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

We aim to visit Cheeful Chilli every six months or so. Once again, fab food, really friendly service and good prices. Vegetarian restaurant so please don't go thinking they have any meat/fish options! Great menu and deserts to die for. They are currently rennovating the next door barn and expanding into this for social functions etc. Tricky to find though... More

I was looking forward to a light lunch last saturday and as we live in otley we thought we would give CC a try. Bad start no parking. Lots of building work going on and a cluttered muddy entrance courtyard. Liked what we saw inside. Its quite intimate farm house affair. Sumptuous cakes in display stand and a proper barista... More

Had a lovely time at Cheerful Chilli before Christmas. I've not been before and I didn't know what to expect from the food as I never choose vegetarian! Everything we had was packed with flavour and the desserts were amazing. If you're after fine dining, this is not the place but it's a great casual place for couples and small... More

I've several times now, with big parties and with a couple of friends, each time the reception has been warm and inviting. The quality of the food is great, with wonderful blends of flavours to suit everyone. Very good value for money. I recommend trying whether you're a vegetarian or not.

Went with friends on our 3rd trip to the Cheerful Chilli. Not very well signposted so if you are heading there on an evening from Otley centre and don't know where it is, better keep your eyes well peeled! Great friendly welcome by the girls behind the counter. Quick efficient (and again friendly) service. Food choice (strictly veggie options people,... More
