Food absolutely brilliant - so tasteful. Service a little slow, but needed time to digest between courses anyway! Ambience - nice, relaxed and casual with my taste of music. Seating - really need cushions to enable a longer, more comfortable evening. Overall....I am sure that we will be visiting many times in the future.

A nice little vegetarian restaurant with excellent enchiladas in particular and good service, given that we were a large group.

We attended a wedding reception in the Cheerful Chilli's barn and, being a carnivore, I had some misgivings about the food that would be served. But the spread was amazing with, probably, 20 different vegetarian "mixtures" (for want of a better word) enclosed in little pastry cases as well as a couple of hot dishes including enchiladas. The flavours were... More

Been to this place a few times after walking/running on the Chevin. It's on a great location and the food is pretty good. However, the service REALLY lets it down. Everything from plain old unfriendly staff to them swearing at each other in the kitchen when we've kids with us. It's such a shame, because it could be a superb... More

Hi there. Really pleased you like our food and so sorry about the staff conversations you heard. We take our customer service really seriously and I can assure you it won"t happen again. Staff were very upset to read your comments and would like us to pass on their apologies too. Hope you come back again soon. More

Nine of us went to this vegetarian restaurant last night, about half of the party were vegetarian. We had the "banquet" meal which was a selection of all 3 courses. The food was really delicious and more than we could eat! The nachos and enchiladas were particularly yummy and the desserts all tasted home made and the cheesecake and ice... More

I ate here as part of a group of 5 and we had the sharing menu. I have to admit that I had expected the food in a vegetarian restaurant to be somewhat bland with limited options but this was not the case at all. It was all delicious an there was lots of it. The only improvement I would... More

On our visit to the cheerful chilli the food was very good, large portions, well cooked and imaginative.The ingredients seemed to be fresh, and the presentation was fine. On approaching the table, I could see that the glassware was very grubby, and the walls were stained with splashes of old food .The room was very cold. We had three pieces... More

It was worth travelling an hour to this restaurant. Usually there are one or two things at most for veggies in pubs and restaurants. This is all freshly made with desserts and cakes to die for. The mezzo starter for two was like a meal on its own amazing. Staff friendly and attentive. Surroundings warm and relaxing. Food prices soooo... More

Been coming here for nearly 10years, got recommended by someone from work because she loved the fact she could bring her own booze! Being a veggie it soon became my favourite restaurant for special occasions, I even buy the spicy chocolate chilli cake for Christmas Day and the extra creamy chocolate cake for birthdays...Mmm!
