New À La Carte Menu


The Historic Verderer’s Court, Formal Dining Restaurant

The Verderers, based at The Speech House Hotel offers all levels of dining experience from an intimate meal for two through to a private function for 50. If you are looking for a more formal dining environment, 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 Verderer’s.

We offer an a la carte menu which our chef changes each season, offering dishes prepared with fresh and as far as possible locally sourced ingredients. We cater for vegetarians and special dietary requirements. Please visit our sample menus and wine list on this site.

Opening Hours:

Monday – Saturday | 6.30pm – 9pm
Sunday | 12noon – 2.45pm and 6.30pm – 9pm
Bank Holidays | Check Availability

The Carolean is a more intimate dining area which is used as a cosy corner on quieter evenings or when the Verderers is fully booked.
