The area is perhaps best known for its three garden centres, two of which are situated directly across the A4 from each other. The largest of the three garden centres, Hare Hatch Sheeplands, has frequently been in difficulty with the local council in arranging planning permission, and issues revolving around the change of use of the existing buildings on site, from nursery with farm shop & cafe, to mixed retail with cafe & play area on green belt land. This is still unresolved, and as of May 2015, the council are still trying to impose sanctions on the business.
On 27 April 1927 seven Reading FC fans were killed when their bus crashed in Hare Hatch on the way home from a match against Chelsea.
