The Officers' Brick Barracks and Mess Establishment dates to 1815 with additions and alterations in 1826 and the late 1830s. The restored kitchen area includes the main dinner kitchen, three pantries, a cellar as an archaeological display, and the mess sergeant's quarters. The mess consists of a dining room and ante room. The restored Officer's rooms also include a day kitchen. In the main dinner kitchen there is an open hearth and bake oven, and in the day kitchen there is another open hearth. The dinner kitchen offers occasional open-hearth and bake-oven cooking classes, and has ongoing hands-on educational programmes. On a daily basis during the months of July and August, the kitchen is fully animated with staff and volunteers. Starting in 2004 the kitchen will be developing and maintaining a historic kitchen garden.
