What some our many happy customers have said about The Noah's Ark.
Thank you for making our lunch so good and giving us brilliant food, everyone was very complementary. The whole day went very smoothly and we arrived just at the right time at Tillington, so it was good to have a nice break with you.
We will back with the French in May so look forward to seeing you again. Please thank all the staff they were very helpful.

Now that all our guests have returned home, I have the opportunity to drop you a line to thank you, on behalf of my mother and my sisters, for a wonderful celebratory lunch last Sunday.
We would all like to thank you and your team, in and out of the kitchen, for making the day such a special one for us all – please pass on our appreciation to all concerned. A particular thank you to Tray and your chef for all their efforts on our behalf – and, of course, to you for the wonderful floral decorations and all the assistance you gave us.
With all best wishes

Thank you for organising an excellent lunch for us all today. It was lovely being able to have the Ark Room to ourselves and I think everyone much enjoyed the occasion (and the food!).
Please pass on our thanks, too, to all the staff involved for looking after us so well and for making it a very easy and happy day.
Very best wishes and, again, many thanks to you personally for ensuring everything went smoothly

I would just like to congratulate you on the standard of food and service when I attended the Dzenis staff party evening at your pub. Beautifully cooked and presented and a credit to all of you involved in it arriving en mass and piping hot. Not an easy task, but one you seem to have mastered. Very well done!
17th January 2013

Just a quick note to say thank you for you and all your team for such a great lunch on Sunday. It seems to have become an annual event for 3 generations of 3 families and everything looked so inviting and the food was delicious. I am sorry you had to send in the heavies (i.e. Henry) to clear us out but it was truly a measure of how comfortable you made it for everyone so thank you.
See you soon I am sure!

I know it was a lot of work for the whole team but a huge thank you for all the effort you guys put in, a big thank you also to Tom; the catering team and staff. Alex , Hazel and I really appreciate the detail you covered.
In short it was brilliant.

With very many thanks,

Dear Amy and the team!
Thank you SO much for giving us such a wonderful family gathering on Saturday. It could not have been more wonderful – beautiful room with beautiful white rose posies, wonderful warm welcome and fantastic food; everyone thought it was amazing. You were so kind and helpful, and seemed so unconcerned at our poor timekeeping – thank you!
With best wishes to you all
7th October 2012
A little card doesn’t really convey my huge thanks for all your energy and enthusiasm in hosting my 40th. Not only was the food absolutely delicious, plentiful and beautifully presented – everybody serving it had a smile and patience. The bar was hugely efficient, friendly and again, patient beyond belief! No request was too much and every little detail of the event was thought through and delivered with style and grace. Everyone was staggered at the scale of the party and the efficiency in which it was presented.
I really cannot than you enough, I had a total blast. I shall recommend to all that they have every party at the Noah’s – quality from start to finish!

Just a quick note to say thank you very much for a superb lunch yesterday. Great food, friendly/helpful staff and a lovely setting (inside and out).
When I made our booking, I had mentioned that our son has egg and dairy allergies. We were greatly impressed that, when we arrived, we were given a marked up menu showing what meals he would be able to eat and the adjustments that would be made to them. Fantastic and, I am sorry to say, not at all what we are used to with other establishments that claim to serve "home cooked" meals, but don’t seem to have a clue what is in them!!
30th July 2012
We had a lovely day yesterday - The Ark was a perfect venue and yet again the food was wonderful! Compliments again to you and your team!
16th July 2012
My husband and I were on our way to a 24 hour break to the Lythe Hill Hotel, Haslemere, where we spent our wedding night 24 years ago!! We stopped at your fine establishment on our way after a lovely country walk. We were both very impressed with the decor etc of Noahs Ark Inn and I want to say that my thin steak baguette I had from your menu was absolutely delicious and oozing with onions and rare steak pieces. Your chips are also stunningly delicious. Well done and I hope we have an opportunity to come back soon.
3rd July 2012
thank you so much for a fantastic night on Saturday - staff were excellent, food was lovely and atmosphere great. Thanks for your help in making my mums birthday such a success!
All the best,
6th June 2012
I just wanted to write and say thank you so much for looking after us all so well on 10 May. The feedback from all those who attended was really positive. Everyone loved the setting and your staff were so courteous and helpful, we couldn’t help but have a relaxed and happy time. The chilli and fish pie were delicious and there was definitely plenty to go round. Thank you for being so understanding about how late in the day you were given numbers.
All in all the evening was a great success and I can’t thank you enough for making it so painless and for making us feel so welcome.
Very best wishes

Just to thank you for looking after our party in the private room yesterday evening. This was a family celebration of a 21st birthday, and we very much appreciated the attentive service, the excellent food, and the special touches such as the flowers on the table.

