OMG where do I begin. After a very disappointing experience at another café in Chagford I couldn't believe the difference. I have to be honest and say the cakes were the BEST I have ever had. I had coffee and walnut, my husband Victoria and my friends had chocolate.. All were so moist, light and so, so moreish. The coffee... More

We ordered from the main menu + tapas. Good food, well presented, salads might have been a bit more adventurous but pretty good and a really pretty place with lovely atmosphere.

At last, a Devonshire Tea worth it. Lovely cosy space and atmosphere with mix of chatter from locals and visitors. Free WiFi much appreciated. Sweet decor.

Myself and 3 friends went to birdcage for afternoon tea. Whilst the drinks were fine, the 4 different cakes we ordered were all quite dry and flavourless. It was a bit late in the day, but surprised that all were dry and flavourless. At £5 per head it was disappointing.

The service was fantastic (a very friendly waitress who couldn't do enough for us) and my husband said the pizza was the best he has EVER had...he follows a gluten free diet. We are not local but when we return to the area we intend to leave room for... More

Had the most delicious salad for lunch so decided to have dinner the same evening! Wonderful atmosphere, charming service from Simon and his happy band, and the food was again delicious. The place to be when in Chagford! Don't miss out!
