A 1950s-style American roadside diner and motel will be opening down the road to Faringdon this week.

Mollie’s Motel and Diner will open its doors on January 30 to passing motorists on the Shrivenham Road A420, to give them a classic all-American experience, serving Yankee favourites like cheesy nachos, waffles with maple syrup, and Mac & Cheese.

It will also be running a drive-through to order takeaway burgers, will have filter coffee on the house, and offer affordable rooms for weary travellers who need to stop over for the night.

The first Mollie’s branch is part of London-based Quentin Restaurants and Soho House & Co.

Founder and CEO of the company Nick Jones, who is from Oxfordshire, has big ambitions for the diner after opening a string of successful joints in London.

“It’s been a long-standing passion project of mine to have a go at re-inventing the British roadside experience," he said.

“From opening Cafe Boheme in 1992, to Babington and Soho Farmhouse, I like looking at how we can change the way things are done and improve them for the customer, my aim with the first Mollie’s Motel and Diner is to offer affordable style for everyone to eat, drink and sleep over.

“My vision was to create an affordable place for everyone to enjoy. Whether you’re a couple, a family or travelling for work, Mollie’s offers a place to drive thru, eat in and sleep over.

“I want this to be the blueprint for the future of Soho House; using technology to create an even more streamlined experience, from the moment you book right through to closing your door for the night.”

The motel has seventy-nine bedrooms, including interconnected family and bunk rooms, done by Soho House Design, and are only £50 a night for the first three months after opening and will be £75 at the standard rate.

The classic ‘50s decor has been modernised to give a contemporary feel, as well the the booking system which has done away with the classic paper and notepad Hollywood fans might have expected.

Reservations can only be made through the Mollie’s app or website, and used for guests to check-in and out, order food and unlock their rooms with keyless entry, and for diners to book tables and place takeaway orders.

If the first Mollie's Diner is a success the company is looking to take it into city and town centres.

Mollie's Diner will be welcoming guests from January 30. To find out more go to molliesmotel.com
