hicce is the creation of Pip Lacey and Gordy McIntyre
Friends for many years, hicce is a dream realised for this ambitious duo and the space and concept has been meticulously thought out to create the ultimate dining experience.
The menu will highlight Pip’s passion and skill for using the barbeque as a fuel source; grilling to steaming and smoking. From traditional smørbrød with cured meats and homemade pickles; to fish, meat and yakitori cooked over specialist holm oak charcoal. Pip will use traditional techniques to create beautiful dishes inspired by her travels and driven by her commitment to the very best produce.
Gordy is fantastically knowledgeable about drinks and guests can expect to see a carefully curated list of biodynamic wines, craft beers and original cocktails, each chosen to bring the best out of every plate.

We loved the ambience, design and general feel of this place - ideal for Sunday brunch, but equally felt special enough for a birthday treat. The staff were lovely and it was great to see the main chef herself at work in the kitchen. Fabulous ingredients, prepared with care and love

Wonderful food, service seemed a bit intense to rush us off the table when they weren’t busy and food came out quickly when they advised it would take time. Starters not good value but good value mains for size. All round worth a visit for the food.

Fabulous space, with great views of the kitchen. Interesting seasonal menu with innovative combinations and lovely sourcing of ingredients making for an exceptional meal. Lovely service and Pip even came to say hello before heading off to the restaurant awards (#48 best in UK after a few months - will be much much higher next year).

Food feels loved and service is diligent and smiley. Dishes are costly for their size and you need a few to have any danger of being full. Annoyingly, my light tonic for my gin came as a separate charge and served in a tiny glass with slice of lime. I keep going back though due to service, freshness and ambience.

Thank you for the stars and for coming back. Sounds a bit strange the glass you describe as all our spirit are served 35ml & in 13 oz glasses in order to fit all the spirit & mixer in one pour.

Food great but service slow and waiting staff disinterested. First course took 1 hour to arrive. Wine list very poor, all vegan organic, not great quality and expensive £40+ Terrace lovely in evening sun nice venue

Responded on June 4, 2019

Sorry the service was a little lengthy on your visit Friday evening, it was a particularly busy one but not an excuse for any delay you suffered. Disinterested is not a common word used when describing our guys, but I will pick up your comments with the team at our staff briefings. I feel you may have not got the wine list or pricing, we do have some organic & some vegan, but its more about sustainability which we feel is very important at present. Our wines start at £25 certainly not £40.

Usual problem with sharing plates menu.
You have to go through every dish with the server to know what size the serving is, and how many will be required if more than two want to share it.
(And as usual, the size of the dishes made sharing difficult - 3 things on a plate for 2 people, etc.)

Music far too loud, particularly when it is difficult to understand the waiter's/waitress' English.

The food was good, but not really worth the fuss of the ordering process.

It sounds like we are not really to your taste. Maybe the more traditional eight, eight, four menu caters for you better than the style we operate.

Very good fresh cooking. Nice friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. Not keen on the music but not too loud st least st lunch. Small crit: they charge quite a lot for very little bread (and too much butter). Since much of the food needs bread they need to get the bread portions right.

hicce

Thanks for the stars, bread & butter portions in restaurants are a continuous battle to appease everyone. We believe that by making all our breads daily in-house that we offer great value & quality at a very reasonable price.

The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent sharing plates with plenty of options for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. The music was a bit clubby for dining at the start but improved hugely after a little hint. Overall we had a wonderful evening and would definitely go back.

The restaurant has a really nice feel; tables are far enough apart to allow a degree of privacy; service is friendly and excellent; and its on zeitgeist without being overly trendy. Its good place to spend time. The food is ok; occasionally excellent, the heritage carrot special this evening was great; but quite a lot of it requires little expert cooking and as such it is, in my view, very pricey for the portion size. 2 quid for three tiny slices of bread is particularly entertaining, more than double that for a small portion of cheese and so on. I use Hicce pretty regularly I suppose so clearly my issues with value do not outweigh the overall enjoyment. Yet.

Lovely space located in the new vibrant area around Granary square.
Had booked and phoned ahead to inform of birthday.
Slightly officious welcome but once seated and service started seemed to warm up. We were advised on the menu for 6 people and ordered slightly more than recommended. Food is good but portions tiny for the price. Although we over ordered there was barely enough for each person to have a taste of each dish. This was mentioned and the slightly surprised reply was that next time we should order more. Desserts followed. Again not enough for 6. Wine selection good. Birthday request was forgotten. Further discussion resulted in the bill being dispensed with by the owner, despite offering to pay. Owner was upset with us and we were upset for him and for our unfortunate experience. If portions are effectively tapas size then this should be explained and the price adjusted accordingly. Good for two or three people but would not recommend for larger parties as you will be fighting over miniscule portions and / or wondering why it should cost so much. In any event you will be looking to go out to eat afterwards.

Responded on May 19, 2019

The bill was not dispensed with by myself, I refused to take your money after you verbally attacked our staff & your wife verbally abused me with a vile torrent of offensive language. No matter what you may think of portion sizes or the fact we forgot to write happy birthday, no human being deserves to be treated in the manner you treated us. My staff are real people, who go above & beyond on a daily basis for our guests, to leave them physically shaken is unacceptable & will not be tolerated

Really disappointed in this one! The service really threw us off. It took forever to get our server to the table and when we were ready to order they forced us to order everything at once which should never be the case at a tapas restaurant. Our server was really rude about it. Food was average but overpriced. So sad! I was so looking forward to a great dinner here.

hicce
Responded on May 17, 2019

Apologies we disappointed here, but I feel there is a little confusion. We are not a tapas restaurant, so we do not have the same service as one. The guys were trying to explain that by ordering bits of the menu (especially during peak times) this will cause large breaks between courses. It was either put across wrongly or misunderstood. Happy to pick this up directly with you as we certainly don't wish unhappy customers, Gordy@hicce.co.uk

Loved this restaurant. Very quirky menu but a great idea. We followed Pip Lacey from her GBM days and we’re lucky enough when she cooked for us previously at Angela’s restaurant so we were eagerly awaiting her opening her own place. The restaurant is alive & vibrant. We took advice on the menu choices which we all shared. The staff were a delight, the cocktails delicious and the food experience leaving you wanting to come back. If you want to treat someone special take them to this restaurant, you won’t regret it.
