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. Martin Jones, Deputy Managing Director

From open-plan to segmented space

Oswald's cafe is on the first floor of Cranston's food hall. 

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.

Banquette run refreshed and recovered

The existing run of fixed seating on site was removed and unupholstered, then recovered with seat in Panaz Remake Highland and the back upholstered in Highland Stripe. Additional booth seating was installed to match the existing run and create even more privacy for diners. 

The table tops are Sand Gladstone Oak laminate from Egger with with Natural Halifax Oak Q1180 RO Edging. Light in appearance and easy to clean, both stylish and extremely practical for busy cafe use. 

Lounge area

Further zoning has been created with a lounge area in front of the large glass window. Elane lounge chairs upholstered in Panaz Marna 103 Denim with legs in Light Oak/Ash stain pair with small nesting tables; the perfect setup for watching the world go by with a cake and a coffee.
