Mothering Sunday Afternoon Tea

New! Afternoon Tea

To celebrate Mothering Sunday, The Ark is launching a delightful afternoon tea. Served 11am-5.30pm on Sunday 30th March, The Ark afternoon tea for two (from £19.95) includes: pot of tea, sandwiches with a choice of filling, selection of cakes, glass of sparkling wine (additional charge) and a pink rose for Mum’s to take away (Mother’s Day only). After Mother’s Day, afternoon tea will be available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (12.30-4.30pm) only. 


Since opening in December 2013, The Ark has established itself as one of Dorset’s premier family attractions and a firm favourite amongst local and visiting families. Providing an unforgettable fun-filled experience for both children and adults alike, the stunning new café and leisure attraction is located at the heart of historic Poole Park, with ample parking and all-weather facilities.


‘After an incredibly successful opening and initial trading period, we’re delighted to be launching two exciting new events. We’ve been thrilled with the support and custom we have received to date, and we continue to pride ourselves on offering the very best in family entertainment. Our Friday family fun nights offer exceptional value for money and an opportunity to explore everything The Ark has to offer, and our afternoon tea is a must! We look forward to continuing to welcome families from the Dorset area and beyond’ said Owner, Richard de Lisle.


The Ark has been specially designed to offer a friendly, welcoming atmosphere to parents as well as children. The light and airy café area boasts free wi-fi, newspapers and magazines, delicious homemade food and fresh coffee, roasted locally by Poole’s Beanpress coffee company (Little Red Roaster) and freshly ground onsite at The Ark. 

Open year round (except 25 Dec), The Ark provides fun family entertainment, rain or shine, for a full day or a few hours. Come on down and enjoy the fun!
