Beautiful food - the crab soup is stunning. Attentive wait staff and wonderful wine. Lovely setting (bit chilly but we did go during the Beast from the East!) We will be back - worthy of all its praise.

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.
