Restaurant - Vegetarian, free entry


The Cheerful Chilli was founded in May 2000 in order to provide good quality vegetarian meals in a relaxing atmosphere. There wholesome and generous dishes are freshly prepared to order, many are of a mexican theme but the menu shows an eclectic mix of great foods from all over the world. The popular bring your own alcohol policy supports the cafe's value for money ethos. The cheeful chilli always make an effort to use locally purchased food, homegrown vegetables and fairtrade products whenever possible.

The cafe is situated in converted Yorkshire farm buildings with a courtyard for outdoor dining. They cater for individual tables and large party bookings and offer a wide range of homemade desserts and ice creams as well as vegan options. The atmosphere in the cafe is lively but intimate with friendly staff providing a warm and welcoming service.

Over the years we have built a high reputation in the local area and beyond and are regularly booked for weeks or months in advance. The Cheerful Chilli aims to constantly improve with new dishes added regularly whilst still retaining our commitment to quality and value.
