visited for lunch with friends. My experience was , food basic, but price okay. Cocktails really expensive and I definitely wouldn't return. Much better eating places in close preximity with better prices , especially drinks.

Been going to the Meridian for a while and it never disappoints, great value for money, usually get the flat bread which always filling for lunch or the fajitas. When ordering cocktails I get the mudslide, loads of alcohol and ice cream in it so its like a dessert! Can't wait to go back.

She was extremely attentive and very knowledgeable about the craft beers much to my husbands delight! She was great with my son and nephew and laughed and joked with them. She made... More

Stopped in here on our way back from Culzean Castle and had lunch. The menu was appealing and the portion sizes were good value. No complaints about the service or atmosphere - a very welcome stop

Went here before our staff night out. Had some great beers that I hadn't had before, haven't been in for anything to eat here before but will be back soon to try some dishes along with more drinks. Close to train station which is handy too.

Brilliant cocktails. Fab food. Excellent value for money. We only went in for a few post-shopping drinks before returning to our hotel for dinner but was impressed with the cleanliness of the place and very nice staff. Food being served to customers looked amazing and good value for money. Drinks were very reasonably priced too.
