The Servants Hall is a common room for domestic workers in a great house. The term usually refers to the servants dining room.
If there is no separate sitting room, the Servants' Hall doubles as the place servants may spend their leisure hours and serves as both sitting room and dining room.
Meals in the Servants Hall were sometimes very formal affairs, depending on the size and formality of the household. At dinner in a formal house, the Butler and Housekeeper presided over the table much as the master and lady of the house did "above stairs".
This room is now convered into an appartment and although layout is the same its no longer the same function.
