Truly Provencial

le sel bistro

Over the years Le Sel has developed and grown to include a French Style Bistro. The owners created once a month dinner called “A Notre Table” which aimed to bring people together for a long table dinner.


 The idea was to do simple clean and delicious seasonal dishes using local produce wherever possible and a mixture of local and French wines. The menu changes each month and booking are essential as spaces are limited.
