Dining at HU

If you want to make a day of it, need a break from shopping or simply want to meet up with friends we have two impressive dining and refreshment venues, both offering fresh and tasty menus in a friendly and comfortable setting.

The fabulous fully licensed Wickentree Restaurant offers our famous Afternoon Teas as well as well-loved classics and modern favourites and if you drop in on Sunday lunchtimes you can even enjoy the accompaniment of live piano music.

If you need a quick pit stop mid shop then we have Café 1947 where you can enjoy a freshly ground roast coffee with freshly baked cakes and patisseries.

We also have an amazing Private Dining Room located within the Wickentree Restaurant seating 16 people that is perfect for special occasions, celebrations, group get-togethers or Corporate Events.

The reputation of our amazing dining experiences speaks for themselves and are one of the many reasons why customers return time and time again.
