Tables such as this were intended for use on a raised wooden dais in a great hall, standing up off the stone floor. So, unlike some examples, the legs have not suffered from exposure to rising damp and consequently the table is very near its original height, with the stretchers well clear of the floor. The mouldings to the rail on the one side would have been seen from the front. High tables of this nature were used for dining by the master and mistress of the house with their guests, the hoi polloi, being seated at trestle tables on the stone floor, below the salt. When not in use the table would be moved back against the wall and used as a serving table.
