Jerry & Carol Strader
Jerry and Carol are high school sweethearts who grew up in Toronto Ontario. Prior to their move to Cambridge in 2017, they spent almost 30 years living in the small town of Tottenham Ontario raising their two children.

With a passion for sampling delicious food, wine and spirits during their frequent travels, the pair are now living out their dream of owning and operating their own restaurant in beautiful Hespeler Village. The Aging Oak was created using Jerry and Carol's vision of the "perfect night out."
Chef Ryan Colley, originally from Mississauga Ontario is typically known for his inspired and refined take on various cuisines. With over 20 years experience as Chef and Restauranteur, he has worked from Toronto to the Muskoka's and across the country in beautiful Lake Louise Alberta.

Recently moved to Cambridge with his wife and young son, Ryan has a wide variety of culinary knowledge through his experience from wedding and banquets to catering and fine dining atmospheres.

Staying fresh and local with his food, Ryan looks forward to bringing his passion for these aspects to The Aging Oak.
