Very friendly staff. But no food. However, you can (after asking for permission I suppose) bring your own food.

Please come back to Noahs Ark next time you are in Dufftown. You will find that you will be able to enjoy some really good food in a lovely bistro, and I would like to thank the guide du routard particularly for its recommendation. Yes, we have good whisky and many other drinks and a loyal clientele of local people as well as welcoming visitors from around the world. We also work as a bistro with rooms. I look forward to seeing you soon.

Cramped seating with too many cushions but looked forward to the pleasure of home cooked fresh food.
Total disappointment, soup too salty, bread almost inedible. Service very slow, prices very high and we were also unfortunately overcharged.
We love Dufftown but will not be visiting Noah's Ark again.

We care for people who visit Fournet House and therefore we have really tried to ensure that this care is reflected both in the decor and the food in Noah's Ark licensed bistro, which is one very important part of the whole of what is offered at Fournet. . We are very, very concerned that these particular people did not enjoy their experience and would much prefer to have been told at the time when it might have been possible to improve, or change their views. Fortunately, many, many more other people really enjoy what we try to do. Thank you all for your support.

Great food, wonderful atmosphere. Alison the host makes you feel 100% welcome and nothing seems too much to ask.

As my wife and I are vegetarians we were recommended Noah's Ark for our dinner.It is a cosy little place with very creative interiors.Alison,the owner was very welcoming.She lit candles around the room as we entered.
We were a bit picky about the ingredients required for our meal.Alison immediately went to a nearby store and brought them.
We had a lovely salad with excellent dressing,followed by a three egg omelette.An excellent PIMMS accompanied the food.
We had an interesting and long conversation with Alison on all kinds of subjects.
A very interesting evening.
