Food and Drink



Great Tower Cafe

The Great Tower Cafe was built in 1901, and incorporates some of the inner bailey wall. Here you will be able to enjoy a wide range of hot food, light lunches, snacks and sweet treats to help you refuel after the excitement of meeting Henry II.

Naafi Restaurant

Once used by soldiers stationed here at Dover, the NAAFI Restaurant is housed in the 1868 Regimental Institute. There are great views down to the wartime tunnels, the port of Dover and across the Channel.

Secret Wartime Tunnels Tearoom

This small tearoom is built into the original Napoleonic tunnel complex, along with the shop. Choose from a range of hot snacks, sandwiches, cakes and ice-cream either before or after your tour. Or you can pop in to the tearoom even if you're not visiting the tunnels.
