The Cross Kenilworth

Discover the charm of Kenilworth in Warwickshire at The Cross, an acclaimed restaurant where Michelin-starred cuisine meets a warm and inviting atmosphere. Led by chef-director Adam Bennett, whose commitment to culinary excellence, has earned a Michelin star for over nine years and three AA Rosettes, along with the prestigious Good Food Award Gold Seal in 2021.

Owned by the renowned and respected chef-patron Andreas Antona, who also owns the Michelin-starred Simpsons in Birmingham, The Cross is housed in a beautifully restored Grade II listed 19th-century inn. Balancing heritage and modernity, it’s a delightful spot to savour exceptional food, experience a casual ambiance, and enjoy superb service.

The main dining room, a former school room, opens into a cozy bar, once a bustling butcher’s shop. Another dining space provides a glimpse into the bustling kitchen. Step into the green and spacious garden, a perfect setting for aperitifs, cocktails, and post-dinner drinks.

Following the culinary lead of chef-director Adam Bennett, the menu mirrors the changing seasons and celebrates top-quality produce from local suppliers. The Cross is a place where the dining experience seamlessly blends history, innovation, and flavour.
