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.

Great Sunday lunch at the cross! Was disappointed the pie wasn’t on the menu upon arrival, however once I discussed this with the waiter, he then come back and said the chef will do us a special roast, including beef and the utterly delicious beef & walnut pie! Best roast dinner I’ve ever eaten! Thank you to the cross! Will defo be back again soon.

Excellent value with the wine. Salmon starter a particular highlight. Did not fancy any of the desserts, not really got a sweet tooth. Red wine glasses far too large, sorry. Like drinking from a goldfish bowl. Delightful attentive service. Have already recommended to a friend for her birthday treat

The food was amazing. However we found the service and atmosphere quite disappointing. The waiting staff looked like they didn’t want to be there. It was my husband’s birthday and they did do a birthday plate with some little treats but the waitress basically plonked it in front of him and walked off.

The entire experience was nice but the rating on food and drink I’ve given is driven from the fact that the menu is dated. There was nothing hugely adventurous or exciting on the menu, it felt like the kind of food I’d have loved 5 years ago but expect more as trends have progressed. The food was well presented and tasted good but there wasn’t anything standout which meant it felt very much overpriced. We asked to see the sommelier who never came and so the knowledge shared on the wine list was quite generic. The service was discreet, warm and attentive, can’t fault that and the room and bar is a really pleasant place to be. If the acid test is whether I would recommend a friend or look forward to returning then sadly the answer would be no. I would suggest further out Michelin standard restaurants over the cross.

I organise and attend work dinners all the time and it’s rare that a restaurant performs to the level as the team at The Cross. We held a dinner for 18 people and everything was perfect - perfectly balanced and delicious menu and attentive but not pretentious service. The cocktail masterclass was more of a show-and-tell than a true masterclass but the delivery was very entertaining and the cocktails kicked the evening off with a bang. A fantastic night.

Always enjoy your meals. I think the current wine offer means that the lunch is extremely good value. How long do you intend to keep it on?

Arrived to find half the building without electricity. Had missed a call from staff. Restaurant able to offer a different table and with some variations to menu. As a frequent visitor, I can honestly say that other than a lack of music, we noticed little difference. Most importantly the food was stunning and the staff excellent. Pre-dinner drinks were waived as an apology for inconveniences caused by factors beyond the control of staff. Sometimes difficult circumstances show how well a team reacts or how well someone copes. The night illustrated just how talented Adam and his kitchen team are and just how professional the front of house and waiting team are. Already looking forward to the next visit.

I love a good steak which you do well. I hate having to pay extra for peppercorn sauce, particularly at £3 a pop for a thimbleful! Increasing the cost of the steak and then including the sauce would be more palatable. I like your restaurant but the prices are really too expensive. We keep coming back though because we had our first date at the Cross, 7 yrs ago.
