I have dined at Ryans a lot of times and always enjoyed the experience. However this time, not! Sticky placemats, sticky table, sticky olive oil bottle, sticky menu and sticky salt and pepper. Waiting staff were friendly and helpful as usual. I really feel the food standard has slipped quite a bit. I had fish and chips. Mushy peas were... More

I come here all the time with my colleagues and we wouldn't go anywhere else for our nights out and dinners. Brilliant food and amazing value. Staff are amazing as well.

I had a beer at the bar and was very... More

Visited on a Thursday night , had drinks round the fire and the famous chicken wings which are top notch!! Good vibe and they have such a decent playlist of music on in the background!

We were visiting the area for a weekend away and popped in for a drink and ended up spending the evening there including a 2 course meal for 2 for £10. Very impressed will definitely return.

I really enjoyed my meal here, 2 courses for £10 usually has a pretty basic menu but I thought they had a perfect choice of foods! Really enjoyed it and the whole buzz of the place was great. Although it was busy nothing was too much for the staff!

This was my first time to Ryan's bar and I was impressed. They had a great 2 course for £10 deal which my partner and I made use of. It is very much pub grub sort of food, so if that's what you are looking for then it's perfect. I liked the edgy feel of the pub and staff also... More
