Our people at Hickory are a big part of why Eskmills Venue has such a great reputation as a location for weddings and parties.
From each experienced and calm-no-matter-what wedding planner and inspirational designers to the super-talented kitchen team and ultra-professional front of house staff (not to mention our resident cocktail supremo behind the bar), it’s the people we employ who are the real icing on the cake of your event.
Eskmills Venue is the headquarters of Hickory as well as a leading Scottish venue. Our state of the art kitchens are here, and our office support team, so it’s a busy hub of activity. When you come and look round you might spot Brian, our MD or Steph our Marketing Director, as well as an army of top-notch chefs, event managers, accounts team, logistics and planning people.
There is, however, a wedding planner who you will get to know very well if you book an event with us…
