We’ve earned a 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence!

Posted on

We were over the moon recently when we were informed that we have received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award.

The accolade, which honours hospitality excellence, is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor, and is extended to qualifying businesses worldwide. Only the top-performing 10 per cent of businesses listed on TripAdvisor receive this prestigious award!

To qualify for a Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five, as reviewed by travellers on TripAdvisor, and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months. Additional criteria include the volume of reviews received within the last 12 months.

We’d like to thank all of our customers, past and present, who have taken the time to write a review on TripAdvisor after dining or staying with us here at The Rag. Please, keep the reviews coming and let’s get The Rag to the #1 Restaurant in Cannock top spot!

Shop_chiller Cab_310513The shop-build is really gathering momentum now, with the inside all kitted out with a proper floor, a back door, front door and even some snazzy baskets, just waiting to be filled with produce!

We have a chiller cabinet in place, although at the moment it’s doubling up as a tool storage unit. Fear not, in a matter of weeks it will be bursting with delicious deli meats, cheeses and other local produce to tempt you with.

The Deli at The Rag Country Inn, Cannock ChaseEveryone has worked really hard, sometimes in the most dreadful weather conditions. It’s just typical that now we’re working in the inside of the shop, the sun has come out and is cracking the flags!

We’re aiming to open the deli in mid-June. We’ll keep you posted as to any special events planned for the grand opening. If all else fails, we can always rely on the Laird and Lady of Glencairn to do the honours for us ….
