They will open in Q4 this year, occupying the former Grillstock / Pizza Express unit within the heart of the square, joining Mowgli who are due to open within the scheme on 12th August.
Their arrival will add to the vibrant and eclectic mix of strong, independent retailers and restaurateurs including Bodega Cantina, Kai, Tonne, The Bottle Garden, The Zero Waste Store and St. Martins Coffee / Crafty Burger.

Giggling Squid will trade from c.2500 sq. ft. on the ground floor with additional balconied first floor seating. They will utilise the entrance fronting the Square, introducing bi-fold shopfronts and also open up the period entrance on Cank St, helping to improve footfall around St. Martins and The Lanes in general.

Martin Herbert of SPACE – Retail Property Consultants, who advised SPG, commented: “Giggling Squid will bring to Leicester a fantastic, high quality, Thai dining experience and their choice of St. Martins, being complementary to the other dining offers within the Square, will add to the vibrant and ever-increasing offer available in The Lanes. The market is moving away from the mass-branded Casual dining offers found in so many shopping centres and the inclusion of Giggling Squid at St Martins is a testament to the work that both Shearer Property Group and Leicester City Council have put into continually improving this unique part of the city centre.”

Martin Herbert added: “Now that Giggling Squid are signed up, we want to find one more appropriate restaurant operator for the last unit in the Square”.
