Description: The Noahs Ark is a child friendly restaurant. Menu consists of large wholesome meals from locally sourced steaks to freshly prepared pasta dishes. All main meals include a visit to our fresh salad bar but please dont pile it too high as our chefs are well known for their large portions!Love football?? We show every live sky sports game on 3 flat screen tv's and one 14ft full HD projector and screen, and dont worry if your local team clashes with another as we have the availability of showing 3 different games on our tele's. If your having a party don't hesitate to look at our downstairs function room which will hold parties of 25-60 with comfort, however if your party is a little bigger don't worry we will always cater for you in the pub itself!

Great Sunday carvery! If you're really hungry go for the mix. Friendly staff, friendly atmosphere... I'd eat there all the time if I could. Very highly recommended!!!

The Blagdon Inn could learn a lot by checking out Noah's Ark but they seem far too busy with ruining the interior and atmosphere, replacing chefs, and replacing managers. Shame they weren't prepared to replace my anaemic, luke warm roast potatoes!

We had a Sunday lunch and an evening meal in this pub/restaurant. On both occasions the food was of a good standard and excellent value for the modest cost. Staff were v helpful and the lady who served our lunch advised us to have the smaller version of the carvery which was more than adequate. The decor and location are somewhat mundane so you would not choose the Noah for a special occasion. There is ample car parking.

As soon as we walked in it was obvious the young guy was the manager, we had not really been in Noah's Ark before and the kids had always commented on it as the front of the pub looks like a boat, after being turned away from Beafeater at 5.30 we decided to give it a try. (Not sure why we were turned away from Beefeater as it was half empty) So we walked in to a friendly greeting and the place was really nice, the bar was spotless and all the tables were gleaming a large fish tank behind the bar was a little bit different and the animal pictures all around kept the kids amused. The service was superb, the food was very good and the menu had loads to choose from. We all enjoyed our dinners and the salad bar was a nice touch, we had four really well made cocktails that we'reTGI Friday standard. The kids ate an adults meal and some starters and we all had more than enough food, the nachos were the best my husband has tasted with a really good sauce and home made chilli, the Manager even gave my husband a small bottle to take away with him which was a really nice touch. All in all this was the best meal out we've had in a very long time and we said we will go again next month, we wish this young couple every success and hope that whoever employs them reads this and looks after them because employees like that are very hard to find

Visited for Christmas dinner, the food was top class. The duck was HUGE and cooked to a tender perfection. Staff were very friendly. Food was neither too quick nor too slow. We were not rushed out of the door. Will come back many times in the future.

Having had a sunday carvery here previously a few months ago we were treated to Christmas lunch by my daughter & they certainly delivered the goods !!!
Good service & a lovely food to go with it , from the starters to the dessert & mince pies all was excellent , but the actual Christmas lunch surpassed all expectations , piping hot plates which is an essential , tender turkey / beef & a wonderful selection of veg, ( no soggy sprouts) roast & potatoes dauphinoise ( areal unexpected surprise) . All was very pleasing . Well done to all concerned !
