Back in Chagford for a much anticipated return visit, got there early and started off at the Birdcage to fuel our day. It was even better than last time, the interior had been rearranged and was the perfect balance of cozy, warm and welcoming from the rainy weather outside. 2 of us ordered the full birdcage breakfast and the ladies...

Perfect scrambled egg with smoked salmon and the GI toast is delicious! All washed down with a lovely bottle of Prosecco for a fab start to a birthday! Thank you for such cheery service!

Theres an array of eateries in chagford to choose from but decided the birdcage looked nice. What wealth of goodies would we find inside? Really quite uncomfortable seats were the answer After not being acknowledged by the waitress we waited for over 15 minutes whilst both of the owners and the waitress busied themselves with everyone else, including people that...

I'm quite surprised to see a couple of negative reviews for this place. I went yesterday with my other half and we were very smitten with the place. We both opted for the same ('picnic on a plate') which was excellent. Good fresh ingredients, nicely presented. The menu was full of interesting light meal ideas and there were several things...

Read good reviews and looked forward to a lovely little shop for cream tea for two. The scones didn't appear to be scones, more like plain old biscuits that were a tad gummy (microwave?), and the ditzy waitress brought only one plate for the two of us to eat from. Had to ask for another and was looked at oddly... More
