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

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.

Was recommended to Ryan's recently. I went as a solo, found it unusual to find the way in with Smokers. the Decor was average at best. went upstairs and was told they were busy and it would be 40 mins ( Restaurant half full), was told I could eat downstairs. I had a beer at the bar and was very... More
