What a lovely place to eat!!!! Quaint & unique are probably the best words to describe this place. If you're within 30 miles or so of Chagford I'd strongly advise you to make a visit to the village and then call in for something to eat and drink here. The orange juice must have been one the freshest, nicest and... More

Called into this lovely place for a spot of breakfast before a walk on the moors and so glad we did! The full English breakfast was superb, fresh, tasty and cooked perfectly. Quirky place with lovely friendly staff, well worth a visit if your in the area.

We popped in here for a coffee after a walk around the village. All of us remarked on how good the coffee was and the staff was very friendly.

Beautiful little spot - we sat outside in the sun and had great afternoon coffee and delicious walnut cake - absolutely worth a visit! We'll definitely be back.

We stopped in this lovely little village late in the afternoon, in need of a cup of tea and some cake. The Birdcage ticked this box...and more! China cups & saucers, a generous pot of tea and delicious lemon drizzle cake (the lady even brought two pieces for us, even though we'd only ordered one!) A lovely atmosphere in the... More

Such a lovely meal here, quick and every small plate we ordered was delicious. It was some of the best food we had in England. And the cake was wonderful. Great pizza for the kids, too.

Lovely little cafe. Delicious food, freshly prepared and very tasty- great for a lunch or afternoon tea. 'Picnic on a plank' was delicious, and the panini came with lots of fresh salad. The massive pile of freshly baked scones suggests this place is popular for a cream tea and we'll be back to try one soon!

Ordered cheese and baked beans, which came with a side salad. Don't know which potatoes the use but it was the best tasting potato I have had for a long time. The simple side salad was more than simple, roasted butternut squash added an extra dimension. Would eat here again, can't wait to try something ellse on the menu.
