The White Hart Inn is a lovely 17th century pub providing a selection of real ales, fine wines and fine foods. The village also has not only a filling station but a vehicle servicing garage. All Saints CE VR Primary School serves Bishops Caundle and surrounding villages. The village hall is available for hire. It has a sports hall, meeting room and a kitchen. Caundle Brook runs around the south of the village and is crossed by a Grade II listed bridge, Cornford Bridge. The village has an old church with a square bell tower. There is an active campanology group. The village also has a playing field with a sports and social club. In the corner of the playing field is a play area for youngsters.
