The Cross at Kenilworth has been recognised as a 2020 Travellers’ Choice award-winner for restaurants

Based on a full year of Tripadvisor reviews, prior to any changes caused by the pandemic, Traveller’s Choice award winners are known for consistently receiving great feedback, placing The Cross in the top ten per cent of hospitality businesses around the world.

Adam Bennett, executive chef, who helped the pub secure a Michelin Star less than 12 months after it reopened in 2014, said: “Following what has been a tough few months, it’s fantastic to have our hard work recognised with an international award. We are grateful to everyone who has taken the time to review us and I’m very proud of the team for delivering such a high ranking experience.”
