2. Brunch with Santa at Hickory’s West Kirby 2023

Santa is heading to the smokehouse for a magical brunch before the big day! Save the date…

His sleigh will be pulling in on Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th December, 10am – 2pm!

So bring the little ones down for a brunch, festive films in the cinema room, the chance to write a letter to Santa, and of course…meet the big man himself!

Treat your little ones to pancake stacks – choose maple, bacon & maple or blueberry compote & cream. Or let them go all out for a Hicks fix with a Southern fried chicken burger, mac ‘n’ cheese or popcorn chicken. Just make sure they leave room for dessert. Go for homemade waffles, churros or let them take a trip to the “Creation Station” to load up on toppings for their Fro-Co.

£5 deposit per person – the last booking to see Santa is 2pm. We have a special request from Santa: “Please add the names of your child/children to the “Special Requests” when you book.”
