We haven't been to this pub under its current owners who took it on in 2009, so it was fantastic to see that all the best bits are relatively unchanged, but the service and food were fantastic. The staff couldn;t be more helpful and attentive,even when it was very busy, and the food was reasonably priced and delicious, with lovely... More

A lovely pub with plenty of space between tables, pleasant staff and a great, tasty meal which was vegetarian but there are many other options

Just love the way that the roast is served......... No matter which meat choice you make there is a generous helping and a wonderful selection of tasty vegetables. We have enjoyed many Sunday lunches here and to date have not been disappointed. Would not hesitate to recommend .

We booked here on the advice of friends. Our party of 6 arrived at 8pm to be shown to very small corner table on the first floor. Felt very hot and claustrophobic. We wandered whether to leave and go home to order a takeaway but decided to stay. Shortly after this decision, the party at a much larger adjoining table... More

The Rydon pub never fails to please with its varied menu, good beer and wine list and friendly helpful staff. I've never had a bad meal here. They also do an excellent take away thai menu

Another fantastic roast at the Rydon it truly is the only place to go on a Sunday or any other day of the week for that matter! Full attention given to every element of lunch, succulent meat, a fantastic array of variety and flavour in the veg dish, (no soggy under coloured over cooked veg here) yorkshire pudding served with...
