Great food in a great location

We have just returned from lunch at this great restaurant with views of the river Severn and superb food, wine & service. The a la carte menu is not cheap but reflects what is on offer & therefore good value for money with generous portion sizes but there is the option of a set menu on weekdays... read more

Travelling by the river Seven we came upon the Old Passage Inn However we were walkers and told that we were not welcome despite an almost empty dining room and reserved tables! Not even a cup of coffee was available

On a whim I decided to revisit the old passage pub after many decades away and discovered it had morphed into a most pleasant fish restaurant. We hadn't booked but were made welcome ..having planned only a simple pub lunch and with work to be done in the afternoon we merely sampled from the excellent menu...a shared platter , half... More

We came here for the Bore Breakfast. It was a three course breakfast for £25. We went and watched the Severn Bore first and then headed inside for a warming cup hot drink and yummy food. As soon as the Bore finished about 50 people descended into the restaurant. The system in place meant that we were served promptly and... More

I got recommended this restaurant about 10 years ago and it has taken to now to go there. What a fool I have been. Although a little biit dated in looks the actual quality of the fish, quality of the cooking by the chef was excellent. The front of house host was totally "Old School" she obviously enjoys what she... More

This was our fourth visit and we have always had a friendly welcome and excellent service. The food is seafood perfection - last time(February 5th 2015) four of us had the seafood taster meal and every course delighted the palate - hard to pick a favourite but one of the party liked the crab sandwich best, another the lobster bisque...

This is our second visit to the restaurant and equally as fantastic as the last time! We had their tasting menu and it was an absolute delight, we particularly enjoyed the bisque, shellfish in saffron & Pernod cream and the lobster in garlic butter was a delight. We will most definitely be back and highly recommend it to anybody who... More

Today was our third visit to this restaurant it never fails to please. The quality of ingredients cooking and presentation is as good as any in this country. Quite outstanding for a little hotel close to the back of beyond!

We booked the 6 course tasting menu, never expecting the quality and taste of this menu, and the service was excellent. We started with an oyster each, then shell fish bisque, followed by mussels and clams, and the crab sandwich, which I think was the best for flavour, followed with scallop, and to finish half a lobster. The views of... More
