Happened to stop by after a walk with the dog needing warming up. Unfortunately inside was full but we sat outside with our dog. Had hot chocolates and toasted tea cakes. The hot chocolate was lovely and hot! Too often elsewhere it is luke warm. It was all delicious! They even had biscuits for the dog. Excellent service and very... More

Popped in for lunch with the wife yesterday. WOW really friendly and the food was amazing. Home made and quality ingredients. We would make the hours drive from home just for lunch. Don't often recommend a place so highly but this is a must.

Great food at a very reasonable price. My wife and I had a lovely lunch here whilst we were staying in Chagford: - friendly staff; - great food (soups and sandwiches highly recommended); - loose leaf teas (not teabags); - clean and comfortable surroundings; - excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

I go there when I happen to be in Chagford and I always come out with a smile. The food is delicious (best pizzas in Devon, and best cream teas too, and of course the breakfast too) and the staff is always really nice and friendly. Even my dogs love it, and they never leave without having had a biscuit!... More

The menu says parma ham, however the pizza had normal ham. I asked the waiter if it was parma ham and he said yes (lying) and walked away. I would not have ordered that pizza if I knew it was not parma ham, but normal ham.

Wonderful! The best cream tea we had during our week in Devon. Nice staff and in the town square in this great little market town.

We visited Chagford on recommendation from a friend, but on arriving at 1500 on a weekday, we were disappointed to find most of the restaurants and pubs had stopped serving food ... it's just as well though, as it led us to the Birdcage who serve food all day! We both had pizzas which were simply out of this world.... More

Call in every time we go through Chagford. Last time my wife left her coat behind and it was kept safely for our return. Great home made food and locally sourced produce. Pleased they maintain tea standards with loose leaf and a proper tea strainer. Am hoping they will add Black or Hogs Pudding to their otherwise excellent Full English... More

On our arrival in Chagford, we fancied a spot of lunch and were lucky enough to get a table in The Birdcage. The afternoon tea for one and the jacket potato were both delicious and the cafe surroundings were very pleasant. Staff were welcoming and gave prompt service. A lovely little gem to visit for a bite to eat!
