Pease Pottage is familiar to many drivers for its motorway service station, named after the village, which also serves as a local shop (Simply Food and W H Smith) for the residents of the village (a footpath was constructed to allow pedestrian access from the village). It is located at the junction of the M23 and the A23 on the London to Brighton road, where the A264 to Horsham joins.
The village itself has a florist's shop, a pub, a car breaker's yard, playing fields, a golf driving range (currently closed) and course (also closed), some small industrial units and offices. The Church of the Ascension, a chapel of ease to St Mary's Church in Slaugham, opened in 1875 but is no longer in use.
The Pease Pottage Radar is located around half a mile west of Pease Pottage, and is visible from much of the village. It is an Air Traffic Control Radar for National Air Traffic Services and takes advantage of a position above sea level, some above the nearby Gatwick Airport.
