Richard & Dan welcome you to the Wooden Fender

Based in Ardleigh, Colchester, the Wooden Fender is a short drive from Colchester town centre. The restaurant & bar area offer a relaxed contemporary environment whilst surrounded by beautiful wooden beams and a lovely log fire which is prefect for those cold winter months. We have a large patio area and garden suitable for alfresco dining in the summer months, and a play area to keep your little ones entertained whilst you enjoy the views and the atmosphere. 

We have several menus available at the Wooden Fender so whether you are a vegetarian, vegan or want gluten free meals, we have something to suit all.

We have a large selection of Gin's which currently sits at just over 30 varieties and a fine selection of wines and ales to keep your pallet refreshed.

Booking is advisable to avoid disappointment. 

Richard, Dan and the team all look forward to welcoming you.


The food, the service, the atmosphere, the setting, were all 11/10. Service was especially on point. We will be returning.

A truly lovely place to visit. The food was absolutely gorgeous and the staff are extremely helpful. We'll definitely be back soon.

Mrs Fraser

Food arrived promptly and hot. The presentation was something you'd find in a 5 star restaurant. I recommend booking as they do get busy.
