We are very sorry. This was our first day of weekday opening for the Tea Room and our freshly baked cakes were just coming out of the oven and cooling. We hope you come back to try them another day. Tea Rooms are now open 11 am - 4pm Tues to Saturday and to 5pm on Sunday. We hope you... More

An impromptu visit and luckily there was a table for two available. The restaurant was very busy but we were served quickly and the waitress was happy to check with the chef which dishes did not have any gluten containing ingredients. The food was delicious, piping hot and generous portions. We took our own wine and our waitress willingly brought... More

Been to the restaurant many times on an evening and can't fault it. Just returned from a coffee and cake sat outside in the sunshine. The only thing that spoilt it was the miserable lady who served us inside! A smile and a thank you would've been nice but obviously too much trouble. The same lady also came outside to... More

Visited last night with a group of friends where only 1 is vegetarian. We shared the banquet which was amazingly good value - there is loads - 4 courses - all simply scrumptious. To say 8 out of 9 are eat meaters we did not miss the meat one bit. All dishes were presented well - portions not for the... More

I have visited here with friends once before for lunch, which was excellent, but last a group of us went and shared a banquet which was simply fantastic! At £18.50 per head, it was outstanding value. The food was beautiful and thoroughly enjoyed by the whole group, most of whom are not vegetarian. There was far too much food for... More

Our third visit and, as usual, the food was great. However, it was the first time I have ever had to eat dinner wearing my outdoor winter coat. The place was freezing cold....thermal undies a must next time!

On holiday from Hertfordshire. Great to find a veggie eating place that isn't over-priced, even the drinks were well priced. Excellent variety of menu. Some tables and chairs a bit 'rustic' along with the car park but hey, that's all that stopped me giving a 5 star rating. Booking ahead a necessity for evening I think. Would most definitely put...

We've been loads of times over the years; more so recently as our daughter is a veggie. The food is always fresh, well cooked and plentiful, the service friendly. Even though it's been expanded i'd still advise booking early especially at the weekend.

I have visited the Cheerful Chilli several times now since moving to Otley and have never been disappointed. The food is fantastic - this place does vegetarian food WELL. I do feel like a lot of their dishes include cheese (lots of it!) which is fantastic for me but a vegetarian friend not keen on cheese found the menu to... More
