Blending variety, freshness and flair

Seasonal menus combine old favourites with innovative choices

Our Delicious menu offers flavoursome meals prepared fresh on site by our village chefs. With a choice of three main courses, including a vegetarian option, the aim is to tempt all taste buds. We also cater for special dietary requirements.

Delicious combines those good old favourites - comfort food - with innovative choices. Think roast chicken or baked teriyaki salmon with a soy and ginger glaze.

Our seasonal menu is always evolving as residents tell us what works, and what could be better. We serve up 120 different meals each month, so the same meal won't reappear for 4 weeks - unless of course it's back by popular demand.

Our ready-to-eat meals are nutritious and convenient

Just like our Delicious meals, our individually frozen meals are made from scratch using fresh, natural ingredients. The meals are blast frozen to lock in the flavour and the goodness.

The ready-to-eat meals are very reasonably priced and perfect for independent or serviced-apartment residents looking for convenience and great taste. 

Smaller meal options include: Macaroni cheese and cottage pie.

Larger meal options include: Beef cheeks, tarragon chicken and the lamb shank. 

Residents can purchase Delicious frozen meals from their village reception, shop, or café.

The main meal - the centrepiece of the day

At Ryman, community and friendship are a vital part of village life. Therefore, we’ve made the main meal the centrepiece of the day, providing the perfect setting for those moments of shared joy and laughter, where for many residents, coming together for a meal is a highlight.

Residents are fully catered for in our care centres, and our serviced-apartment residents enjoy a main meal as well as morning and afternoon tea. Independent residents are welcome to book a
meal with us any time. 

Friends and family can join residents at the village for a meal any time. Simply make a reservation at the village reception. 

And if you’d like to enjoy a special dinner with friends or family, why not come along to one of our monthly fine-dining evenings.
