Myself and 3 friends went to birdcage for afternoon tea. Whilst the drinks were fine, the 4 different cakes we ordered were all quite dry and flavourless. It was a bit late in the day, but surprised that all were dry and flavourless. At £5 per head it was disappointing.

We are not local but when we return to the area we intend to leave room for... More

Had the most delicious salad for lunch so decided to have dinner the same evening! Wonderful atmosphere, charming service from Simon and his happy band, and the food was again delicious. The place to be when in Chagford! Don't miss out!

So good I came back twice. First time for very nice cream tea with scones stright out of the oven...and the second for the Victoria sponge. No superlatives can describe how good the sponge was...i have never had better. Also the lady who runs the cafe was really friendly..

Lovely place, great service and fresh and tasty pizzas. The tapas to start with was well cooked and presented and we were sorry we were too full to try the deserts!

I have lived in England for just under a year and this is the best lunch I have had to date! I ordered the picnic with Ham/Cheddar and it was a perfect meal! (Added a picture) I loved it! My husband ordered and Ham/Cheddar/mustard Baguette and he loved his as well. He also got the Very Berry smoothie which was... More
