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.

Great pub, they've really done a lot to improve the place, and the food. They also offer a "locals" rate, which is good.

I often visit the Noah's with my family for food. Highly recommend the carvery. Today we noticed the new specials menu. Well what can I say .... The belly pork was absolutely first class, a massive portion of fantastically cooked meat and veg... The cottage pie was huge and tasted delicious. The salad bar all was fresh and full. Staff...

My family and I decided to take a trip to Noah's ark on Sunday as we'd all heard good things about the place. Although we hadn't booked and it was already quite busy the staff quickly seated our party of 10, took our drink orders and provided colouring for the children! The carvery was fantastic with 4 different choices of... More

Myself and my friend ordered from the main menu, his steak was terribly underdone and tough even so, the scampi I had was the typical off cuts in greasy batter. The chips, well, I consider them to be over done, the oil needed changing and there was a lot of "banter" between obviously half drunk customers and the bar staff.... More

We live near to the Noahs and have used it many times over the years.In recent months we have had very mixed experiences there(which I discussed with the staff) but decided to give them the chance to earn some brownie points back as my son wanted to spend his 18th birthday there for a carvery. We were a party of... More

We were on holiday in the area and our B&B recommended this pub, although we have no idea why! It turned out to the worst meal of our holiday and we wouldn't return if we were in the area again. The pub was showing a football match on a large screen which wasn't ideal for a relaxing meal, and the... More

Went here for Sunday lunch and was not disappointed at all. Lovely food friendly atmosphere and reasonably priced. The carvery was fresh and topped up all the time we were there. 10 out of 10 xx

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!
