GREENE KING has confirmed plans to bring a Hickory's Smokehouse to Wrexham. 

The leading pub chain, who announced they were investing in Hickory’s last year are identifying sites it already owns in its estate that would be a perfect fit for Hickory’s.

The conversion would see the Squire Yorke pub located on Sontley Road, Coed-y-Glyn transform into the popular chain. 

One of the leading and most popular authentic BBQ smokehouse restaurant operators in the UK, Hickory's currently has 17 restaurants across the Midlands and North West.

The family smokehouse and BBQ restaurant, has a strong focus on quality food with meats slow cooked for up to 12 hours in smokers specially imported from southern states in America. 


A spokesperson for Greene King said: "We can confirm that we are planning for the Squire Yorke 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.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Hickory’s original UK site is located 11 miles north of the proposed Wrexham site, at The Groves in Chester after opening its doors back in 2010. 

The conversion to Hickory’s is expected to significantly increase the number of people employed at the venue.

More information on the investment will be released by Hickory’s closer to reopening.
