 Menu, Accents & Uniformity.

Our menu holds strong British accents, and we’re proud of being a traditionally British public house; the award-winning accolades and chefs are versed classically in French with exotic seasonal dishes. For us, its about doing things right, not overcomplicated things and making it look fancy.

We started with the public-house itself. Sounds easy, but you almost need to take a back seat and aesthetically judge what is our USP prior to considerations of render, interiors, lights and the kitchen. It was to reflect the history of the pub, its significance to the area and Welland. It really is a standalone location, there really are so many lovely things about the Marlbank even in its raw state. Not to push boundaries, cloud the charisma with modern accents- but the brief was to preserve it and enhance the Country Pub to be the very best it can. – Amit, Chef-Owner, Marlbank Inn

Keeping it Simple | Large Serves and Careful Thought

There’s not less on the plate, or we don’t score through a bird and foam and create gelatines. Its still very much recognisable, its how we feel proper pub food should be. No smoke or mirrors; its homemade food. A few notches in the right direction from what you expect from a superb meal cooked at home.

Avoid you scowling to the finest local butchers and growing your own hers, charcoal firing and creating your own 72 hours stock / we thing we have you table covered. Arrive at ease, enjoy yourselves over a few drinks and browse our food menus! We’d like to think we have something for everyone; our a la carte Oak Smoked, Clay fired and Charcoal dishes are pure excellence.

Daily Love, Service & Persistence | The Marlbank Resturant

Something that is very different to any other Gastropub in Worcestershire, Malvern or even what we’ve seen nationwide. We’re in this to win big, were lofty aimed and the passion and energy we put into the daily purist is as close to insanity; or for better-describing words; a well-orchestrated symphony.

The symphony name is service. Service for us starts when you enter the door, make a phone call or just ping us. We want to make you sure you know; that its really about you more than its about us. We mean this and it’s a founding core ethos.

We’re a small quaint pub, so you count more to us. We owe it to you; to do the best we can to keep you coming back! So we ensure that everyone else here, feel this. Feelings are the most important thing to us. We hosting an experience; we’re trying to be the best we can and we will continue to grow with your love and support. It really would be great to see you, till we meet my friends.


The Marlbank is a pub with a difference. We’ve been living in Malvern or two years now, believe me, we spoke to many locals not just of our pub, but we hope we’ve struck a cord and have greater appeal for our visitors and Worcestershire, Malvern foodies.

Starting with a newly stripped award-winning kitchen, our food pedigree was and is a driver, producing homemade food from scratch on site. Yes, a general term that is quite honestly frustrating as many establishments in the hospitality and food business cop out and either offer too much on the menu, so surely it can’t all be homemade right?

The seasonal meats and Vegan options are perfectly twinned with our very own herb garden. Braised stocks, slowly cooked Beef, Lamb and marinations that build flavour overnight. Another step to set up apart is the Sunday Lunch. The Marlbank Sunday Lunch offering combines Quail, Baby Chicken, Lamb Rump, Beef Steaks all of which, are either smoked, clay fired or lights turned on Charcoal to help seal in flavour, continuing with basting the meats in garden herbs and homemade butter.

Medly of vegetables, rustic baby potatoes,  Halloumi and vegetable croquet, inspired by Middle Eastern salads, beans are all treated with the same love. The Sunday Lunch is to really set the tone for us, and we knew we had to make it better than ever, every Sunday!
