This was a great discovery. The surroundings were comfortable and attractive, the staff pleasant and efficient. The food was excellent. Every course was delicious. This is possibly the best meal I have had in a few years. A great choice for a special occasion.

No, the Cross has not lost its star, infact it was confirmed in yesterdays new Michelin Guide. If you Google Coventry Telegraph restaurants there is an article on this. I hope this helps.
