The Mardale Inn
Bampton Valley Community Pub
Coming back to life!
After raising £400,000 to 'Save a Pub for the Valley', 'The Mardale Inn at St Patrick's Well' was purchased by over 500 members of Bampton Valley Community Pub in May 2022. The pub had been closed for 5 years and needed significant investment to secure its future.
As cash permitted, we have been reopening in a phased manner. We started with drinks only on July 1st 2022 and in late November 2022, with invaluable funding from The Prince's Countryside Fund, we reopened the kitchen.
Given amazing support from Inspiring Eden we have just reopened 6 bedrooms - with 4 of them being a brand new refurbishment! Click on 'Sleep' and book ahead for the Summer ..... or email us or call us if you need any questions answered.
Come visit our refreshed pub, meet our friendly team led by Manager Steph and Chef Nick, enjoy the best in local Cumbrian ales, keg beers, wine, gins and food - and now perhaps stay for a couple of days!
Help us bring the soul of this important Valley community hub to life!

Alternative parking areas slightly farther away include (we are a beautiful Valley for an evening stroll):
3 cars in the layby just along from Bampton School House heading towards Haweswater
4 cars by Bomby Green and the bridge to Bampton Grange
