Hickory’s Smokehouse is Chester’s authentic American BBQ. Here you can enjoy a traditional style of cooking that has its roots in the US, but that we think deserves to be just as popular over here. Our menu offers two styles of BBQ. The southern-style ‘Smoker’ BBQ uses slow, wood-fired cooking in our specially imported American smoker oven. The northern-style ‘Yankee’ BBQ is cooked over sizzling hot coals. Both styles create unbelievably tender, delicious meat and fish.

I visited this place for the first time today for a meal with my husband. We had been recommended Hickorys by friends and had heard a lot of good things about the place. We had seen good reviews on trip advisor and were really looking forward to our trip. Tonight's trip to Hickorys was perfect, we were both seriously impressed... More

I absolutely love this place!! Great atmosphere, friendly staff, quick service and reasonably priced considering what you get!! I had the pulled pork which was done perfectly. I also had the bread and butter pudding which was lovely! I'm looking forward to going back soon and trying the cocktails! I'd recommend making a reservation as it can get very busy!... More

A group of us visited for lunch before we went off for Chester races. Served straight away, and had a table outside overlooking the river Dee. Extensive menu choice and at a reasonable price. Great food along with good service. Bar area shows live sport too.

Finally went here after lots of recommendations from friends. Couldn't ask for more. The bar area was good where we had a nice cocktail before our table was ready. The food was amazing and portions generous (we had a smokehouse platter cause we couldn't decide so went for a variety - there's lots of other things I'd love to try... More

We had been looking forward to visiting Hickorys for a while and it was to be the highlight of our trip to Chester. When we got there we ordered cocktails which were fab and we found the drinks menu to be very varied. We had a table booked for 8pm but because we arrived around 7pm Hickorys sat us down... More

My daughter celebrated her 15th birthday with friends. They had independently gone to the restaurant and were all made to feel so welcome. The waitress made a personal effort to make her feel at easy and asked her questions about her birthday. The food was great too and all the girls enjoyed themselves and were very complimentary about the whole... More
