We were in Malmesbury for a Sunday night, and it looked to us as if there wasn't actually a great deal of choice for evening meals as a couple of places are shut on Sunday night. The Birdcage was fairly busy, and lively however, so we were lucky to find a table here. Excellent service, nice food, and on a... More

After a terrible experience at The Potting Shed, we drove to The Bird Cage. What a contrast! The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Gluten free options were plentiful and I ordered a delicious pizza, as did my other half. We had such a lovely relaxed meal, with very attentive service - thank you! Situated by the Abbey, this was... More

When we arrived the staff gave us a warm and friendly welcome. The restaurant was clean and well decorated with little items and pictures dotted about for interesting conversation. The food came out in good time, it was hot and to be honest one of the best pizzas that I have had outside of Italy. Good ingredients, fresh and a... More

We popped in for a post-Brexit pizza on Friday night to cheer ourselves up. Good garlic bread, pizza and nice rose, in a pleasant environment with good service and even better friends. Just what the doctor ordered :) Keep up the good work Stewart and team, definitely making Malmesbury even better.

It's a very comfy cafe with tables, and a good deal... More

Probably one of the best pizzas you can have. Great thin crusts with a wide variety of options. Definitely recommended.
