The restaurant is well situated in the middle of Kenilworth. I have eaten there once before and I was pleasantly surprised when they said they had a table on a Saturday night at short notice. Overall the experience of eating at The Cross was very good. The suggested wine a Sauvignon, the bread and my wife's starter of goats cheese... More

There is really good parking for this place just off the street but the disabled parking is right at the bottom of quite a long hill . Strangely the entrance to the restaurant adjacent to these bays has a couple of flights of steps?? So I parked right by the upper entrance by a car I saw park up just... More

Wow, the food is excellent. I was driving, so no wine, but the cuisine on offer more than made up for it. We will be going again the next time we are in the area.

Started with a martini (thought it was on the house, but it wasn't and it was a good martini so I'll let that slip) Followed the wine event. Each wine was explained by the rep from spy valley wines. Each wine was nice and... More

We enjoyed a very tasty and beautifully presented lunch here this week. As usual, we were immediately greeted as we arrived and the service remained pretty much as attentive throughout our meal. We opted for the £25 per head 3-course lunch menu this time as the choices looked so delicious and we were not disappointed. I don't have a huge... More

Ok it was a while ago that we ate here but I'm creating some belated reviews for experiences that made an impression on me. This place had been a regular favourite for us for years, but we hadn't been since it was taken over by the current owners. So I chose to go there for my birthday. The place itself... More

It's been a while since we last visited for one of the gastronomic dinners. We arrived unannounced and received first class service of a perfectly balanced 3 course meal. We dined in the lower floor in view of the kitchen and were able to observe the chefs preparing our meals. An unexpected treat were the gnocchi style gluten free dumplings... More

Lovely food, beautifully presented, excellent flavours. Slight downside .... the salad and chips with the ribeye steak were a little over seasoned. Apart from that, faultless.
