While there isn't a shop in the village, Blake's Kitchen in Clanfield Post Office, just 3 miles away, is a great deli, bakery and source of general supplies as well as being a post office. Also 3 miles away is Lechlade, which has a number of shops of cafês. A little further away in Faringdon (6 miles south east) there is a Waitrose, Tesco & Aldi while in Carterton (7 miles north east) you can find Asda and Aldi plus independent shops.
