The Cross

Top choice Gastropub

in Kenilworth

One of England's culinary jewels, this Michelin-starred gastropub occupies a romantic 19th-century inn. Prepare to be dazzled by exquisite creations like seared scallops with seaweed butter, duck breast with smoked beetroot and raspberry vinegar, and brioche pudding with apple-and-blackberry compote and bay leaf ice cream.

Vegetarian menus are available; junior gourmands have their own three-course children's menu (£12).
