Meals are a large part of a resident’s day and so the food has to be great. Mealtimes provide an event to look forward to and an opportunity to connect with others.
With input from our residents, we introduced Ryman Delicious, which offers flavourful meals made fresh on-site by our village chefs. With three main course choices, including 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 menus combine those good old favourites – comfort food – with innovative choices. Think roast chicken or baked teriyaki salmon with a soy and ginger glaze.
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 reappear for 4 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. This is all included in their resident package. Care centre residents are fully catered for.
Delicious menus are also available to independent residents, so if they don't feel like cooking they can simply make a reservation at the village reception.
Or for an evening out, residents might like to come to one of our monthly fine-dining evenings, and enjoy a special dinner with friends or family.
These events are always popular, so booking early is recommended to secure a Delicious evening out!
