Woking Shopping has announced the opening of The Tea Terrace Restaurant & Tea Room, as well as the imminent opening of its sister brand’s debut restaurant The Ol’ West Grill & Diner.
Located adjacent to one another on the upper concourse of the Peacocks Centre in Woking, the two restaurant brands are the brainchild of husband-and-wife duo Rowena and Ehab Shouly, and bolster Woking Shopping’s rapidly growing and varied F&B offering.
The new 4,123 sq ft Woking Tea Terrace, which represents the brand’s fifth and biggest so far, offers 120 covers and offers ‘fairy-tale inspired interior design’ with three life-size golden Cinderella Carriages.
The restaurant will also be home to the new generation of The Tea Terrace’s robotic waitress Theresa, which will start serving customers in January 2022.
Located adjacent to The Tea Terrace, Shouly Enterprises will also be opening the first restaurant of their new brand, The Ol’ West Grill & Diner, in December. Occupying a 2,523 sq ft unit with space for 55 covers, the debut Wild West-themed American steakhouse, grill and diner will serve high-quality Argentinian steaks as well as gourmet Wagyu beef burgers and a range of Tex-Mex starters, main courses and desserts.
Councillor Ayesha Azad, leader of Woking Borough Council, commented: “The opening of these two independent operators will enhance Woking Shopping’s already strong F&B offering and is testament to the momentum we are creating in the town centre. Each restaurant adds something unique to Woking and we are sure residents and visitors to Woking will enjoy dining in both.”
Ehab Shouly, managing director of Shouly Enterprises, owners of The Tea Terrace and The Ol’ West Grill & Diner, added: “It is amazing to be opening both of our restaurants in Woking town centre. We have always eyed Woking as our next location, as Woking town centre serves a broad and wealthy catchment area and is well placed to become a major destination due to the significant investment Moyallen and Woking Borough Council are making.”
