Here are some examples of our partnerships.
The Francis Crick Institute
One of the largest research facilities housing up to 2,000 people in a state of the art building in the trendiest part of London right now; Kings Cross. Graysons worked with the Francis Crick to mobilise and now operate a modern and relevant catering offer for the opening of the building including a large scale staff restaurant, an artisan coffee shop, a public café, and extensive hospitality and events.
The British Library
At the British Library Graysons manage the catering services both in St Pancras and Boston Spa.
In London the Library sits within its own iconic listed building and receives 1.6 million visitors per year. We manage the busy public restaurant serving a range of modern hot meals, salad bars, soups, artisan sandwiches, cakes, and sweet treats.
In the main café within the Library we serve artisan coffee, cakes, light meals and salads, and we also operate a café on the Piazza as an artisan coffee stop with amazing homemade cakes, as well as the Members’ Room and Members’ Bar serving salads and small plates, grazing sharing platters, afternoon teas, and modern alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.Additionally, this week we have completed a major project at the Library, where Graysons has invested capital to build a brand new 150 cover public restaurant.
This has now opened and Graysons will continue to refurbish the other public catering outlets within the Library.
Graysons have been catering for QVC ever since they moved to their state of the art broadcast and UK headquarters in Chiswick Park. The challenge was to ensure we opened with a wow and we certainly did that and continue to this day. We operate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at this ever busy and ever buzzing media centre that is truly 24-7 with programmes going out all day every day. We run a full and vibrant offer in the restaurant with lots of theatre and a versatile open flame oven, as well as a deli bar, and a separate coffee shop in the reception area.
Christ Church Spitalfields
The amazing and iconic Hawksmoor church cutting an imposing figure opposite the super trendy Spitalfields market. Graysons launched the catering services here following a major renovation and refurbishment project and we operate the Café in the Crypt restaurant, our horsebox coffee shop next to the gardens, a separate café on Hanbury Street, and we market the venue and deliver functions in the Knave, the Crypt, and in Hanbury Hall which range from intimate dinners to large scale awards dinners, funky parties, music gigs, and of course plenty of wedding receptions.
