Description

The Bird Cage is the oldest inn in Thame. 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 Bird Cage 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! Nowadays, this lovely old building offers visitors a fine selection of New World wines, excellent real ales and an appetising variety of home cooked snacks and meals. Rather less daunting than its original occupants!! This 700 year old pub, Thame's oldest also features the famous Sunday Roast and Al Fresco Dining Area. We have a no smoking restaurant which seats 28 people, a bar area with casual seating and tables which seat 35+ and an al fresco dining area on the front of the premises which seat 45 and is a great place to watch the world go by while sipping on one of our new world wine selection or imported beer.
