This place has a lovely atmosphere, and very good food! You can also take the food away with you. Mostly soups, sandwiches and salads, all freshly prepared!

I was given a voucher as a birthday present. The staff were so helpful and listened to the dietary requirements of my daughter. Lovely homely atmosphere and superb afternoon tea.

Everyone raves about this place but it is not great, dirty cutlery for a start and understaffed. Will probably visit again but was disappointed. Good craft shop and art.

The Old Post Office is within walking distance of our home and is a frequent stop on our walks. Lovely food from soups, salads, cooked meals to scones and tray bakes. There is a deli where you can purchase a wide range of items served in the cafe and also a gift shop with lots of interesting and varied items.... More

This place attracts a lot of custom and therefore must offer people what they want but I always find it cramped, overcrowded and badly serviced. Tea/coffee and snacks are fine - no complaints but surroundings are important and I just can't like this place.

This is a very cute venue with a wide selection on the menu, including gluten free options for breakfast. Our breakfasts were delicious and we will definitely be back!

We have just returned from having afternoon tea at the old post office. We had a delicious selection of savouries and sweet treats. The old post office was very quaint and very clean. It also had an attached craft shop and a shop that sold homemade products to take away. We had a very warm welcome and the service was... More

Every time I come to Northern Ireland I always make a beeline for the Old Post Office at Comber. Beautiful food, reasonably priced and the setting is cosy. It's very popular so you have to get there early if you want a good spot to eat.

lots to look at, separate shop. The food is home made and very tasty. The salads do not disappoint and the helpings are generous. There is also outside seating to be enjoyed on a sunny day
