If you like gourmet cooking, you must try Jacques' Table - a new dining experience in Ayrshire. This is not a restaurant, but a private house, where Jacques will prepare a sumptuous meal, ably assisted by Sylvia, where you feel like a guest at a dinner party. Go with a group of 8 to 10 friends, take your own wine and the "donation" as Jacques likes to call it, of £35 per head is fantastic value. You're welcomed with a Kir Royale and canapes, followed by four courses, coffee and petit fours. When spread over several hours with great company, this is hard to beat. Jacques' Table only opens a few days a month, but you will not forget your visit to sample Jacques' French cuisine. It is a little bit out the way, allow 25 minutes from Ayr and take you sat nav!
