Popped in for a "cheap" lunch (so we thought) menu plentiful light bites, soups, tapas, pizza, wraps, to steak pie, Mac & cheese. portion sizes were good.
A bit disappointed in kids menu as son really wanted a burger. Asked table staff if this could be possible as no burger on the kids meal. Was told no wasnt possible to get small burger as only one burger size!!?? But when burger arrived it looked/tasted handmade shame they couldn't make a smaller sized burger. Anyway since my son really fancied a burger we got him one. Which ended up quite expensive as we paid for 3 adult meals. £40 quid for a light lunch!?

Service was poor very slow taking drinks orders, at least a 15 min wait to get bill after we asked for it. Then another 15 min wait for the credit card machine. 10 min wait after drinks orders glasses pretty small also.

Food i must say was super scrummy absolutely no fault at all, very tasty & good decent portion sizes. Shame about kids menu as most of stuff on it my son didn't like. He only could manage half his meal.

Good choice of drinks and decent food choices. Nice decor and staff were smart and knowledgeable.
Right at the top end of Ayr and near to visit the seafront.
Owner has a few venues and all that I have been in are first class.

We live in Ayr and always go to The Meridian for drinks and food usually once per week but sometimes more. Visited on Saturday night and the place was totally full not one seat available. We were informed there would be a small wait for a table for a meal which we were fine with as we hadn't booked. Ordered our food and it came out quickly and it was roasting hot. Throughout the evening we were checked on by very pleasant staff who also took our orders for drinks and they were also brought to us in a timely manner all night. Every single member of staff here are excellent unlike other venues in Ayr, all well trained and always inviting and smiling. I cannot recommend this place enough to anyone either visiting or from the area. If you are planning to have a meal book before hand so you are not disappointed. So overall food 10/10. Staff 10/10. Atmosphere 10/10.
