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 options, 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.

The main meal - the centrepiece of the day

At Ryman, community and friendships 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.

Our serviced apartment residents enjoy their main meal at midday plus morning and afternoon tea, which is all included in their resident package, whilst care centre residents are fully catered for.

Delicious menus are also available to independent residents, so when a night off cooking is in order they can simply make a reservation. Or for an evening out, they might like to come along to one of our monthly fine-dining events. Village chefs relish the opportunity to delight residents and because of this, fine-dining evenings are always a big hit. Therefore, it pays to book early to secure a ‘Delicious’ evening out!
