They have about 8 bottled craft beers in a fridge near the floor where it's hard to see. There is no information for the customer in order to make an informed choice. They have a beer menu but it has nothing about the craft beers in it. Maybe Guiness have instructed bars to hide information about the competition so that... More

This is a nice cheap and cheerful place. The staff are really friendly, the food is great, you can get 2 courses for £10. at a weekend this place does get busy so try and book if you can, however the staff will try and accommodate everyone who walks through the door. Ryans also has a great selection of beer... More

Used to visit Ryans every now and again but haven't been there for a long time. Shown to a table with dirty place mats and missing cutlery. We decided to get the 2 courses for £10 deal, I don't think they had it last time we were here, we shouldn't have bothered, food was of poor quality and bland ,... More

I found the food average I wondered if they used packet mix for their sauces etc. the red curry was less than spicy for example, the service however was great, the staff very friendly. I think it is time to repaint the toilets, very "rustic" for want of a better word they need a revamp. Seemed a very popular place... More

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
