Ryan's does a great 2 courses for £10 menu with a great amount of choice. The food is good and tasty. Really good 'pub grub'. Service was a little slow however with only 3 waiting staff looking after a busy restaurant this was understandable!

I would recommend the fish and chips and the sticky toffee pudding for dessert! It was delicious and do not miss the 2 courses for 10£ dinner special. I also had a carrot and coriander soup that was exceptional!

Went with a LS voucher, hadn't booked as thought this was a bar with food. Nice bar downstairs and large restaurant upstairs, the waiter made sure he got us a table which was great rather than being turned away. Our deal was for a beer and a build your own burger, the 4 step build process was interesting and had... More

Ryan's is a cute little restaurant on the main Lisburn Road. There is a bar downstairs and restaurant upstairs - I recommend booking if planning a large group or weekend visit as it gets tight. They offer cocktails, full drinks service and a menu that offers any two courses (starter + main or main + dessert) for £10 (steak and... More

six children ate for free, two courses for a tenner for the ten adults, spicy chicken wings for starters are a must, good choice of mains, well cooked and presented, the desserts are so good, service was very good, anything to please the customer, looked after the kids which made the grown ups happy.

We have been visiting ryans for the past few years, always been a fan of their food and service but upon bringing family here on a weeknight we were left embarrassed after raving about how good the food is. The team working that night seemed to be in need of a fourth staff member to help as service was slow.... More

This was a mid afternoon visit so on entry the place was quite quiet. The approach to the entrance was clean and tidy and they had posters displaying two courses for £10 served all day. On entering the premises (Two adults, 1 child) there was an instant greeting by a friendly barmaid. Upon enquiry for a table she was unsure... More
