Verderers’ is our fine-dining restaurant within The Speech House – from an intimate meal for two through to a private function for 50 people. Perfect if you’re looking for a more formal dining setting with a modern twist. The historic beamed Verderer’s Court restaurant reflects the room’s continuing use as a courthouse for the Forest of Dean Verderers.

We offer a fine dining menu which our Head Chef changes seasonally, offering dishes prepared with fresh and as far as possible, locally sourced ingredients. We cater for vegetarians, vegans and special dietary requirements.

Please view our sample menus to give you a flavour of what we offer.
