A very warm Welcome to The Roadmaker Inn

On the Newent road, in the village of Gorsley and a just a few hundred yards from the border between Herefordshire and Gloucestershire stands The Roadmaker Inn.

Originally The Roadmaker Inn was called The New Inn, until being renamed in 1976 after a local man who built roads with chippings from a nearby quarry.  He built the New Inn in 1847 as a place where he could brew cider and breed pigs. For a long time the New Inn was a simple cider house.

Today the Roadmaker Inn is owned and run by former British Ghurka Soldiers, who served in the 1st Royal Ghurka Rifles. They create beautiful English and Nepalese food using fresh local produce whereever possible, proving extremely popular with the locals, passers-by and comes highly recommended.

The house boasts a public bar with log fireplace place and plentiful seating, and an additional restaurant. Private parties for any celebration or event are welcome and it is suggested you book well in advance to ensure availability.

What Our Customers Say

Easy to review The Roadmaker, Friendly service, First class food and a great atmosphere. We ate here recently and couldn’t fault anything, 5 days later we had a Take Away for 6 people and again couldn’t fault anything. Perhaps that’s why we don’t mind the 26 mile round trip.
