Southern-barbecue style group Hickory’s Smokehouse has taken on a former Marston’s pub, The Malt House in Horbury, taking the number of sites for the privately-owned group to 16.

The venue will be given a full refurbishment, both inside and out, that will include a new open kitchen and chef’s bar, along with a dining space for up to 150 guests. There will also be a cinema room for children and dedicated bar area.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be launching in west Yorkshire and are really looking forward to meeting with local people and getting to know the neighbourhood,” says Hickory’s Smokehouse founder Neil McDonnell.

“Wakefield has been on our ‘wish-list’ of locations for some time now but as always it was really important to find the right site, so we are delighted to have acquired the Malt House.

“Our other restaurants have been embraced wholeheartedly by the local community, so coming to Horbury is genuinely exciting for us all. Our ambition is to create something truly special, and we are looking forward to becoming part of the community.”

Hickory’s has a number of venues across the north west and Midlands, including Chester, Rhos-on-Sea, Wilmslow, Shrewsbury, Worcester and most recently Nottingham.

The company has yet to announce an official opening date, but hopes to have completed the refurbishment in early Spring.
