Enjoy the perfect festive gathering or seasonal event with help from Hickory's catering services
Hickory offer a range of catering services, providing everything you need for your festive gathering. From bespoke table settings to the transformation of entire rooms into winter wonderlands, a team of events staff are at your disposal to create the perfect seasonal event.
Start your Christmas party off on the right foot with Hickory's range of classic cocktails, mixed with a seasonal twist. Festive tipples are professionally shaken by Hickory's cocktail specialists and are sure to get the guests talking. The seasonal menu features the White Christmas with cream and gingerbread and the Feelin' Festive with punchy cranberry, raspberry and mint.
Hickory's seasonal canapes deliver the best of Scotland's local produce in delightful bite-sized dishes. Rich liver paté comes with a zesty kumquat compote, while Belhaven's finest smoked trout is served with crisp Granny Smith apples. There are plenty of vegetarian options, like tiny quiches of beetroot, orange, cinnamon and sprouts. For a sweet after, mini gin, elderflower and cranberry jellies will get the crowds feeling festive.
For office parties and private dinners, Hickory offer fully catered three-course meals. Drawing on local ingredients and specialities like duckling, Ayrshire turkey or Shetland salmon, Hickory creates bespoke menus for large, private gatherings. Fully-catered events feature precision organisation and design.
To complement their luxurious menus, Hickory have partnered with some of the most opulent and unique venues in the Edinburgh area. Stately homes, gin distilleries and private libraries offer something a little different this winter.
This 16th century castle is on the outskirts of Dalkeith, and offers a lavish backdrop for any event. Floor to ceiling windows, Baroque furniture and oil paintings create a sense of old world splendour in the grand dining hall and drawing rooms.
Home of the ancient family of Bruce, Broomhall House lies just ten minutes from the Forth Bridges. The magnificent dining room can comfortably seat 70 people and its place in Scottish history mirrors Hickory's focus on Scottish produce.
Right in the heart of Edinburgh, Holyrood Distillery is a 180-year-old building that's recently been given a new lease on life. The modern space inside houses dramatic metal gin distillers and the decor is distinctly industrial-chic. The perfect place for a trendy, festive event with flashy cocktails and canapes.
Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh
Dining amongst shelves of leather-bound books sounds is a fairy tale made reality at the Royal College of Physicians on Edinburgh's Queen Street. The venue has a distinct feel of bookish opulence, which makes it a stunning choice for a Christmas celebration.
Located on the outskirts of Edinburgh, Newhall Estate has a decadent room for every occasion. The smaller Sunroom is ideal for intimate gatherings, while the Coach House and Dining Room can hold grand gatherings of over 100 people.
For sumptuous menus that focus on local produce, pop-up cocktail bars run by specialist shakers and venues that offer something a bit different this Christmas, book your event with Hickory. Find out more at hickoryfood.co.uk.
