These are challenging times for everyone in the events and hospitality business and our heart goes out to all those who work in our industry.

Our people are the most important part of our business, so we are looking after our staff while we get through these challenging times. We wanted to let our corporate clients, brides and grooms, private party people and all our suppliers know that while the Hickory kitchen, operations and logistics departments, and all our venues, are sadly temporarily closed, our planning teams are still working hard remotely on events that need to be re scheduled.

We understand how tough it is to have to postpone your wedding, business conference or 60th birthday party when you’ve spent months preparing, but don’t worry.  When all this is over we promise we’ll be ready and waiting to give your special day an extra sprinkling of Hickory magic.

Food is our watchword and we think we’re all in need of a bit of comfort at the moment, so look out for some gorgeous seasonal recipes from our chefs as they cook up a storm in their home kitchens, keeping the Hickory foodie vibe alive and well and bringing you some cheering flavours as you work from home/attempt to marshal kids/watch your 7th Netflix box set in a row. You can keep up to date with all our ideas and cooking inspiration on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

And if you’re still at the planning stage we’ll be showcasing some of our extraordinary venues and scrumptious signature dishes (and just possibly the odd cocktail) over the next wee while to give you lots of ideas for that mood board. Because let’s face it, we all need a bit of inspiration and excitement right now.

Stay safe – we can’t wait to see you all.

Love from all of us at Hickory ❤️
