The Meridian Bier Cafe is bright, spacious and clean. What I would normally grade a three, here is a four because the staff was superb. The menu is expansive, the food better than average with a medium cost. Good value. The malt selection is good, and the beer selection is good. Nothing great, but the staff and manager.

We have visited a few times now and enjoy the atmosphere in this bar diner. We usually choose from the light menu and find it good value. The flatbread pizzas generally are very good and Cajun fries a good accompaniment. The sandwiches have plenty fresh filling. Worth a visit if you are in Ayr
