Sold out!

We visited late on a cold, windy but thankfully dry Sunday afternoon with family. It looked like half the county had the same idea as the car park was full but we managed to get a table upstairs. The menu was somewhat limited simply because everything else had sold out! There were many things we... read more

I have been to the Cheerful Chilli many times on a evening and have always had a good time and a good meal (even if it has often been so cold we have had to keep our coats on!), we take a bottle of wine and love the blue cheese burger and roasted vegetables followed by delicious home made ice...

Visited few times with a gluten-free friend as they cater for coeliacs. The food is delicious even for a meat eater like me. Always have to explain to people how tasty the food is even though they don't use meat, they now serve alcohol which is great. They always pack up my left over pizza to take home as it's... More

Cheerful chilli is probably one of my favourite restaurants, they seamlessly transform from a humble (yet very good) coffee shop/cafe through the day to a lovely very informal relaxed restaurant through the evening. All food iv had here has been excellent and clearly had a lot of care put into it. Also the review someone has left with photos claiming... More

Ate at the Cheerful Chilli and overall had a great time. Being a veggie it was so nice to have lots of choice on a menu! I loved the inside decor, wooden beams decorated with fairy lights. The waitresses were polite and helpful. Beware the portions are massive! I could have just had a starter with a side salad and... More

We have visited on several Sundays over the winter after a nice long walk on the Chevin. I have looked at some of the reviews left and feel a few of the negative comments should be addressed. Tea is freshly and properly made, with tea leaves, in a pot. Who cares if there's nowhere to put the tea strainer except... More

This is the first time I've been to a vegetarian restaurant and was wasn't sure what to expect. What I didn't expect was the high quality and variety of the food. We had a great night and nothing was left. Four of us ate, 2 starters then we all had mains and puds. We had different things off the menu... More

This is a veggie restaurant with a variety of delicious dishes. Most of the savoury dishes are cheese focused which I love. They offer a banquet in which you get to try lots of their dishes- it does seem pricey (£18 a head) but it well worth it for the amount of food you get. It is rare that people... More

I loved this little place, a real hidden gem. It serves Veggie and Vegan food. I am vegan and found them to be very accommodating. I asked if they could make me a vegan garlic bread as on the menu it was listed as veggie, and they did and it was awesome. My entire meal was exceptionally gorgeous, and the... More
