Aside from turning out stylish modern dishes cooked over a wood fire, Hicce in Coal Drops Yard is also a great event space. Choose from the intimate downstairs private dining room or the main restaurant, which can house up to 120 guests. This airy, brick-walled space has a relaxed yet refined feel, perfect for launch parties, birthdays or corporate events.
Start the evening off with a cocktail on the terrace, with ‘winter warmer’ options like ‘hiccewhein’, a mix of whisky, ginger syrup, evangelista ratafia, albizu tempranillo and bitters, or a hot toddy for something a little more familiar.
Moving to the main event - food - there is a range of boards to choose from. The charcuterie option features duck rillettes, saucisson and bresaola, while the seafood selection consists of cured salmon with wasabi, boquerones with cavolo nero and chipirones with tomato and mint. Once your guests have had their palates excited, they’ll move to larger dishes, which celebrate seasonal ingredients. Expect meat dishes like beef rump with chilli, turnip, spring onion and sesame, or seafood like octopus with leek, apple and caper beurre noisette. Vegetarians don’t fall by the wayside at Hicce, as there are delights such as onion tempura with hazelnut, blood orange and balsamic or cauliflower with exotic mushrooms and smoked hollandaise to enjoy.
Desserts are simple and punchy, such as chocolate mousse with almond and passion fruit, an apple and pear samosa or ginger parkin with rhubarb and clotted cream. The wine list at Hicce is split into low intervention, organic, sustainable and/or biodynamic wines - referred to as ‘living’ - or ‘classic’ bottles featuring more elegant grapes.
