Longridge wine estate and restaurant recently received a Certificate of Excellence from leading travel website TripAdvisor. This prestigious award is granted to only 10% of the top-performing listed global businesses that have earned consistently high ratings from TripAdvisor travellers.
Tripadvisor.com is considered to be the leading social travel network in the world and in 2011 the company claimed that over 100 million travellers have used the site. Now in its third year, the award celebrates hospitality excellence and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor.
The Certificate of Excellence was awarded to Longridge restaurant as over 90% of the reviews recommended the restaurant and commended its food, service, value and atmosphere. To qualify, businesses must maintain scores of four or more out of five by reviewers, something that only a select few manage to achieve.
According to Jasper Raats from Longridge Wine Estate, they are delighted with this acknowledgement. “It is a great honour for us to receive this award and it shows that all our hard work is paying off when we receive this kind of feedback from our guests. The restaurant prides itself on its classic country cuisine, inspired by the freshest produce available locally and from our kitchen garden. Our consultant Marilou Marais and chef Bruce von Pressentin hand-pick our staff for their warm personalities to make guests feel welcome and then train them extensively to ensure the best service. Combined with our range of award-winning wines and stunning setting, this is proving to be the recipe for success,” mentions Raats.
