We have visited Noahs Ark plenty of times before and have received good service before! However on our latest visit we were confronted with a whole new set of front of house staff who were more interested in watching the football than serving there customers. After standing around for 10 mins watching the bar staff watch the football, I asked... More

Went here with a few friends and I have to say the food was so poor, so poor that all of us left most of our food. The service was good, the waiter/bar men was very attentive and polite but I wouldn't return. We had salad from the salad bar which didn't have any dressing, we asked for some and... More

Visited whilst on our hols in half term. Very close to where we were staying so we decided to pop in on the Friday night before we went home on the Saturday. Got there around 5 but it was quite quiet. I ordered some drinks at the bar and the barman got us a highchair. He gave me menus and... More

Had our charity Xmas meal here for 15 people. The staff had gone to a lot of trouble to make the seating nice and informal. We were greeted cordially and served drinks very quickly. Once seated, food was served at a leisurely but acceptable pace, and a couple of small issues were dealt with swiftly and politely. The food was... More

Great food beer service and staff, plenty of parking spaces. There is a large screen for footy lovers however if like us you are not into that, you can sit around the corner which is less lit and quieter. The food prices are very good as the quality is superb. Highly recommended and close to Paignton zoo.

Thank Cindy P

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!
