The Wooden Fender is a traditional village pub in Ardleigh, near Colchester, which serves delicious food and offers a full gluten free menu. The menu includes steaks and grills; pub classics like Fish & Chips and Hunters Chicken; and summery salads. What was most exciting about the menu was the GF Garlic Bread, I can’t remember the last time I was able to have garlic bread in a restaurant!
I chose the Roasted Vegetable and Mozzarella Salad with a side of garlic bread. The salad was beautifully presented and really yummy, packed full of flavour. The portion sizes were very generous; I was given 4 slices of garlic bread which I shared with my friend. The bread was delicious, much better than any supermarket, free from version I’ve tried.
I would highly recommend The Wooden Fender for a tasty, gluten free lunch or dinner. I will certainly be returning for more garlic bread and I’m keen to try the fish & chips.
