This place is a real find - lovely staff, great coffee and (by the looks of it) great food too. We only had coffee/almond croissants but they were fab. There are a couple of small tables outside which catch the morning sun and let you watch the world go by. A good choice for a brew after an exhausting morning... More

Came to The Birdcage with family and friends after reading the good recommendations on here. Lovely little snug café with lots of cushions to make you comfortable. Was sat next to all the cakes that looked utterly delicious. So far so good.... Waitress came over to take our order and was surprisingly offish. After ordering some jacket potatoes, was told...

Went to The Birdcage today after reading great reviews on Trip Advisor. Arrived at 3.00pm and found the smallish cafe packed. We enjoyed freshly prepared sandwiches, a generous slice of lovely Victoria Sandwich and a cream tea. Slightly disappointed with the service which was slow and staff appeared quite disinterested. Pleased with warm scones but the Clotted Cream was dry... More

Loved everything about our visit for breakfast that we returned the next day for a pizza. The cafe is so cute and quirky. Full breakfast was super scrummy and our pizzas where fresh and tasty, managed to squeeze in the brownie, which was to die for. Service with a smile and humour, excellent value for money, can't recommend this place... More

The Birdcage is new to town with Alastair & Simon serving up simple and very tasty food. They have recently downsized from running a large hotel and their experience in everything they provide shows at the Birdcage. The food is really fresh and very tasty indeed. Scones are made on the premises and the smoked salmon, bacon and cream cheese... More

An excellent double espresso, accompanied by the most delicious flapjack, hit the spot on a break during a day's walking. Service was good and definite value for money, as well as being comfortable.

OK it was like this - so imagine you're driving through a load of roads in Devon which are narrow enough for a horse and not much more then it opens up and you find Chagford... (When we were there some lucky couple was getting married and there were a bunch of navy chaps walking around town with swords -... More
