There's a reason this bar - bistro is still around. It's consistently good. Good atmosphere, friendly, efficient staff and good, reasonably priced food.

I visited here after going to the cinema. We didn't have a table booked and it was quite busy but we were shown straight away to a table. The menu is very large and varied. My other half and I each had a starter and main and thoroughly enjoyed both. Staff were friendly and we will definitely visit again.

The staff are friendly without being overly intrusive; there are telly's either side of the bar if you want to check... More

We ate here for an evening meal whilst in the area. We had chicken pasta and mushroom risotto, both of which were nice but a little bland, however perfectly edible. We had a sharing pudding which was very nice. A good choice and range of meals and wines at reasonable prices. Atmosphere was good and the service was excellent.

If you are looking for great food at a resonable price where there is always a good atmosphere this is your place. We have come here with all the family and also on date nights and the Meridian never disappoints. Lot's of places in and around Ayr that will charge you more and you won't get half as good a...

A relaxed environment with great food. Now a firm favourite. Service can be hit or miss, but everything else is excellent.

Every Tuesday my daughter and I have lunch and 9 times out of 10 we come here as the food and service is fantastic. The Thai Green Prawn Curry is gorgeous and I tend to order this all the time but have had the lasagne and the spicy flatbread and these are also great. Staff are always very chatty and... More
