and the staff made it special. She lives in San Francisco so has a choice of world famous food but she was very impressed and loved it, as we do. Q Why do I always choose the duck egg starter? A Because it's divine! Thank You everybody.

Incredible meal as always. Despite the mussel soup being unavailable, I’ll still went for the sweetcorn soup the Chef had prepared, I’ve learnt anything served at The Cross will be wonderful. The staff yet again were so attentive, polite and friendly. The best restaurant I’ve ever had the privilege of visiting.
