My boyfriend and I came in for a drink on our anniversary. The atmosphere of the place was lovely and the staff were really friendly. I would highly recommend a Nutella Martini!!

The Meridian has such a large menu you could be choosing all night! But what makes this twist on traditional pub setting more interesting is the restaurant setting but pub traditions. They have all sorts of interesting things on each night including a pub-quiz while you eat on Thursdays as well as various different specials and themes each night. A... More

I've lost count how many times I have been to the Meridian, the standard is always extremely high. Food is delicious, staff excel them selves and the cocktails are to die for. Great place for evening meal and lunch

Resturant was lovely, food was really good and cocktails were amazing, only downside is children are allowed in until 10pm which is not the best on a Friday night.

This was a first class experience from beginning to end. All staff were friendly, attentive and certainly made a positive contribution to this thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. The menu was comprehensive but not to the detriment of the food. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. Because we were having such a wonderful time we stayed rather longer than was planned... More

My wife and I frequent the meridian on a regular basis and it only dawned on us today that we have never praised it publicly for being such an outstanding bar/restaurant, by far the best in ayr and prestwick for excellent food and atmosphere any time any day. I would particularly like to compliment and heap praise on the lovely... More

Was in a couple of weeks ago with my mum before we had an overnight stay at a local hotel to celebrate her birthday. Had been in a few years ago and was glad to see that the quality was just as good as we remembered. Had a Panini each which was plenty for lunch & very tasty. The cocktail... More

Excellent central location. Have used this cafe/ bar for years but had never tried a mid week promotion evening, what a great decision for wet Thursday tapas and wine combo- excellent value. Staff were attentive and friendly. Will be back

Went in with my sister for breakfast. I went in with the intention of having the pancakes (my breakfast weak spot!) but ended up with the light breakfast with tea and I wasn't disappointed! It was delicious. Excellent service and very reasonably priced. But next time I am definitely having the pancakes!!
