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

Visited yesterday for my mums 89th birthday. It was her final outing before self isolating due to coronvirus . She is fit and well,has no symptoms of anything however is now choosing to follow the governments guidelines for over 70's. She had a wonderful time.Our table overlooked the gardens. Staff were courteous and professional . The afternoon tea was excellent. Small finger sandwiches and mini cakes which were perfect for my mum. Based on yesterday's visit we hope to host her 90th birthday at Mar Hall for family and friends.Thank You to all staff on duty yesterday.

Waitresses were very helpful, courteous and engaged in some conversation. The bread for the sandwiches was quite thick and dry. This was a gift for my wife’s birthday and added to a very pleasant day.

Lovely Champagne afternoon tea. Sandwiches, scones and cakes were all delicious. Beautiful surroundings, great service. Can't comment on the value for money rating as this was a gift. But wouldn't let me submit review without a rating for this. Very enjoyable experience.

My friend and I enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea on 3rd March, in The Grand Hall which is stunning. The staff were very friendly and approachable and made sure that we were kept stocked up with fresh pots of tea. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were delicious and try as we might, we didn’t manage to eat everything. Will definitely be back.

This was a voucher that I had won so not sure how much it would have been. Had to rate value for money without knowing the value, but we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tea in very lovely surroundings.
