Very good Vegetarian Restaurant with good varied menu and rustic feel. I'm not vegetarian but can always find something I like. Used to be able to bring your own wine/beer which was a big plus - no longer as they've now got a licence and so only choice is usual overpriced restaurant wines and beers.

We've been meaning to visit this place for quite a while and finally had the chance to do so recently. I must say the food and service is top notch. A rustic venue with a few tables outside. Really worth a visit for exciting vegetarian food.

My first visit to the Cheerful Chilli was last Saturday with my family. The meal was delicious. We all had something different. It made a nice change to have vegatarian food. My grandsons enjoyed the chocolate nemesis dessert! Would go again when in Yorkshire.

The mixed reviews about here didn't put me off going. After a good walk around the Otley Chevin Forest, you just want something to quench your thirst. I agree that the place could be cleaner and it seems more like a youth club inside, with the number of teenagers gathered behind the till and chilling. So I ordered a coffee... More

I went to Cheerful Chilli last night with 3 others. My husband, an absolute carnivore went along rather reluctantly but after the starter course was converted!!! The food was absolutely delicious. We all chose different starters, mains and desserts and had a taste of each others meals and enjoyed it all. The food was fresh, colourful and so tasty. The... More

We hired the barn for my daughter's wedding and had a magical evening. The team's service, attention to detail, delicious food and superb setting made it a very special occasion. It really went well and in the couple of days setting up beforehand we were sustained by amazing cakes and paninis (stilton aand pear!). We have eaten there on several... More

Great vegetarian food (no meat). Be prepared for basic surroundings, although I think that this adds to the charm of the place. The banquet is especially good value for money and you get to try a number of different dishes.

Very disappointed with our visit. Food took ages to come and was not good quality. The gluten free meal requested (there were only 2 choices) came with a huge chunk of normal bread. The pizza was dreadful.

Upon booking a week ago for 730 we waited till 8.50 for our first course. Very panicked and flustered staff. Ordered rose wine....had run out....... Starters were ok. Main arrived 40 minutes later. Was equally nice. However totally ignored and never came to check the food was ok. Got the dessert menu and quite frankly couldn't wait till after 10pm... More
