Giggling Squid, the Business Growth Fund backed Thai restaurant group, has confirmed it is to open in Beaconsfield in early autumn, as flagged up by MCA in February.

The 200-cover restaurant will be the 22nd for the group, which is run by husband and wife team Andy and Pranee Laurillard.

Andy Laurillard told MCA earlier this year he expected to reach 30 restaurants this year, and was targeting affluent commuter towns.
