The village pub is The Shannon, named after Admiral Brooke's ship.
The village boasts little conveniences, with only a school, a church, a village hall (shared with the neighbouring Foxhall) a number of houses and the previously mentioned pub to speak of. A small cottage - Shell Cottage - near St Mary's church was, in fact, the old school, and the names of the children can still be found written on the walls today. The newer school is larger than this, but still small by standards, with approximately 15 students per year group, and about 100 students in all. It, like the village, is very small. the village also has a playing field, popular with the village children and football team. The council has recently made updates to the field providing the children with new equipment, including swings and an obstacle course. Although a small village, Bucklesham certainly has a charming, rural feel about it, and you are always welcomed into the community.
