The restaurant staff were friendly and accommodating, even though the food was such a high standard and definitely deserves its Michelin star the atmosphere was relaxed and no unnecessary pomp!! Can’t want to visit again.

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.
