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

Ate here March 9. Tapas were just ok. Ate again March 10th. Pizza. Astonishing bad. Was a kind of flatbread. Hard crusty and inedible. And chef - who puts pickled anchovies on pizza adding the flavour of vinegar to it ? You use anchovies marinated in olive oil to complement the olives. You use mozzarella not cheddar cheese and if...

We have been visiting Meridian for years now, either by ourselves or with the kids. The staff are very attentive and service has always been very good. Some staff have been there for years, like Yvonne, who is lovely. The food is great, the only one thing I would say is that I would like to see a new, different... More

Staff very friendly and food was lovely. We hadn't booked but staff accommodated us by giving us a table for an hour which suited us. It can be quite noisy due to being busy so not for a quiet meal out but we loved the atmosphere.

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.

Visited with my husband , son and nephew for Friday dinner. Have visited numerous times before and always had good, attentive service. This night our waitress was Chloe. 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
