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.

it was our first time visiting The Old Passage, and we were delighted. Your service is A1 and the food was pretty good as well! I feel sure we shall come to you again, lunch is best for us as we are not 'next door'.

The food and service was excellent,however the lunch time experience was ruined because of a group of four ladies who made such a racket,we even requested to be moved into a small room for our coffee as the noise from these ladies became un bearable.
As a result we would not recommend this restaurant in case the same thing would happen again .

Stunning restaurant. We have the seafood platter and dessert, it was delicious. The setting is stunning and staff very helpful. Highly recommend this to anyone.

Very pleasant. Living up to expectations. Not cheap...
You have to be a fish-aficionado to appreciate its main attraction. Not for vegetarians. No bar.
Al fresco if the (English) weather is nice.

It was an amazing experience. The food was awesome, so much so I feel it is one of the best restaurants I have eaten in for a very long time. The ambience was lovely, very relaxing and felt as though we were somewhere in the Mediterranean. The Staff were very helpful and well mannered and kind. We definitely will be returning!

What a disappointment. This was our second visit to the restaurant and unfortunately, probably our last. The food was very disappointing. My lamb was so tough and heavily smoked that it was inedible – albeit I was later informed by the waitress who cleared our dishes that only the aubergine beneath it was smoked (no mention on the menu of anything being smoked) !
My wife and friends had scallops for their starter – at £14 we would have expected three whole scallops each and not three half scallops (particularly as they were not very large).
The lobster thermidor was basically lobster in cheddar cheese sauce – not a true representation of the dish.
The service was fine and the location is beautiful, but the owner / chef need to up their game – particularly at these prices.
