Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This is our favourite place in the country to have lunch!! - we live in Gloucestershire and have day out with lunch here and then walk dogs at Witterings. Perfect day!! The food is always excellent and at affordable price so we always buy something...from deli to take home. The coffee is so good and we know as our son imports and roasts coffee from all over the world so expectations are high!! Anyone can make good food and charge a fortune but it takes skill to make food this good and not charge crazy prices!! Thank you!!More

Favourite place for coffee/brunch/lunch — to eat in or take away. Delicious salads, soups and sandwiches and all sorts of sumptuous delights to buy in the deli.

A charming cafe/deli, serving a great choice of sandwiches (served with crisps and a small salad) and with a good stock of unusual pates and cheeses. Clearly popular with locals - always a good sign. Take-out service available. Deserving of its high rating on TripAdvisor.

While traveling through England and going for my last days to the boat in Dover I stayed for 1 night in Midhurst. I am a very early person therefore I was very happy to find this little coffee and pastry shop, Comestibles! Open at 8...o'clock, seats outside and inside and the best cappucino I have had since my travel by car last 10 days 😃. I was asked if I wanted an extra shot of espresso in it. Ofcours me being dutch and love strong coffee. I had 3 cappu's, a lemon chizzle, my book to read, and a chat with other people being there. It was a great way to start my day during this hot summer 🤗. Thank you.More

We were driving through and needed a bite to eat so looked on trip advisor for recommendations. Thus place is just amazing! The food was so good. We enjoyed it so much we then bought food from the deli to take away for our evening...meal. The quiche tasted like nothing I had had before, the pastry was delicious and so crisp, the bread was delicious and everything else just could be faulted. The staff were friendly and customer service was brilliant. Just wish we lived closer and could visit more often! Thank you for a lovely tasty experience.More

A little gem opposite the market square. I haven’t had a better coffee in Midhurst. Lovely staff and a good selection of fresh deli food and store cupboard items. Good range of chocolates etc for gifts.

Worth seeking out this lovely deli as it's not in the busy high street, but in the old part of town. Coffee was great, as were the sandwiches and we took away a tart for later. Friendly and good service.

I've been riding my bicycle to Comestibles for a couple of years now and have got to know all the friendly staff. I can highly recommend everything they offer and I am one of many who are addicted to their homemade Bakewell tarts. Yesterday I...tried and thoroughly enjoyed the new lemon Bakewell. They also stock an interesting array of goods in the shop.More

Hello, Yes, we allow dogs in the cafe if they are clean and well behaved. I would always ask the people you sit next to though out of courtesy. Thankyou
