Mess Deck Café
Sailors were generally well-nourished to keep spirits and energy levels high for their busy days on board the ship, and the staff at HMS Caroline continue this tradition. Why not take a break and relax in the Mess Deck Café on the lower deck, serving local produce? Here you can enjoy a hearty and wholesome drink and snack before you continue your journey through HMS Caroline. The café also showcases a historic recreation of a Light Cruiser’s mess table, ready for the crew to enjoy a meal.
