Hickory's, Chester | brunch & lunch menu 2024

If you're looking for a taste of the USA, then you can't go wrong with Hickory's! I was recently invited to the Chester location, situated on the River Dee, to try out their newly updated brunch and lunch menu - and it didn't disappoint...

We visited on a Saturday, and it was busy but not *too* busy - the staff were attentive and efficient, which was great, and we were overall really pleased. They seated us in a booth and brought over some water and popcorn, while we perused the menu to decide what to order. When our waitress, Ruby, came back to take our drinks order she asked if we wanted a little masterclass at the bar so we could learn to make them ourselves - and of course, we couldn't turn that down!

So I headed behind the bar with barman Johnny to make a Tip-Top Triple Choc milkshake for my fiancée Kate and a frozen pornstar martini for me. It was so much fun and just made our visit a bit more special, and I believe this is something anyone can do - not just because I was there for my blog. So definitely ask if you're interested, then enjoy your yummy creations...

For food, I ordered off the brunch menu and I went for pancakes with Louisiana fried chicken; there was a huge range of options, and this just really called out to me. Kate was going to order the Pastrami & Pickle Toasted Sub off the new sub 'n' soda menu, but sadly the deal only runs during the week - it's £11.99 for a sandwich and homemade soda, though, so well worth keeping in mind if you visit Monday-Friday. Kate wasn't too disappointed though as she instead ordered the double Oklahoma Smash Burger and fries which she loved.

My pancakes were fluffy and delicious, and the fried chicken was very spicy but still super tasty - and the maple syrup helped! I couldn't not order sides as well, and opted for the mac & cheese as well as the star of the show: poutine tater tots. They're essentially just tater tots with cheese and chicken gravy but my GOD they were delicious and soooooo moreish.

The ambience in the restaurant was just great, with country music playing through the speakers and the staff decked out in checked shirts and varsity jackets. Both of the managers on shift came to say hello - shoutout to Kim and Matt who were just great! Hickory's in Chester also has a little cinema inside, playing kids films, so little ones can be entertained while waiting for their food; a genius idea if you ask me.

Good hearty food in a stunning location - what more could you ask for? Everything was delicious and the prices aren't too bad either, so if you're looking for somewhere nice for lunch in Chester then have a look at Hickory's for sure!
