Few things warm the heart more than a classic British pub and The Bell & Cross in Clent is a fine example of why. It’s a little cottage-style building in Holy Cross area and it’s well-loved by the community it serves. Here you can expect rustic-chic decor, real ales, a warm embrace and a menu chock full of homemade food. Whether you’re after a light lunch, a hearty main, or even just a relaxed ale or coffee, prepare to spend longer at The Bell & Cross on Holy Cross than you thought you would. Here is the best of British and you’re going to love it as much as we do.
Always lovely food and staff, have been going there for years
We had a lovely Sunday roast on 13 August 2017. The service was good, the food quality was great and the portion large enough to take a doggy bag home. We had read negative reviews, however we have nothing bad to say.
Every country village needs a pub and restaurant it can rely on and, in the case of Clent, a distant suburb of Birmingham, that pub and restaurant is The Bell & Cross. This is one of the most charming little eateries you’re likely to come across and it’s fair to say that Holy Cross is lucky to have it. Step inside and you’ll be met by a friendly team who really can’t do enough for you, as well cosy decor that radiates a sense of home. Set on Holy Cross – one of the main throughways of this wonderful area – The Bell & Cross is the perfect spot for a drink or for fine British cuisine.
Begin your meal at The Bell & Cross with some lite bites in the way of garlic mushrooms on sourdough toast with blue mascarpone, a smoked salmon and prawn cocktail, duck and orange terrine, or a whole mini baked camembert studded with garlic and rosemary. Goodness, we’re excited already, but for mains there are even more fine British flavours for foodies of Clent and Holy Cross to get excited about. To highlight one dish over any other is, to be honest, criminal because all of it is standout. But, to give you an idea of what to expect, there is calf's liver with smoked bacon and mousseline potatoes, Cornish slow-cooked lamb shoulder, carved ham with egg and chips, pie of the day and last, but certainly, absolutely not least, beer battered cod and chips. Is your mouthwatering? Ours is. Reserve a table at Clent’s The Bell & Cross to enjoy all of this fabulous British cuisine and much, much more.
