Our Proudest Day!

We are beyond proud that we have made the Top 100 ‘Best Large Companies’ and that we are one of the best places to work in the UK.

And, not only that we were named  the “Best Improved”  and one of the best hospitality businesses to work for in the UK. What makes it even more special is that it is the honest thoughts and views of our team that got us here – the heart beat of our business who make us who we are..

Recognised regionally...

We also made the lists regionally in the Midlands and Wales, and a 5th place in the North West. In a year when we had to close our doors to our guests we came together as the Hickory’s family, supported each other when times were hard, laughed and had fun in new ways, challenged ourselves to raise money for Cash For Kids & our local communities (we’re still blown away by the £72,000 that was raised) and had honest & open conversations with each other. Our founder Neil sums up what it means to us...

"We are so incredibly pleased to have been awarded such amazing positions in both the national and regional lists. To say this is the proudest day in our company’s history is an understatement. Our teams are literally the life-blood of our business. Lots of restaurants serve great food but we know that it’s the passion, creativity, personality and hard work of our teams that have helped us to get where we are today. I want to thank each and every one of them for every shift, every smile and for sticking by us on this journey.”

We’re amongst good company from fellow restaurant brands too; Flat Iron, Hawksmoor, Dishoom, Mowgli, Peach Pubs, Paragon Pubs & The Coaching Inn all featuring on the national list. So good to see that the hospitality industry is being recognised as an incredible place to work. It doesn’t stop here though we will continually strive to be even better as we love our team and love what we do….

All the family back together...

And, what better way to celebrate than by having all our team back, having all our restaurants fully open and by welcoming all our wonderful guests back. We’ve got exciting plans for the rest of the year in all our Hickory’s, plus we’ll be opening in Wilmslow very soon and later in the year in Nutall, Nottingham, so if you or someone you know loves the idea of joining the Hickory’s family we’d love to hear from you.
