Yummy food served with a great big dollop of love

Fantastic orange polenta cake, we had to go back each day of our holiday to enjoy it again and again! Very welcoming staff to both us and our dog. Went back and had a great Sunday lunch. Our Gluten free family member was well catered for.

We enjoyed a day out on Dartmoor over Easter holidays and found this lovely little cafe tucked away in the square for refreshments before our walk. Our party was mixed with ages ranging from 7 to 80 and our dog, but there was something to suit us all and we sat outside in the sun enjoying the view of Chagford... More

Great little cafe with home made scones, etc. Loose leaf tea was unexpected bonus along with china cup and saucer. A rarity these days.

I ate here twice over the bank holiday. It is situated in the Chagford town square tucked away in a corner. It has a busily delightful window and a quirky comfortable interior with benches strewn with cushions wood tables, mirrors a dresser filled with cakes and cookies alongside information leaflets. A blackboard contains dishes of the day and the tables... More

I visit a relative in Chagford every Easter and every Summer and one of the highlights (No offence to my relative) is The Birdcage! The owners remembered me from last time which is always a nice touch and the cakes, drinks, service and ambiance were delightful as always. Its a little treasure in a beautiful town. Thoroughly recommend!
