We called in at The Birdcage in Chagford after it being recommended, we chose to have tea and cake. Its a comfortable place to dine and seems to get busy. The service was very good and it was not long before we were tucking into one of their gorgeous cakes.

On driving up from Falmouth I came across this wonderful cafe located in Chagford on the edge of Dartmoor. Great food, great menu options, super service and good value for money.

The birdcage is a beautiful place to have a bite to eat. You need to be lucky to get a seat here when Chagford is busy as it is rather 'cosy'. This does however completely add to its charm. Food lovely, place lovely, a nice chic feel, staff all lovely. A definate stop off for anyone in the area.

A lovely place in a lovely town. Great service and delicious homemade cakes! Imaginative decor with a country chic twist.

Found this little gem after going for a walk along the river teign, set in the middle of Chagforg its very cosy. The owners are very pleasant and helpful & the food was really nice & plenty of it, my mother would have loved it here, the teapot for two is huge. Would recommend it & hope to be back... More

We visited for a coffee on a Sunday morning and very much enjoyed our coffee whilst reading the Sunday papers. Lovely atmosphere and although we didn't eat it all looked delicious.

The Birdcage brightened up a wet February Monday afternoon perfectly. Warm and welcoming, with friendly service, delicious soup and a wonderful lemon drizzle cake.
