what is the typical furniture in the great hall in castles?
the place where you get food
yes all of them had
Inside a castle all they did was just eat their meals in the medival great hall.
Actually, they were big cold rooms. When castles were first built they had one purpose and that was defense. People didn't have much privacy nor did they expect it so they mainly did everything in the great hall. Eventually individual rooms were built, but even these were cold and uncomfortable. One reason the great hall was used so much that is where the fire place was and usually that was the only heat source. We have a romantic view of castles, but it wasn't until much later that they began to have the opulent furniture and beautiful things.

Castles didn't have "mess halls" but they did have great halls that served for everything. People ate there, sometimes slept there, and had meetings there. On the whole the it was a pretty busy place usually with rushes on the floor. The rushes were removed once a year and by that time they were pretty stinky. When people ate they often threw food on the floor so rotten food, dog waste, and other critters were in the rushes. The great hall would be rather smoky too. Tallow candles were used and they gave off a rancid smell and oily smoke. There was often a fireplace at one end of the hall, but it only warmed the area around it so the other end was usually cold and damp. In older castles the great hall was the main room of the castle and as castles evolved bedrooms were added.
The usefulness of stone castles came to an end with the invention of the cannon - the Turks used these with great success during the Crusades - if my memory serves me well.
Medieval castles are used for protection and a place for trading.

As far as I know wooden castles were used for the same purposes that stone castles were used. But, they only existed in areas where brick and mortar wasn't known.
