So took my son for his birthday (again) and two weeks later again for my birthday - for us there is nowhere else to go for a celebration. No more to say as I've said it all previously - except thanks everbody for two great evenings out.

We were celebrating my daughter's birthday and we do like to eat well! Long time since I had eaten Michelin starred food in a restaurant and they really do take it to another level - plus some. The 6 course taster menu was a delight. We enjoyed each course with the most superb wines that complimented each dish, glad we... More

I tried to book a table on on line but got no response. When I called the restaurant and said that I had tried to book on line the person on the phone told me that they were a very busy restaurant and didn't I understand that they were Michelin starred. Well, to me it was, get over yourself. You're... More

We enjoyed our trip to Tristan's recently. As we were a group of 6 we opted for the 4 course menu which had a choice of two options for each course, the food was beautifully presented, and I particularly loved the apricot shuffle pudding. The service was friendly and efficient throughout, my only criticism being that the sommelier spent a... More

We had the 6 course tasting menu with wine and we were not disappointed. Every course was delicious and beautifully presented, coupled with the beautiful wines expertly described by the in-house sommelier. Staff were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Fine dining at its best.

We both tried the £45 four course meal. Each course was very tasty with most courses celebrating a variety of different ways of serving the main element. The scallops as a starter were very good. A number of the additional items on each course did not overwhelm the main element. The meal despite the four full courses was not a... More

Had a wonderful meal on Friday evening. Highest class food and service. We were not up for the full 6 or 8 course tasting menus, so it was nice to see a 4 course menu offering the same dishes. A good range of wines by the glass and half-bottle so we were able to construct a matching wine flight for... More

On arrival the lady of the house escorts you to your table, where a sommelier takes your drinks order. The atmosphere is calming pleasant and soothing a hint of music in the background. A true romantic afternoon. The food was exquisite and gastronomic, the portions were just right considering we had 5 courses to get through. we had several menus... 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.
