Welcome to The Birdcage...

 

Located in Thame's town centre, the Birdcage is well-known for its award-winning Pieminister pies and craft beers. 

Built around 1300 it has fortunately retained its structural character and many of the elm beams, once covered in ancient plaster, have been exposed creating the historical atmosphere inside and out. 

During the Napoleonic wars, the Birdcage housed French prisoners who incidentally founded the local Masons. In fact, for many years it was used as a holding house for petty thieves and criminals, even lepers on the upper floors! 

Of course stories handed down from generation to generation have only enhanced its eerie reputation of being haunted by some of these troubled souls!

We’ve teamed up with Pieminister to bring you a selection of award winning pies using only the best ingredients.

The meat is 100% British, 100% free range, 100% of the time and comes from farms with the highest welfare standards.

Their veggie pies are approved by Vegetarian Society and they have won many awards including the Great Taste Awards and British Pie Awards so you know you’re onto a winner with a Pieminister pie.