Amy and Staff,
I am sorry that this is a bit late but I just wanted to send you a big THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION on behalf of everyone who attended the 60th Birthday Luncheon on 31st March. Please pass on our congratulations and grateful thanks to all your staff for making this such a memorable occasion. The food was absolutely scrumptious with every last morsel consumed with great alacrity, the wine was deliciously tempting and the staff were very attentive yet unobtrusive and all set in a lovely large private room with beautiful flowers. It felt like a wonderful house party luncheon without any of the down sides of having to do the washing up once all the guests have gone!
We all enjoyed ourselves so much that we went away feeling that this should become an annual event but with everyone paying for themselves!
So once again do thank all your staff and hopefully we will see you again in the not too distant future...
12th April 2012
I just wanted to thank you and all the staff who worked so hard yesterday to give us such a memorable lunch. Thanks in particular to your efforts, everything worked out even better than I could have hoped for and my friends and family were extremely impressed by every last detail of your delightful Inn.
Thank you so much and my very best wishes.
We look forward to returning to the Noah’s Ark before too long.

Dear Amy, Tom, Nick, Candice, Tray, James and all the others behind the scenes,
Jonathan and I just wanted to say thank you so much for making last Saturday evening such a success for us. The room looked lovely and very welcoming, the food was delicious (and we have had many comments to that effect), and the service was good. You also dealt beautifully with the dietary needs (and discreetly too – no-one’s food looked different).
So...Thank you very much, all extremely relaxed, the time passed very quickly and all we had to do was ensure people enjoyed themselves which was not a difficult task!
With very best wishes
Lee and Jonathan

Hi Amy and Henry
Just a note to say thank you so much for Tuesday evening. We had a lovely time, the room looked so pretty and everyone said how much they enjoyed the meal. I had soup and turkey which were both delicious. The service was absolutely perfect, I've just realised I didn't even notice anyone serving, the food just appeared as if by magic. Well done.
Have a great Christmas!

11th December 2011
There is always a moment to say a huge thank you to you, Henry and the team for helping me make my 50th Birthday celebration such fun. My friends were so complimentary about everything the Noah’s Ark had to offer – from the perfect location, the relaxed atmosphere of the pub, the delicious paella, your friendly and attentive staff and the flowing booze! Everything just happened without any suggestion and I was so impressed by the lit fairy cakes just appearing at the right moment.
I am so glad I chose the Noah’s Ark and thank you again for a very happy evening and well done to all of you who made it that way for us.
With best wishes,
1st December 2011

Dear Amy and Henry
"I would just like to say a HUGE Thank you! for the wonderful wedding reception that was held in the Ark on Monday evening to celebrate Ian and Neli's wedding. The room and table looked just fantastic, the food was amazing (as usual) and the staff were so kind and attentive, I really couldn't have asked for more. It was so nice to be able to sit back, kick my shoes off relax and know that it wasn't me who was going to have to wash up afterwards!"
Again, thank you so much for such a wonderful evening.

Dear Henry and Amy
"I wanted to send you a proper thank you for all that you so generously arranged for us last Sunday 10th July. We were very touched that not only had you made the tented 'feasting area' look very welcoming and pretty, but allocated Abbie to us, it seemed, for our entire party. She was absolutely delightful and couldn’t do enough for us. The lunch with properly cooled champagne and wine was first class and everybody staggered home replete with so many delicious things to eat!"
It was a day to remember and thank you once again.
July 14th 2011

The two people who looked after us, a lovely young man and girl were just excellent - very professional, very attentive and very good. Top marks to them. The meal too was excellent Amy so just a big thank you to you all.
Will certainly be back next year as it is an annual event for us!"

"Overdue thanks for the lovely party last month. It went very well, the party room looked lovely, you kept us dry outside, the food was attractive and tasty.
I'm so pleased we decided to have our party at Noah's Ark. You were clear about the pricing, accommodated our requests, worked with us on any difficulties and were always there (or Tray) to reassure us about details. On the day of the party you yourself helped me put out the name invitations, and checked that we were happy with everything. Throughout the party we were well looked after. Our guests were enchanted with the village and with your pub and enjoyed the food.
Thanks so much."

"Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the absolutely lovely meal on Saturday and for all your help and patience leading up to it (my Mum said the sea bass was absolutely delicious). Couldn't have chosen a more perfect place for Andrew's 40th and we enjoyed it all immensely. The food was amazing and the best we've had in a long, long time. The Noahs Ark fully deserves its great reputation and more and we shall definitely be back as often as we can find excuses to come! Please thank the lovely young lady who looked after us so well too.
Thank you to you and your staff so much in helping to make our celebration extra special."

