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
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.
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.
