About Cheerful Chilli

If you’re heading between Leeds and Otley on East Chevin Road you’re in for a treat if you stop by Cheerful Chilli, a vegetarian and vegan restaurant and tea rooms right by Otley Chevin Forest Park. The dishes that this friendly restaurant presents are drawn from all over the world, but you can expect each to be made from homegrown vegetables, locally-produced food and Fairtrade products. Set inside a beautiful old Yorkshire farmhouse, the space is also ideal for weddings and celebrations in the adjacent Chilli Barn private venue.

More about Cheerful Chilli, Leeds

With its warm decor and friendly service, Glasgow’s Ember Restaurant feels like a home away from home, and this relaxing vibe combined with the menu packed full of Mediterranean favourites keeps hungry Glaswegians coming back to its location in the city centre again and again. From German schnitzel to French confit duck, plus an array of Italian pastas and pizzas and market-fresh seafood, Ember Restaurant’s menu caters to all tastes.

We recommend beginning with the chilli tiger prawns before moving on to the signature dish: Ember Sticks (flame-grilled skewers of meat and fish served on a skillet with a tangy tomato sauce, vegetables and a side of chips, rice or mashed potato). Finish it all off with some creme brulee, or for an extra decadent treat go for the chef’s fondue (fresh strawberries, banana, chopped waffles and marshmallow with a Belgian chocolate dipping sauce). Situated on Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow’s city centre, a trip to Ember Restaurant is an ideal way to end a day spent shopping in the city, or to fuel up before hitting the nearby pubs and clubs.

Great selection of vegetarian food and friendly service in a beautiful location. Definitely worth going for the jerk halloumi. Great selection of Yorkshire gins too.

The food was delicious. We had sweet corn fritters for starters and jerk halloumi for mains. More than enough to eat. Staff friendly and easy going. Lovely place. Definitely going again.
