The summer of ’18 has been perhaps our best ever, with some cracking contracts all over the country for Hickory Bars and our catering services. Of special mention are the book festivals in Edinburgh and the Borders; the Braemar Gathering, the Royal Highland Show and two big sporting events: the European Golf Team Championships at Gleneagles and the European 2018 Championships in Glasgow. We’re so proud of our dedicated and supremely professional teams, who always hit the ground running and ensure everything goes according to plan.
Forgive us for a little show off moment, but we had to share the kind words three of our clients were good enough to send us, when it was all over . . .
“During the event, Hickory were completely self sufficient and had clearly spent a great deal of time creating a detailed and comprehensive plan. The quality of the food and service were very high and received daily praise.
I would highly recommend Hickory – nothing appeared a challenge to them and they had an energy to surpass expectations that was great to see.”
Kit Gartrell, Assistant Championship Director, European Tour
“The team were a pleasure to work with throughout, were very professional, knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. Ultimately this made our job as the clients an easy one. I would highly recommend anyone to work with Hickory and wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again in the future for any catering or bar projects.”
Lorraine Steel, CCW Cluster Manager, Glasgow 2018 European Championships
“Hickory Bars have been an integral operator at The Royal Highland Show for over three years. The Botanical Garden Bar has grown in popularity with Royal Highland Show visitors since its inception in 2016. The bar’s design successfully combines both modern and rustic décor that complements the relaxed and welcoming ambience that Hickory has created in a busy area of the Showground.
I hope to continue to build on this great relationship, for the foreseeable future.”
Stuart Heywood, Facilities & Services Manager, Royal Highland Show
