About Grand Hall

The Grand Hall is at the heart of Mar Hall. Formerly known as the Picture Gallery, it is 118 feet in length. This classic environment is furnished with French style Louis XIV chairs and low coffee tables. Its ornate high ceilings, paintings, tapestries and carpeting capture the breath.

The 20ft windows allow ample natural light and views of the formal gardens, where a vast Lebanese Cedar resides. A resident pianist performs on the Baby Grand to create an appropriate mood for those enjoying a light snack, lunch or Afternoon Tea.

Informal Dining:
Light lunches and snacks are served Monday to Saturday in the historic Grand Hall from 12 noon until 4pm in a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere. Sunday Lunch is served between 12 noon and 2pm.

Afternoon Tea:
Afternoon Tea can be enjoyed in the Grand Hall every day between 2:30pm and 5pm (reservations required 24 hours in advance). This includes:
Freshly prepared sandwiches, traditional, home-baked Scottish cakes, scones and your choice of speciality teas and coffees - £22.50 per person

Add a little sparkle to Afternoon Tea and include a glass of champagne - £34.00 per person

Loved the ambience but was disappointed in service. Very few staff around and had to ask 2 staff for fresh tea. Asked for water but this was not brought Have been for afternoon tea on previous 2 occasions and lunch once and had no complaints Think more staff on duty would give better customer service

Bought afternoon tea with Prosecco but didn’t get it as no one came near us after serving our tea. Phoned to complain but they said manager would phone me back today but still waiting!

This is the second time I’ve been for afternoon tea and it was just as good as the first. Sandwiches, scones and cakes were delicious and the tea was replenished which makes a vast difference. The staff were friendly, polite and helpful

Food and service were exceptional however, the attentive staff and talented chef are let down by the lack of atmosphere in the Grand Hall- with no music playing it feels a bit like a library- ladies toilets are quite far away and very cold- toilet flush has a sign asking people to be gentle and flush a few times, not what you’d expect from a five-star hotel. Hotel itself could do with a lick of paint and modernisation.

We had such a lovely welcome and staff were wonderful. We are both disabled and the staff made sure we were seated at a comfortable table. We were provided with a delicious afternoon tea then when I looked for my voucher I couldn’t find it. The waitress very kindly told me not to worry and said I could call the restaurant later with the details which I did. First class service. Thank you x

The service was great, very attentive, nothing was a problem. There are never enough sandwiches included in an afternoon tea but this one had a couple of different things as well as sandwiches.
