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.
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 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
My Aunt and I enjoyed our time having Afternoon Tea in the Grand Hall - fabulous. Thank you for looking after us while we were there.
Monica really looked after us well. Thank you!
Very attentive staff. Nothing was too much trouble.
My group had a Fabulous Afternoon Tea in the grand hall. All the Staff were very attentive, the food looked so appetising and was delicious. Wonderful start to our Christmas festivities. Thank you for looking after us.
One of th3 best value afternoon teas around. Lovely friendly service, nothing too much trouble.
Had a lovely day with my friends at Mar Hall yesterday, a lovely atmosphere and the staff were very welcoming and attentive. Would highly recommend.
Prefect venue for a special afternoon tea. The venue is ideal and the service second to none. We loved the talented pianist on the grand piano who entertained us with he singing and playing. Goes without saying that the food was excellent too. Couldn’t beat the freshly made scones, home baking and lashings of piping hot tea!
Very relaxing atmosphere, excellent service and bottomless coffee pot.
Loved it, will come back again for Afternoon Tea.
First visit and certainly won’t be my last ........went with my daughter who is a type 1 diabetic the hotel offered alternatives from the normal afternoon tea which was excellent ......surroundings staff and food all excellent Can’t wait for my next visit
Everything first class.Slightly confused about the cost. The web site for afternoon tea stated £29. I was quoted £25.50 which was excellent value. However this advert is quoting £22.
Fantastic venue and beautiful surroundings. Staff were very welcoming and first class food and service. Definitely worth a return visit.
We come to Mar Hall regularly and love it. One very small moan - tea and coffee were merely warm. Staff were lovely.
Afternoon tea at Mar Hall was disappointingly average. The service was fine but the quality of the cakes for a 5 star establishment was extremely poor. We will not be rushing back.
Whole experience was wonderful staff so attentive getting cushions for my mum etc thank you for giving her a lovely treat on her birthday.
First experience visiting Mar Hall which we had been really looking forward to - this was a gift for my friend's birthday. We both took the day off work and traveled 50 minutes to get there. The setting was outstanding and relaxing atmosphere. We took some gorgeous photos. On arrival the waitress asked me 3 times to email the voucher (I had already done all of this prior to booking via telephone) this should be organised on the booking itself or at the end of the meal. The girls serving us were professional and friendly however the food was disappointing. Both our sandwiches were rock solid, not a great selection of filler - we both don't like salmon and the other two sandwiches were tiny. One scone and the coffee was cold. I have been to several afternoon tea's as I usually purchase these for family/friends birthday's. I didn't have the heart to complain whilst we were out for my friend's birthday sometimes it can set a bad vibe. I work for an international airline and don't like to complain to the waiters as it is not their fault. We both left feeling unsatisfied and also not full at all and I know how it feels when customers complain. We had to stop on way home for food. I had planned to come back to Mar Hall to try the spa however I am not sure I would come back in the future and I wouldn't recommend it to my friends and family. I felt it was a waste of money and petrol. Expected much better from such a well known venue.
Lovely- as always. Booked through an ItIsOn voucher, would struggle to justify the normal price.
This was a very disappointing experience. I had booked on a day when I was told there wouldn’t be a wedding, but there was one in full flow when we arrived. It was noisy and cold ( doors were open to garden where all the smokers were, with the smell blowing back into the hall). My complaint about all this was met by a half hearted apology from a manager with a painted on smile and shrug of her shoulders. I was offered a glass of Prosecco (I don’t drink) or my voucher back to book another day (I work midweek and nearly every weekend there has a wedding on and they have no alternate space for their other guests to use).When the wedding party eventually moved to a marquee (three quarters of an hour after staff said they would be, the staff started clearing up and the same manager started to clear a sofa next to us by banging on cushions and chairs and creating a dust cloud everywhere. The food was ok though their Crostini snack was so hard it could be called a Bricktini and one of the sandwiches was like a door stopper, The tea was a couple of Twinings teabags (As a supposed five star establishment this was beyond disappointing suggesting no interest in serving decent/interesting tea options) thrown in a pot with no idea how to make/serve green tea. To add insult to injury, when we left, a bunch of staff were talking amongst themselves at the door, making no attempt whatsoever to say thank you or goodbye. Apparently you only get that if you’re famous or waving the dosh about. Unbelievable.
I had taken a friend for afternoon tea for her Birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed it
I was given a gift voucher for afternoon tea. Having never been to Mar Hall for afternoon tea it was really a lovely experience. I would recommend this to anyone who wishes to experience a lovely afternoon. Staff were friendly and very attentive.
I would like to say waitress service was excellent. Could not have asked for better from these waitresses. Friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. That said I felt it would have been nice to have been given a few choices for sandwiches. Not really for my 90 year old mother and her elderly friend. The scones perfect. The tea could have been hotter and coffee very weak and not very warm. My sister is gluten free which was given to her but the cakes, I felt could have been better. Even merengues. This was a birthday gift for my 90 year old mother from tw of her grandsons and I do feel she was disappointed , Again I cannot fault the service, waitresses excellent.
Staff very friendly and helpful. Afternoon tea was excellent.
I love coming to Mar Hall whether for Afternoon Tea; Lunch or an overnight stay.Its always great. It has the atmosphere of a fabulous old house where guests are welcomed into comfortable luxury. The staff treat everyone as if each individual is their most important guest and it’s just lovely . Looking forward to next time .
We really enjoyed our visit to Mar Hall yesterday. The food and service were excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely return.
