Woking Shopping, comprising the Peacocks Centre and Wolsey Place, 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, next door to Primark, 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.
Established in 2009, the Shouly entrepreneurs founded The Tea Terrace with the aim of reinventing the concept of English tea rooms, making the tradition of enjoying afternoon tea more affordable than offerings at five-star luxury hotels. They have been successfully operating four branches of The Tea Terrace in Guildford, Cobham and Central London, with the London branches being located in Oxford Street and on Victoria Street.
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 huge range of delicious Tex-Mex starters, main courses and desserts.
The news follows the announcement of the opening of independent refill shop Bare + Fair at 52 Peacocks Centre and the signing of a new 5000 sq ft Tesco store at 31-33 Commercial Way, due to open later this year.
