My husband and I visited on Sunday evening. From the moment we arrived the service was amazing. We waited in the bar area for our table, special thanks to the bar man who made me a special non alcoholic cocktail as I'm pregnant. Even though there was none on the menu he made me something anyway with flavours I liked.... More

Went here for breakfast as we could smell it from the Roman Gardens and it smelled amazing! The breakfast was very nice, American themed with options such as waffles with chicken and bacon, shakes and breakfast juices. There is also slightly safer options such as muesli and yoghurt for breakfast or bacon and egg/ sausage muffin too. It's definitely worth... More

This establishment is one I have visited several times. It has a lovely setting by the river Dee and a fantastic atmosphere. The food is always lovely, well prepared and reasonably priced and the service is usually good. However, I did encounter a rude barman on my last visit. Despite this I will continue to visit as on the whole... More

We visited Chester for my partners birthday. We stayed in a lovely hotel (Hartford hall hotel) and came to this smokehouse for dinner. We was there on a Saturday night so had to wait a while for a seat, however the bar and drinks selection was enough to keep us occupied!! We sat in the outside area which was lovely,... More

Enjoyed a really well-cooked and tasty Sunday pre-booked lunch at Hickories of Chester. Arrived to find a bustling and extremely busy restaurant. Initially a little concerned about the level of noise, but shown to a rather secluded alcove containing just a table for four. Both couples (2 drivers) opted for non-alcoholic cherry soda - glad we did because it was... More

Had lunch here yesterday. It's set in The Groves, which is a great location for people watching if it's nice enough to sit outside. We were lucky and the weather was gorgeous, we had a half hour wait for a table and the staff ran an efficient waiting list to make sure people were seated as quickly as possible. They... More

Description
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.
