Food and Drink



Naafi Restaurant

Once used by soldiers stationed Dover Castle, 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. The NAAFI sells hot and cold drinks, snacks, sandwiches and a range of hot meals that change with the seasons. A children's menu is available. We always have vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free options available.

You can find allergen and nutritional information here.

Secret Wartime Tunnels Tearoom

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

Great Tower Coffee Shop

This welcoming family-friendly café tucked in the walls of the medieval castle is the perfect stop off for a hot or cold drink, light lunch, slice of cake or delicious cream tea.
