Emma and I went to Hickory's for a spot of lunch. Perfect day, perfect outdoor setting and definitely very good food.
Chef Jay arranged for us to try a range of starters and salads. And wow, some of them were the best we'd had in ages, notably the mushroom salmon salad and the gorgeous caprese. The Arabic mezzes were also very good, as was the calamari (light, crunchy and definitely not rubbery). The best of the mains were the Asian ones. The particularly Nasi Goreng was spot on. But for me (shockingly) it was the desserts that were the surprise: beautifully plated, tasty and a lot better than many five star places.
All in all, it's fair to say Hickory's has upped its game considerably. It's the time of the season for Hickory's and with a fab 20% discount, it's gotta be on your list this week! NB no discount available this F1 weekend
