This tearooms is in a lovely spot and does lovely cakes, and has soya milk, but the service we received yesterday (Sunday afternoon) was very poor. It took 15 minutes to obtain a cup of tea, a soft drink and 2 pieces of cake, even though there was no queue at the counter when we arrived. We were kept waiting... More

I have been to Cheerful Chilli lots of times now and always enjoy it. There were 15 of us celebrating a birthday and we had the banquet. The amount of food is fantastic and you'll definitely go home full! Our group included 2 coeliacs and a vegan and our needs were very well catered for. The chocolate nemesis cake at... More

Good food, plentiful & hot. I had chimichanga which was good. Good value for 6 of us but service slow as it got busy (sat with mucky plates for an hour & waited half hour for bill). They ran out of fruit juice which gave little options for the non pop drinkers.

Went for dinner with a friend one evening - lovely friendly staff, great menu and food is gorgeous - portion sizes seem to have increased since my last visit which is always a bonus! Highly recommend although one down side is the lack of signage so in the dark it's a blink and you'll miss it - expect to slam... More

Exciting, diverse menu, all dishes equally delicious. Attentive, friendly and knowledgeable service. Fantastic value. Lovely setting and lots of atmosphere. Great vegan options too. Soft drinks priced very reasonably, not your usual hiked up prices...

After hearing rave reviews about the Cheerful Chilli I was keen to go and try it out for myself so booked in to the tearooms for a birthday lunch for 6 people with 2 babies. Even when booking I felt a bit dubious as it was taken very hurriedly and I had to catch the man on the other end... More
