Situated on the border of Surrey and West Sussex, The Noah’s Ark can be found on the edge of the South Downs National Park, a stone’s throw from Blackdown – a particularly popular and picturesque hiking area. Built in the 16th century, this charming pub retains much of its original character: the historic fireplace is home to a crackling log fire, and exposed beams can be admired in both the bar and the dining room.
Whether you’re breaking up your walk with a tasty lunch – the pub is family-friendly and dogs are welcome in the bar area – or simply enjoying a relaxing glass of wine, you’re guaranteed a warm welcome from the hospitable Noah’s Ark team.
As well as an impressive wine list, the bar stocks a great array of ale, cider and spirits. If you’re looking for a light snack to accompany your drinks, be sure to check out the food menu – the seasonal dishes are crafted with high-quality ingredients, many of which are grown on the premises. If you fancy something light but tasty, why not split the cheeseboard with a friend? For heartier appetites, the tender confit duck is a popular choice and vegetarians are offered a delicious mushroom, spinach and pine nut linguine dish that’s beautifully creamy and full of flavour.
