While the setting is pleasant and the table was nicely set with the vintage china, we did not think it was a great spread as other reviewers did. The sandwiches were fresh and nicely presented with a variety of fillings. There was far too much mustard on the ham filling and a random ( though possibly vintage,cheese and pineapple choice). The scones were nice but after that the baking looked very much shop bought rather than home baked. Fruit brack was something I'd never been served at afternoon tea before and neither of us tried it / like it. Pink French fancies and cut up Mr Kipling slices or similar were a disappointing offering. One other bun I tried that looked home baked was extremely sweet. We left most of the sweet stuff, and although we had seen others leaving with bags ( a nice idea) we didn't want to bring any home. One of the staff kindly followed us out to offer this but we declined. Obviously others have enjoyed it but we would return to other excellent afternoon teas that we have enjoyed elsewhere.

I have just spent a delightful afternoon at the Peppercorn with 7 family members. Lovely bright airy surroundings for afternoon tea. The table was beautifully set with matching china and a lovely tablecloth. The cake stands were full to capacity with a selection of fresh finger sandwiches, scones, buttered fruit bread, pastries and buns galore. Tea and coffee was served in China pots and these were refilled as often as required. The staff were Attentive but didn't loiter and make you feel uncomfortable. They were happy to have us sit and take our time and did not rush us to leave once we had eaten. An added bonus and lovely gesture was the doggy bags and boxes provided to take the leftovers home. Great value for money and the knowledge that everything was fresh and not recycled was greatly appreciated. In a nutshell a great place and a return visit will be made. No hesitation in recommending this wee gem.

My husband and I enjoyed a delightful selection of sandwiches, then scones and fruit loaf and lovely variety of bite size cake. Presentation and service was of a very high standard. Staff very friendly and accommodating. The best by far afternoon tea we have had. We will return and tell our friends. Didnt't realise such a nice little place existed in Comber..

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed afternoon tea in the Peppercorn Bistro today. It was beautifully presented and we were spoiled with the sandwich selection to start with. This was followed with lovely scones with jam and cream, boiled cake and other delightful fancies. As we were unable to finish everything, we were able to take it home.
I have eaten here before but this was a first for my friend. She would not hesitate to return on another occasion. This was her birthday treat and it was thoroughly enjoyed.
