Editor’s Choice | The Old Passage Inn
Seafood and shellfish lovers need never wonder where to eat out again if they live within reach of The Old Passage Inn. This delightful Cotswold eatery with 2 AA Rosettes is the only one in Gloucestershire to specialise in fish dishes and has earned a great reputation for innovative, appetising ways of preparing them.
The restaurant sits in a picturesque spot beside the River Severn just outside Arlingham, with views to the Forest of Dean and Newnham.
Menus change with the seasons and the availability of top quality catches and have already made the Old Passage Restaurant of the Year in the Cotswold Food & Drink Awards.
Owner Sally Pearce says: “Our chefs are very passionate about the food and we have choices to suit everyone, from fish & chips for people who like their meals traditional through to, say, monkfish with a split crab bisque or Moroccan fish stew with mussels and fillet of bream.”
Child diners are welcome at lunchtimes, but evening service is for adults only.
Guests sometimes stay over for bed & breakfast in one of the restaurant’s two delightful double en suite rooms.
The Old Passage Inn is a great place from which to watch the famously dramatic tidal surges of the Severn Bore, and bookings are being taken for special £30 Bore Breakfasts in September and October.
