We are regular visitors to Otley and didn't know the Cheerful Chilli existed, despite it having been here for about 20 years. As a vegetarian, the idea of going to a restaurant where I can choose anything on the menu is such a luxury that...More

very efficient and friendly service. Good atmosphere. Good to be in a restaurant that sells only vegetarian or vegan food. And such very good and well cooked food at that. Only sorry I did not have room for pudding. Wine good and reasonably priced.
