Such a lovely place to stop for lunch in the pretty Dartmoor village of Chagford. Just a few tables, so very cozy and welcoming. Delicious lunch choices, at excellent prices. The scrambled egg with mushrooms and lovely thick-cut toast was perfect. Will definitely be back - the pizzas sound excellent!

Popped in for lunch with the wife yesterday. WOW really friendly and the food was amazing. Home made and quality ingredients. We would make the hours drive from home just for lunch. Don't often recommend a place so highly but this is a must.

Great food at a very reasonable price. My wife and I had a lovely lunch here whilst we were staying in Chagford: - friendly staff; - great food (soups and sandwiches highly recommended); - loose leaf teas (not teabags); - clean and comfortable surroundings; - excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

I go there when I happen to be in Chagford and I always come out with a smile. The food is delicious (best pizzas in Devon, and best cream teas too, and of course the breakfast too) and the staff is always really nice and friendly. Even my dogs love it, and they never leave without having had a biscuit!... More

The menu says parma ham, however the pizza had normal ham. I asked the waiter if it was parma ham and he said yes (lying) and walked away. I would not have ordered that pizza if I knew it was not parma ham, but normal ham.
