Private Functions


The Verderers, based at Speech House Hotel offers all levels of dining experience from an intimate meal for two through to a private function for 50. The Verderers is also licenced for weddings and civil ceremonies.

If you are looking for a more formal dining environment, the historic, beamed Verderer’s Court restaurant reflects the room’s continuing use as a courthouse for the Forest of Dean Verderer’s, whilst the more intimate Carolean Restaurant maintains links with unique Forest traditions of Gloucestershire. The Carolean will comfortably seat parties up to 25 in number and this room is often booked for birthday celebrations and anniversaries.

We cater for most tastes and include a range of vegetarian meals. If you fancy something that is not on the menu please ask and we will try our hardest to accommodate your request. Our chef is also used to catering for allergies and we will accommodate guests’ requests and provide dishes to suit all diets. We also offer a selection of carefully chosen wines and liqueurs to compliment the dishes on our menus. As far as is practicable we source our food locally and use only fresh and seasonal produce.
