A Warm Welcome


Ideally situated near the border between Devon and Cornwall on the outskirts of a beautiful little Devonshire market town called Holsworthy, The Rydon Inn is certainly set in the perfect surroundings for what it has to offer.
Whether you’re a local, on holiday or just passing through we can guarantee The Rydon Inn has something for you !

Feeling peckish or fancy a great meal ? Then come try something from our amazing menu. We can offer you outstanding home cooked pub food, serving everything from sandwiches to full roast dinners (Sunday Lunch only). Using only the best locally sourced produce, you will soon be satisfied by the true taste of the South West. Why not take a look at our online menu to see what we have to offer.

The true taste of the South West, The Rydon Inn prides itself on sourcing local ales and beers from local brewers including; Holsworthy Ales (Devon), Dartmoor Brewery (Devon), Otter Brewery (Devon), St Austell Brewery (Cornwall) and Sharp’s Brewery (Cornwall). This means that you will get the best Ales from local brewers giving you a one stop taste of the South West.

This building has seen many changes over its life time starting off as a Farm House owned by the Moore family. It has also been a theme park
with a ride on train before becoming a pub/restaurant, we are the third lucky owners to take it on.
We are researching into its history and if you are anything like us we find it fascinating.

The Rydon Inn welcomes all, is fully accessible for wheelchair users (Booking Advised)
