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.

They have a special Valentines menu on 13th & 14th Feb. Saturday is already fully booked I think but check out their web site for full details. The menu is listed there.
