The Birdcage has been a Chagford and North East Dartmoor favourite for nearly 8 years and has been in its present ownership for 7 years. This lovely cafe has a great atmosphere and serves up to 26 covers inside plus an exterior table in good weather. Presently the owners do not open in evenings or every day, but in the past they have and this is reflected in the figures. Check the opening hours on line if you would like to come out and check The Birdcage over if you think you might be interested in this excellent business opportunity.



The Birdcage is situated on the sunny side of The Square in this bustling Ancient Stannary Town set in the north east of beautiful Dartmoor. Chagford is a well to do and prosperous town with a population of all age groups and a good arts scene. It has a number of pubs and cafes, good shopping and easy access to the moor and countryside and riverside walks to help build up that appetite. Chagford is a popular visitor destination and attracts the discerning tourist as well as having a population that likes to dine out. The A30 dual carriageway and A38 are only 5 miles away and Exeter is approximately 20 miles.
