Holding 2 AA Rosettes, The Old Passage Inn is a seafood restaurant on the banks of the River Severn with stunning views of the Forest of Dean. A 19th-century inn that was once an old ford, the fresh menu is predominantly British-influenced.

Focusing on sustainably sourced fish and local meat, The Old Passage Inn menu begins with enticing starters including seared breast of pigeon with celeriac gratin, pickled girolles and blackberry purée, and treacle-cured salmon with pickled beetroot and stem ginger syrup. The star main dish is fresh lobster, live from their own seawater tank and served with hand-cut chips and a choice of sauce. Other tempting options are roast monkfish with curried mussel fricassee, traditional beer-battered fish and chips, and roast breast of pheasant.

A striking green building, The Old Passage Inn Arlingham is decorated in bright, modern colours. From inside the restaurant or on the terrace, the views of the river and the Gloucestershire countryside are unrivalled.

The Old Passage Inn near the Severn Bore is a 20-minute drive from both Cam and Dursley and Stonehouse Train Stations.

    We went on the recommendation of a friend and were blown away with how good the food and the service were. It's also an idyllic location - who knew? We will definitely be back.

    An excellent lunch in a delightful location. Our guests were impressed!

    Our lunch at the Old Passage surpassed all our expectations. It was absolutely fantastic; from perfectly chilled wine, fabulous oysters, delicious mains and perfect puddings. The service and attention to detail was outstanding. We will be back and hope the sun will be out again so we can sit outside and enjoy the equally outstanding view of the River Severn and St Peter’s Church at Newnham.

    Fritto misto to die for - so long since I've eaten one even close.
    Fish dishes generally top notch so my dining companions told me.
    Just a lovely lunchtime experience.

    Very expensive, not impressed

    The restaurant lived up to all expectations. It’s rather remote location made the evening into a bit of an adventure that well complimented by it’s welcoming and friendly staff made the dining experience superb. The food, based mostly around fish dishes, was imaginative, beautifully presented and extremely tasty. The quantities were generous but not excessive and the wine was perfect.....we had the Three Choirs good! The prices were very reasonable for such a lovely evening and we will definitely be going back in the future.

    Very enjoyable experience all round. Food excellent and service was first class. We will certainly visit again with friends, family or as a couple.

    I did NOT like the rather impersonal telephone booking system and felt I needed to add to the online version that my husband was a wheelchair user. This was redeemed because on arrival the staff greeted us outside, showed us the entrance and provided help with the steep slope and the door sill.
    The welcome was friendly but not familiar, lovely setting and I loved the restaurant furnishings. The food was DELICIOUS - the mussels were brilliant
