“St Patrick's Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

We came here on St Patrick's Day for Sunday Lunch as I'd heard lots of good things about Rice's well we weren't disappointed excellent one of the best Sunday lunches I've ever had. We normally like to go to the Whistledown Hotel in Warrenpoint but this place is right up there with it and a lot closer to home.

The food was that good on the way out we booked in again for Easter Sunday and I'm looking forward to it already, keep up the good work Rice's.

“Hidden gem!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

Recently travelled through poyntspass and was recommended rices hotel by a friend. We entered the busy bar area and were greeted straight away by a friendly waiter. Lovely cosy atmosphere. We ordered from the 2courses 10pound menu which had a great choice, and from the regular menu which had food that sounded delicious! We shared a starter which was duck spring rolls-huge portion! Very yummy. Then our main arrived. Steak (biggest steak ive seen) and burger with chips. The steak was cooked to perfection and the pepper sauce was out of this world! The burger was delicious-we could hardly move after it but had to order dessert! Lime leaf and orange creme brulee. Absolutely fantastic! Will def b back..brill price and friendly staff. Def a hidden gem!!! Well done rices!
