Had a superb meal here mid weeik. Food was amazing and the staff were tremendous. Meal wasn't cheap, but worth every penny, even down to the butter which the restaurant had sourced from a specialist in Bicester. Really friendly atmosphere - will definitely save up and go again.

Excellent menu and service, young team always pleasant and giving perfect explanations and recommendations. The plates are well prepared, the food is very good. The atmosphere is warm and the place is clean. Not so far from Coventry, it is worth getting out and join this nice Kenilworth area :) Fancy eating excellent food with family or friends, this restaurant... More

Great meal, great atmosphere, went as part of my retirement celebrations as a treat from my wife. We were really well looked after by Riccardo, Levio and the team. The food was superb especially the crispy duck egg, would always recommend a visit if you are in Kenilworth. I don't know about Michelin stars but I do like my food.

Chef Adam Bennett never fails to amuse, delight and surprise. Once again another stunning meal at The Cross last night, well worthy of the Michelin accolade. Staff are always welcoming and attentive, but without suffocating the diners. The ambiance is always just petfect. The food is off the scale good. Can't wait for the next visit.

Went here for a birthday treat towards the end of February and really enjoyed it. Food was excellent and really flavoursome. Staff were excellent and attentive we were not rushed and I think we were the last to leave on our own accord and we were still offered a drink. I have seen the bad publicity recently about this place... More

We visited on Saturday for a three course lunch. The food was all delicious and well presented. We tried cocktails beforehand - the Champage Breakfast was a winner. Would recommend the crispy egg and the venison. Lovely atmosphere too.

Well, what can I say about this Michelin starred restaurant? The name The Cross is very apt as everybody was cross about the underwhelming food and when the bill came we felt like we had been crucified. Ideal for those looking to loose weight and money.

If Michelin stars were awarded for very small portions of quite tasty food costing a bomb then this place would be fine. But here's the thing. This place is advertising a star and its service is really really cack-handed. After asking twice for an orange juice and being told 'well you didn't as ME!', the waitress finally brought it, knocked... More

We really enjoyed our evening celebrating our anniversary. The food was tasty. Only constructive criticism is that I didn't really enjoy my starter (crispy duck egg), and I was not that impressed with the choice of starters. At times the service could have been more attentive, but the waiter from Portugal was fab and made our night.
