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.

We are looking forward to our next visit. The staff all add to the experience well done.

We went last year and it was so good, the Christmas 🎄 show that we decided to go again, last year we had marvelous food, including fish and chips, this year the food was terrible, supposed to be z 'festive' afternoon tea. It was horrible sandwiches half per person with some strange slice of rubber in one of the sandwiches,
Tiny dreadful sausage rolls, shop bought scone and pre packed jam and cream. And a few celebration chocolates and a shop bought mince pie such a shame this could be little gold mine however, the food let them down badly, I have had some not so nice afternoon teas - however this was the worst. Most people on my table did not eat it. I left there feeling very hungry 😕
And for pudding a cornetto for £1.50 extra.😳 Whoever does the food, needs to look up what an afternoon tea looks like.
The entertainment was excellent, they put their heart and soul into performing, however, I found some of the volunteers a bit bossy...it is nice though that they give their time up.

Having been born on the island I am embarrassed to say that I had overlooked this wonderful place, tucked away in a quiet corner of Sheerness, I visited along with my husband and daughter for the first time today and was blown away, the volunteers were extremely welcoming, and readily shared their knowledge. I did not realise just how much history the Isle of Sheppey had to offer. The Heritage centre captures it well and I would highly recommend to anyone of any age who has a keen interest of the history of Sheppey to pay them a visit, a very interesting place indeed.

Can't really single out a highlight of the "Taking Care of Vegas 50th Anniversary of the Hawaiian Concert". From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, it was simply a great night out. The act was superb and the attention to detail those at The Criterion had gone to (every guest receiving a lei on entering, the table decorations, the light-sticks, the photocopies of the original playlist ...) was excellent. AND there was supper too! Smashing

Purchased tickets for my mum and her friend for the Christmas Variety Show. They go every year and always have a lovely time. Food, staff and entertainers are excellent.

I work for a Care Home and took several of our residents to the Criterion this week to see the Christmas Variety Show. It was absolutely wonderful. Amazing show, friendly and helpful staff, we have already booked several shows with the Criterion for next year. My only note would be that if you are going in a minibus or coach as we did, arrive in plenty of time as parking/loading/unloading is not easy due to the theatre not having its own carpark.

Wonderful evening at the Criterion!
It was as if we travelled back in time to 1956 and seen Buddy Holly in person.
Best act I have ever seen in lovely surroundings,what a gem of a place this is.
