The Cross Kenilworth Loin of Venison


When you first catch sight of this pub’s smart exterior, you’ll just know that they take things seriously here – and when an eager member of staff greets you, settles you in and explains the menu, this initial impression is confirmed.

Further proof comes on your plate: skilfully executed, classical dishes showcase prime seasonal ingredients, and dishes not only look impressive but deliver on flavour too. This is, after all, a mature and confident kitchen team who know how to treat their produce with respect. If you’re seated in the back room, which opens onto the terrace, you get to watch the kitchen team in action; the bright, airy room next door used to be a classroom – a fact alluded to by the eye-catching wall lamps shaped like hand bells. The front bar, meanwhile, with its adjoining snug and wood burning stove, makes a cosy place for a beer and a homemade sausage roll.

Specialties include: 

  • Crispy duck egg with cured ham, celeriac purée and chicken jus
  • Roast loin of lamb with Jersey Royals, seaweed butter and lamb jus
  • Hazelnut praline soufflé, blood orange ice cream and caramelised white chocolate sauce

5 course tasting menu starting from £75 pp
