Lovely daily dishes: great salads and a fantastic soup of the day (carrot & ginger :). Exceptionally friendly services and open when most other places are closed.

We were recommended by our B&B to go here for the homemade pizza. The pizza was very good, fresh, handmade, thin and crispy and really really tasty. So for that reason I would highly recommend the Birdcage. We did feel that we were left waiting a very long time though after our main course until I finally grabbed the waitress... More

Staff were extremely helpful (particularly when we wanted to know how to buy some of the chilli jam used in the sandwiches - which apparently comes from the South Devon Chilli Farm). Food was delicious. Between us we tried the sandwiches, pizza (gluten free) and jacket potatoes - all three... More

Quiche, salad & warm potato with chives all perfect - wish we'd had room to try the delicious looking cakes - also very pleasant waitress and atmosphere - will definitely call again. The tapas sound really good too.

Having waited in the Chagford Inn for half and hour for lunch, we left and found the Bird Cage. The staff were cheerful, helpful and agreed to serve us quickly, as we were pressed for time. The soup was home made and very tasty. I would certainly return there on my next trip to Chagford.

Paused here for coffee on a beautiful sunny day, so we sat outside. The interior is cool and beautifully inviting - could have quite happily foregone the sunshine for the cosy interior. An amazing range of cakes to choose from - we eventually narrowed it down and managed to choose - coffee and walnut and lemon. Both were delicious -... More
