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

We were a little disappointed with our visit for afternoon tea. The grand hall had a wedding reception and the pianist/vocalist was loud and unmusical. We were easily relocated to the bar where. The setting was much quieter. The afternoon tea itself was only of average quality. The scones did not seem fresh and the cakes were a bit past their best. All in all we were disappointed. On a previous visit for dinner in October 2017, the dinning room was cold, the service average and the food below what we would have expected of a hotel of your claimed quality. We have reluctantly decided not to come back and certainly we will not be recommending you to friends. Sorry to give you such negative feedback. James Pettinger

Every time I come here either to stay or for Afternoon Tea I am never disappointed. Mar Hall is just so beautiful you couldn't wish for a nicer place. The Staff are very friendly & efficient. Nothing was too much trouble. It is also the best Afternoon Tea I've ever had & Ive had a few! Such good value for money. Such a spectacular setting for a Wedding too.

Had a most enjoyable time. Food was excellent. Nice relaxed atmosphere. I was with my elderly mother who doesn't like low soft seats, she would have preferred a firmer higher seat but there was no option for alternative seating. Could this may be something you could maybe take on board? Will definitely come again.

My friend who is 90 and myself had a wonderful afternoon with you yesterday. She is not very fit now and so outings are limited. She said to me today how much she had enjoyed our afternoon tea, both the beautiful hall,the Christmas tree and the really lovely food. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented and it was just so nice to sit in that beautiful room and chat for a couple of hours. You have a very kind and attentive staff. Thank you

Had Afternoon tea here which was in the beautiful Grand Hall but unfortunately at times a little chilly but it was about minus 5 outside! Sandwiches, scones and cakes all very nice and had a Christmas theme as mince pies and stollen included. Staff are excellent --friendly and efficient. Would certainly go again.

Have been for afternoon tea on many occasions. Was very disappointed yesterday on size of my vegetarian sandwiches. Compared to my friends non veggie selection it didn't match up. They were cut far too small. It's first time I have felt disappointed. I am returning with a friend this Wednesday so hope you can improve on this for me. I ended up eating too many cakes just to fill myself up.

Had a voucher for Afternoon Tea and came with my sister as part of a birthday treat. Can't fault it . . . staff were welcoming, friendly, helpful and downright nice! Efficient without being obtrusive - perfect. Great selection of sandwiches, scones, jams, pastries and cakes, and even a 'doggie bag' for what we didn't/couldn't eat. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and felt very private, even though we were sitting in the Great Hall. Would definitely recommend it and hope to be back in the future.
