OCS Catering's Trafalgar Café on the Square set for re-launch

The Greater London Authority, which has worked with OCS since August 2009, felt that a refurbishment and re-launch of Café on the Square would improve its offer and raise awareness of its existence in the capital. In addition to a redesign including updated décor and an inside garden space, the site will now also allow corporate and private event hire for up to 80 people, all managed by OCS.

Found at the bottom of the square's central staircase, the café is minutes away from the National Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery, the Embankment and Whitehall, and serves an all-day "grab and go" offer, including coffee, sandwiches and cakes, and soup in the winter.

Commenting on the re-launch, Michael Wingham, general manager for the GLA contract, OCS Catering, said: "We are the only café on the world heritage site of [Trafalgar Square] and we're hoping that the re-launch will increase the visibility of the café beyond it too."

On the contract with GLA, he added: "We work in partnership to ensure that we're providing the best level of service and quality of produce in both City Hall and the Café on the Square."

As well as the GLA contracts, OCS also runs catering in hospitals and in January this year announced a £13m NHS facilities management contract extension.
