Food Review: The Peppercorn Bistro, Comber

The peppercorn bistro comber food

The Peppercorn Bistro in Comber is on Castle Street just off the main square.  It’s a busy road for traffic, so outdoor seating is limited, however inside there is more than enough seats to welcome a coach party!

Decorated just like an aunties’ dinning room with feature wallpaper and laminate flooring, The Peppercorn Bistro has two seating areas.  One with standard cafe seats and the other with comfier dining room seating.

A big cup of coffee from Robert Roberts, not too strong with a mellow flavour.

Both of us picked the tuna, red onion and mayo sandwich on granary bread. A surprising addition of a side of chips.  Crispy chips and a healthy amount of filling for the sandwich. The salad leaves looked a bit like ourselves on this hot day though!The peppercorn bistro comber foodFresh bread with a filling that had a good balance of flavour. Not too much onion or tuna that’s eeked out with mayo to make it go further.

Unfortunately we had no room for any of their enticing traybakes.


A good sandwich and cup of coffee. Quick and friendly service as well. A tasty sandwich which was surprisingly filling. Clean toilet as well.
