Now Open in Horbury!

Wakefield has been on our "wish-list" for some time so we're thrilled to have found the perfect spot.

Find us in Horbury just off Bennett Drive (former Malt House) – only 5 miles from the centre of Wakefield.

Family-Friendly Restaurant

The whole family has been thought of at Hickory’s Horbury. With a range of seating from cosy booths to party tables for groups to enjoy, plus our Chef’s Bar - quite possibly the best seat in the house.

Cosy Booths

As for the food, you know what to expect...authentic southern style barbecue including hand-pulled pork, fall-off-the-bone ribs & juicy brisket, all smoked 'low and slow' for up to 16 hours. And, of course epic burgers, steaks, subs along with vegetarian & vegan dishes! Just make sure you leave room for dessert. Don't forget our Kids Menu too, packed with the right balance of treats, healthy options & fun.

Smokehouse Favourites & BBQ Classics.

You will also be welcome to join us just for drinks in the bar. We'll have an extensive spirits collection - we’re pretty proud of our Bourbons - we have over 25 to try that we’ve sipped, drank and collected from our road trips. From easy drinking session ales (like our Hickory’s Pale Ale that’s brewed exclusively for us) and our cask ales, to our selection of bottles and canned craft beers - there really is a beer for everyone.

From Cocktails to Milkshakes, & a whole lot more

Our passionate bar teams are all a little bit crazy about cocktails! Our impressive drinks list is bursting with interesting mixes and classic combos all designed to pay a nod to our southern roots.

Inspired by a trip to South Carolina we have a wraparound veranda for drinking and dining outside. In the Southern States the veranda or porch is not just a place, it’s a state of mind. Designed as an extension of the home, it’s traditionally a place where the best conversations happen and where relaxation is a must.

Our outside area has plenty of seating for dining and drinking - whatever the Wakefield weather has to offer. And of course it wouldn’t be Hickory’s without the cinema room - so plenty to keep the little ones entertained.

We're looking for team to bring our smokehouse to life - we have an amazing in-house training team who will really help our new team to fulfil their potential, whatever their background. We are passionate about finding local hospitality stars of tomorrow and supporting them in their development - if that sounds like you please get in touch by emailing us at



We can't welcome you all!