"What can I say – a truly amazing night and you and your team were absolutely fantastic. The whole evening ran like clockwork and that is thanks to your organisation and the team that helped out. It really was perfect from the Pimms outside in the garden, to the lovely set up of the room and the delicious food that everyone thought was amazing. I cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work which made my evening totally unforgettable.
Please thank all of your team from the serving staff (especially Tom who was a complete star all evening and couldn ’t have been more helpful and tolerated my demands to keep bringing more wine to the table!) to the chef and kitchen staff and of course you and Henry.
I do apologise for the slightly raucous end and the dancing on chairs etc – I’m hoping this didn’t offend anyone!
Thank you again, it was a truly special evening and I cannot tell you how much I appreciated everything you did to make it such a success."
7th June 2011
Hi Amy and Henry,

"Thank you so much for looking after us so well on Friday night. It was a lovely evening, the room looked gorgeous and I know you went to a great deal of trouble to make everything work for us. Everyone really enjoyed your wonderful food which was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious as ever. I so admire the way that you and your team always seem so relaxed and calm and thoroughly professional when you're dealing with annoying customers who can't read a menu properly and won't sit down!"
Very many thanks indeed

You are supported by a very nice and efficient team - they managed to feed a slightly inebriated rabble a delicious dinner in double quick time with many compliments.

11th October 2010
Charming old pub overlooking the village green with keen young licensees, real ales and enjoyable food. Picnic sets outside this tile-hung 16th-c village pub look over the village green and cricket pitch - it's a lovely spot. Inside, the enthusiastic young licensees have gently refurbished the bars and dining room keeping plenty of charm and character. The simple, traditional bar, bustling with chatting locals and their dogs at the weekend, has leather-topped bar stools by the counter where they serve Greene King IPA and Abbot and a changing guest beer on handpump, several wines by the glass and farm cider, and there are beams, a mix of wooden chairs and tables on the parquet flooring and an inglenook fireplace. Open right up its apex, the dining room is spacious and airy with church candles and fresh flowers on light wood dining chairs and tables and a smart but relaxed feel; a couple of comfortable sofas face each other in front of an open woodburning stove. The pub border terrier is called Gillie and visiting dogs are very welcome there are even dog biscuits behind the bar. There are more picnic-sets in a large side garden.
INDEPENDENT REVIEW - THE GOOD PUB GUIDE 2011
In an idyllic setting – beside village pond and churchyard, overlooking the cricket green – the Ark would restore anyone’s faith in the well-being of the English country pub. In this couple’s hands, the old village boozer has become a pub of charm; no more darts, but a surprise at every turn. From bar to cosy dining areas – and one barn-like room – are beams, floorboards, winter fires, traditional country furniture and a sprinkling of modern leather. The kitchen’s insistence on good-quality local seasonal produce results in a roll-call of British dishes, and the simple lunchtime bar menu is bolstered come evening by the likes of pan-fried wood pigeon breasts with sautéed savoy cabbage and crispy pancetta. A cottagey garden to the side and picnic tables out front complete the upbeat package.

Hi Amy & Henry
"Thank you so much for letting us come to your lovely pub for George's retirement 'do' in July. The relaxed atmosphere of space outside to meet each other, the typical pub atmosphere around the bar and use of the private function room made it a special venue for such an event. To top it all, the moreish buffet was flushed down with some rather pleasant local beers. When can I retire?"
"Thank you so much for making the West Sussex TVR Car Club so welcome last night. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, the food, service and the atmosphere were wonderful. We will definitely be back in the future for another great night out."

Dear Amy and the staff at the Noah’s
"Just a note to say a huge thank you for making it such a fabulous evening on November 7th! I really couldn’t have asked for a better 40th. All my friends have commented on the beautiful room, delicious food and warm and welcoming ambience. The sloe gin cocktails went down a treat and I think there were a few sore heads the next day – including mine!
Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to everyone involved."

"I just wanted to pass on to you both how very impressed I and all my guests were. I quote:
"How on EARTH did they produce such a wonderful dinner for 40 people at the same time with the lamb pink and perfectly cooked?"
"How were you so clever to find such an idyllic spot with the nicest staff and most welcoming venue I have ever been to?"
"How fabulous the Noah's Ark is, I would love to have my 40th there if I didn't live in Salisbury!"
"What a fabulous crew they are at your party spot, and the beer on tap was just sublime."
So from me and all my guests a very heartfelt thank you for being so lovely, so welcoming and for making it such a fabulous evening but all very effortless on my part. I really did appreciate it. And the cider champagne was a big hit too."

"We have just come away from having an absolutely wonderful meal at your beautiful pub. Having a birthday meal seemed a good idea so we came down this lunch time and enjoyed wonderful surroundings, a fantastic meal and excellent service.
Sally had the herb crusted port tenderloin whilst I opted for the Noah’s Ark meat platter.
They were both glorious and had us groaning in our seats from the visual and gastronomic aspects.
Can't wait until the next birthday celebration so we can come again."
