High Tea (tea or meat tea) is one name for the early evening meal. It is associated with the working class and is typically eaten between 5 pm and 7 pm. High tea typically consists of a hot dish, followed by cakes and bread, butter and jam. Occasionally there would be cold cuts of meat, such as ham. The term was first used around 1825, and “high” is used in the sense of well-advanced (like high noon) to signify that it was taken later in the day than afternoon tea.
Treat yourself to high tea at Gretna Hall from 3-6pm daily – choose from a selection of soups, hot dishes, scones and of course tea or coffee to finish.
Fancy something a little lighter? Why not try the new picnic menu at Gretna Hall? Sit looking down over the green fields over the village out towards the Solway and even the Lake District on a super clear day! Set underneath the canopy of the majestic trees which line the drive, your picnic will be set up on the lawn for you with a picnic blanket and a wicker basket full of goodies for you to enjoy.

- A bottle of red or white wine
- A selection of finger sandwiches
- Mini pasties and quiche
