The place to be in Chagford!

Whether you're a visitor or local, this establishment is a must, be it the breakfast, cream tea or the coffee & walnut cake, this is a fine example of how local produce should be put together and served, all with a smile and friendly banter.

Cheerful,attentive English service. Comfy, trendy atmosphere. Had an excellent homemade pizza & salad with a wonderful bottle of house wine from Griffiths Australis for amazingly cheap price. Went back next morning for proper coffees. PS : The new jeans fitted perfectly x

Friendly staff, very cozy little cafe and pizza it's to die for. Ohhh and the Birdcage cocktail is the best I've ever tried. Highly recommended

Popped in to The Birdcage on our way back home from a midweek break in Lifton, service was very polite, and the coffee's we had were very good - certainly injected some much needed va-va-voom for the 257 mile trip home! Recommended.

This is a small quirky tearoom with some lovely cakes and cream teas. Very relaxed with lots of cushions spread around the seating, although I didn't find the seating very comfortable. The owner I assume and her staff were friendly and welcoming. Can't fault our drinks and cakes. Worth a visit if you're in Chagford but I wouldn't travel far... More

Enjoyed a very scrummy lunch here recently, thought the picnic on a plank was very inventive and very tasty! Hubby said the all day breakfast was just as good ! The cafe is small but perfectly formed, beautifully decorated with such friendly lovely owners Alastair and Simon, the make you feel very welcome and it was a pleasure to eat... More

I love this place. The owners are just so friendly and have transformed this little gem of a cafe. It's now a very buzzy and happening place, and the menu is always changing to keep the place exciting and the food inspiring. Thanks Simon, Alastair and Andrea for providing a haven of relaxation and friendliness. Try the Soya Iced Coffee.... More
