Food & Drink

A big day out at the zoo can work up an appetite so we have a number of food outlet options to suit your needs.

The Food Barn

The Food Barn has recently undergone a full refurbishment and now offers a more extensive Breakfast and Lunch menu and freshly ground coffee whilst soaking up the view of the zoo.

A mouthwatering selection of hot meals, salads, sandwiches and freshly baked pizzas.


Ice Cream Parlor

Stock up during your visit and enjoy a range of farmhouse ice creams and treats!

The Trunk Stop Cafe

Eat on the go from the Trunk Stop Cafe. Add to your picnic with a fresh coffee and some tasty takeaway treats next to Elephant Eden.

The Bear Necessities

The Bear Necessities kiosk is situated alongside our Andean Adventure enclosure and a large picnic area full of plenty of picnic tables. Treat yourself to an ice cream, hot snacks and drinks or a sandwich. Visit the Bear Necessities to see what is on offer today.

Picnic Areas

We know that some of our guests love to bring their own picnics, so we have plenty of designated picnic tables around the zoo to do just that! Add to your picinc with some tasty treats from one of our many kiosks!

Gift Shop

We have a Gift Shop with hundreds of wonderful gifts located in our farm courtyard. From pocket-money priced mementos of your day at the zoo, to Noah's Ark branded souvenirs such as mugs and clothing to take home with you to as a lasting memory - you'll have lots to choose from!

Purchase Animal and Bird Food here in bags to feed a variety of our animals including Deer, Camels, Llamas, Goats and Ducks!

Visitors with disabilities

We work to ensure access for everyone and although Noah's Ark is built on a working farm, most areas are wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of wheelchairs available to hire for free.

Noah's Ark is delighted to have won 'Access for All' at the Bristol Tourism and Hospitality Awards 2012.

Please contact us to book a wheelchair or to make enquiries about your visit.

The Ark Arena has a hearing Induction Loop installed. We have a loud, clear PA system and make use of visual aids including highlighted steps, high contrast signs and painted picnic tables.

We welcome assistance dogs and water can be provided.
