Our Head Chef, John Lane is passionate about his food and believes that using the freshest fish and seafood available he needs to enhance not hide the flavours. Hence his menu is simple but innovative, using sustainably sourced fish.

Of course we always have fresh lobster predominantly from Cornwall and kept in our salt water own tanks. Freshly shucked oysters and our famous Fruits de Mers are particular specialities of the Old Passage. Simple – perfect!

The starters and main courses vary with the availability of fresh fish and may change daily. If you have your hearts set on something specific then please telephone us and we will do our best to supply. If you have dietary or allergy issues, then please let us know, preferably giving us a few days notice.

Please remember that dishes are subject to the daily availability of our fish and shell fish and may well vary subject to weather and other factors.

From Tuesday to Friday we also have the River Lunch Menu. This is a set lunch menu which changes daily so we only show a sample menu. It represents excellent value for money at £15.50 for the main course, £18.50 for two courses or £22.00 for three.
Of course, our a la carte menu is also available.

And breakfast, definitely with a difference. Booking is necessary for this but a wonderful way to start your day.
