Hickory Restaurant

Our Hickory restaurant is one of the best eateries in Nairn, showcasing the best of Scotland's local produce, in the stylish surroundings of leather, marble, velvet and wood.

Floor-to-ceiling windows celebrate the shoreline panorama from morning to night, from breakfast to dinner. We find our inspiration in local Scottish produce: local catches of scallops and fish regularly feature on that evening’s menu.

Dining in Hickory

Seafood is locally-landed and meat comes from the Crerar Home Farm pedigree herds. Steaks are dry aged for 28 days before meeting the coal-fired Josper grill, which sears and chars for a unique texture and flavour.

The Hickory Menu

Lunchtime buzzes with lively lighter bites executed with refined flair. By night, Hickory exudes composure and confidence. Sweeping curves and coppery crushed velvet of intimate booths usher in an evening of sensory delight. Marble table tops are assuredly cool, complemented by welcoming soft leather seating.

Local Produce

Salmon at Golf View Hotel

Our coastal location is home to some of Scotland’s - and indeed the world’s - best scallops, lobster, langoustines, and sea bass. We work with local farms, suppliers and artisan producers as much as we can to bring together the tastes of the area and the season for our menus.


“Dinner on both nights was superb ... the choice was good, varied and they catered for my wife who has dietary requirements. If I had any comments or advice it would be to keep doing exactly what they are doing.”

Tipping Our Team

Most of our guests now prefer to pay via debit or credit card and be able to include a service charge for great service. To make this easier we have added an automatic service charge - we’ve made it a default 10% which you can change to any percentage you wish, including no service charge.

Our teams have always shared service charges and this is no different - every penny you give is shared equally by our teams through our “Fair Fund”. There is no administration cost and nothing is retained by the company, 100% of what you give is guaranteed to go to our team.

Service charge is entirely optional, if you would like us to remove it, you need only ask.
