[Arlingham, Glos.] The Old Passage
Several people had recommended this place to us. It's an inn which sits out at the very end of the Arlingham peninsula and overlooks the Severn. It is quite a scenic place. You can see the picturesque town of Newnham just across the Severn, which is so close you could walk to it - if the Severn were not in between you.
We drove out there for breakfast on Saturday. The Old Passage bills itself as primarily a seafood restaurant, using local stock if possible but otherwise getting their fish and shellfish from Cornwall.
I had a smoked Haddock and chive Souffle omelette. This is a delicate souffle served in a small, hot pan. The souffle was delicious and perfectly seasoned. My wife had charcoal-grilled salmon with a poached egg, Hollandaise sauce and caviar. The salmon was fresh and tender. The Hollandaise sauce was thick and creamy and sharp. A bit too sharp for my tastes but my wife loved it. Fresh juices, toasts, marmalade, butter and coffee rounded out the meal.
We are definitely keen on going back either for breakfast or for their lunch menu.
