The restaurant has undergone a total refurbishment completely transforming both inside & outside. You can expect a completely welcoming & relaxed space. From the Chef's bar, cosy booths and even party tables for when you get the family or gang together. For after work beers or even pre-dinner cocktails, head to the bar & join us for a drink - you're always welcome in our neighbourhood bar. The area will also be complete with TV screens showing popular American & UK sports. And, we'll be opening as the NFL season has just got underway, so let us be your new home for the NFL!

Younger guests are in for a treat...

Outside in the kids area there is plenty to keep the little ones entertained with their own play area.  And of course it wouldn’t be Hickory’s without a cinema room and Fro-Co Creation Station (the perfect after dinner treat). There is plenty to keep the little ones entertained.

You’ll always be welcome to join us just for drinks in the bar. Our impressive drinks list is bursting with interesting mixes and classic combos all paying a nod to our southern roots. We have an extensive collection of spirits to enjoy, including over 25 Bourbons that we’ve sipped, drank and collected from our road trips – we're pretty proud of our Bourbons. From easy drinking session ales (like our Hickory’s Pale Ale that’s brewed exclusively for us), to our selection of bottles and canned craft beers - there really is a beer for everyone. Our passionate bar teams are all a little bit crazy about cocktails, so you can look forward them too!
