Afternoon talk: the tale of the cook

Life, food and drink aboard the Mary Rose.

Join us for a brand new talk, led by one of our expert costumed guides, which explores the role of the cook, and eating and drinking aboard the Mary Rose.

What were conditions like for the crew? What did they eat and drink, who prepared and served their food, and what do we know about the ship’s cook? What tools did the cook have to hand?

Find out fascinating facts about food and drink aboard, what did it taste like, was it nourishing and did the crew really only drink beer, and what tools did the cook have to hand?

Limited places available – book now to ensure your space!

Please note: the price of this event covers entry into the talk only; you will need a valid Mary Rose ticket to visit the rest of the museum.
