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.

Beautifully presented light lunch

Popped in as a guest of an old friend for a quick beautifully presented two course light lunch. We had Gazpacho crab and fennel followed by smoked salmon with beetroot. Friendly staff on an extremely hot day

Always excellent food and service. Great value lunch menu. Also recently popped in for a delicious breakfast of eggs benedict and coffee - perfect on a warm summer morning when the whole front of the restaurant opens up onto the street.

I visited Tristan's with a group and we had one of the taster menus. The whole evening was a great experience, the service was attentive and there was plenty of time to enjoy the delicious food. They accommodated special requests and I would definitely like to return.

If you like your food to be cooked by true professionals who take pride in their work and you like your food to be presented by experienced and knowledgeable staff then look no further. We booked after reading a review in our guide and were not disappointed, these artisans truly know their job, this is how things should be done... More

A repeat visit to Restaurant Tristan for an anniversary celebration. The food, service and ambience were excellent as ever. Not the cheapest place to eat in Horsham but for that special occasion or even just a monthly outing you cannot beat it.

Found this wonderful gem of a restaurant only recently on a business trip and the food was simply amazing. The service was really good and I can't think of a reason not to give Tristan five stars. I will be back. If you are anywhere near the Horsham area you must try Tristan.

This place never disappoints. Summer menu is amazing, staff attentive and friendly as always and the atmosphere is unpretentious and relaxed. If you haven't been you MUST go.

I've wanted to go here for a while (over 2 years) and it didn't disappoint. My partner and I had the 4 course summer menu for £45 per head and every dish was as delicious as the next. I had Scallops for starter, Crab with truffles (amazing) followed by Lamb and Goat - amazing mini lamb samosa finished off with... More

We go to Tristans once a year for my husband's birthday as a treat. The food is superb and service excellent. Our meal last week was perfect - the amuse bouche was delicious and the rest of the food followed suit. I had scallops, asparagus with 64 degree duck egg, followed by stone bass. I like that there are different... More

Ate here as a table of 6 for lunch to celebrate my father's birthday and we all had an amazing time and were blown away by the food and service. The amuse bouche of apple pie was out of this world...the flavours and textures were out of this world and even my dad (who is a 'meat and two veg'... More
