You could call this place something of a unique find, situated in one the most picturesque village greens in the South Downs, and let me tell you it serves up exquisite food, every time! It’s the kind of place you can either, kick off your wellies, sink into a comfy chair and eat the best of the great English countryside or dress up in your finest and leisurely enjoy a dinner or special event with family or friends. A true country dining pub, who pride themselves on serving the freshest local produce that has been literally plucked from nearby rivers and fields that morning. It doesn’t stop there – the interiors are not only comfy but luxurious all-in-one. The person behind the design clearly had some exceptional talent that enabled them to combine period French furniture and a traditional herringbone flooring and compliment them, quite daringly, with a bold colour palette, rare objects and lavish fabrics – some of them even on the ceiling.
The Noah’s Ark Inn culinary talent comes in the form of a spectacular head Chef, who likes to keep it simple but trust me the results are worthy of even the best of awards. With a menu influenced by the owner’s French roots; your meal will be served up ready for you to just pop on Instagram. The Noah’s Ark is somewhere I have always been fond of, a traditional pub with a menu built around the English seasons and a place where everyone who has visited gets sentimental about. A clean, elegant and perfectly curated menu for every occasion.
The menu boasts a carefully picked number of mouth-watering starters that will leave even the most astute of us pondering for quite a while. From ceviche with avocado, tomato, lime, chilli and coriander served with homemade crisp bread to house hot smoked salmon with a beetroot, watercress and horseradish salad, or even a spinach feta and lemon filo parcel accompanied with broad bean salad and tzatziki. The main course is somehow even better – if that is possible! You’ll find things like free range chicken schnitzel with buttered new potatoes, garden slaw and lemon; fillet of cod on charred leek and thyme risotto served with creme fraiche and watercress or Sussex ribeye steak, chips, garlic butter served along with a summer bean salad.
