This is when the new Hickory's Smokehouse opens in Hutton and how to book a table

The new Hickory's Smokehouse in Hutton is just days away from opening and now taking bookings.

The American-themed restaurant will open at the former Anchor pub site on Monday, August 22 and reservations for lunch and dinner are already being made online.

>>>Here's what will be on the menu.

General manager Stewart McIntosh said: “We’re beyond excited to open, all the team are training at the moment and we cannot wait to throw open the doors, and start welcoming guests for real.

A sneaky peak of what's to come

"Whether you have visited Hickory’s before, tried our Hickory’s At Home or are a complete first timer, make sure you come down, say ‘Hi’ and check out the full Hickory’s experience for yourself..’

The restaurant - which is opening slightly later than planned - has created more than 80 hospitality jobs and can cater for 160 guests.

It will continue the company’s commitment of bringing guests a true slice of “Southern-style” hospitality.

BBQ fans are well catered for with a range of smokehouse classics, including pulled pork, ribs and Texas style brisket, all smoked “low and slow”, for up to 16 hours.

On July 26 the smoker arrived, having been shipped from Alamo, Tennessee.

The team posted: "It's now sitting pride of place in our kitchen ready for our Pitmasters to start smoking the ribs, wings & brisket for you all!"

The venue will also feature a bar, a heated outdoor veranda for year-round dining, and a cinema for children to watch free-of-charge.

The team say they have taken on the site after eyeing up Preston as their next desired location for some time, following the sucess of their Southport branch.
