Old Schoolhouse Inn100 Ballydrain Road, Comber, County Antrim, BT23 6EA
As you would expect from the name, this family run restaurant with rooms is housed in a converted and greatly-extended school; and the restaurant retains much of this original atmosphere including cast-iron radiators, high windows and even the old wallclock.
They describe their food-style as French 'cuisine de granmere' style - but anyone old enough in the 1960's & '70's will recognise many of the dishes. However, this is in no way a criticism, as the end results are good.
Expect the likes of 'Grilled Goats Cheese served on a Slice of Apple with Wild Honey & Walnut Salad'; 'Prawn & Avocado Cocktail' and 'Moules Mariniere' among the starters.
Perhaps 'Pan-Fried Fillet of Chicken with a Sherry & Mushroom Sauce'; 'Sea Bass Fillets with Baby Capers, Toasted Pinenuts & Anchovy Butter'; 'Fillet Steak with a Crushed Peppercorn Sauce'; and 'Crispy Roast Half Duckling and Orange & Cointreau Jus' listed among the mains.
Desserts such as ''Fresh Fruit Pavlova'; 'Deep-Dish Bread & Butter Pudding with Custard & Cream' and 'Strawberry & Almond Tart with Crème Anglaise & Fresh Cream' might be there to tempt yo if you still have room.
