Inkberrow is a village in the district of Wychavonmarker, Worcestershire that is often thought to be the model for Ambridge, the setting of the BBC Radio 4 long running radio serialisation or soap opera The Archers. In particular 'The Bull', the fictional Ambridge pub, is supposed to be based on a very real pub, the Old Bull, in Inkberrow. It is at this historic public house or wayside inn, a black and white half-timbered building, that William Shakespeare is reputed to have stayed while on his way to Worcestermarker to collect his marriage certificate. Also in the village, there is a post office, a small shop called the Forge Shop and a restaurant–bar called the Bull's Head.

The village's parish church is dedicated to St. Peter [300748].

In 2006 Inkberrow was awarded the title of Worcestershire Village of the Year 2006 and winner of the Building Community Life section of the competition
