Great little pub and well worth the drive out. Good menu, and great Sunday lunch, but must book as it is very popular. Turned up at 3pm on the off chance of a seat for two and received a very hospitable welcome from the friendly efficient staff. Roast beef and yorkshire pud a must!

Booked for lunch and on arrival found venue very busy. As it was a lovely sunny warm day we gave our inside table up to a very frail and elderly lady with family and sat outside, the downside being you do not get full wait service outside. Mains of various fish ordered and all arrived hot, well presented and of... More

We hadn't realised how busy the pub was and that we had fortunately booked well ahead for Sunday lunch. Friendly staff, good selection of beers and wines. It feels like a proper pub that just happens to do good food. We had a very nice Roast Beef which was so tender, with the usual accompaniments. It is good sized portions... More

I booked ahead as this was for my wife's birthday and a significant one at that! On arrival two glasses of Nyetimber were rushed to the bar and brought a smile to my wife. A welcome from the staff, and the owner as he was going out with a cheery "happy birthday" increased the smile. Wonderful to know that all... More

Another visit to this wonderful pub. Bar staff were friendly and welcoming as always. Came for lunch with friends and the food was lovely. Can't fault this place and would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere new to visit. It is so popular though, so definitely book if you are wanting to eat.

I was recommended to try this pub by a friend who lives locally. I was visiting the area from London and arrived at 1.30pm on a Saturday lunchtime. The garden had tables set up with wicker baskets containing condiments such as ketchup and mustard which reminded me that as well as needing a pint I was also quite hungry. In... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you feel our policy on food orders is strange. Indeed we are a pub and our food policy is necessary for the demand that we receive, particularly on a sunny day at the weekend. Customers that have booked in advance obviously take priority, and this can amount to 100 people in... More

We booked The Noahs Ark for my little boys christening lunch. We had drinks on the lawn at the front of the pub overlooking the cricket pitch followed by lunch for 40 in the barn.....it was perfect. The food was incredible and the service amazing. Henry and his team looked after us so well and the attention to detail was... More
