Holsworthy is a tiny village in the deepest, darkest corner of Devonshire countryside. It's surrounded by picturesque rolling green hills and working farms, just as you'd expect from England, 'the green and pleasant land'. The village is just a few minutes from the Cornish border, and a short 15 minute drive will get you to the coast. There you can swim, surf and paddle in the Atlantic.

Tucked away on the edge of this charming village, along the main road heading out to Cornwall, is the Rydon Inn. It's a great place for the whole family to take a break, have a meal and enjoy a drink.

There is space for plenty of cars to park outside the entrance to The Rydon Inn. On entering, you'll find the atmosphere to be welcoming and cosy.

To the right is an alcove which is home to a pool table and to the left is a long bar which stocks a huge range of drinks. A series of rooms extends to the side, behind the bar. These all contain comfortable sofas as well as tables and chairs, along with a large fireplace. Back in front of the bar is an area with even more tables and chairs. In addition, The Rydon Inn has a large conservatory which reaches into the garden. This lets in an enormous amount of natural light, which makes for a lovely area to sit and enjoy a meal.

The conservatory has doors which lead out to a beautiful green harden, which does have a few picnic benches for outdoor dining. Although it is not owned by The Rydon Inn, the garden overlooks a lake, which just adds to the charm.

The food at The Rydon Inn is always delicious, offering something a little different from what you'd find at a lot of other restaurants. They use fresh, local produce, so it's really reassuring to know that they support their local community.

Being a family-run entreprise, the atmosphere at The Rydon Inn is very friendly. It's a suitable place for the whole family to go - both young and old. In fact, sometimes the owners' son can even be seen running around, livening up the place! The members of staff are always pleasant and smiling!

All in all, The Rydon Inn is a superb little eaterie which serves delicious food. It is perfectly located, with the countryside, seaside and nearby towns, and the lovely atmosphere is just a bonus. It is even possible to hire out the Rydon Inn as a place to hold a wedding reception, giving you a great, unique venue!
