In 1994 the village public house, The Crown, was threatened with closure. A group of locals clubbed together and bought it, rather than lose it altogether. They still own it today. It remains a traditional country pub, with a selection of local real ales; the Crown has an entry in the CAMRAGood Beer Guide 2015.
Nearby to the south of the village is Clunton Coppice, a surviving piece of sessile oak woodland, owned by Shropshire Wildlife Trust. The woodland is valuable for many reasons, including the fact that it was managed for charcoal production, includes wild deer habitat and many forms of flora and fauna including mosses and rare fungi, the site is one of only two in Britain this valuable for its rare species - the other being Windsor Great Park.
