One might say group dining is a specialty of Rice House considering the restaurant is the reception location of choice for indoor celebrations at Barnsley Resort. Comprising two large, rectangular dining rooms that are visually joined by a wall of white-paned windows, the intimate space can comfortably seat 80 guests. Smaller groups, such as private birthday parties, might consider booking just the sun porch, where a lit fire and doors that open to the herb garden make for festive surroundings. For groups of 10 or fewer, the private dining rooms include the Rose Room, a dainty room with hardwood floors, burgundy walls, white wainscoting and a brick fireplace, and the Lily Room, a meadow-facing room with great views of the Forbes Travel Guide recommended hotel’s historic ruins.
