Fresh NEW LOOK for Oswald’s

17th May 2021

We have been busy completely re-styling our Cumbrian Food Hall café during the latest lockdown closure.  ‘Oswald’s’ on the first floor of the Cumbrian food hall is now back open serving brunch, lunch and a new range of ‘baked by us’ cakes.

The space has been completely transformed with upholstered booth seating, all new tables and chairs and a stylish pendant and filament bulb lighting scheme.  The original open plan minimalist design has now been segmented by an innovative metal and oak frame which has been designed to give diners more privacy.

In addition to this Cranstons we have created new ‘in house’ bakery adjoined to the cafe which will provide fresh brownies, cakes and scones for both the Café and the Food Hall below. Naomi Morgan Cranstons product developer has been the driving force behind the new bakery and cake range. Naomi said ‘’ Cranston’s hope that the exiting new cake range, baked by us in’ house will grow Oswald’s mid-morning and afternoon trade as customer realise they can call up for a great quality artisan cake and a barista coffee when doing their shop’’.

Joe Bowness, Café Manager ‘The whole Oswald’s team is really excited about the re-opening, we can’t wait to show everyone our fresh new look.  We know Oswald’s customers really value the quality of the food and our friendly team but we can’t wait for them to see the stylish new interior and the new cake counter which will be packed with brownies and cakes, baked by us’’

Martin Jones, Deputy Managing Director explains why Cranstons have invested ‘’Oswald’s opened back in 2009 and has been busy trading 7 days a week ever since. During the first lockdown last year we revamped the kitchen but left the customer space untouched. Although having to close up again in December was a blow to us all we were determined to achieve something positive during the closure. We wanted to give our customers and our dedicated team a new space to enjoy as we emerge from lockdown. We feel we have created a café experience we can be proud of both now and in the years to come’

Oswalds is back OPEN NOW and will trade 7 days a week 8am-5pm  Monday to Saturday and 10am – 4pm on Sundays.
