General

  • Traditional and welcoming pub site at the foot of the Malvern Hills
  • Three miles from the Three Counties Showground
  • Dogs welcome on site and in the pub

It's just as well for one's waistline that the Malverns have some of the best hiking and ramble routes in the land – for there's a full pub menu of eats and drinks to get through at The Marlbank Inn.

And it's just as well that said walks are simple to access too, as you might be a tad full after sampling said menu: the inn and its campsite are at the foot of the Malvern Hills within easy reach of scenic and slimming walks. The Marlbank Inn is in rural Worcestershire, close to geocaching and treasure trails, fishing and bike rides, and Worcestershire Golf Club for gentle teeing off. Events and shows are easily sorted from here too, as the Three Counties Showground is within three miles.

The Marlbank is a traditional and welcoming country pub, with a sheltered camping field well placed for handsome views over the hills. There's a playground on site, and family attractions like Ice Quest Malvern and a leisure centre with pool are within 15 minutes' drive.

Facilities include toilets and showers, an undercover washing-up area and disabled facilities, along with chemical disposal and ice pack freezing. Dogs are welcome on site and in the pub.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Children under the age of 10 are not allowed in the bar area unless dining with an adult.

    Pub wasn't serving food unfortunately. It was a Sunday. And there was not many other places to go.
    WiFi didn't work out in the pitches.

From the manager...

Hello and thank you for your review. The Marlbank prides itself on being a foodie pub, we're a growing team but we do serve food on a Sunday. The Sunday lunch is served from 12-3pm on Sunday, we are looking to extend this till 4pm in the near future. We do supply details of trusted vendors, local takeaways that offer delivery to all of our guests. Hope that helps for any future visits. Thank you once again from the Marlbank Inn - Country Pub & Campsite.

    Loved the fact that the campsite is run by a pub and is so close to the stunning walks over the Malvern Hills. The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful and the pub was cosy with great food and selection of drinks. Will definitely stay there again next time we are in the area.

Local attractions

After all those Malvern Hills hikes (for that really is a mighty fine eats and drinks menu in The Marlbank Inn), set off for indoor and outdoor days around the Malverns and its countryside.

Fab days out for families include laser questing and ice skating at Ice Quest Malvern; taking the self-guided Spy Mission treasure trail around the hills, and pummelling clay into submission at Green Frog Pottery, 15 minutes' drive away. Kids – and grownups – of a certain sort might also like the Malvern Museum of Local History; if not, Ledbury's 19th-century Eastnor Castle has regular events including family fun days and sword fighting sessions (foam swords, you may be somewhat relieved to hear). Both museum and castle are 10 minutes' drive away.

For a peaceful day out, drive 25 minutes to the meadow valleys, orchards and woodland of The Knapp and Papermill Nature Reserve, to look out for woodpeckers and nuthatches, dormice and bats (the reserve has 11 of the UK's 15 breeding species). Pick up a free trail leaflet or buy a family trail guide and information booklet at the visitor centre, to head out after another bite to eat in the picnic area.

Must see
