the bar


the smoking goat is an atmospheric basement bar located in the most historic part of ayr.

we aim to supply the finest locally and nationally brewed ales, quality wines from the old and new worlds and really great, freshly-brewed teas and coffees.

if you're hungry, our food menu incorporates fresh, organic, local and home-baked produce, served up in the relaxed surroundings of this 18th century former bank vault (see 'the building'). on sundays the daily menu rests and we serve up some classic roast dinners - cooked with affection and not shy on trimmings!

we offer great music (both recorded & live), we screen great, classic movies and even show the occasional sporting event.
get your thinking caps on for our classic Tuesday quiz which'll not only test your grey matter but also reward the winning team.

the smoking goat incorporates an outside terrace in which to enjoy the long, hot Ayrshire afternoons. Ahem...!
