There are four public houses in the village: The Bird in Hand, The Jolly Sailor, The Crown and The Riverside.
Saltford has had a primary school in the village for a number of centuries. Originally housed in what is now St Mary's Church Hall, the school is now located off Claverton Road. A Church of England school, it has its own swimming pool, large fields, a pond and a playground. The school has invested greatly in IT facilities and its library. It has recently received outstanding reviews in five key areas by Ofsted inspections. The school will shortly have a purpose-built before and after school nursery on site, run by a local business.
For churchgoers St Mary's Church, Saltford, is a Norman church which dates back to the 12th century and is a Grade II listed building with the tower dating from Saxon times.
Being on the River Avon the village is the location of the Avon County Rowing Club, a club which is available for local community from a young age to adults. There is also a sports and social club behind Saltford Hall that maintains a large area of open land leased from BANES that is used mainly for football and cricket. The club is not for profit and has close links with Saltford Community Association. Another local leisure facility is the Saltford Golf Club which is considered ‘one of the finest golf courses in Bristol & Bath.’ This 18-hole course is situated in stunning natural woodland with extensive views across the surrounding countryside.

Frequent bus services connect Saltford with Keynsham and both Bath & Bristol city centres. The Saltford Environment Group is campaigning for the reopening of Saltford railway station on the Bath-Bristol line. They hope to have the station reopened when the Great Western Main Line is electrified, including between Bath and Bristol Temple Meads. This could be of great benefit to anyone who is looking to commute to work in either cities.
Saltford has a strong community. In 1960 the residents of Saltford started a community fund that was used to build the Saltford Hall, which was completed in 1961. The Hall was built by residents who gave their time freely to dig the foundations and build the main Hall. The Saltford Community Association, which is a charity run by volunteers, have run the hall since it was built. The SCA has a fundraising committee which raises funds not only to maintain and improve the Hall but also supports local charities. The Hall is used to provide the local community facilities such as Blood donation evenings, citizens advice, community support and entertainment. The SCA has recently introduced a week-long village festival which has been very successful.
