Staying in Ayr for a few days. Passed this place on way home from beach. Decided to give it try. There was a good ambience as it was busy with theatre goers. The food was good decent value with friendly staff. Would visit when back in Ayr.

Smiths Bar, Ayr is an immensely popular bar and restaurant in a good location. It offers drink specials and shows regular football in the bar. Prices are very good and the service is good.
