Woking Shopping has announced the opening of The Tea Terrace Restaurant and Tea Room, as well as the opening of its sister brand’s debut restaurant The Ol’ West Grill and Diner.
The two restaurant brands are owned by husband-and-wife duo Rowena and Ehab Shouly, bolstering Woking Shopping’s “rapidly” growing and varied food and beverage offering.
The new Woking tea terrace, representing the brand’s fifth and biggest so far, offers 120 covers and offers a “fairy-tale” inspired interior design with three “life-size” golden cinderella carriages, as well as high-back leather ‘throne’ chairs and sofas.
The Ol’ West Grill and Diner is set to open in December, occupying a 2,523 sq ft unit with space for 55 covers.
It revealed the diner will serve “high-quality” Argentinian steaks as well as gourmet Wagyu beef burgers and a “huge range” of Tex-Mex starters, main courses and desserts.
Councillor Ayesha Azad, leader of Woking Borough Council, said: “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.”
Ehab Shouly, managing director of Shouly Enterprises, owners of The Tea Terrace and The Ol’ West Grill and Diner, added: “We are very confident in the potential of Woking Shopping Centre so we’ve decided to open not one, but two restaurants right next to each other. We look forward to a bright future for The Tea Terrace and The Ol’West Grill & Diner here in Woking.”
