Arrived late just after 2pm the place was very busy. They said we could have something quick as the kitchen had closed. The setting is delightful sitting in conservatory with views across the lake. Well kept bitter.

Very tasty food. Portion sizes are large so don't over stretch yourself like I did. Locally sourced steak was delicious and prawns to start were lovely. I really didn't need biscuits and cheese so couldn't finish it. Excellent valu for money.

Lunch today, we ordered 1 large and 1 small deep fried fish and "proper"chips with mushy peas. The chips were ordinary, factory produced and very greasy. Previously they had been hand cut. The small fish had about a cubic centimetre of fish which wasn't cooked....still translucent. The mushy peas tasted as if someone had sweetened them! We returned the small... More

We visited this restaurant/pub at Christmas and once again it did not fail to impress us at what is normally a hectic time. Good food, hot, well cooked, appetising and well priced. Good staff, good service with a smile and we were well looked after. We have been many times and would recommend without hesitation.

We were searching for a local inn to book a Christmas lunch for four. A web search suggested many locals provide a cooked Christmas Dinner but lighter snacks or limited menu on weekday lunchtimes. I called the Rydon Inn, and they were happy to provide a lunch from the evening Christmas menu if we prebooked choices. I thought this was... More

The Rydon Inn is a converted traditional Devon Long House, it has been beautifully developed, with high vaulted ceilings exposing all the beam work in the main pub area, this also includes an unconventional thatched bar. The idealiac conservatory eating area over looks our large landscaped gardens and peaceful lake which houses outdoor seating for those long summer evenings. There is a pool table to keep you and the kids entertained. If you would like something a little more private we have our restaurant in the original part of the Devon Long House, which is ideal for more secluded smaller group meetings or dinners.
