Pendock is a village and civil parish in the Malvern Hills District in the county of Worcestershire, England, situated about halfway between Tewkesbury and Ledbury.

Pendock has two churches, a shop, and a primary school. It borders the M50 motorway, and has a population of approximately 329. The Pendock CE Primary School is a small voluntary-controlled school with full healthy school status and a bronze eco award. Its postal address is in Gloucestershire but the school is in the Worcestershire Education Authority.

The prolific nineteenth-century writer on Worcestershire, John Noake, in his 1868 Guide to Worcestershire notes that: "Rev. W. S. Symonds, the eminent geologist, is lord of the manor, patron and incumbent of the living."

Pendock Cross church, also known as The Redeemer Church, was built in 1899 as a temporary mission church but is still in use. It has an outdoor font which is stacked up on bricks.
