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 afternoon tea in a beautiful setting. Mar hall is a beautiful old building. Service was excellent our waitress very friendly and welcoming.
The food is always fresh and delicious and the service is great. A real treat.
Very enjoyable. Very good selection of cakes, scones were delicious . Sandwiches fairly standard . Extra tea was available when we asked for it . Service good and staff were very pleasant.
Unfortunately the pianist wasn't present on our visit, but the Grand Hall is a wonderful place to take afternoon tea.
Very welcoming and friendly staff
There was absolutely no atmosphere. Last year there was a singer and music. This year you could have heard a pin drop
Another fantastic afternoon tea!
I had booked for Festive Afternoon Tea as a Christmas treat for my husband and was extremely disappointed with what was served up to us. It had no resemblance whatsoever to what was discribed as Festive Afternoon Tea in the brochure on Marhall website. There was no..... Warn Cranberry Scone, Chocolate Ganache, Winter Berry and Brandy Trifle, Baileys and Honeycombe Chocolate Pots, Roast Turkey and Cranberry Brioche Buns, Smoked Salmon and Cucumber Soda Bread , Katie Rodgers Crowdie with Rocket Mayo Beetroot Bread, Mini Beef and Chestnut Pie. Nor were we offered the Selection of Speciality Teas and Coffees. What we did get was a mediocre selection of sandwiches, mini cakes and plain scones with ordanary tea. When I complained to the server I was told everything was "subject to availability". When I complained for the third time I was given £10 off the £49 bill. I think this is a case for Trading Standards who I will be in touch with in the New Year regarding this matter.
This was a special treat for our two grandchildren and the lady, that provided our service was outstanding. She went out off her way to include the kid's and this was very much appreciated, thanks again for a lovely day.
Lovely afternoon tea in a calm but festive atmosphere.
Relaxing friendly atmosphere. Would highly recommend the afternoon tea.
Lovely afternoon tea in a gorgeous setting
Beautiful experience from start to finish and the extra plate to celebrate my birthday was just awesome
Lovely atmosphere. Attentive staff. Scones amazing
NO NEED AS THE ABOVE SAYS IT ALL
Food was fabulous and our server Karin was excellent.We enjoyed the relaxing ornate surroundings and will be back.
The setting and service was fabulous, cakes and scones were delicious. We did have to ask for hot water as the coffee was a tad cold for our taste. Also, we caught a cold breeze from the terrace door a little too often unfortunately. Overall though, a wonderful afternoon spent with attentive service in a delightful setting.
Another great afternoon tea yesterday in the beautiful Grand Hall. The staff were very friendly, nothing was too much trouble and the afternoon tea itself very tasty. There were little barbecued beef pies which were absolutely delicious. Looking forward to another visit in the near future.
Lovely relaxed environment. Lovely attentive staff. Had a lovely afternoon
An absolutely lovely afternoon tea. Great food and attention and service. I will go back soon.
I always love a visit to Mar Hall, such a beautiful place and always feels special particularly at Christmas. This visit was for an afternoon tea with my aunt. Adrian and his team went above and beyond to look after my aunt as her mobility is not so good. The afternoon tea was fantastic with lots of delicious sandwiches and cakes, and fresh tea offered. Thank you to all the staff who looked after us.
Staff were excellent, surroundings were excellent, food was excellent To sum it up, an excellent experience, looking forward to going again
