Name
: Richard Prior

Role: Assistant and Restaurant Manager

Favourite things?: Richard is a keen football supporter of Arsenal, happy customers and also his beautiful little daughter.

How long have you been at The Wooden Fender?:Over 8 years

Favourite thing/s about The Wooden Fender?: The fact that is makes a perfect summer pub because of the size of the garden (somewhere for little ones like my daughter to run around in!) but it's also a brilliant winter pub with the open fires. I also love our regulars and making sure the restaurant runs smoothly and with a buzz.
