There's something rather unique going on in Kelvedon - swap a leek for a pint, a carrot for a beer'' Head on down to The Angel and meet Simon Charles and the team, who will exchange your local, home-grown produce for a beaming smile and pint in hand. Offering this innovate 'swap shop' for locals and visitors alike, The Angel is rising high, helping the local populace with its highly commendable community ethos.

Bring the children to this traditional family pub; let them run around the garden in the summer and snuggle by the open fires in winter. Allow them to peruse the children's menu while you choose something a little more hearty. Tuck into oeuf en cocotte - baked eggs with leeks, mushroom and a cheese gratin - to start, or maybe share the popular haggis dish, served with scallops and crispy bacon. Rest assured that ingredients used are locally sourced wherever possible (the carrot for a pint, remember), and plump for either the local British rib-eye steak or slow-roasted pork belly, served with roasted bubble and squeak - just two of the many main meals on offer. An extensive wine list allows you to enjoy the perfect accompaniment to your chosen dish, along with a choice of soft drinks, lagers and real ales. After tiring themselves out in the garden, the kids will surely find room for dessert; treat them to gooey chocolate Jacqueline Françios - there's a great story attached to this one - or an assiette of summer fruits.

It's not just The Angel recipe that Simon has got right; he recently took to the helm of The Prince of Wales in Inworth. This family pub offers fantastic gastro food and even has a 14th-Century barn, perfect for any function - Simon has many plans for this place. Live music, comedy nights and maybe even a free (well, kind of) pint await you at this friendly pub serving traditional values with an innovative twist.
