Excellent lunch stop before a local walk

Excellent service and a friendly and charming place to eat in Chagford. Delicious flapjacks which we took to eat on our walk. Highly recommend and will be back!

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!

A last minute booking Mother's Day booking at this tiny Chagford restaurant was a real stroke of luck. Lovely ambience, combining a cosy feel with elegance, friendly staff and the most delicious fresh food cooked with care. Our pizza's were fine and generously topped withe cheese, and our cooked brunches were perfect. Desert's were generous and rather exquisite - a... More
