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.

Very special meal (autumn menu, 4 courses was delicious - and amazing value). Service is friendly, discreet and knowledgeable. Nice, relaxed atmosphere. Really lucky to have this incredible restaurant so close by (brunch downstairs is also fantastic and doesn't cost much more than a pret sandwich). Already planning future visits.

Since first occasion that we had an evening meal at Tristan in March 2013, the same high standard of excellence has always been maintained each time we dine there. We took a friend with us this time, she was most impressed with the friendly and attentive service that we received from every member of staff and was clearly delighted with... More

Came here with my wife and some good friends and we could not have been happier with the quality of the food and the wonderful, friendly service. Sensibly sourced food in innovative yet utterly perfect combinations. All of this with such reasonable prices? Come and support this incredible restaurant, you won't regret it.

My partner and I visited for dinner recently. the restaurant is set in a 16th century barn, which is light and airy and welcoming. On entering the downstairs reception, we found it un-manned, we waited for a few minutes then decided to venture upstairs to find a member of staff, I mentioned there was another couple downstairs waiting which was...

My boyfriend and I went for a anniversary meal to Tristain during the week. The menu mid-week is very good value for incredible food. The place looked amazing however the service was a bit lacking. Overall a very good restaurant

The restaurant is self is set in a 16th Century building with the décor which is sympathetic to the beams. We had the set lunch... More

Fantastic eating experience in Restaurant Tristan, finding tastes and textures that you'd never normally put together! Run by head chef Tristan and his wife on front of house, I think he has now gained a Michelin star since we visited and it's well deserved, personally I'd say it rivals South Lodge's Pass restaurant for food style but in a different...

Rather than heading into Central London for a nice meal we thought we’d try something different so went down to Horsham to give Restaurant Tristan a go. The dining room itself is not too dissimilar to a renovated barn, with lots of wood and beams. I liked it; certainly a more down to earth décor than some of the more... More
