The Cross started out as an inn back in the 19th century and was recently refurbished to reveal its original features. Expect a warm welcome, friendly service and stunning dishes, cooked using the very best local ingredients.
Food and service fantastic. Can’t wait to get back there again.
Over an hour between first and secon course of tasting menu was too long without any explanation until the course was served. Nobody was there to greet us on arrival. Otherwise good.
Myself, husband & son all had a very delicious 3 course meal each with cocktails beer & wine, we really enjoyed our experience in the lovely ambience while we had our meal & drinks, also pre drinks in the bar was very nice with very good customer service from the lovely waiters especially the French man. Thank you for a very special meal for our son’s birthday treat we will be visiting again when we have another occasion.
As always a fabulous meal with excellent service. We look forward to coming back soon!
As always superb food and excellent service, with friendly and helpful staff.
Excellent service with the maitre de going the extra mile to accommodate my requests
Lovely meal and great service.
The food and drink were both excellent. I am a vegan due to food allergies and my food was just as good as the others. It is expensive but worth it
We had a fantastic lunch - food quality was excellent - simple fresh ingredients beautifully cooked, presented and tasting great ! Service attentive friendly and professional We will be back again !
My only criticism, which is a recurring complaint, is the attractiveness of the tables along the back wall in the main room. It is a very dull aspect to sit in a big room sitting 4 feet from a wall and enjoying that wall as the view. Putting seating at those tables at right angles, whilst losing some covers, would be so much more appealing.
As usual a very high standard of cusine and service
Great tasting menu, wonderful and attentive service.
Our first time at The Cross and very pleased with everything! Really not expensive for this level of quality and service. Food delightful, staff friendly and attentive.
We had a really wonderful time. The birthday card was a lovely touch and multiple staff members wised my partner a happy birthday which was really nice. The food was amazing and the waiting staff were great. We did have a 30 minute wait for the final dessert which seemed a long time although we expect this was not usual. Thanks for a great evening
Excellent lunch - the third time we have been and equally as good each time. Staff particularly welcoming and attentive.
Service was fantastic! It was our anniversary and we were presented with a lovely plate with Happy Anniversary on and some petit fours after the meal. The lunch menu was good value and all the food was delicious. Would love to come back and try the tasting menu.
Delicious food, excellent staff, although service at the beginning was a little slower than last time.
We had a fantastic family meal to celebrate a birthday. Food and service was as fantastic as ever - it's always a joy to go to the Cross
We had not been to the cross for a number of years and was really looking forward to our booking. When we arrived we initially sat by toilets and serving hatch with no other guess around, we asked to be moved which they did accommodate us, however I do wonder why we were not sat in the second table to start with. After this the service really went down hill, we were never asked if drinks needed to be refilled they took empty glasses and quickly vacated before we could speak. Other tables either side of us, had regular drinks and plates were cleared, while we sat we empty drinks and plates which ended clearing for some time. The food was nice, but again I was expecting more especially with the Star the restaurant had received, I have been to two and three star restaurants which have been outstanding. I feel this outstanding experience was missing. We didn't stay for dessert, we went to a nice place in kenilworth high street.
The revised menu choices were excellent the service as always was great Only negative was the crab tart was not very crabby a bit to messed about Other wise food chosen fantastic We had our favourite table thank you
We had the tasting menu and all was excellent, except for the melon feta salad, which I though was nothing special. Very attentive and good service; will definitely be coming back.
The Cross is the best restaurant in the West Midlands. The service and food cannot be faulted. Very consistent high stands are delivered every visit The Duck Egg has been to be considered their stand out dish.
The decor needs a feminine touch.....and i say that as a guy......and also in appreciating the original features......I still would say it needs a softer aesthetic...Outstanding tasting menu....tender duck .very hard to achieve...might even go to halfway between medium rare and rare....charming service......
We were at the Cross with relatives from the North east. They loved the food (the red mullet soup was a winner). Service was excellent.
We usually opt for the 'lunchtime special' and it is simple, beautifully presented with a range of organic salad/vegetables and tastes delicious. Genuinely satisfied with mouthwatering flavours. The food is excellent and the execution perfect. I've often wondered if you do a day cookery school type event - think I'd be first on the list to pick up a few tips! We've eaten out various times in the garden this summer and really loved it. Service is spot on - attentive without being over fussy. I find the dining room is very cold in winter. I usually have to attire in several layers and this often puts me off going there - I have mentioned this a couple of times and other diners have also remarked on it. I feel like the layout of the tables in the dining room needs a rethink and re shuffle (especially as we're normally in a two) They are all crammed together leaving little room for privacy or chit chat.
