Blending variety, freshness and flair

Meals are a large part of a resident’s day, so the food has to be great. Mealtimes provide an event to look forward to and an opportunity to connect with others.

After listening to our residents, we captured the essence of what is important to them. We introduced Ryman Delicious, which offers flavourful meals made fresh on-site by our village chefs. With two main course choices plus a vegetarian option, the aim is to tempt all taste buds, and residents are telling us they love it. We can also cater for special dietary requirements.

The Delicious menu combines those good old favourites – comfort food – with innovative choices. Think roast chicken alongside slow-cooked pork and coconut curry.

Our seasonal menus are always evolving as our residents tell us what works, and what could be better. We serve up to 120 different meals each month, so the same meal does not appear for four weeks – unless of course it’s back by popular demand!

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!
