Having been before for lunch we had not been in the evening and decided on this as it was a special occasion. We were not disappointed. A warm and relaxed welcome from the staff who are also very knowledgeable about the menus. We had the six course taster with wine flight. The sommelier was spot on with the wine for... More

I went with a couple of friends for lunch last week and was so impressed with the menu and quality and presentation of the food. It was an absolute delight and the combination of textures and flavours were memorable. The wood pigeon was excellent and the trifle comprising raspberry, hibiscus, mascarpone and passion fruit was just fantastic. We were well... More

My husband Ian took me to Tristan's for a treat and we had the 6 course taster menu with wine. The sommelier was fantastic and explained about all of the wine and why he had chosen it and gave us a little geographic/history lesson to boot! Food was incredible! The waiters were polite, poised and genuinely interested in the plates... More

Whether visiting for a decadent breakfast, luscious lunch or a special dinner you will not be disappointed. Each dish is presented with flair and imagination delivered by friendly, yet discrete staff. There are morsels of delight on each plate at lunch and dinner accompanying the main ingredients and the Amuse Bouche always perfectly sets the scene for the following courses.... More

Went for our anniversary in April. Well decorated restaurant, great ambience. Waitress attentive. Food brilliant, well presented, paired with rather large glasses of wine for each of the 8 courses. The server forgot one round of drinks on the tasting menu but was corrected promptly. Have recommended to our friends and family and we are looking forward to our next... More

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.
