About
What a characterful town medieval Stratford is! Having a Giggling Squid here gave me the opportunity to put a tourist hat on and do all the things a tourist would. I’ve loved getting to know the area, and am constantly discovering new “favourite” things. We have a very loyal following in Stratford – people have naturally formed a bond with our Thai restaurant and team. The building itself is totally unique; big and beautiful with a long history dating back to Tudor times. Upstairs there’s an old stage that was part of an ancient theatre. Amazing!

We walked in and were greeted with smile straight away; the service and food were a very good standard. The setting was gorgeous, in a little old Tudor building. We would definitely return if we come back to Stratford.
