We’ve Been Crowned Best Large Company to Work For!

Best Large Companies To Work For

We are beyond proud and thrilled to have been crowned the ‘Best Large Company To Work For in the UK’ for 2022!

What makes it most special is that it is the honest thoughts and views of our team that have got us here – the heartbeat of our business who make us who we are.

Our Incredible Team

‘We are very honoured and proud to have been recognised as the No.1 Best Large Company to work for in 2022. This accolade is based on feedback from our incredible team, who really are at the heart of what we do here at Hickorys Smokehouse. We will never stop listening to their feedback, learning from them, and striving to be a better place to work.’


It's been a busy couple of years and our teams have worked hard welcoming our guests and delivering an incredible experience, but we have been equally committed in looking after our team. With a focus on wellbeing from monitoring the hours all team work to help them achieve a work life balance, along with a 24-hour helpline, an increased focus on mental health and a dedicated Training Academy to supper development, we are trying to break the mould of the reputation in hospitality.

It doesn’t stop here though we will continually strive to be even better as we love our team and love what we do. We’re partway through our restaurant roadshows where every team member has the opportunity to sit and talk individually with our founder and owners, about how they are feeling and what we can do better. We learn so much in this one-on-one approach and get ready to act on what our team tell us.

"We have got an exciting year ahead of us, with new restaurants opening and lots of events planned but with our team behind us we have the confidence to smash 2023. I want to thank every one of our team, for every shift, every smile, every guest they make happy and for sticking by us on this journey.”
