Café Oswald’s at Cranstons

Cranston’s Cumbrian Foodhall is home to Oswald’s, our kitchen and café where a team of passionate and talented people prepare and serve tasty dishes made with our favourite ingredients – the best produce from local farms and producers.

It’s a perfect place to eat, drink and relax when you’ve shopped in our foodhall or if you’re simply looking for a great foodie destination. Relax with a great brew and taste our Cumbrian inspired menu full of tasty dishes.

Our master butchers’ skill takes pride of place – using only the finest cuts and products – together with the expertise of our chefs to create great tasting dishes. If you’d like something lighter, you can enjoy a slice of something sweet.

We are open every day from breakfast to teatime, so join us for a great Cumbrian welcome.

“Always a lovely experience and superb food! Full English Breakfast tastes amazing and is presented very well – love the mushrooms. Everyone is seated by a waiter or the manager as all staff are extremely friendly. Love the art exhibitions as well.”
