On the table sit wooden plates. The household may have used pewter plates instead. Spenser would have had a good diet consisting of different kinds of meat, including deer, sheep, domestic and wildfowl, goat and (more rarely) pork; seafood; various grains, particularly wheat, barley and oats; milk products; fruit and vegetables from an orchard and kitchen garden that he probably had (see Tower House Parlor: Apples); and probably honey and beer.
Other table objects here, in the Great Hall and in the Ground Floor Parlor are modeled after Tudor-era facsimiles in wood and pewter found at Barrycourt Castle, Co. Cork.
