The local community has many attributes on offer. The Cedars Pub is located in the centre of the village and can be easily found.
The village also has an excellent recreation ground and sports pavilion. Both football and cricket are played in the village and the recreation ground plays host to the Binsted Village Fete each year, one of the many high spots in the annual calendar.
The annual village fete provides an interesting insight to the degree of community spirit which still remains in Binsted. The fete is primarily a village affair which eschews most of the more commercial aspects adopted by many villages. However, visitors are always welcome to attend and to participate in the fete and most first time visitors will likely be surprised by the genuine rural community atmosphere which pervades this event.
