Ryhall is a small village in the county of Rutland, England. Located close to the eastern boundary of the county, about 4 miles north of Stamford. It is bounded to its west by the A6121 main road from Stamford to Bourne and on the other three sides by the River Gwash , although some development has spilled over the river to the north and out along the Essendine road.
There is an early 13th century village church, St John the Evangelist. The exterior has a number of interesting carved figures. The southern entrance has a porch with a room over it, originally for the priest, now called the Parvis Room. It is built on the site where St Tibba, a 7th century nun, is believed to have lived.
The village also has a Methodist Chapel, and two pubs, The Millstone Inn and The Green Dragon.
There is a general store and sub-post office, and a butchers shop.
The football club, Ryhall United, is currently (2005) in the Premier Division of the Peterborough and District Football League .
