The village is split by a steep hill, part of the escarpment overlooking the Severn floodplain. At the bottom of the hill is Lower Almondsbury where a pub and hotel, The Bowl Inn, is situated. South Wales, the Forest of Dean, the River Severn and both Severn Bridges are visible from the higher parts of the village.
The pub takes its name from the bowl shape of the land surrounding the estuary. Parts of this whitewashed-stone inn were originally the three cottages erected in 1146 to house the monks building the adjacent church of St Mary the Virgin. The present building became a licensed inn in 1550.
Also at the bottom of the hill is the local church, dedicated to Saint Mary the Virgin. The church and tower were built in 1140 AD. The lead-covered spire was added some time before 1619.
Another pub, The Swan Inn, is located on the A38, in the upper part of the village, almost opposite an open space known as Almondsbury Tump.
In March 2009 a community shopwas opened in the village by the not-for-profit Almondsbury Community Services Association (ACSA), situated opposite the Old School Hall at 14 Church Road.The community shop is staffed entirely by unpaid volunteers. The aim of theproject goes beyond a village shop, being a service for the village, to support local suppliers wherever possible, and to be another focal point where people in the village can meet. A proportion of the surplus generated by the shop is returned to community projects and organizations in the village. The main manager of the shop is Alun Evans.
The village also has a motorway police station, a garden centre, and a restaurant/pub.
