The Wooden Fender
The uniquely named Wooden Fender is located in the village of Ardleigh, Colchester. Located just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of Britain's oldest recorded town, The Wooden Fender blends relaxed, contemporary, sensibly priced fresh food pub fine dining with a traditional, welcoming "proper" pub.
Richard, Dan and their team offer a warm welcome, a choice of superbly kept real ales and good old fashioned friendly service in a place full of character. Joint Head Chefs Jacey Eddington & James Tidman and their team offer both classic and contemporary dishes, using the best of seasonal and where possible, local produce (in some instances very local; we have our own vegetable patch in the Fender garden!) We also offer a complete gluten free menu. Dine in our traditional bar or our restaurant.
