The village itself offers a range of amenities including a parish church, community Post Office, highly regarded C of E primary school, and the Red Lion public house (recently voted one of the Independent newspaper’s top 50 country pubs). There is a splendid modern village hall, which has become the centre for a variety of community sports and activities with its adjoining sports field and tennis courts. A local bus company runs a limited service from the village to Pangbourne on Thames, Reading, Streatley on Thames and Goring on Thames, where a mainline railway station with fast commuter services up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour (25 minutes from Reading) can be found, in addition to the pending Cross Rail from Reading leading up to The City.
