Popped in for an informal Saturday night meal . A small but pretty 'sitting room' with a lovely warm and friendly atmosphere. Pizza was ordered for two with cocktails. Wonderful meal. It was also lovely to personal thank the chef.

My wife and I enjoyed a proper cup of tea and snack in the Birdcage before going for our 4 mile walk. Very welcoming cafe delightful surroundings and a very tasty savoury scone. If we hadn't brought a picnic with us we would have returned for lunch. Would highly recommend a visit if you are in the area.

Love this place! Amazing pizza scrummy soup and cakes to die for! Service is great decor really quirky and cool. The birdcage is the perfect stop to warm up and refuel after a long walk. Can't wait to go back.

There seems to be a lack of places serving decent coffee in chagford. The birdcage served a very good double espresso.

Have visited a few times and this time was not disappointing. We had pizza, salads and baked potato and they were all delicious! The Luscome drinks were very refreshing. There was a warm cosy atmosphere - just right.
