Hickory's is truly family-friendly with a dedicated kids menu, designed by a team of Mum's that offers a mix of healthy food, favourites and treats. The restaurant boasts a cinema room to keep the little ones entertained along with table top activities and yard games. With a neighbourhood bar with an impressive cocktail list along with a wide selection of beers and craft ales drinkers are always welcome in the bar.
