The Thai Square Company, the operator of Thai restaurants, has acquired two sites in the South East from Laurel Pub Company for a combined price of close to £3.5m. M&C Report has learnt that the fast growing restaurant chain, has acquired the Dorset Arms in Sevenoaks, and The Greyhound in Bromley, both in Kent, from the high street pub operator. The company is expected to start conversion work on the two sites early next year, with both expected to open during the Spring, becoming the group’s 14th and 15th restaurants, respectively. The group will open its 13th site early next year in St Albans, after acquiring the former 9,700 sq ft Tudor Tavern site in the town, last month. The company acquired the site for a fee over the £2m guide price. The group will also open its 12th site in January, in Marlow, Buckinghamshire. The four new restaurants will join a stable of 11 other restaurants, 10 of which are in London with a further outlet in Windsor, Berkshire. The group's flagship venue is on Cockspur Street, Trafalgar Square. AG&G acted on behalf of the vendor.
