Hickory’s has confirmed it is to open a new Smokehouse in North East Wales.

A Greene King spokesperson told our sister site “We can confirm that we are planning for the Squire Yorke Pub and Carvery to be transformed into a Hickory’s Smokehouse for Wrexham.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We are still in the process of notifying the team at the pub of this exciting development so will not be confirming any further details publicly at this stage until those briefings are completed. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The Squire Yorke will remain open and trading as normal for several more months before any changes start to take place.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The first ever Hickory’s is located 11 miles north of the planned Wrexham site, at The Groves in Chester, that opened back in 2010. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Since then Hickory’s has grown into a leading authentic BBQ smokehouse restaurant operator in the UK, with 17 restaurants across the Midlands and North West. It is a family friendly smokehouse and BBQ restaurant, with a strong focus on food quality with meats slow cooked for up to 12 hours in smokers specially imported from the southern states. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Guests are offered unique dining experiences within the restaurant, from chef’s bars to wraparound verandas, and children are equally looked after with their own cinema rooms and outside play areas. The Chester location is famed for it’s NFL Superbowl party, and sports bar setup. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

In October 2022 it was announced that Greene King was investing in Hickory’s to help build it into a national dining brand – and part of that involved Greene King identifying sites it already owns in its estate that would be a perfect fit for Hickory’s. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The Squire Yorke is one such location, being a Greene King pub. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Greene King tell us that when the conversion to Hickory’s takes place it is expected to significantly increase the number of people employed at the venue. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
