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.

I planned a surprise 'Tea Party' with Trevor the owner as a thank you to my friends for all their love & support this year. I knew I wanted a bespoke menu & not the 'Afternoon Tea' or 'Cream Tea', which are just as wonderful....I was so pleased to discover that a familiar high street tearoom 'Church View Tearooms' would be just the ticket. As a local I knew by reputation the quality of the food having gone there when I was in finer fettle, the setting, the crockery & ambience would all fit the image I had of what I wished. When I rang Trevor, the owner, explaining how I wanted to have a traditional tea party that you evoke from your childhood with trifle, fairy cakes, jam tarts, sausage rolls & cheese straws, he made the dream a reality, anything I asked was possible, and finer details were discussed to ensure all went well. Everything that came to our table was freshly made or freshly baked to perfection. My centre piece was a Victoria Sponge, which was beyond words to describe how it tasted, it was the 'piece de resistance', everything left was packed up to come home too with boxes he provided. My friends could not help but relish at every mouthful they took. I can not recommend 'Church View Tearooms' highly enough. The host, Trevor & staff saw to our every need, he's a lovely host and that adds to the whole experience. I think we should support our local businesses in this way, if I had never enquired about my bespoke Tea Party it would have never happened. So here is the biggest thankyou to an excellent five star deserving business. We have a real gem in our high street, don't miss out on a visit!!More

I absolutely LOVE this quaint little Tearoom tucked away by the tranquility of The Church in Ashford Town away from all the hustle and bustle of the High Street with outside seating beside the Church. Makes me feel like Ive been transported back in time...to a much slower and simpler way of life. Extremely relaxing place to get away from all the stresses of life. The Tearoom itself is so quirky with all its original features. A lovely historical building that you can picture how people used to live whilst you sip your traditionally served tea. Perfect place for total relaxtion. The Tearoom staff are so friendly and caring too. They pay real personal attention to their customers and the Tea and variety of food is delicious. Its a MUST visit for anyone that wants to relax and enjoy a warm welcome.More

I wanted to create a new family tradition, So I decided afternoon tea for the ladies of the family was in order!! (2 x children 2 x Adults) couldn't think of anywhere else I wanted to go, so the Church View Tearooms it was. I've...been in here for a number of years now, to many various occasions and have NEVER been let down. Afternoon tea was simply delicious EVERYTHING was made fresh, orders were taken for the younger members of the family for what sandwiches they would like, the Scones were simply out of this world, to be fair everything was quite simply amazing. Trevor and the team can't be faulted. Thank you so much for making our afternoon amazing. We will be back. Kim SpencerMore

My daughter and I had afternoon tea here today for her birthday, We had a lovely big table in the window overlooking the beautiful church . The sandwiches were tasty and so fresh, the scones were still warm and tasted amazing with the clotted cream...& jam. The Victoria sponge was put into a take away box as we couldn’t eat another bite. The tea from a proper tea pot tasted so nice. This quaint little place is great and well worth a visit, we will definitely be returning. The staff are friendly and the owner found time to have a little chat with us. Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tea and will be telling friends and family to visit too. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.More

We had a family visit today to the Church View tea rooms. There were 9 of us in total and we all had afternoon tea. The food and atmosphere was lovely as always. Trevor and his team are all very welcoming and can't do enough...for you. We never felt rushed at any time and it was really nice touch to be all seated around a large table so we could all talk together, unlike some other places we've been to, where we have had to sit on long tables making it less sociable. I would highly recommend this Tea rooms to anyone wishing to have good food at a fair price with great hosts. Thanks again allMore
