Description: Housed in a 16th Century building in the historic town of Horsham, Restaurant Tristan opened in 2008 and has been a firm favourite with local foodies ever since. Inside, original wooden beams contrast with contemporary style to create an intimate setting for lunch or dinner. Chef and Proprietor Tristan Mason worked in top restaurants like The Greenhouse and Mirabelle before becoming Head Chef at The Hare where he achieved his first Michelin Star. The menu at Restaurant Tristan is predominantly British with some creative French influences, with dishes like terrine of pheasant and turbot with truffle risotto taking centre stage. Ingredients are locally sourced wherever possible and the extensive wine list is designed to complete this truly unforgettable dining experience.

This is one of our favourites. Just the right mix of great service and informality. Food as ever was great and the souflee never disappoints.

Their new lunch menu is outstanding and a well deserved Michelin Star. Highly recommended for a special lunchtime treat with 3 courses for £25 which I also think is great value for this quality. We use Tristan a lot and it has always impressed.

Lots of people enjoy this restaurant but we were there for lunch and the food was awfully salty. Considering the price this as unacceptable. Nothing more to say

The restaurant is fine dining at its best in central Horsham. A warm, quiet and sophisticated experience. The food is stunning and you're left with perfect portions and flavours galore.

We have dined at Restaurant Tristan on four occasions and this visit didn't disappoint. We opted for the six course tasting menu, one with the recommended wine and one without. The whole experience was sublime, the food and service was absolutely excellent - the only criticism was that the restaurant lighting let it down! We wanted to be able to... More

Actually a business lunch. A nice friendly welcome when we arrived. Food was very good and nicely presented. Service was a little over the top but not unpleasantly so. Overall it was a good experience and I will be back.

Had lunch on a Saturday in December to celebrate our son's birthday. We've even at Tristan's before, but this was the first time with our teenage children, and the first time since Tristan's received their Michelin star. We had the 4 course Christmas menu, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The flavours well matched, and presentation lovely. It was busier... More

My wife treated me to my birthday lunch and we loved it. I was worried when the starter arrived that I would still be hungry when I left but by the end of the meal we were both pleasantly stuffed. The service was friendly and the setting, upstairs, very pleasant indeed. Not as expensive as I feared and will definitely... More

We dined here for the first time. Due to popularity we were seated downstairs - exactly the same layout, menu and service so no need to be concerned if this happens. It was a very cold evening and the only downside was that it was actually a little draughty in the corner table we had. Service excellent throughout and 'although'... More

We try to go to Tristans once or twice a year as a treat. Today we tried the tasting menu that was created for Christmas. This was £40 per person and with four of us the bill was just over £200. We did not have wine as it was lunch and I had to drive. What we received tasted great.... More
