Description: Housed in a 16th Century building in the historic town of Horsham...
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.

Romantic anniversary meal

My husband and I decided to treat ourselves for our first anniversary, and this was a treat. We opted for the 6course taster menu with wine and the food and drinks were INCREDIBLE. Service was also excellent. If I could afford to come more I would, best restaurant in Horsham :)

From the moment we arrived the staff were charming, attentive and knowledgeable - we were early for our table so we had a drink downstairs ... it is a shame that they don't have a bar, but ... The food was lovely - clever and beautifully presented ... The cheese selection was superb...

I must admit, my husband booked our anniversary meal here whilst I felt anxious. We went about six years ago and had ok food and what I considered poor service (valentines night and seated on a table with others). Anyway, our experience this time couldn't have been more different. The food was amazing. Whilst I didn't feel every course was... More

Not only is the food always top class....and technically brilliant...the taste combinations never cease to surprise!!! The food is beautifully presented and delicious!! But unlike some Michelin star restaurants you can go home feeling hungry! Not at the Tristan....if you want more bread you can have it! If you want extra veg with your meal you can have it..Nothing is... More

We visited Tristans last night and had the six course taster menu. It was absolutely superb, without doubt the best meal we have had out in years! Every single course was divine and the matched wine totally delicious. Highlight for me was the foie gras, which was melt in the mouth and paired with the most fantastic brioche and honeycomb....

6 of us went for a Saturday lunch birthday celebration. For all our first visit to Tristan's and very pleased we were too. Several menu options 3,4, 6 or 8 courses with their taster menu! Plumbed for the 3/4 options and highly impressed with some white inspired dished. All of us enjoyed each course and were very pleased with the... More

Third visit in the last two years and went as a party of four and we all had the 4 course menu. Food beautifully presented and extremely tasty. Great wines to accompany - try the Albourne Pinot Noir - an excellent English wine. Very happy with attentive but discreet service and although not a cheap experience it is excellent value... More
