Very formal atmosphere to take kids there. Food is good and I love the chips there. It is a bit pricy of course but worth to try for special occasion. I found food for the kids menu was too salty for my kids.

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.
