We've been to the Cheerful Chilli a number of times now and really like the place. The food is good and the atmosphere great but please don't go expecting 4 star service or presentation that's not what this place is about and it's none the worse for it. What you should expect is good quality, fresh food with flair in a "comfortable" rural setting served with warmth and feeling. This time we went with a big group and were in the upstairs room which created a great ambience but because of the size of the group service was a little hit and miss.

For all it's idiosyncrasies a great place for a meal out!

We called in for afternoon tea & a snack on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
The location is ideal,just opposite one of the car parks for Otley Chevin. This is the ideal spot to go when walking on the Chevin.
Other reviewers have commented on the standard of seating for main meals.
For an afternoon snack, the outdoor seating is rustic & what you would expect.
Prices are very reasonable for the excellent quality of the home made food. The range of cakes & snacks on offer is enough to satisfy all tastes.
Staff are friendly & efficient.
We'll call in again.

This is the 4th time I have visited and thought I must review. A simply fab little veggie restaurant that cooks real food at good prices. Service is normally good although they are always busy and sometimes you have to flag down the waitresses. Always worth a visit. Negatives are a corkage fee (money for nothing) and hard wood chairs.

I came here for my Birthday in February with a large group of friends.

We were seated at a large table upstairs which is really cosy and quite private. I am not a vegetarian and nor were a lot of the people which were in our group but we all had a fantastic time and found the food out of this world. We opted for the banquet and it wall all simply delicious. I especially loved the caramlised onion tarts, nachos/salsa and of course the puddings :)

There was more than enough food for all of us and the servings were very generous. I like that you can take your own alcohol so then at least you can take a bottle that you like rather than paying restaurant prices for not a very nice bottle.

I am yet to visit during the day but i am looking forward to doing so after a walk on the Chevin.

I look forward to booking and eating here again very soon! Love the place!
