Food is simply wonderful. Granted, a few of their experiments (beetroot and horseradish icecream on a plate of carpaccio) didn't quite work but at least they're being adventurous. The food is delicious, cooked exceptionally well and the atmosphere is great. I would happily go there...More

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.
